Wuhan Virus Gives Us A Dose Of Reality About ‘Climate Change’

Green Biz’s Joel Makower attempts to make a point about this, but, unintentionally makes a different point

COVID-19 and climate change: A healthy dose of reality

It’s too early to tell whether COVID-19 is linked in any way to the climate crisis. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t; we’ll likely never know for certain. Still, consider the global health crisis currently upon us as a warm-up act for a climate-changing world.

In the immortal words of the ‘70s rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”

For nearly two decades, health officials around the world have warned about the rise of infectious disease from a warming climate. The Pentagon, for example, started raising concern back in 2003 in an independent study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Defense. It warned that “As famine, disease and weather-related disasters strike due to the abrupt climate change, many countries’ needs will exceed their carrying capacity.”

See, we don’t know if Wuhan has any link at all to ‘climate change’, and most likely has none, because it seemed to have everything to do with there always having been viruses and people in filthy open air markets cooking bat or pangolin (or, yes, possibly it getting out from a biological center right down the street from the market)

Clearly, this is not a “someday” situation. According to Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization since 2017, “As man-made climate change has taken hold over the last four decades, dozens of new infectious diseases have emerged or begun to threaten new regions, including Zika and Ebola.” Moreover, he writes, “Bubonic plague, spread by rats and fleas, is predicted to increase with warmer springs and wetter summers. Anthrax, whose spores are released by thawing permafrost, could spread farther as a result of stronger winds.”

Bubonic plague. Anthrax. Suddenly, coronavirus feels rather tame.

Ebola, like other Hemorrhagic diseases, predates the current warm period, as does Anthrax and the Bubonic plague. In fact, the massive bubonic plague that killed anywhere from 75 million to 200 million occurred during a Holocene cool period back in the 1300’s. (see the big graphic below the fold)

He is correct, though, that this is a warm-up act for a Hotcoldwetdry government policy world, where people are not working, where travel is restricted, people are stuck at home, where food and goods are in short supply, where jobs are not available, and government is telling you what to do, where you can and can’t go, and how to live your life.

      IOW It’s going away.

      All Jeffery has is FUD.

      And lies.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Reading the WUWT article and struck by:

      The ‘drug’ is just an analog of the amino acid adenosine, one of the 20 amino acid (only, in all life on Earth, proving a common genetic ancestor) building blocks the viral polymerase uses to ‘assemble’ new copies of the viral RNA genetic code.

      Would you trust anything in this article after reading that?

      • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        Funny you of all people talking about trust.

          Well, Rodney, we’ve learned to not trust anything you cite.

          Pups,
          He doesn’t understand it. I keep telling you he has a remedial education.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            I know the difference between an amino acid and a nucleoside, which is more than the author of that piece knows.

      • formwiz says:

        OK, tell us what’s wrong with it. Just saying, “That’s wrong”, doesn’t mean anything.

        Especially coming from you.

    • formwiz says:

      Gateway had that yesterday. So Jeffery can suck on his pudendum.

      The issue is becoming how do the people react to the overkill of many governors’ response. Especially since some (Newsom, Inslee) helped create the mess.

      Since there’s an election this Fall, I have a feeling (backed up by some commentaries) this will blow up in the Demos’ faces. They and their spear carriers in Fake News having created this panic, once people see how unnecessary it all was, there is going to be a lot of lessons learned and plenty of blowback for a lot of the Left’s cherished concepts and policies. With many of said Demo governors getting very dictatorial, how many will remember in November becomes an interesting problem.

      Especially if Trump comes out of this the hero I think he will.

  2. formwiz says:

    I thought I did.

    Your say-so alone means nothing.

    Stick your LOL with all your other LOLs.

  3. formwiz says:

    I know the difference between an amino acid and a nucleoside, which is more than the author of that piece knows.

    OK, what is the difference?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      I’m surprised you don’t know that they are nothing alike. Not even close. Amino acids have amine (-NH2) and carboxyl (-COOH) groups and are form proteins. Although are thousands of amino acids only 21 are found in proteins.

      Nucleosides are nucleic bases (adenine, guanine, thymidine, cytosine, uracil (RNA only)) with a ribose sugar attached. Nucleosides are converted to nucleotides (e.g., ATP) which are used to form DNA and RNA strands.

      Anyone calling adenosine an amino acid is not to be believed regarding biochemistry.

      david can explain it to you too.

  4. formwiz says:

    Then I’m sure you can explain

    3.1.1IUPAC Name
    (2R,3R,4S,5R)-2-(6-aminopurin-9-yl)-5-(hydroxymethyl)oxolane-3,4-diol

    Which is off an NIH site, U.S. National Library of Medicine.

    The comments caught him in his error and he wrote

    Correction and apology. Above comments are correct. Adenosine is the A nuceloside in the ACTG ‘alphabet’ for RNA and DNA. My bad.; a real inexcusable brain cramp.
    The 20 amino acids are what build all proteins.

    So he’s smarter than you want to believe.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Good for him for making a correction. So many conservatives refuse to admit mistakes.

      And yes, I could explain the IUPAC name. Do you have a point or just wanting to show off your Googleness?

      • formwiz says:

        No, I always check anything you say since you lie so much.

      • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

        Good for him for making a correction.
        Something the little sissybitch never does. Now he can continue to read the rest of the article and try to refute it.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Why don’t YOU read it and summarize it for us? That would make your argument more compelling.

            He’s not an expert.

            How much you are I’ll wait to see.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            He’s not an expert.

            Neither is the author of the WUWT article. Having read the article, it’s by and large anodyne.

            Summary:Chloroquine and remdesivir may or may not be effective against Covid-19.

        • formwiz says:

          If he corrected every lie, he’d never have time to research more lies.

      • formwiz says:

        Funny, he didn’t reveal his politics.

        As always, you assume and when you assume you make an ass of u in front of me.

        “So many conservatives refuse to admit mistakes.”

        Really?

        Are unborn babies human and if so do they not have a right to life?

        Is it currently possible for a man to “become” a woman or vice versa?

        Name the other sexes other than male and female.

        How many global warming predictions have proven true since Earth Day 1970?

        How many races are there and are they all endowed with the same abilities?

        Where did the Red China Virus come from?

        Would you rather America go into depression or have Trump reelected?

        Leftists know so many things that just aren’t true because all they have is hate.

        Trump 2020 Now more than ever!
