Off the beaten path, but important nonetheless

For the last couple year, this blog has focused on confronting climate alarmism with actual science and facts. However, here is an Open Letter from Medical Doctors and Health Professionals to All Belgian Authorities and All Belgian Media.

In a nutshell, time to end the faux covid panic mongering and get back to normal — immediately.

The most interesting recommendation is to get rid of masks. “Oral masks in healthy individuals are ineffective against the spread of viral infections.” In addition, the accumulated CO2 leads to a toxic acidification of the organism which affects our immunity. Basically, the air environment in a mask fails to meet the labor code for safe air.

UPDATE

Oh, and the CDC says masks are ineffective.

Oh, and the WHO says stop using lockdowns.

Man, its hard to keep up.

Solar panels : The Toxic Avenger

Whoda thunk it. Solar Panels Produce Tons of Toxic Waste—Literally.

According to cancer biologist David H. Nguyen, PhD, toxic chemicals in solar panels include cadmium telluride, copper indium selenide, cadmium gallium (di)selenide, copper indium gallium (di)selenide, hexafluoroethane, lead, and polyvinyl fluoride. Silicon tetrachloride, a byproduct of producing crystalline silicon, is also highly toxic.

It is no wonder that Chinese factories, when confronted with the exorbitant costs (both financial and environmental) of decomposing solar panel chemicals properly, prefer to release them into the environment rather than dispose of them in an environmentally safe manner.

Stanford Magazine also points out that solar energy has a higher carbon footprint than wind and nuclear energy. Ray Weiss, a professor of Geochemistry at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, explains that a number of solar panels release nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), a chemical compound 17,000 times worse for the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. As recently as 2015, he explained that many manufacturers were still struggling to figure out how to contain its release into the atmosphere.

Green energy? I think not.

Smoke Smoke Everywhere

By now, pretty much everyone has experienced smoke from the wildfires ravaging the three western US states, California, Oregon and Washington. No, this is not due to climate change. Its forestry mismanagement. The fuel load on the ground has been accumulating for decades, drying out, and waiting to catch fire.

Here is an excellent backgrounder on the issue by David Stockman.

Researchers believe that in prehistoric California, between 4.4 million and 11.8 million acres burned naturally each year. Between 1982 and 1998, state land managers burned about 30,000 acres per year. And between 1999 and 2017, the number dropped to 13,000 acres annually. It is estimated that California needs to burn 20 million acres to stabilize the system.

This was a fire crisis waiting to happen. Don’t believe the lying politicians that are attempting to evade their own culpability in this. No, earth is not pissed off and exacting revenge on humans. This is stupid humans reaping the consequences of their own incompetence.

And who’d a thunk that climate change stopped at the Canada – US border. Canada Wildfires at Lowest Level for Years. It seems that climate change has only infected forests in California. Not Canada. Not the Southeastern US. Not Europe. Funny that.
