A climate crisis, warming weather and the failure of conservatives — particularly, Donald Trump-supporting conservatives — to listen and obey scientists’ long-running warnings will lead to more viruses, more health risks and more deaths in the next 50 years, according to a new study published in Nature.
Oh those deplorable deplorables and their deplorable ways. The researchers didn’t mention conservatives, of course. But it was implied. After all, it’s not the Democrats who question the narratives of climate change alarmists. It’s always the dastardly conservatives, it’s always the dastardly deplorables.
“Over the next 50 years,” The New York Times wrote, “climate change will drive thousands of viruses to jump from one species of mammal to another [the study stated]. The shuffling of viruses among animals may increase the risk that one will jump into humans and cause a new pandemic, the researchers said.”
Oh me. Oh my. And me without my government-approved face gear and rubber ducky gloves!
This is the left’s next maneuver to control the populations of the world: jumping like a virus from coronavirus to climate change — all with the intended effect of hyping already-hyped fears so as to justify government intervention into private lives and bureaucratic dictates on private citizens and ultimately, total top-down globalist rule of citizens of the world.
Haven’t we already learned under two-plus years of COVID-19-tied lies and deceptions and ridiculous science-not-science that the medical bureaucrats are not to be trusted?
Viruses do what viruses do — and that is, they move from human to animal to animal; they evolve and mutate; they go through stages of natural selection; they spread, they replicate, they survive.
And they survive because they’re part of God’s plan — they contain genetic information and are crucial to both maintenance of the ecosystems and the health of scores of organisms.
What’s more, they’re more numerous than the stars in the universe.
“If all viruses suddenly disappeared,” said epidemiologist Tony Goldberg, in BBC, “the world would be a wonderful place for about a day and a half, and then we’d all die — and that’s the bottom line. All the essential things they do in the world far outweigh the bad things.”
But in the minds of leftists, viruses are tools for political control and weapons to shape the world’s governments.
The coronavirus has given these globalist-minded types the fear they need to call for crazy crackdowns on individual liberties. And now these same people are looking to extend this state of fear so as to complete “The Great Reset” of society.
“The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world,” said World Economic Forum president and founder Klaus Schwab.
What’s the mean?
“The first [agenda item is to] steer the market toward fairer outcomes” through tax policy, trade agreements and the resetting of corporate missions to reflect social justice “stakeholder” wills, not shareholder — I.e., profit-loss — realities, Schwab wrote in June 2020.
“The second component of a Great Reset agenda would ensure that investments advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability …” he wrote.
Wokeism at its finest.
“The third and final priority of a Great Reset agenda is to harness the innovations for the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges,” he wrote.
Thus the skip from pandemic to environmentalism.
Thus the jump from COVID to climate change.
“As the world changes, the face of disease will change, too,” said Gregory Albery, a co-author of the Nature study and a disease ecology expert at Georgetown University, as The Guardian reported. “This work provides more incontrovertible evidence that the coming decades will not only be hotter, but sicker.”
Get the governments of the world to regulate human activity so as to save the planet from environmental degradations that will spur virus growth and disease.
At least 10,000 types of viruses with potential to infect humans are “silently” circulating in animals, the study says. And because of farming, because of building, because of human uses of land — like home and business and highway construction — these animals will cross-contact with more humans, and ultimately, infect more humans with their pesky, dangerous viruses.
Climate change is fueling the danger, these alarmists write in Nature.
It’s climate change, after all, they argue, that brings about droughts that dries up water and endangers food that animals eat — and it’s farming and human development that clears land areas where animals would’ve called home. And the vulnerabilities have grown so great that 3,139 mammals could actually move by 2070 — leading to 15,000-plus possible transmissions of viruses among animals and then, eventually, humans.
People could die.
People could die!
“We aren’t keeping an eye on [these changes] and it makes pandemic risk everyone’s problem,” said Colin Carlson, who co-authored the report. “Climate change is creating innumerable hot spots for zoonotic risk right in our backyard. We have to build health systems that are ready for that.”
Happily, the WEF has its Great Reset plan.
That it will completely kill the Constitution and crumble the idea of individual rights coming from a Creator, not government, is something Americans aren’t supposed to notice — or fight. After all, it’s for the good of the planet.
This is the madness of the globalist and collectivist crowd.
This is where the left in America, the Democrats in America, want to lead.
From coronavirus crackdowns to climate change clamps on liberties — to a great reset, a “build back better” moment, a new world order, a one-world order. The rhetoric changes; the plot stays the same.
God-given freedoms are in peril in America and it’s incumbent on those who see the dangers to fight as if the lives of their children depended on a win. Because it does. Because they do. America is the last wall of defense for those who need freedom to live; America’s the final frontier these globalists have to conquer to achieve their visions of dominance and rule.
If “God-given” falls, government will become god.
