Who’s Up For Greener Hospitals Or Something?

Perhaps they should be focusing on taking care of patients, rather than ‘climate change’, since the NHS tends to turn away a lot of patients along with long waiting times. The doomsday cult simply wants to take over healthcare

Climate change: NHS staff fighting to make hospitals greener

The Welsh NHS needs to “lead by example” in the fight against climate change to avoid future health problems, say hospital staff trying to cut carbon emissions.

At Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor, staff are volunteering after shifts during Covid-19 to work on green schemes.

Doctors said major overhauls were needed to ensure the health service stops adding to global warming.

NHS Wales boss Dr Andrew Goodall said progress was being made.

The outgoing chief executive added that while the health service was under huge pressure, it must focus on climate change alongside the Covid crisis.

The NHS accounts for about 2.6% of Wales’ emissions of planet-warming gases – a carbon footprint of approximately one million tonnes of CO2 equivalent a year.

They have a Big Commitment, you know. And what are they doing?

The team has planted trees and wildflowers, switched to less polluting anaesthetic gases, and initiated trials of reusable personal protective equipment (PPE). (snip)

There are plans to plant 100 trees, with the idea that some of the hospital’s mental health patients could help with the upkeep as part of their treatment.

So, virtually nothing except climavirtue signalling.

The group has also published cycle-to-work guides for staff to cut down on car fumes and successfully lobbied for new shower facilities.

Not mentioned is whether any in this group are cycling to work themselves, as they try to climashame other employees to do so.

“Just as the health workforce are on the front lines of the pandemic, they’ll likewise be on the front lines of the climate emergency and the health impacts that we see from that,” he said.

Climate Change Impact: 40% Chance of ‘100-Year Storms’ Over 20-Year Span

While events like Hurricane Ida and a Texas winter freeze demonstrate wide-reaching impacts of climate change to all but ardent deniers, even insurers and reinsurers may not fully appreciate all the risks, a new report suggests.

Among the underappreciated facts about climate change: Along some parts of the U.S. Eastern seaboard, events that used to be thought of as 1-in-100-year hurricanes will have a 40-plus percent chance of occurring sometime between 2031 and 2050, according to the report, “The Journey To Net Zero: An Insurer’s Guide to Navigating Climate Risks and Opportunities.”

Yes, they are blaming ‘climate change’ for winter storms. What are the penalties for if, really, when, they are wrong? Anything? Or, is this just a matter of Scaring people to get them to comply?

    This is an typical logical fallacy that William Teach uses daily. Those who understand the seriousness of global warming can NEVER do enough to satisfy William Teach!

    As opposed to those who claim the seriousness of global warming but can never offer up evidence of the “seriousness”? Other than this or that “could” happen..

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      One can always choose to ignore or disbelieve the evidence of the seriousness.

      Balancing risk vs cost is always difficult. We vaccinated children against polio by force, but it wiped out polio. Was eliminating the risk worth the loss of freedom and autonomy? Based of what “could” happen to people contracting polio the decision was made that the risk was high even though the cost was high.

      The scientific consensus is that the Earth is warming as a result of greenhouse gas accumulation and that there is little scientific reason to expect the warming to stop unless we reduce/stop greenhouse gas emissions. You view the risk as remote and the cost too high.

      You denied the Earth was even warming until recently. Do you now accept that it is warming?

        “One can always choose to ignore or disbelieve the evidence of the seriousness.”

        Of course they can you do it constantly. You refuse to open your eyes to the truth regards how much evidence is provided to you. You did it with global warming, with the Communist flu, with the election steal with the two different levels of justice you always seem to back. Hypocrisy is how you disbelieve.

        “We vaccinated children against polio by force, but it wiped out polio.”

        Yes, we we would do it again if a disease as deadly as Polio reared it’s ugly head, but for the flu NO. Especially not with an unproven medicine. And don’t call it a “vaccine” because it isn’t.

        “The scientific consensus is that …. ” if they stop saying the earth is warming they will be off the gravy train. They make their money by doing what that crumb Fauxci has been doing for two years: Lying and changing the rules every other week. We can see with our own eyes how AFRAID these so-called scientists and experts of yours absolutely refuse to allow opposing views on media, social media, or to be taught in schools because their bullshit can’t stand the light of day. So pointing out scientific “consensus” is worthless.

        “You denied the Earth was even warming until recently. Do you now accept that it is warming?”

        Show us where anyone here stated the earth wasn’t warming as a scientific fact! Anyone including Teach. We always acknowledge the warming and cooling of the earth It’s natural! You always lie to make your fake point. All we’ve ever claimed is that IF the earth is warming there has been no substantial evidence that it’s caused by man to any great degree. And what little evidence that has been brought to light does not warrant the vast reordering of worldwide humanity into massive kibbutz’s. We are not going to conquer climate by reverting to failed socialist, fascist and communist policies and plans that destroyed so many countries and killed so many millions in the last century. If Russia can’t feed itself how’s it gonna feed Romania? If you destroy our energy and farming capabilities how do we survive. Or is our demise the entire idea?

        While facts may be immutable, others have different perspectives, different takes on the same set of facts. If you and the Dear Leader can’t understand that basic pillar of America you don’t deserve to be here.

        By “force”? As if the polio and Covid immunization efforts are comparable.
        Far from it.
        Again being the dipshit he is, Rimjob makes up another misleading comment.

    “One can choose to ignore or disbelieve the evidence of the seriousness..”. So, you still can’t offer up evidence of the seriousness, I see..
    “The scientific consensus is that..”. Consensus is largely irrelevant in science. Remember Einstein’s quote about consensus?
    After one of his theories was published, about 100 scientists published a book “100 against Einstein” (paraphrasing). His remark? “Why 100 -if I was wrong it would only take one” .
    “You view the risk as remote and the cost too high”. J-love how you start your statements with false premises. Again, what risk? Before you can accuse someone of “viewing the risk as remote”, you’d have to prove the risk
