PLANET ON FIRE

August 29, 2021

A picture of the Climate Calamity talks more than words can express. Look carefully at the scale:

This is a picture of the Caldor Fire, east of Sacramento and thirty kilometers (in that particular picture), west of Lake Tahoe. The date is 28th August, 2021. The fire has burned for 12 days, it’s spread over 100 kilometers or so. Those columns of fire are a kilometer high. Look carefully at the scale, by blowing up the picture: the flames originate beyond the horizon; at the horizon one can see a forest of centennial trees, 200 feet high, taller than trees get in Europe. As you look at the picture, these ancient trees are forever gone. At best, they will be replaced by bushes.

All forests in many alpine, arctic, tropical and soon ex-temperate zones are also going to go up in flames too.

Why, how did we get to this point?

Lack of knowledge, lack of wisdom, lack of courage, lack of sincerity… And the contradiction in adjecto regime of “representative democracy”. “Representative democracy” is neither representative, nor democracy.

This “representative democracy” has blocked intelligent debate, enabling corrupt “experts”, paid to tell lies, to dominate the debate, not just with fake data, fake logic, fake news, but also fake emotions. For example insisting, 50 years ago, that nuclear energy for power production was an immense danger, always would be, and all progressives and ecologists should oppose it. Above is the result.

Yes, all California forest will burn.

That’s just the start. Kilometer high flames…

Masks Don’t Work As Well As Rotting Toad

August 29, 2021

Best way to avoid bad COVID (besides vaccinations and clean air)? Wear, not a mask, but a crushed rotting toad on your head: nobody will come close, you be safe. The voodoo mask people, who call toilet paper on their face, “science”, will be repelled. I am glad to repel those who confuse voodoo with science.

An INCONCLUSIVE review article on masks was published by CDC, in September 2020, 4 months before the OUTLAWING of most mask types in Europe. Uncritical masks partisans naively brandish it… but they did not read it… Because if they had, they would not talk about it as if it were a reference… https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7293495/?fbclid=IwAR2D6cbIj7Mq_GdzxJpAYCEk32l30ylSh2Auxm1gVVsIdPMhymEzetw7N6E

Here is its (inconclusive) conclusion of the CDC in said article. (In the meantime numerous studies have shown masks and grandly named N95 respirators, to be mostly INEFFECTIVE… While CLEAN AIR from HEPA filters and ventilation did reduce viral loads… Even the new York Times did its own study concluding HEPA and ventilation worked.)

“7. Conclusion

Researchers have speculated that both droplets and aerosols generated from non-violent and violent expirations of SARS-CoV-2-infected people may be responsible for the airborne transmission of COVID-19 disease. However, more research work should be conducted to understand the behavior of virus-laden droplets and aerosols in different environmental settings, especially confined spaces so that the transmission of COVID-19 pandemic in the built environment could be fully ascertained. The case studies found worldwide indicate that the behavior of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been unprecedentedly unique with more survival and viable rates in the air and believed to linger in the air for an extended period. The challenge before many healthcare workers in combatting the disease would be a daunting task unless proper administrative, clinical, and physical measures are taken within the healthcare settings. Inter-disciplinary research on the behavior of the SARS-CoV-2 virus needs to be conducted to prevent COVID-19 disease from spreading worldwide.”

Oh, by the way not one serious scientific paper shows that “masks” are effective with children and COVID. As usual the overriding reasoning is the same: COVID is like smoke… Same size, one hundred nanometers. Masks’ efficiency is computed in micron, not nanometer. It takes one thousand nanometers to make one micron. Actually surgical masks are made of plastic, polypropylene, typically, and are made to intercept the spherical cells of Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria, which are one (1) μm in diameter: one micron, ten times the size of the SARS CoV2 virus.

A MD objected: “Masks aren’t torture. Not everything we do generates aerosols.

Well, for the sadomasochists, torture is pleasure. I had a friend Larry Stark, a MD, PhD, and endowed with many other prestigious positions (professor of neurology, optometry and electric engineering at UC Berkeley and UCSF). He was very defiant of Medical Doctors, saying, basically, that they did not know how to think, as they confused cooking recipes, statistics and genuine mental creativity.

So some doctors told me masks could not possibly hurt, so we may as well use them. However, there are severe medical consequences to masks. One can break limbs because one could not see a defect of the ground (I know personally one case). There are allergies, especially for children. After I run, I absolutely cannot wear mask for quite a while, I suffocate. Masks introduce fibers in the lungs, etc.

Because of intense smoke in the burning Sierra Nevada, I use so called N95 “respirators” twice (they kept some of the AQI 400 smoke out). But had to remove them promptly because I nearly broke limbs within 100 feet (I run cross country, bad mountain trails).

The BS about masks has incited authorities to forsake what works: clean air. CLEAN AIR, like clean water, will one day be the norm. It is technically feasible (HEPA).

Where I am located, mask obsessed PUBLIC schools did NOT invest in clean air: they had decided that masks were the panacea, all they needed, and those who did not wear them, “spread the disease”… Let all children wear masks, and COVID will go away. That was science, according to those public schools…

Well, in Marin County, one (non-vaccinated) teacher with COVID infected 26 MASKED children (the closer to the teacher, the more infected). That’s just one example. The incompetent, rotten governor had only talked and given orders about masks, although HEPA filters are very cheap, and he has a budget surplus of 100 billion dollars… Enough to cover all of California with HEPA filters…

Finally, the San Francisco school board just decided to invest in CLEAN AIR. Too little, too late. Classes are getting full of COVID, even in my daughter public school. Conclusion: COVID, and masked children are forced to go back home.

So it is back to the real truth: in California authorities do not mind if public school close and private schools stay open. Last year the corrupt governor had his four children going to in-person private school (Newsom made two million dollars from his eleven Getty companies) . Meanwhile, “Black Lives Matter” people had children not going to school….

Long live the masquerade…

CDC Early Release / August 27, 2021 / 70

Tracy Lam-Hine, MBA1,2; Stephen A. McCurdy, MD1,3; Lisa Santora, MD1; Lael Duncan, MD1; Russell Corbett-Detig, PhD4; Beatrix Kapusinszky, PhD5; Matthew Willis, MD1 (View author affiliations)View suggested citation

Summary What is already known about this topic?

The SARS-CoV-2 B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant is highly transmissible. Prevention guidance in schools varies by jurisdiction.

What is added by this report?

During May 23–June 12, 2021, 26 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases occurred among Marin County, California, elementary school students and their contacts following exposure to an unvaccinated infected teacher. The attack rate in one affected classroom was 50%; risk correlated with seating proximity to the teacher.

[The CDC deduced from that that masking should be “included”… But once again CDC failed to mention HEPA filters and ventilation…]
