Good old boy Jason C.(unt)

Of course you can still contract Covid plus die from it, while also being able transmit it even after getting your shots.

But you will far less likely to be admitted to hospital due to severity of symptoms and extremely unlikely to die as a result of infection.

Like Active servicemen wearing body armor are less likely to receive fatal injury if hit by a round.

It's up to each individual to weigh up their personal risk. (of side effects from vaccine and covid)

My daughter who spent 8 days in hospital with this disease still has some severe problems 6 months on, scarring of lungs and kidney damage.

Most people deal with the infection as a mild illness or even have zero symptoms, but if you are unlucky and your immune system causes massive inflammation in reaction to Covid you will be very ill. The problem is that you cannot tell in advance if your body will be react badly to Covid or indeed the vaccine.

The Author of the gibberish Robert A. Manning has his agenda.

In this case his remit is to trash cryptocurrencies in any old way with zero original thought.

His agenda in this instance - climate change - because he read (a load of crap) somewhere, without doing any of his own research on the subject.

If you care you can read up his well documented bio. Now a has been writing articles for a few hundred bucks for downmarket publications.

Haha! Said no one on the internet ever, lol. It's interesting to me, once you get outside our btc bubble how completely uneducated on this topic the vast majority of people are about it. It's like Dunning-Kruger Mt. Stupid level understanding combined with complete apathy/uninterest about the topic they claim to know all about.

This is crazy absolutely nuts


Maybe some people never seen a microwave over or what 2.4 GHz can do.
Have device close to brain on left and right side is absolutly nuts

Ok so I presume you don't drive a car but ride a horse instead? You don't watch TV or listen to the radio because these devices emit harmful radiation? Internet is also dangerous because your wifi is frying your brain while you're typing this message? Don't forget about your phone and it's harmful GSM and 4G waves. Not even mentioning your house made of harmful concrete, fillers and plaster? Clothes, food etc etc etc  Grin

The OP should be more worried about sunlight esp UV radiation or high energy particles from deep space passing through them. Or naturally occurring radon gas that collects in many peoples homes.

People make up their minds based on nothing much, maybe simple feelings, and then marshal arguments to buttress those feelings.


True, part of being human I guess. But then to take the next step and promote that nothing burger via publishing an essay to financial media seems a lot of work put into cognitive dissonance.

Cars suck.
Cars have contributed positively to the development of the world and have contributed hugely to the health of people where would we be without cars taking people to the hospital when they need care or ambulances which save peoples life on the daily? If you want to argue about how cars kill people with their pollution I would argue back that they save more lives by providing access to those that do not have emergency healthcare close by a way of getting to those health care that they need.

I am not sure I can teach you the whole concept of thermodynamics in a reasonable amount of time in this thread.

That's fine. I believe my o-level and a-level teachers and the lecturers that contributed to my physics degree have you covered.

What, a car emitting radiation, is that some kind of vaccine side effect?
And no the router is not right next to the brain but sure wouldn't mind upgrading to Lifi.
4G waves, you are clueless. Fourth generation or fifth generation is not a wave, different operators purchased a particular spectrum and operate at that wavelength. 5G has lots of different waves and operators can switch between. Some wavelengths are bad (2,4Ghz, 60Ghz) some weapons (93Ghz)
There is a reason microwave ovens work at 2.4Ghz and not 2.3 or 2.5Ghz no sane person would sit in it.

That's fine. I believe my o-level and a-level teachers and the lecturers that contributed to my physics degree have you covered.

Then why ask?  And I am not particularly impressed with degrees bragged about on a internet forum to be honest. All I am getting from quite a few of you is that you just want to argue. I am done at this point. Zero sum game.

------

Good night.

... nobody is getting argumentative except you, when you got called on the bogus "earth is a closed system" claim ... probably the original sin of that quasi-religious pseudo-science know as "climate science"

Its all good...I dont want to be more of a dick than I already have. Fuck the maths of it all and just go outside and look around...really look. Things are changing...things have changed just in my lifetime. I have seen it with mine own eye. How many species have gone extinct the last 100 years...how many tons of toxic waste has been dumped into land fills and our oceans? How many extreme weather events happened over the last 20 years? How many glaciers have melted affecting water supply..how much have the polar caps melted affecting the jet streams? Putting a stick in a pot and stirring things around and expecting no noticeable effects is ludicrous in my opinion. My whole point was that I think we can do better. Plain and simple.

... and here you've engaged in another of the green marxism misinformation tactics, conflating many different pollution problems, some real, some ill-perceived anecodotes, into a mish-mash of "the earth is ending, zomg!" to justify some crazy idea that shutting down C02, CH4 emissions will 'cool' the warming 'earth' ... a) it's not proven it is even warming particularly that much recently or b) that it is due to increases in "greenhouses gases" and by how much and by which percentage of the gases that are anthropogenic.

... Earth has always had extreme weather events, statistically the last 20 years are not particularly unusual in the recorded history, which is exceedingly short, and the geologic record suggests there have been far greater extremes in weather

... the meteor that hit the Yucatan penisula and wiped out the dinosaurs sent a tidal wave 1500m high! into the south coast of the USA and sent up a plume of debris into the atmosphere that blocked out sunlight for 10 years ... want to explain how relatively dangerous humans are to the earth's closed system is again?

So the earth is supposedly 1.2C above per-industrial temperatures, no date is ever given for the end of the pre-industrial era.

Lets assume it was 1750.  

Dutch Inventor Fahrenheit had developed a fairly accurate mercury thermometer by this date.
While the two fixed points of calibration, freezing and boiling point were assumed to be accurate the points between these two were merely interpolated.
These early capillary tubes varied in diameter throughout their length and affected accuracy, a variation of a few degrees was certainly possible.

No standard method of recording air temperatures was in place for another 100 years into the industrial revolution, when Thomas Stevenson in 1864 developed his Stevenson's screen which standardized how temps were measured. In a slatted white box 4 to 6 feet above ground level.

Whilst with modern technology and satellite surveillance, earths average temperatures can be published with certain accuracy, those of pre industrial times cannot. There is insufficient and accurate enough data to do so and to publish as fact the figure of a 1.2C difference is disingenuous.

The problem is the earth was really warm with no ice caps and we can all argue that we are or are not going back to that point.

But we are not doing simple basic moves.

Solar
solar
solar
solar
solar
solar

mine coal and store it do not burn it.

That simple move is just in case the sun gets colder.

At the moment the sun is warm and giving use 'free' energy .

Burning coal is moron move.

What happens if the sun cools a lot and solar truly sucks. forcing more coal to be used.  oh that's right we were burning it when we had plenty of 'free' sun.

The above idea to put solar on every roof top means we burn less coal.
We mine the same and store it just in case we get cold and not much sun.

Unfortunately the idea above will never happen.

Due to the false fight over whether or not global warming is real and caused by people.

It does not matter either way yes to global warming or no to global warming  my plan above is sound.


Yet no one talks about on the left or the right.
So we are fucked and will get fucked more.
While the rich have mars and moon bases incase the earth has a really bad crash. In 50-100 years.
