Outbreak, you mean. But yes, If I was anywhere near the epicenter I'd be gas-masked up or I wouldn't leave the house.

Just be smart. Don't touch things in public, keep your hands away from your face, keep your immunity up, and avoid crowds.

It seems much worse over there than we know of. The Chinese gov isn't too keen on letting out how bad it is in some areas, and the hospitals are packed to standing room only. All it takes it a few sick people in there to spread the virus further.
It's so ****ed to have a government try to hide the severity of the situation at the expense of it's own people.

I don't know whether to be afraid of the next spanish flu or thankful that the global depopulation could put the brakes on climate change.

Human depopulation won't make any difference.

Primarily, climate change is due to animal agriculture, and the accumulate plant biomass grown to feed them; this Feed crop is terrible at co2 sequestration (vs forest), and the cows themselves generate the bulk of the methane.

I don't follow your logic. livestock population is proportional to human population, so if humanity is decimated, then fewer animals will be farmed. unfarmed fertile land will quickly turn back into wilderness as hedgegrows encroach.

The distribution of Who eats meat is not equal. " "Murica" " kekeke.

Livestock population is CERTAINLY NOT proportional to human population.

In fact, the MAJORITY of the Growing-Population (The poor), eat hardly any meat.

are you suggesting that if global human population is decimated then the survivors will up their meat intake to compensate for any reduction in carbon emmisions?

There is only 1 path, that will lead to human survival on this planet.

Even if you hate animals and believe broccoli = icky,  humanity has to go vegan OR DIE.

This is not a debate for anyone except the Corporations, and the News Conglomerates they own.

Milk industry is collapsing, this will only continue exponentially. The beef can not be priced where it is without milk. As the price goes up, consumers will stop buying, until all those sellers go bankrupt too.

The sellers go bankrupt, because the PEOPLE go bankrupt in the current animal agriculture feedback loop, from eating the beef, drinking the milk, which gives them heart disease + cancer, bankrupting healthcare, (which is YOUR MONEY, You PAID for EVERY DIME)..

By ~2030-2040, ~80-100% of the humans on this planet will be Vegan.


Australia has burned down.  And this will keep happening, every year, until either EVERYONE goes veggie (thus saving) australia, OR until there are no more Australians, and no more humans anywhere else.

Nature is cruel but fair, cut-throat yet Elegant.

To be fair, the majority of those figures are elderly people.

It was from bats. They had this virus in the past, but never said anything about it.
Keep checking the news, they may mention it soon :thumb:

There's no point in wearing them all day. They don't work if they get wet, so after breathing into them for a while, you might as well not wear them at all :p .

Also, the whole point of filter masks is that it's hard to breathe through them ;) .

I've never heard of that. Will look into it.

My statements are referring to the White paper by Sailesh Rao, Ph. D.  ,  Where it is quite clear that animal agriculture is responsible for 87% of greenhouse gas emissions

https://www.climatehealers.org/animal-agriculture-white-paper

Sailesh Rao is an Electrical Engineering PHD (Stanford), You can trust his <Math>

He's among the pioneers of alot of early tech on Mpeg encoding and internet infrastructure.
