CBC Imagines A Link Between ‘Climate Change’ And Coronavirus

Is anyone surprised?

See, they have no idea whether this is all your fault for driving to a steak house last week, but, they’ll fear-monger on it anyway. From the link

We still don’t know where the 2019 novel coronavirus came from. The leading suspicion is an animal host – a bat, likely – infected another animal that has more contact with humans.

That’s how the 2012 MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) outbreak is believed to have played out. A bat, at some point in the past, infected a camel, which may have sneezed on a human.

One of the reasons the human and animal worlds are bumping up against each other is a changing climate. Research suggests that warmer winters and springs are keeping bats, for example, around longer because the insects they feed on also like the warmth. And this may affect the spread of diseases bats carry.

“Climate change, coupled with other human environmental changes like urbanization and habitat destruction, is bringing us closer to wildlife,” said Dr. Katie Clow, a professor at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph. “So there’s this very complex interplay of many different changes happening all at the same time.”

The horror of a minimal 1.5F increase in global temperatures since 1850. Expect more fear mongering.

    Let us know when they’re ready to talk about the two bio-warfare labs right down the road from Wuhan.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Not to worry.

    The Cons will continue to cut NIH and CDC funding so that the research that annoys Cons will disappear. No more climate research! No more environmental research! Yay, Cons!

    Esper approves DoD housing at 4 military bases for coronavirus quarantine as 8th case confirmed in the US

    Right now there are 12,000 confirmed cases of nCov. 8 in the USA.

    Twenty-five countries and rising, but lets keep impeaching Trump. I can see it now. Everyone will be dead on Capital Hill but Shitt and Nadless and they will be holding basement hearings with dead skeletons demanding them to tell us lies, tell us sweet little lies.

    Bodies will be scattered around the capital steps and they will be standing in front of a camera that still has a red light on it, the cameraman a skeleton Telling us how evil Orange Man Bad is.

    Shitt and Nadler will high five each other when they realize the whole world is dead and they are the only two people on the planet immune to the Virus with one exception. Nanny Pelosi who will then show up and pull them into the basement Bunker and together the three of them will live out their lives hi fiving and telling each other how they finally got Orange Man bad.

    On the way to the bunker The world will be saved because the virus will bite all three of them and DIE!!!

    Far-Right Imagines A Link Between ‘Bio-Warfare’ And Coronavirus

    Conservatives love them some conspiracy theories.

    https://www.politifact.com/article/2020/jan/31/readers-guide-misinformation-about-coronavirus/

    https://www.factcheck.org/2020/01/coronavirus-misinformation-spreads-like-a-virus/

    Multiple social media posts falsely claimed that the virus has been patented and a vaccine is already available. That’s not true; the patents the posts refer to pertain to different viruses. See “Social Media Posts Spread Bogus Coronavirus Conspiracy Theory” for more.

    Websites and social media posts circulated the erroneous claim that there are “thousands” or “10,000” dead as a result of the Wuhan coronavirus. When we published this story on Jan. 27, the estimated death toll was 81. As of Jan. 30, it had risen to 170 — all of them in China. See “Misinformation on Coronavirus Death Toll” for more.

    Social media posts falsely claimed that a “Chinese spy team” working in a Canadian government lab sent “pathogens to the Wuhan facility” prior to the coronavirus outbreak in China. Two Canadian agencies told us those claims are wrong. See “Coronavirus Wasn’t Sent by ‘Spy’ From Canada” for more.

    A conspiracy theory website distorted the facts about an emergency preparedness exercise to suggest that the “GATES FOUNDATION & OTHERS PREDICTED UP TO 65 MILLION DEATHS” from the coronavirus now spreading. The event dealt with a hypothetical scenario involving a fictional virus. See “New Coronavirus Wasn’t ‘Predicted’ In Simulation” for more.

    Numerous social media posts falsely suggest that because Clorox and Lysol products list “Human Coronavirus” on their bottles, the new coronavirus driving the outbreak in China was already known. It wasn’t. There are many human coronaviruses, and these products were tested against a strain that causes the common cold. See “No, Clorox and Lysol Didn’t Already ‘Know’ About New Coronavirus.”

      @Elwood

      Nothing is known. Nothing is certain.

      Nothing Factcheck or politifact says is anything more than an educated guess.

      Because China wont give us any information. Youtube is full of actual videos from Wuhan and first hand testimony that things are indeed horrible over there. One video was particularly heartwrenching. A woman was begging to be let into the hospital because her daughter had cancer and was in pain. She was screaming just because of this virus does not mean the rest of us who are sick have no right to go to the hospital.

      The men did nothing. Said nothing.

      Another video of a nurse screaming at her boss that she was sick and needed to be seen but said she had to stand in line and then there was no guarantee. She said that Nurses and doctors should be seen right away or else everyone will start calling in sick or not coming to work. She is of course right.

      During this interview another nurse is overheard on the phone demanding her sick leave be approved or she would just not show up for work!

      Conspiracies are everywhere but it is videos like this FROM CHINA itself that fuels them.

    Funny. I just watched an extended interview with Bill Gates about a week ago in which he is known to have built dozens of rich man bunkers all over the place. He said that his greatest fear was a pandemic. And he did talk about his foundation running simulations which indicated that there could easily be this many deaths.

    Does that not concern you, Elwood, that a hardcore leftist has built a dozen rich man bunkers and has his foundation running pandemic simulations? Does that not suggest that perhaps the leftist billionaire is either a whack job or else he is privy to information You and I do not have.

    Do you believe Elwood that China and the USA are telling you EVERYTHING? That you have the complete story? Do you believe the lack of coverage by the MSM is on purpose or because there is nothing to see here?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      I have no way of knowing what you say is true. Conservatives famously accept and spread conspiracy ‘theories’.

      Do the wealthy spend money on pipe dreams? Yes. In tornado alley many folks have basements or storm cellars, so even the middle class try to mitigate risks.

      Is humanity at risk for pandemics? Of course. And no, governments, even one as ‘transparent’ as the tRump admin, don’t share everything.

    Chump and pups,
    You do realize that Jeff is in a panic because he thinks that the government is going to rein in health dollars.

    Remember, this clown gets his money from these services. Jeff paid his way through college, actually pharmacy school, big difference, with money from grants funded by our tax dollars. Then his corporation gets money from grants out of our taxes.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      david dookie you’re a smelly old lying sack of shit. If you could read you’d notice I advocate reining in medical dollars, including for pharmaceuticals. I did not attend pharmacy school.
