    "The most effective way would be to close down all wildlife markets, ban factory farming and halt deforestation" are good ideas, let's do that. What's the hold up? "Stopping eating meat altogether and shutting down all state fairs" is going too far. It's definitely the first 3 that will reduce the risk of pandemics 99%.

    Tuberculosis is a global pandemic such as the world has never seen. It has been for decades. Just last year 10 million cases were reported and 1.5 million died from it. ONE AND A HALF MILLION! That’s how many people die from it each year! EACH YEAR! It is the “most contagious disease in the history of mankind.” . It is spread from infected people talking, singing, laughing, sneezing, coughing or spitting. It is the most contagious pandemic in world history and has killed tens of million of people worldwide and is going on stronger than ever. . So, why were/are there no tuberculosis pandemic response demands from the WHO, CDC, governments, doctors, or the UN to wear masks, washing your hands? Where are the food shortages, toilet paper shortages, disinfectant shortages due to the tuberculosis pandemic? Where are the job losses, the shut downs, the layoffs because of tuberculosis pandemic? The quarantines, the social distancing because of tuberculosis? Tuberculosis has ALWAYS made flu-viruses like Covid-19 look like the sniffles. So what’s the big to do about Covid-19? New statistics are proving that even the elderly are not as high a risk as previously touted. . There are no knee-jerk reactions to the tuberculosis pandemic as with Covid -19 because masks and all of the above CANNOT STOP IT! In fact, herd mentality history indicates that those ‘preventative measures’ make it much worse. . Covid-19 is real but the toxicity is immensely exaggerated and the mortality rates are purposefully inflated for the sake of monetary greed within the medical profession and for the benefit of liberal politicians and their power grab. . For once, just once, people need to do their own research. There's an elephant in the room and it's called 'tuberculosis', and it’s exposing the lies about Covid.

    Lesson: Leave other species alone. Easy peasy, but the majority of humans are stupid just can't seem to do it. Eat plants, stick to dogs and cats for companions, and leave the forests alone. It's not that hard, millions of people do it. Stop whining and making excuses and do it.

    Because Humans are lazy stupid fucs, the next pandemic will occur of course. BUT, a great way to FIX the world's problems is to FIX the Humans. How? Simple arithmetic!!! This planet can only safely handle 2 billion Humans!! Any more, this Earth Ship will eventually will kill them off, it doesn't care!! The Earth will survive, the Humans with fuc themselves to death!!

    Another dig at Depp? You following corporate orders are you?

  • CountryLuver001

    And this is why we shouldn't be allowing any debate or questions in the task of saving our planet. Put the laws in place and NEVER allow people to abolish them. Earth does not care about you, your family, your fame, your money, your wants or dreams. You are nothing in the grand scheme of things and so your opinion on saving the ONLY home we have is not worth much. But of course, those with money don't care and know they won't be alive long enough to face the consequences of their greed.

      @punkinhoot All of that is BS and I'm just gonna suggest you do some research if you wanna present a good faith argument. But, to indulge you a little bit, I'd like to ask where those "essential" fatty acids come from because last time I checked, salmon don't have the enzyme in their metabolism to desaturate fatty acids at the ω terminal position. Last time I checked, broccoli does. So does the algae that the salmon eat. So I'm gonna skip out on the antibiotics they douse wild salmon with since, as you can guess, the regulations aren't there for the consumers.

    • punkinhoot

      Vegan diets can be very low in those "essential fatty acids," found in eggs and fish. And a lot of "foods" labelled "vegan" are pretty disgusting/disturbing if you read the ingredients. Is like expecting words like "environmentally friendly," or "organic" to mean something either. If you prefer hydroponically grown vegetables, and expect they are free of chemicals and as nutritious as garden grown, you can do that. Just hope the water, either growth method, is free of giardia, I guess.

    As of today 2.56 million people died worldwide from Covid. World population 7.674 billion. Deaths work out to .0003335% of total population. World wide deaths in 2019 as reported by WHO was 1.5 million for respiratory problems. This is an average per year. Why did we shut down the world for an extra million people ( who are probably part of the Covid deaths.

    • Don Corleone
      Don Corleone

      @StormCrown okay. In a 2017 study approx 650,000 worldwide deaths due to the flu, pre covid. In 2019 1.5 million died from both upper and lower respiratory pre-covid. If you add those that died from the flu use the 2017 number) and those from respiratory together we have approx 2.1 million world wide deaths. Why does this number not alarm you as much as you are alarmed by the Covid deaths. The world did not shut down.

    • StormCrown

      Because if we had not, the numbers would be worse. How do you not realise this?

    Don't think for a moment that the D's will do anything for us. 911, 2008, & Covid all made the rich richer and the poor more powerless. disaster capitalism is a key weapon against us in the class war. Biden, Trump, the only difference is that Biden will accomplish more atrocities because the "left" is going back to brunch. Oh, look! we bombed Syria. Don't ever forget that Clinton passed Regan's NAFTA, the crime bill, and repealed glass-steagall. Obama bailed out the banks while enabling them to foreclose on homes, and Harris refused to prosecute mnuchin for his criminal banking practices in the recession.
