Energy companies to Biden: Poor policy decisions are responsible for spike in energy costs

The energy industry is pushing back after President Joe Biden suggested that the skyrocketing cost of gasoline and other energy sources could be foul play by producers.

I bought a half-kilowatt of solar energy for $9 in under 10 minutes

Solar panels are out of financial reach for a lot of people. Solar energy, however, is more accessible.

Environment

Deforestation in Brazil’s Amazon at highest level since 2006

Deforestation in Brazil‘s Amazon rainforest soared 22% in the past year to the highest level since 2006, the government’s annual report has shown, undercutting president Jair Bolsonaro’s assurances that the country is curbing illegal logging.

Shopping online surged during Covid. Now the environmental costs are becoming clearer.

As millions of Americans hunkered at home during Covid lockdowns, the internet became more than a way to do their jobs or pass the time — it became a central way they shopped for goods like groceries, hot meals, furniture and clothing.

Austria announces Europe’s first nationwide vaccine mandate and reimposes lockdown as Covid-19 soars

Austria is going back into a national lockdown and plans to become the first country in Europe to make Covid-19 vaccinations mandatory for all eligible people as the nation’s coronavirus crisis deepens, Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced Friday.

A heavily unvaccinated Africa has so far avoided a COVID disaster. Health officials are optimistic and wary.

Fewer than 6% of people in Africa are vaccinated. For months, the WHO has described Africa as “one of the least affected regions in the world” in its weekly pandemic reports. Yet it’s COVID rates outperform the US and Europe’s by a wide margin.

    The African correlation.

    So lessee. African don't get the jab and they aren't dying.

    Other countries are getting the jab and are dying.

    Is there something subtle here that I am missing? Got it!

    It's global warming.

    Trial Site News Interview with Aussie Doc - watch it while you still can!

    Full interview

    Short version of this interview mentioned that even police are scared/worried, and doctors aren't even allowed to give their opinion on which vaccine is better.  Full version goes through how a protein based vaccine is being developed by Dr Nikolai and his team.

    Replying to Trial Site News Interview with Aussie Doc

    Interesting that at the 29'30 mark he says that data clearly shows that people with natural immunity have 20 times (!) the protection of people who have had the mRNA or adenovirus vaccines.

    Trial Site News Interview with Aussie Doc - watch it while you still can!

    A few interesting notes from that interview. The interview was of a vaccine developer who developed a non-mRNA vaccine. He noted:

    1) Studies on mRNA vaccines have found spike proteins circulating the the blood as much as four months after the injection.

    2) In the mRNA vaccines, the actual mRNA has been "stabilized" in order to prevent the mRNA from breaking down. This is a bit of a shocker since, up until now, the story line on mRNA vaccines has been that there is no danger from mRNA in vaccines since mRNA quickly breaks down in the body. This is the fist time I have heard that the mRNA in the vaccines was engineered to not breakdown as quickly as normal mRNA.

    3) The law in Australia provides that doctors there will lose their licenses for prescribing Ivermectin or for even recommending one vaccine over another.

    4) People in Australia can be arrested for speaking out against government action.

    5) Even doctors, judges, police officers and others in Australia are just as astonished at what is happening in Australia as the people on this site are astonished at what is happening in their respective countries.

    This particular vaccine developer (again, not an mRNA vaccine) interviewed in this podcast struck me as so honest that I bookmarked his site so that if his vaccine is approved in the US, I might actually get it.

    Austria's police and military refuse to enforce unvaxxed lockdown

    Apparently, both the police and the military unions in Austria declared they will not enforce the draconian lockdown of unvaccinated citizens, but on Saturday, Nov. 20th, joined a massive Vienna demonstration against medical apartheid.

    So far, I've only found this news on alternative sites and on Twitter.

    Apparent original (French) report of Nov. 16.

    And here is a Twitter post purporting to be from yesterday, apparently showing police arriving to participate in the protest.

    I hope this is true but I suspect not. If so, I guess they would bring in thugs from the outside?

    Re: Real Reason

    Population reduction and control.

    “Our group has been using the PLUS Cardiac Test (GD Biosciences, Inc, Irvine, CA) a clinically validated measurement of multiple protein biomarkers which generates a score predicting the 5 yr risk (percentage chance) of a new Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).”

    “Recently, with the advent of the mRNA COVID 19 vaccines (vac) by Moderna and Pfizer, dramatic changes in the PULS score became apparent in most patients. This report summarizes those results.”

    “We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.”

    While vaccine certificates are rolled out NZ Ministry of Health says the vaccinated are more of a risk.

    Vaccine certificates and a 'traffic light system' are to be implemented from December 3rd in New Zealand with a breakdown of what the unvaccinated can and can't do.  Meanwhile the NZ Ministry of health releases an advisory for health professionals stating "When there is high COVID-19 vaccine coverage (i.e., above 80 percent of eligible people are fully vaccinated), transmission is more likely to occur from a vaccinated than an unvaccinated individual."

    So when does the public policy match the NZ Ministry of Health science?
