We Can’t Ignore The Risks From Hotcoldwetdry And Coronavirus Or Something

Hey, should we be calling it Wuhan virus, or would that be raaaaacist? Regardless, the doomsday Cult of Climastrology continues to jam its cultish beliefs into everything. This is from Axios, hence the formatting

Coronavirus and climate change are obvious risks we ignore

Forget black swans. We’re getting run over by two gray rhinos: coronavirus and climate change.

The intrigue: A gray rhino is a metaphor coined by risk expert Michele Wucker to describe “highly obvious, highly probable, but still neglected” dangers, as opposed to unforeseeable or highly improbable risks — the kind in the black swan metaphor.

The big picture: The novel coronavirus spreading infections and fear around the world is prompting black swan references from the media and investors alike, as is climate change’s impact on financial markets.

  • But epidemics like the coronavirus and the slower burn problem of global warming are actually gray rhino risks, because there have been plenty of warnings for those who were paying attention.

Why it matters: Understanding what kind of risk you are facing — as an individual, country, company or world — is essential to make sure you’re prepared before, during and after a moment of crisis. Mistaking a gray rhino for a black swan suggests you’ll be ill prepared.

CO2 is not a danger. A slight uptick in the global temperature is not a danger. These cultists just can’t help linking the two issues together

Where it stands: For most people on the street — or a cruise ship — it’s probably OK if they haven’t been paying attention until now to a potential epidemic.

  • But governments, companies and experts around the world should have seen it coming because epidemics are not new and are likely to become more common, Bill Gates says. Other experts agree, per the WSJ.
  • In the same vein, it’s OK if individuals aren’t losing sleep trying to cut their own carbon footprint — but governments, financial institutions and companies should be taking action, both to adapt to an inevitably warmer world and to reduce heat-trapping emissions.

See, it’s OK if individuals don’t do anything to make their own life compliant, but, governments and such should. Which means the cost of living goes up and government controls more of people’s lives.

  • Coronavirus is a more immediate threat, and the amount of uncertainty surrounding it feels limitless. We don’t know how many people in any given area are infected, and because we don’t know that, questions persist about the accurate mortality rate.
  • Climate change is one massive systematic risk that will unfold over decades and centuries. It increases the risk for an infinite number of distinct weather events and patterns.

The former is real, the latter is not. But, the CoC won’t quit on linking the two. Because cult.

    Your Dear Leader days it is only a few people sneezing
    And people should still go to work
    Worldwide 25% of those over 80 die from Corona
    12% die who get it in their 70s
    Well at least this should lower the Social Security outflow that should make some happy

    • formwiz says:

      ICYMI 25% is the average for > 80.

      And I believe the God Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne says it is only a few people sneezing.

      AA Is just around the corner.

    For those who can read and think…
    (Sorry little Johnny.)

      Different sources give different figs. BBC says .1% and I’ve seen it other places.

      Yours could be right, but this is not the Black Death.

      Just another hyped-up flu.

      Rodney Langford/Fuller,

      You’re stealing Lil Puppy’s schtick…

    Show your work.

    Mortality is .1%. And older people die in greater numbers. 25% is the > 70 figure.


    • David D says:

      The death rate might be less that .1 percent perhaps .0000000001 and only a few thousand die.

      Tell all of that to the dow jones which is plummeting like a lead balloon or the people beating each other up over rolls of toilet paper. Or the schools and colleges shutting down.

      or Russia and Saudia Arabia in an oil fight because they have only one way to pay the bills. OIL.

      Tell that to the NBA who said they might have to play games with no one watching.

      Or tell that to the people who are dying. Not much comfort for anyone since this virus damages your lungs even if you get the mild version.

      There are two strains now. The L Strain which is very deadly and the S strain which is mild but very infectious because it is the one that spreads with on symptoms.

      The real problem is not the virus….its the panic.

      • formwiz says:

        It could also be because the Democrat party’s designated nominee’s brain has very publicly been shown to have turned to Jell-O over the past week.

        Tell all of that to the dow jones which is plummeting like a lead balloon

        The oil price war just could be the real cause. And it would be interesting to see who’s shorting the futures markets. Anybody seen Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy lately?

        And I submit that it’s not the whole country. Supposedly, the local Targets in Silicon Valley are out of everything. Sounds like most of the people panicking are the Lefties (Tell that to the NBA who said they might have to play games with no one watching.). They’re the only ones dumb enough to believe Fake News.

        Or tell that to the people who are dying. Not much comfort for anyone since this virus damages your lungs even if you get the mild version.

        The flu is the flu. Get a grip. Any flu damages your lungs.

        I got a case of bronchitis about 20 years ago and I still cough from it.
