work should start immediately on developing a vaccine.

Or you could just simply stop breeding and consuming chickens.

The bugs are now resistant to antibiotics as a result of overuse of medicine,” he says.

Western solution to western problem creates an even bigger problem. Shocker.

Quote
Greger argues that there have been three eras of human disease: first, when we started to domesticate animals about 10,000 years ago and were infected with their diseases, such as measles and chickenpox; then in the 18th and 19th centuries, when the Industrial Revolution led to epidemics of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancer; and now, because of the agricultural herding intensification that is leading to zoonotic, or animal-borne, diseases such as bird flu, salmonella, Mers, Nipah and Covid-19.

Jews and gentiles create disease, got it.

"shampoo"

Water that has previously absorbed starch from cereals makes a good Aryan cleaning liquid. I myself use it mainly for washing dishes (replacing Western dishwashing liquid) but it can also be used to wash hair (among other uses):

Before quinoa can be eaten the saponin must be washed out from the grain prior to cooking. Pre-Columbian Andean civilizations used this soapy by-product as a shampoo.[21]

Which civilization introduced semiconductors into the world? Answer: the same one as usual.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semiconductor

Quote
Thomas Johann Seebeck was the first to notice an effect due to semiconductors, in 1821.[28] In 1833, Michael Faraday reported that the resistance of specimens of silver sulfide decreases, when they are heated. This is contrary to the behavior of metallic substances such as copper. In 1839, Alexandre Edmond Becquerel reported observation of a voltage between a solid and a liquid electrolyte, when struck by light, the photovoltaic effect. In 1873, Willoughby Smith observed that selenium resistors exhibit decreasing resistance, when light falls on them. In 1874, Karl Ferdinand Braun observed conduction and rectification in metallic sulfides, although this effect had been discovered much earlier by Peter Munck af Rosenschold (sv) writing for the Annalen der Physik und Chemie in 1835,[29] and Arthur Schuster found that a copper oxide layer on wires has rectification properties that ceases, when the wires are cleaned. William Grylls Adams and Richard Evans Day observed the photovoltaic effect in selenium in 1876.[30]

A unified explanation of these phenomena required a theory of solid-state physics, which developed greatly in the first half of the 20th century. In 1878 Edwin Herbert Hall demonstrated the deflection of flowing charge carriers by an applied magnetic field, the Hall effect. The discovery of the electron by J.J. Thomson in 1897 prompted theories of electron-based conduction in solids. Karl Baedeker, by observing a Hall effect with the reverse sign to that in metals, theorized that copper iodide had positive charge carriers. Johan Koenigsberger classified solid materials like metals, insulators, and "variable conductors" in 1914 although his student Josef Weiss already introduced the term Halbleiter (a semiconductor in modern meaning) in his Ph.D. thesis in 1910.[31][32] Felix Bloch published a theory of the movement of electrons through atomic lattices in 1928. In 1930, B. Gudden stated that conductivity in semiconductors was due to minor concentrations of impurities. By 1931, the band theory of conduction had been established by Alan Herries Wilson and the concept of band gaps had been developed. Walter H. Schottky and Nevill Francis Mott developed models of the potential barrier and of the characteristics of a metal–semiconductor junction. By 1938, Boris Davydov had developed a theory of the copper-oxide rectifier, identifying the effect of the p–n junction and the importance of minority carriers and surface states.[29]

Are we seeing a pattern yet?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cobalt#History

Quote
Swedish chemist Georg Brandt (1694–1768) is credited with discovering cobalt circa 1735, showing it to be a previously unknown element, distinct from bismuth and other traditional metals. Brandt called it a new "semi-metal".[31][32]

Insanity is letting Western civilization do what it wants over and over again and expecting different results:

If something is causing a problem, you have stop doing that thing altogether, not just keep doing it in a slightly modified way. Whatever a car is powered by, they are still cars (ie. extra mass that has no reason to be moved around merely in order to move a smaller mass around):

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-right/western-civilization-is-a-health-hazard/msg6166/#msg6166

Similarly, turning Westerners atheist will not cause them to behave differently than they used to behave when they were theist. They are still Westerners (ie. extra hubris that has no reason to be allowed to constantly initiate violence on everything else):

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-false-left/progressive-yahwism/

Want to really solve the problem? The locals in the video need to stop mining ASAP and instead move to Western countries:

Once there, they must help us kill Western civilization. Preferably starting with:

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/what-your-barbecue-is-doing-to-the-environment...


While leaders of the world are stressing the urgent need to fight climate change by cutting down carbon emissions, no one seems to have called attention to the high level of carbon emission resulting from the recreational activity of barbecue so popular in the West. Apparently, the bulk of charcoal produced in Nigeria is exported to European countries while Paraguay's to the US and Canada. In China, however, barbecue has been banned since 2013.

The yearly daylight saving time recently ended in the US. Only Western Civilization could make something so needlessly complicated.

Quote
Industrialized societies usually follow a clock-based schedule for daily activities that do not change throughout the course of the year. The time of day that individuals begin and end work or school, and the coordination of mass transit, for example, usually remain constant year-round. In contrast, an agrarian society's daily routines for work and personal conduct are more likely governed by the length of daylight hours[4][5] and by solar time, which change seasonally because of the Earth's axial tilt. North and south of the tropics, daylight lasts longer in summer and shorter in winter, with the effect becoming greater the further one moves away from the tropics.

By synchronously resetting all clocks in a region to one hour ahead of standard time, individuals who follow a clock-based schedule will wake an hour earlier than they would have otherwise; they will begin and complete daily work routines an hour earlier, and they will have available to them an extra hour of daylight after their workday activities.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time


Instead of just...starting the work day earlier...Western Civilization changes noon on the clock to one hour ahead of actual solar noon, disrupting people's circadian rhythms and leading to many health problems on the actual day where one hour of time is lost:
Quote
Research shows a 24 percent jump in the number of heart attacks occurring the Monday after we “spring forward” for daylight saving time compared with other Mondays throughout the year.

That lost hour of sleep may play a bigger, perhaps more dangerous role in our body’s natural rhythm, according to a 2014 study led by the University of Michigan Frankel Cardiovascular Center.

Although researchers can’t say precisely what is driving this rise in heart attacks, they have a theory.

The reason more heart attacks happen on Monday mornings could be attributed to several factors, including the stress of starting a new workweek and inherent changes in our sleep-wake cycle. Previous studies have linked poor or insufficient sleep with heart disease.
https://healthblog.uofmhealth.org/heart-health/why-daylight-saving-time-could-increase-your-heart-attack-risk


To solve these health risks? Western Civilization wants to have permanent daylight savings time. Instead of just waking up an hour earlier, Westerners think it is more practical to permanently disconnect solar noon with noon on the clock. Wtf.
Quote
A move to permanent daylight saving time (staying on summer hours all year with no time shifts) is sometimes advocated and is currently implemented in some jurisdictions such as Argentina, Belarus,[145] Iceland, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco,[45] Namibia, Saskatchewan, Singapore, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Yukon.
[...]
Advocates cite the same advantages as normal DST without the problems associated with the twice yearly time shifts. However, many remain unconvinced of the benefits, citing the same problems and the relatively late sunrises, particularly in winter, that year-round DST entails.[9]
[...]
Since daylight saving time creates the illusion of the sun rising and setting one hour later on the clock, but does not add any additional daylight, the already later sunrise times under standard time are pushed an hour later on the clock with daylight saving time. Late sunrise times can become unpopular in the winter months which essentially forces workers and schoolchildren to begin the day in darkness. In 1974 following the enactment of the Emergency Daylight Saving Time Act in the United States, there were complaints of children going to school in the dark and working people commuting and starting their work day in pitch darkness during the winter months.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time#Permanent_daylight_saving_time

Which cultural movement messed up timekeeping? Ah yes, the Renaissance:
Quote
Ancient civilizations adjusted daily schedules to the sun more flexibly than DST does, often dividing daylight into 12 hours regardless of daytime, so that each daylight hour became progressively longer during spring and shorter during autumn.[15] For example, the Romans kept time with water clocks that had different scales for different months of the year; at Rome's latitude, the third hour from sunrise (hora tertia) started at 09:02 solar time and lasted 44 minutes at the winter solstice, but at the summer solstice it started at 06:58 and lasted 75 minutes.[16] From the 14th century onwards, equal-length civil hours supplanted unequal ones, so civil time no longer varied by season.



Dark gray = never used DST, light gray = stopped using DST.

About DST, see also:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-right/western-civilization-is-a-health-hazard/msg4851/#msg4851

Healthwise, DST is basically stationary jetlag. (Jetlag as a result of excessively fast travelling can also be blamed on Western civilization for normalizing fast travel that crosses hours' worth of time zones within a single day.)

It is surprising to see that Iran, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan still use daylight saving time.

Throwing Good Money After Bad Car Infrastructure - Wonderland Road
Quote
My hometown is a typical sprawling suburban city that is dealing with the the results of decades of car-centric development. The city was prepared to spend over $200 million to widen a short 8 kilometer stretch of stroad; their largest infrastructure project of all time.

But this project was recently cancelled, due to concerns about climate change. Will this be a turning point in car-dependency, or just a speed bump on the way to transforming "Forest City" into "Asphalt City"?

It was supposed to improve Cleveland’s image and show the world a city on the rise. But 35 years ago Monday, a monumental event quickly turned disastrous, causing multiple accidents and hampering the search for two missing fishermen in Lake Erie.
[...]
It took months of planning and thousands of volunteers to inflate the 1.5 million balloons that were to be released. They were held in place by a specially constructed netting structure.

At that time, the thinking about environmental impact was different, and people thought the balloons would reach an altitude where they popped and disintegrated. The year before, in 1985, Disneyland had launched 1 million balloons to honor Walt Disney on what would’ve been his 84th birthday.
[...]
“They wanted to put Cleveland into the Guinness Book of World Records, they wanted to do something bigger and better than anybody else,” said John Grabowski, chief historian at the Western Reserve Historical Society and Case Western Reserve University history professor.
[...]
The 1.5 million colorful balloons began plummeting back down to the ground.

“We drove down the Shoreway, and it was like a multi-colored river down the road. Motorists were running into each other, running into fences,” Zurcher said. “Then Burke Lakefront Airport was even more of a mess. The runway was covered with balloons.”

The airport and Shoreway both had to be temporarily shut down, and he said a bulldozer was brought in to help clear the balloons.
[...]
Severe storms the night before had caused significant damage across Northeast Ohio and capsized a boat. It washed ashore the morning of the launch, but the two fishermen were still missing.

The U.S. Coast Guard was searching for the men by helicopter and by boat when the balloons began raining down on them. That forced the pilot to land and made it virtually impossible to recover the men.

“I caught the guy flying the Coast Guard helicopter, and he said it was like flying through an asteroid belt. You just couldn’t see,” Zurcher said. “And the balloons on the water looked like heads, and the men weren’t found until several days after the balloons.”

This London skyscraper can melt cars and set buildings on fire

Local shopkeepers have complained about carpets catching fire and smoldering front doors. A restaurant owner told London news site City A.M. that slate tiles on his doorstep had shattered in the heat.

The building — designed by internationally renowned architect Rafael Viñoly — is a dramatic edifice with curved exterior walls. Built at 20 Fenchurch Street in London's financial center, the 38-story skyscraper is known locally as "the Walkie-Talkie" for its unusual shape.

But that curvilinear shape is exactly what's causing the problem: The south-facing exterior wall is covered in reflective glass, and because it's concave, it focuses the sun's rays onto a small area, not unlike the way a magnifying glass directs sunbeams onto a superhot pinpoint of light.

Vegas Hotel Pool 'Death Ray' Burns Tourists

Guests at the new Vdara hotel have been complaining that because of an architectural flaw on the glass skyscraper, the sun's rays are being magnified and reflected onto an area of the pool, causing severe burns. There have been reports that even plastic has melted from the heat.

Bill Pintas almost lost some hair from his experience with the hot spot.

After a recent swim in the pool just after noon, he went back to his lounge chair.

"I'm sitting there in the chair and all of the sudden my hair and the top of my head are burning," Pintas told ABC News. "I'm rubbing my head and it felt like a chemical burn. I couldn't imagine what it could be."
[...]
Then Pintas learned he wasn't the first person to experience the magnified sunlight. At the bar, he explained the intense heat to some employees.

"They're kind of giggling and say: 'Yeah, we know. We call it the death ray,'" Pintas recalled.

Microplastics revealed in the placentas of unborn babies

Health impact is unknown but scientists say particles may cause long-term damage to foetuses
[...]
Microplastic particles have been revealed in the placentas of unborn babies for the first time, which the researchers said was “a matter of great concern”.

The health impact of microplastics in the body is as yet unknown. But the scientists said they could carry chemicals that could cause long-term damage or upset the foetus’s developing immune system. The particles are likely to have been consumed or breathed in by the mothers.
[...]
The microplastics were mostly 10 microns in size (0.01mm), meaning they are small enough to be carried in the bloodstream. The particles may have entered the babies’ bodies, but the researchers were unable to assess this.
[...]
Microplastics pollution has reached every part of the planet, from the summit of Mount Everest to the deepest oceans. People are already known to consume the tiny particles via food and water, and to breathe them in.
[...]
Elizabeth Salter Green, at the chemicals charity Chem Trust, said: “Babies are being born pre-polluted. The study was very small but nevertheless flags a very worrying concern.”

A separate recent study showed that nanoparticles of plastic inhaled by pregnant laboratory rats were detected in the liver, lungs, heart, kidney, and brain of their foetuses.

This is also why statism is so important. Only through the state's power is there any hope of fixing this.
