Thousands evacuated due to fast-moving California wildfire

The Holiday Fire is one of more than three dozen major blazes burning across the US west

2048

Thousands were force to leave their homes in Santa Barbara County on Saturday as a fast-moving wildfire driven by strong winds and triple-digit temperatures destroyed 20 homes and other buildings, and officials declared a local emergency.

The Holiday Fire, one of more than three dozen major blazes burning across the US west, broke out on Friday evening near the beach community of Goleta, California, south of Santa Barbara, and raced through the seaside foothills.

The flames forced more than 2,000 people to flee their homes, and left thousands more without power, prompting the emergency declaration which frees additional funds for the firefighting effort.

About 350 firefighters took advantage of a period of light winds early on Saturday to contain as much as possible of the blaze, which has burned through 50 to 80 acres (20 to 32 hectares), fire officials said.

“It was a small fire but it had a powerful punch to it,” spokesman Mike Eliason said.

Dozens of blazes have broken out across the western US, fanned by scorching heat, winds and low humidity in a particularly intense fire season.

This year’s fires had burned more than 2.9 million acres (1.17 million hectares) through Friday, already more than the annual average of about 2.4 million acres (971,000 hectares) over the last 10 years, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.

On Friday, the remains of an unidentified person were found near a home burned to the ground by the Klamathon fire, which broke out on Thursday near California’s border with Oregon. It marked the first fatality of the fire season in California.

The Klamathon, which has destroyed 15 structures and blackened nearly 22,000 acres (8,900 hectares), was only 5% contained as of Saturday.

Elsewhere in northern California, the County Fire has charred 88,375 acres (35,764 hectares) in sparsely populated wooded areas of Napa and Yolo Counties.

About 3,660 firefighters faced with inaccessible terrain, high temperatures and low humidity, were battling the fire, which was only 48% contained. It has destroyed 10 structures, damaged two and threatened 110.

In Colorado, officials said crews had made “much progress” battling the Spring Creek fire, which broke out on 27 June and has consumed 106,985 acres (43,295 hectares). It was 43% contained on Saturday, officials said. (Click to Source)

Australia Passes Law To Fine Parents Who Don’t Vaccinate Their Children

Parents who refuse the vaccinate their children will lose money

Australia has passed a controversial new law that has reinforced it’s “no jab, no pay” policy by fining parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.Parents who refuse the vaccinate their children will now lose A$28 (£16) a fortnight from their tax benefits for each child if there are not up to date with their immunizations.The Australian government previously took an end of year payment to their family tax benefit from families who children were not up to date with their vaccinations, worth A$737.

The Independent reports: The new fortnightly sanction will see parents lose out on roughly the same amount but is said to serve as a more “constant reminder”. Those earning over A$80 a day will also have further penalties imposed.The move is part of an ongoing clampdown by the Australian government on the “anti-vaxxer” movement after the percentage of children under seven with a “conscientious objection” to immunization rose from 0.23 percent in December 1999 to 1.77 percent in December 2014, according to Australia’s parliament.

Minister for Social Services Dan Tehan said the clampdown was necessary to protect public health.“Immunisation is the safest way to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases,” he said in a statement, news.com.au reported. “Parents who don’t immunize their children are putting their own kids at risk as well as the children of other people.”

It comes as a leading medical journal in the UK found measles “remains a threat” to the British public after 643 cases were recorded up to 18 June this year, up from 274 cases in the whole of 2017.In September last year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared that measles had been eliminated in the UK. The UK also reached the WHO target for 95 per cent of five-year-olds to receive the first dose of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.But the journal found there had been several outbreaks of measles across Europe in countries where MMR uptake has been low historically, including Romania, France, Greece, and Italy, with 48 measles deaths reported in the European Union since 2016.Lead author Dr Maliha Moten, who is part of Public Health England’s West Midlands Health Protection Team, said the latest British cases are “mainly linked to importations from Europe”.Uptake of the MMR vaccine fell heavily in the late 1990s following the publication of research by Andrew Wakefield which suggested a possible link between the inoculation and autism.

Experts have widely discredited his study and he was struck off the medical register in 2010.PHE said that while vaccine uptake levels in the UK in young children are currently very high, coverage levels dipped to a low of 80 percent in 2003, meaning significant numbers of unprotected teenagers and young adults could contract measles.

Dr. Mary Ramsay, head of immunization at Public Health England, said:“In the early 2000s there was a fall in MMR vaccination coverage in children and as a consequence, we are now seeing measles cases in young adults.“Measles can be more serious in adults with a higher likelihood of hospitalization and complications arising.“Measles is circulating in England and the rest of Europe. We often think about what travel-related vaccines we might need before going on holiday, but it’s also important to check that we are up to date with routine vaccinations like MMR.“If you are unsure if you have had two doses of MMR call your GP practice to check and catch up if needed.” (Click to Source)

 – Loved ones of Willy McCue, 19, have always thought of him as a hero. A fierce high school varsity athlete. A volunteer firefighter.

“He joined the fire department just to give back to everybody,” New City Fire Assistant Chief Richard Willows said. “That’s the type of heart he has.”

Willy’s strength and bravery are being tested to the limit. He has been in critical condition in the hospital for over a month. He caught a severe case of the flu, which led to pneumonia and sepsis.

“Both hands were amputated and both feet,” Willows said. “And they are working on his leg right now which is hopeful.”

Willy’s uniform and helmet await his return at the New City Fire Department in Rockland County. The teen volunteered here as a probationary firefighter and was a 2016 graduate of Clarkstown High School North. His former football coach set up a GoFundMe page to help.

“It’s tough. I went to go see him last week and his spirits are high right now,” volunteer firefighter Thomas Gerlich said. “I’m hoping that they stay high and let him know that we are behind him with him through this whole process.”

Willows added, “As sad as he is, he’s in good spirits and just wants to get to rehab and get back riding the trucks—that’s what our goal is.”

While Willy undergoes more surgeries, his loved ones are busy raising money to help him adjust to life when he comes home.

As of Friday afternoon, the GoFundMe campaign had nearly $74,000 in donations. The community and fire department are also coming together to organize several fundraisers starting in April. (Click to Source)

Deadly Plague could be ‘hiding in plain sight’, warn scientists

Plague ‘hiding in plain sight’, warn scientists

old-3118750__480

The bacteria that cause plague, or the Black Death, could be lying dormant in common soil and water sources, posing a serious public health risk, scientists have warned.

The finding, published in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, could explain why plague suddenly re-emerges without warning in countries such as Madagascar and even the United States.

In the middle ages the Black Death swept through Europe, killing an estimated 75 to 200 million people. It is no longer a global threat but the new research may explain its occasional outbreaks across the world.

David Markman, from Colorado State University who led the study, said that plague is endemic in many different parts of the world and its origins are still not well understood.

“The interesting and troubling part of plague, and part of the reason why there are so many unanswered questions, is that it is present in many different environments – from the jungle to the desert and everywhere in between.

“It’s difficult to find one mechanism that unites all these different locations which explains when, where and why plague breaks out when it does,” he said.

The researchers identified amoebae, bugs that live in soil and water and which are known breeding grounds for disease, as possible culprits that are protecting the plague pathogens.

The team took soil samples from the burrows of the prairie dogs of northeastern Colorado, known hosts of the plague, to test their theory.

The researchers isolated five species of amoebae and then combined them with plague bacteria to see how they would react.

Using a genetically altered strain of plague that glows bright green the scientists observed the amoebae ingesting the plague. They then saw that the plague pathogens were alive and replicating in the amoebae.

The team says their research does not mean that this process occurs naturally but is an important theory because scientists have never properly understood how plague recurs after lying dormant.

Mr Markman warned that his research had worrying implications for bioterrorism.

“Some nefarious agent or actor could easily infect an amoeba and the amoeba could be spread into the water supply or sprayed over a crop field.

“There are hundreds of other human and animal pathogens that can survive and multiply inside amoeba but throughout all humanity plague is the most deadly pathogen we have seen,” he said.

Plague is still a real threat with a particularly virulent outbreak in Madagascar killing 202 people last year. There are a handful of cases in the United States every year, with 16 cases including four deaths in 2015.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organisation, called on the international community to do more to help understand why plague outbreaks occur.

“WHO will continue to support plague preparedness, control and response, and we call on our international development partners to help us end human outbreaks.

“This will include better understanding of the wider factors that allow plague to spread, and strengthening national capacities to manage similar emergencies in the future,” he said. (Click to Source)

Worms pulled from Oregon woman’s eye in first known case of infection

Fourteen tiny worms removed in 2016 case of Thelazia gulosa, a parasitic infection spread by flies and previously seen only in cattle

600

An Oregon woman who had worms coming out of her eye is being called the first known human case of a parasitic infection spread by flies.

Fourteen tiny worms were removed from the left eye of the 26-year-old woman over a 20-day period in August 2016 before her symptoms dissipated. The worms were translucent and each less than half an inch long. Scientists reported the case on Monday.

The woman was diagnosed with Thelazia gulosa, a type of eye worm seen in the northern United States and southern Canada – but only in cattle. It is spread by flies that feed on eyeball lubrication.

The woman had been horseback riding in Gold Beach, Oregon, in a cattle farming area. After a week of eye irritation, she pulled a worm from her eye.

In a study published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, researchers said North Americans may be more vulnerable than previously understood to such infections.

If the worms remain in a person’s eye for a prolonged time, they can cause corneal scarring and even blindness, according to the researchers.

“Cases of eye worm parasitic infections are rare in the USA, and this case turned out to be a species of the Thelazia that had never been reported in humans,” said study lead author Richard Bradbury, who works with the CDC’s Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria.

Previous cases of eye worm infections have been reported worldwide, predominantly in Europe and Asia and in rural communities with close proximity to animals and with poor living standards, the researchers said.

Eye worms are found in a variety of animals including dogs, cats and certain wild carnivores. (Click to Source)

Newly emerged superbug, hyper-resistant and hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae discovered

The Partner State Key Laboratory of Chirosciences at the Department of Applied Biology and Chemical Technology (ABCT) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) discovered a newly emerged superbug, hyper-resistant and hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae, which may cause untreatable and fatal infections in relatively healthy individuals and will pose enormous threat to human health.

Klebsiella pneumoniae/CDC
Klebsiella pneumoniae/CDC

Prof. Chen Sheng, Professor of ABCT, collaborating with Prof. Rong Zhang from the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University, conducted an investigation into a fatal outbreak of pneumonia in the Second Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University in China in February 2016. The study involved five patients who underwent surgical operation for multiple-trauma. All of them were later infected in the intensive care unit (ICU) and developed severe pneumonia, and eventually died of septicaemia and multiple organ failure. The causative agent of these five patients was found to be a carbapenem-resistant K. pneumoniae (CRKP) strain, a type of previously-defined superbug. Furthermore, these CRKP strains are also hypervirulent and belong to ST11 type of CRKP, the most prevalent and transmissible CRKP strains in Asia. As these strains simultaneously exhibit the features of hyper-resistance, hypervirulence and high transmissibility, they can be considered a real superbug known as ST11 CR-HvKP (ST11 carbapenem-resistant hypervirulent K. pneumoniae).

ST11 K. pneumoniae strains proliferate in the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) of human and animals and may cause opportunistic infections such as pneumonia in clinical settings. These strains, after acquiring plasmid encoding a carbapenemase gene, become resistant to the carbapenem antibiotics and caused untreatable or hard-to-be treated infections, therefore defined as superbug. These superbug strains could further evolve to become ST11 CR-HvKP through acquisition of the hypervirulence plasmids. The ST11 CR-HvKP strains do not only infect lungs and cause pneumonia, but also invade the bloodstream and other internal organs. Due to its hypervirulence and phenotypic resistance to commonly used antibiotics, ST11 CR-HvKP strains may cause untreatable and fatal infections in relatively healthy individuals with normal immunity.

ST11 CR-HvKP strains possess a mucoid outer layer, which enables them to stick to various materials, such as the surface of medical devices and tubing as well as other surfaces in the ICU. The transmission route is not clear yet, but our data suggest that medical equipment such as ventilator and different catheters might be transmitting these new superbug strains. Human-to-human transmission may also be possible, mainly in hospital settings. Improved infection prevention and control policy in hospital seems to be effective to control further transmission of this superbug in the ICU. Novel strategies must be devised to prevent ST11 CR-HvKP from proliferating extensively in the human intestinal tract where they were detected. ST11 CR-HvKP can easily be detectable by the Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method, targeting specific resistance and virulence genes. The study showed that the use of colistin (the last resort drug for carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae infections) alone or in combination with other drugs were not very effective in treating infections caused by ST11 CR-HvKP. Ceftazidime/avibactam may be the effective antibiotic, but ST11 CR-HvKP may develop resistance to this antibiotic very quickly based on the clinical data from the USA.

Prevalence of ST11 CR-HvKP strains in Hong Kong is currently unknown. Two studies conducted in Hong Kong have shown that mortality rate due to K. pneumoniae-mediated bloodstream infections was high, reaching 20% and 32% respectively. We plan to collaborate with clinicians in local hospitals to investigate the proportion of clinical K. pneumoniae isolates that belong to HvKP or CR-HvKP, and characterize their genetic features.

Flu stomps the nation, overwhelming ERs and leaving 20 children dead

hospital-1338585__480

(CNN)The flu virus has reached nearly every corner of the nation.

Influenza activity is widespread in all states except Hawaii (and the District of Columbia), according to the weekly flu report released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Flu is everywhere in the US right now,” said Dr. Dan Jernigan, director of the CDC’s influenza branch. “This is the first year we’ve had the entire continental US at the same level (of flu activity) at the same time.” It has been an early flu season that seems to be peaking now, he said, with a 5.8% increase in laboratory-confirmed cases this week over last.
There were 11,718 new laboratory-confirmed cases during the week ending January 6, bringing the season total to 60,161. These numbers do not include all people who have had the flu, as many do not see a doctor when sick.
Seven additional pediatric deaths were reported during the week ending January 6, bringing the total for the season to 20.
For older people, the CDC estimates deaths based on pneumonia and influenza. Based on National Center for Health Statistics data, 7% of all deaths that occurred during the week ending December 23 were due to pneumonia and influenza. This is above the rate considered normal for this period, according to Lynnette Brammer, head of the CDC’s Domestic Flu Surveillance team.
Additionally, 22.7 hospitalizations for every 100,000 people occurred over the week ending January 6, compared with 13.7 per 100,000 for the week ending December 30. Those older than 65 represent the largest group hospitalized, though people within the 50-to-64 age range and children younger than 5 are also experiencing high rates of hospitalization.
“We are currently in the midst of a very active flu season, with much of the country experiencing widespread and intense flu activity,” CDC Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald said. “The flu season may be peaking now. We know from past experience it will take many more weeks for flu activity to slow down.”
Brammer said, “Basically, it looks like things are starting to level off. We didn’t see the sharp increases that we saw the last couple of weeks.”
“Over the next few weeks, we’ll know if we peaked or not,” she said. “I would hope that the areas that have been hit a little bit earlier in the South and up the West Coast, I’m hoping that those people — particularly some of the states in the South — may have hit their peak and are on their way down.”
Some of the northern states may still be going up in the number of flu cases, she said. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see that. But, either way, one of the really important things to remember is there are, probably for everybody, weeks to go in this flu season.”
Vaccine effectiveness has not been calculated, but officials know that the most common strain making people sick this year is H3N2, Brammer said.
Jernigan said H3N2 seasons are associated with higher rates of hospitalizations and deaths, as well as with lower vaccine effectiveness. He believes that when calculations are made at season’s end, vaccine effectiveness may be around 30% for this season.
Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University, provided a nutshell description of this season: “Started early; it then blossomed essentially all over the country more or less simultaneously. The upswing has been dramatic, and essentially the entire country is affected — some parts more than others — but flu is everywhere.”
Schaffner suspects that holiday travel helped transport the flu virus and expedited its transmission. “All those hugs and kisses … we’re seeing the consequences now.”
H3N2, this year’s predominant strain, “tends to produce more severe disease, particularly among older persons,” Schaffner said. “Doctors’ offices, clinics and emergency rooms all over the country are feeling the H3N2 impact right now.”
Generally, people most at risk for complications are older people, children and people with weak immune systems.
“Influenza and its complications disproportionately affect people who are 65 and older,” Schaffner said. “They account for 80% of the deaths, and then there are also deaths in younger people, often who have underlying illnesses, such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and also in some young children.”

Two tragic deaths

However, flu can also claim the lives of healthy adults such as Jenny Ching, 51, who died January 5 after battling what she thought was just a bad cold.
Her husband, Matt Ching, told CNN affiliate WCVB that the Massachusetts resident “had the flu, and she also developed a bacterial infection, and it was just really severe and caused severe pneumonia, and her body just didn’t react to antibiotics.”
Ching said he wasn’t sure whether his wife had gotten a flu shot this season, though in seasons past, that was the norm for the mother of two boys, ages 9 and 7.
Schaffner noted that “the usual flu death is a person who gets influenza, gets all that inflammation in their chest and then has the complication of pneumonia.” The flu “can take a perfectly healthy person — a child, a young adult, robust — and put them in the ER in 24 to 48 hours.”
That was the case for Kyler Baughman, 21, who died unexpectedly December 28 at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh. “Robust” characterizes Baughman perfectly.
The Latrobe, Pennsylvania, resident, who often posted pictures of himself at the gym on Facebook, was studying to be a physical trainer and worked not one but two jobs, his mother told CNN affiliate WPXI.
“It doesn’t seem real,” said his mother, Beverly. She recounted that her son looked run-down when she saw him December 23. On December 26, Baughman went to work but left early because he wasn’t feeling well. The next day, he visited the ER at Westmoreland County Hospital. Health personnel immediately decided to fly him to UPMC, where he died less than 24 hours later.
The cause of his death, as reported by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner, was influenza, septic shock and multiple organ failure. Unlike the usual flu death resulting from pneumonia complications, Schaffner said, “this is a different phenomenon.”
The viral flu infection stimulated an immune and inflammatory response in Baughman’s body. “This happens to everyone,” Schaffner noted, but when the person is a “very strong, robust person,” there are times when that response is “overwhelming.” In such cases, cytokines — proteins created as part of the inflammatory response — create a “cytokine storm” in the body. “And this cytokine storm can actually lead to sepsis in the person.”
Braugham’s parents hope that by sharing his story, they might save someone else.
“I just think he ignored it and thought it would go away, like most people,” his mother said. Added his father, Todd: “Don’t let things go. Whenever you have fever and you have it multiple days, don’t let it go. Get it taken care of.”

Different states, different responses

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey declared a state public health emergency because of the flu on Thursday.
Scott Harris, acting state health officer at the Alabama Department of Public Health, said the influenza outbreak includes high activity throughout the state but particularly in metropolitan areas. This “crush” means some hospitals are operating over capacity, leaving some patients sitting in ERs. The public health emergency order helps health care professionals manage resources more efficiently and provides leeway so alternative care can be provided when personnel are unable to offer standard care.
“If you’re sick, please try to stay home if you can do that and get in touch with your health care provider,” Harris said.
On the West Coast, Dr. Jasjit Singh, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Children’s Hospital of Orange County, said 27 influenza-related deaths have occurred in California as of December 30: all among adults under 65 years old.
“It’s been an earlier flu season than in years past,” Singh said. As of January 6, the hospital has admitted about a quarter of the 303 patients seen with influenza A infections, compared with about 19% of the 89 cases seen last year at this time. Meanwhile, of 78 influenza B cases, about 13% required admission, compared with 22% of 27 cases last year.
Overall, California reported 7,306 laboratory-confirmed cases for the season as of December 30.
Texas, which laboratory-confirmed 5,585 cases of the flu as of that date, is seeing activity levels “at the highest level — widespread — for a few weeks,” said Lara M. Anton, a press officer for the Department of State Health Services.
Because the Lone Star State counts flu deaths from death certificate codes, there’s also a “significant lag” between when a death occurs and when the death is reported, she said. However the majority of deaths this season occurred among people 65 and older.
“There are reports of hospitals throughout the state that have needed to divert non-emergency ambulances for periods of time because of overcrowding in their ER,” Anton said. With most hospitals coming off “divert status” within the same day, the state’s hospital system has been managing the increased number of patients. The department continues to monitor the situation closely and “will step in with support when it is requested,” she said.
Texas is encouraging “anyone with symptoms to stay home and to see their health care provider, as antiviral medications may shorten the duration of their illness,” Anton said. Amid an outbreak in San Antonio, one school took that advice to heart and closed Friday for a “flu day.”
Correction: A previous version of this story stated that 27 flu deaths occurred in California among people over, not under, the age of 65. (Click to Source)

America: Home of the HUMAN LAB RATS … Why prescription medications are mostly unsafe chemical experiments that worsen overall health

white-mouse-rat-lab-e1514548778309

Most people think it’s completely normal to take prescription medications, believing that our bodies need synthetic, lab-made chemicals to balance or help control bodily functions or biological processes that aren’t performing properly. What other choices do we have, after all?

Put it this way: Medical doctors go to college for eight years to learn how to juggle multiple medications while reading all of your symptoms with fancy technological diagnostic tests, so shouldn’t you just shut the heck up and do what you’re told, when you’re told, without asking annoying, invasive questions that will most likely have boondoggles for answers?

How many people, after all, are not taking at least one medication for anxiety, depression, inflammation, cholesterol, blood pressure, insomnia or pain?

Actually, there are plenty of us, because we know that “Western” medicine isn’t really medicine at all, but symptom-cover-up chemicals for deeper rooted problems that almost always stem from what we eat, drink and put on our bodies.

Are you a “drug abuser” when you simply take the drugs prescribed to you by a medical doctor?

Prescription drugs and their abuse in America date back over a century. It all started with a concoction made with alcohol and opium called Laudanum. Yes, it was a pain “remedy” that doctors cross-prescribed for anxiety, sleeplessness, diarrhea or incessant coughing. Sound familiar?

It was quite addictive, as any watered-down heroin can be. Since women in the 1800s in America were prohibited from drinking at taverns and saloons, they simply went to the doctor for treatment for cramps or emotional problems, and voila!

Currently, about 35 million people abuse opioids worldwide. Unintentional overdoses have quadrupled since 2000. Thanks to drugs like oxycodone (think of Percocet) and hydrocodone (think of Vicodin), the U.S. is the biggest consumer of deadly prescription painkillers.

Did you know that for the past 15 years, death certificates have listed opioid analgesic poisoning as the cause of death more often than cocaine or heroin?

Maybe you’re just addicted to soda, though. Did you know that a doctor invented Coca Cola, but in the process jump-started his own morphine addiction when he added cocaine to this new drink and sold it at a pharmacy in Atlanta during the Civil War? Ask your doctor if soda and addictive, deadly, heroin-based prescription drugs are right for you.

Are you a lab rat in the middle of an extended, insidious experiment being carried out by mad scientists and medical doctors?

Have you been told repeatedly that your health problems are all “genetic?” That’s because doctors want you to believe that there’s no cure, only chemical medication “management.”

Have you been told you have a chemical imbalance in your brain? That’s because you’re consuming chemicals regularly in your food and medicine, including in artificial sweeteners, tap water, prescription medications and vaccinations.

Most prescription drugs and inoculations are never tested for safety or efficacy, but rather are “fast-tracked” through FDA and CDC approval when pharma lobbyists pay regulators millions of dollars to just say “yes.”

In most other instances, scientific “testing” is simply faked, flawed, altered and skewed to produce the results the pharma companies need to make profits and spread more disease and disorder (think of the Swine flu and Zika virus vaccines here).

Even the yearly flu shot is one huge, dangerous medical experiment that the CDC admits is often a failure. Maybe the reason you need prescription medications is because you’re taking prescription medications. Think about that for a minute.

Now do the math: If the flu shot is a hoax, and prescribed painkillers kill millions of people, then do you really believe your prescription medications, which are dished out by the same rogue doctors and scientists, are given with your “good health” in mind?

Let’s take an inside look at what all the American “lab rats” are experiencing.

Chantix (stop-smoking medication) can cause suicidal thoughts. Nexium can cause inflammation of your kidneys and vitamin deficiencies. Vasotec can ruin your liver. Xanax is extremely addictive and abrupt stoppage can cause seizures. Plavix can cause you to cough up blood. Lipitor can break down your muscles, and can cause kidney failure and long-term nerve problems.

Should we continue?

Mirapex gives some people hallucinations and causes memory gaps. Ambien can cause impaired thinking. Risperdal can give you muscle tremors and uncontrolled movements (drive recklessly much?). Klonopin can make depression symptoms worse, adding in suicidal thoughts and addiction. Actos and Avandia heighten the risk of heart attacks and bladder cancer.

Hey America … picture yourself blindfolded, drugged up and running through a rigged maze with dangerous traps and no exits. This is the world of flu shots, prescription medications, genetically modified food and fluoridated tap water. It’s time to go organic and natural for good. Talk to a naturopathic physician and question anything that has side effects worse than the condition you’re considering treating. Then research the power of natural remedies at NaturalPedia.com. Remember, you don’t have to be a lab rat! (Click to Source)

 

Esteemed German Climatologist Blasts Global Warming As ‘Clever Propaganda’ Tool

stand-up-for-science-rally

Retired German climatologist Dr. Werner Kirstein recently spoke on the topic of climate change before a packed audience at the 14th Anti-Censorship Conference (AZK) last November, blasting the politicization of climate science and taking issue on how data are (mis)handled and deceitfully presented to the public.

“Politicogenic warming”

During the presentation Kirstein comes down extremely hard on the media, claiming that German flagship news media and politicians offer the public only propaganda on certain issues. Thus in Kirstein’s view climate change has little to do with mankind (anthropogenic) but mostly is what he calls “deleted” because the science has been seriously compromised by politics, power-hungry bureaucrats and politically motivated organizations, such as the WMO, IPCC  and The World Bank.

“Sad, but that’s how it works”

Kirstein also claims that universities have been corrupted in that government funding flows only if a researchers show there is a connection between something and CO2-induced warming, no matter how absurd the subject. “It all comes down to funding,” Kirstein notes. “It’s sad, but that’s how it works.”

Climate science is totally politicized.”

Kirstein also reminds that there are many scientists who have been very critical of climate science and that the media in Germany supplies only half-truths on the subject, and is thus providing audiences “pure propaganda“.

Hockey stick a propaganda tool

mann-slide-lifezette

Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann

The retired professor shows that climate change has been normal throughout the Earth’s history and that we’ve seen even warmer periods during our current Holocene. He characterizes Prof. Michael E. Mann’s hockey stick chart as a propaganda tool. Kirstein also feels that the climate models are faulty and unreliable and that they have been manipulated to make CO2 appear as the driving climate driver.

History, he says, shows there is no correlation between CO2 and global temperature and that statements claiming otherwise are “bogus correlations”.

Even a quadrupling would benefit…

Kirstein then asserts that atmospheric CO2 concentrations have a long way to go before there would be a risk of trouble, noting that especially C3 plants would benefit immensely from a quadrupling the atmospheric CO2 concentration.

Fear and fraud

Kirstein also believes that climate scientists are irresponsibly using climate science to spread fear and panic among the population, and says that Potsdam Institute Director Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber “ought to be happy he does not reside in Switzerland” because there falsely spreading fear among the public is punishable with up to 3 years in prison.

Media, scientists propagating fear

The long outspoken German professor also characterizes the notion of “climate protection” as a superstition, a concept that makes no sense. He showed the packed audience a variety of ways of how alarmist scientists and media have used a variety of bogus claims to propagate fear among the public, such as those relating to glacier retreat, polar bear population, unexpected heavy snowfalls, polar sea ice, cold winters, desertification and sea level rise.

Smear, and then run from factual discussion

The politicization has gotten so bad that Kirstein is saddened to say that today “belief in the true nature of climate variability is labeled as conspiracy theory or populism – a killer argument that allows the retreat from every factual discussion.”

Kirstein summarizes:

You don’t have to be a climatologist to reveal that manmade climate change is in fact presented as a political ideology that uses the aid of clever media propaganda.”

Delightfully, Kirstein was applauded throughout the presentation, indicating that the audience is on to the scam of catastrophic “anthropogenic” global warming. (Click to Source)

 

 

Remember when all the climate change experts warned that winters would be WARMER and snowfall would DECREASE?

(Natural News) As we now sit in one of the coldest “chill waves” in America’s history, with NYC poised to break the record for the coldest New Year’s Eve ever, it’s noteworthy to recall how all the “climate change” experts used to be global warming alarmists.

Just a few years ago, these global warming experts told us that winter temperatures would get steadily warmer. Snowfall would decrease, and the Earth would become so warm that the ice caps would melt and inundate coastal cities under a tidal wave of rising ocean levels. In reality, however, snow cover has continued to increase since the 1950s, but this didn’t stop mainstream media fake news rags like Newsweek from claiming exactly the opposite.

The IPCC also pushed the global warming narrative in 2001, and Al Gore and other global warming alarmists heaped on terror-scale warnings about melting ice that would drown cities like New York and Miami (as if liquid water instead of frozen ice is somehow bad for the planet…).

“Progressive” science: FAKE the data!

When the scientific data didn’t fit their narrative, of course, they faked the data. Nearly all the data used for so-called “global warming” projections, it turns out, had been dishonestly altered in order to create a “warming trend” where none exists at all. In another example of science hucksterism, global warming alarmists have been caught red-handed faking sea level data in order to falsely support their “rising oceans” narrative. As explained by the NoTricksZone website:

In a new paper published in Earth Systems and Environment this month, Australian scientists Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier uncover evidence that Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) overseers appear to have been engaging in the “highly questionable” and “suspicious” practice of adjusting historical tide gauge data to show recent accelerated sea level rise where no such acceleration (or rise) exists.

The authors expose how PSMSL  data-adjusters make it appear that stable sea levels can be rendered to look like they are nonetheless rising at an accelerated pace.

This adjustment of tide gauge data to yield a rising sea level trend where none exists is not occasional or episodic.  Instead, for every adjustment of raw data analyzed, “the adjustments are always in the direction to produce a large rise in sea level.”

The suspicious perpetuity of this pattern strongly suggests that there is an agenda driving these arbitrary and subjective realignments.

The global warming hoax couldn’t be reconciled with global temperature and ocean level data… so they morphed the science hoax into “climate change”

The problem with the global warming narrative, of course, is that it contradicted the scientific evidence which clearly showed the Earth wasn’t warming as had been frighteningly predicted by apocalyptic global warming alarmists. So they changed the narrative to “climate change,” which is now recognized as one of the most stupid-headed science fails of all time, given that Earth’s climate has always demonstrated rapid change, long before modern humans arrived on the scene. Perhaps that’s why over 31,000 scientists now say global warming is a complete hoax.

Now, thanks to the climate change hoax narrative, a shockingly high percentage of liberals actually believe that there were no forest fires, no hurricanes, no tornadoes, no floods, no droughts and no snow storms before the invention of the combustion engine (and the subsequent burning of fossil fuels). No one has ever told them, for example, that carbon dioxide levels have been over ten times higher than today’s levels throughout Earth’s history. Because of the Left’s runaway science denialism, college students have also been taught that carbon dioxide is a poison rather than plant food. In truth, nearly all plants on Earth consume carbon dioxide as a critical nutrient. Higher CO2 means more rainforests, faster growth of food crops and more “green” planet-wide. Yet stupidly, Leftists have been brainwashed to believe that CO2 is toxic to the planet. (Which just goes to show you how liberalism can convince some people that 1+1 = 5.)

Remember all this as you’re freezing this winter. Also remember that before there was global warming, the status quo nut jobs in the media (and scientific community) were all pushing a “global freezing” narrative. In 1970 the global warming crowd painted an apocalyptic picture of what would happen by the year 2000.

“1) At the first Earth Day celebration, in 1969, environmentalist Nigel Calder warned, “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind,’” writes RightWingNews.

Via Barbwire.com:

This hysteria and apocalyptic fear mongering reminds many of the 1970 Earth Day predictions that fizzled like a firecracker:

  • End of civilization in 15-30 years
  • 100-200 million deaths to starvation yearly for 10 years
  • A new ice age by 2000

That article also lists the top 10 Al Gore predictions that collapsed in the wake of reality:

10 years after Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” guilt/fear producing predictions, let’s close by examining just how accurate his “science” proved to be on his way to the bank.

1. Rising Sea Levels – inaccurate and misleading. Al was even discovered purchasing a beachfront mansion!

2. Increased Tornadoes – declining for decades.

3. New Ice Age in Europe – they’ve been spared; it never happened.

4. South Sahara Drying Up – completely untrue.

5. Massive Flooding in China and India – again didn’t happen.

6. Melting Arctic – false – 2015 represents the largest refreezing in years.

7. Polar Bear Extinction – actually they are increasing!

8. Temperature Increases Due to CO2 – no significant rising for over 18 years.

9. Katrina a Foreshadow of the Future – false – past 10 years, no F3 hurricanes; “longest drought ever!”

10.The Earth Would be in a “True Planetary Emergency” Within a Decade Unless Drastic Action Taken to Reduce Greenhouse Gasses – never
happened.

As you’re freezing your buns off this Winter, just remember how many global warming charlatans told you the Earth was “warming”

As any rational person has come to realize by now, the global warming narrative was (and is) a complete hoax. The fact that 75% of the continental United States is right now experiencing plunging temperatures is yet another contradiction of the “warming” we were all told would have practically ended Winter by now.

Instead of the warming we were promised by Al Gore, we’re actually getting subzero chills across much of the country. The National Guard has even been mobilized in some areas to deal with the extreme cold and snow fall. How is this possible if the Earth has been “warming” for a couple of decades as Al Gore promised?

As it turns out, Al Gore was lying all along. And in much the same way the left-wing deep state tried to fabricate evidence against Trump (the “Trump Dossier”) to destroy his administration, the left-wing branches of science are faking all the climate science to create a completely false, fabricated “warming trend” that simply doesn’t exist. If the oceans really were rising, after all, scientists wouldn’t have to keep faking the ocean levels data, would they?

Keep all this in mind as you’re trying to stay warm this Winter. You’ve been subjected to a world-class science swindle of epic scale. Carbon dioxide isn’t a planetary poison. Even the EPA chief has now admitted CO2 isn’t the cause of global warming. Ocean levels are not rising at a catastrophic pace, and NASA has even confirmed that ocean levels have been falling for the last two years in some areas. Arctic ice sheets are actually expanding right now, not contracting, and the UN climate change report is now widely recognized as a work of fiction.

Every single thing that status quo science has claimed about climate change has been exhaustively debunked. It was all a farce from the get-go. (Click to Source)
