How inflation, climate change and energy costs are pushing up food prices

In the US, inflation is now above six percent, and globally, food prices are at their highest since 2011. Climate change, energy demands and inflation are causing shortages and driving up costs in some of the poorest nations. Wall Street Journal reporter Samantha Pearson joins Hari Sreenivasan from Sao Paulo, Brazil, to discuss the crisis.

Green Upheaval: The New Geopolitics of Energy

It is not hard to understand why people dream of a future defined by clean energy. As greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow and as extreme weather events become more frequent and harmful, the current efforts to move beyond fossil fuels appear woefully inadequate.

More And More Americans Are Smoking Pot. What Does That Mean For Their Health?

Epidemiologists are still alarmed at just how many Americans are smoking pot, but they admit that pot isn’t the health menace we were once told it was — and there’s some evidence that a little bit of pot could be a good thing for adults.

New antiviral drugs are coming for COVID. Here’s what you need to know

If authorized by the FDA, the new antiviral pill, molnupiravir — made by the drug companies Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics — would be the first oral home treatment available for mild to moderate COVID-19.

    Unbiased Science Podcast

    So they have the following to ease the vaccination fear (misinformation per them). Has anyone come across this and what are your thoughts? Please do share, thanks.

     

    POP quiz time! You all loved the last quiz, so we decided to do it again-- this time, you are being asked to match each cause of death on the right (ie., car accident, heart disease, mRNA vaccines, and COVID-19 illness) with risk of death on the right.

     

    [Note: These data are specific to the U.S. population and were collected from the CDC's National Vital Statistics System (NVSS). Both car accident and heart disease data are from 2019, as the CDC has not released the fatal injury

     

    report from 2020.] Ok, did you lock in your guesses? When you're ready, swipe for the answer key! How'd you do? Let's discuss.

     

    Heart disease, by far, is the deadliest of the items on this list. On the flip side, mRNA vaccines are, by far, the safest. You are MUCH more likely to die from heart disease, in a car accident, or from COVID-19 illness than from mRNA vaccines.

     

    It is also important to note that the true number of deaths due to COVID is thought to be at least double what is reported, so the risk of death is almost definitely being underestimated. What about VAERS? Well, by now, we all know how VAERS works (reminder: it is a voluntary reporting system with unverified reports that can NOT be used to determine a causal relationship with vaccines). However, in a hypothetical alternate universe where all the deaths reported to VAERS post-vaccination were verified and confirmed to be caused by the vaccine the risk of death would still be just 0.0022% - still lower than all the other risks mentioned in this post!

     

    Fear is natural. Fear of the new, fear of the unexpected, fear of dying. Many claim that the vaccine is causing more deaths than COVID-19 itself, or that the vaccine will cause more deaths than commonly reported causes of death-- but the data clearly show that is a false claim.

    Unbiased genocide.

    Talk to the cognoscenti. I'm too stupid to do real mathematics.

    Lets do real science.

    • What do you make of the fact that Sirius does not precess with the rest of the stars in the precession of the equinoxes.?
    • Why are sunspots dark?
    • Why does the solar wind accelerate? (How does it accelerate?)
    • Why did Kirchoff find it necessary to add carbon black to in order to support his "Laws" of black body radiation?
    • Why are the results of the double slit experiment retro fitted to the observations?
    • Why are black holes accepted when the physics leads to infinities?
    • Why is red-shift due to ionised gas ignored in calculating the age of the universe and consequently the "Big Bang" conjecture?
    • Why is the natural radio emission of water vapour ignored when producing the "cosmic background radiation" that is offered up as proof of the "Big Bang"?

    Want more? I have others.

    I am not good at statistics, but I know the difference between statistics and science.

    Oh. And I was trained in the military. If I see a person drop dead in front of me, my mind wanders over to the idea that I had better move my tusch muy pronto.

    Big legal win against insane ruling

    https://www.rebelnews.com/pastor_artur_and_his_lawyer_react_to_big_legal_victory?utm_campaign=as_arturmiller_11_29_21&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel

     ...The sanctions against the Pawlowskis, which included compelled speech which forced Artur to read a message on COVID and vaccines personally drafted by Justice Germain after any public comments he may make and a travel ban, were so dramatic that we had to act.

    So we launched FireTheJudge.com to hold this supposed judge accountable for his ideological vendetta.

    Well, the Alberta Court of Appeals seems to have agreed with our take on the bizarre ruling.

    They have stayed the sanctions until a proper appeal process takes places on June 14, 2022, meaning that Pastor Artur is free to speak his mind and travel, at least for now.

    Additionally, during court proceedings, when Alberta Health Services spoke to the matter, they emphasized that they never asked for the speech mandate or a travel ban, further undermining Justice Germain’s troubling sanctions.

    Hopefully these developments are a foreshadowing of success when the final appeal does come. ...

    "If they continue with this, they are murderers."

    Let's cut through the crap.

    This isn't some hyper technological triumph by a super-villain. It's just brutal murder with razor blades.

    Dr Andreas Noack was brutally murdered 4 days after posting this video. His speciality is carbon 6 hexagons.

    Do be a pet and send this off to six others on your mailing list.
