Quote
Russian investigators said Saturday they were looking into “a possible ecological catastrophe” in the eastern Kamchatka region, after scores of dead sea creatures washed up in one of it bays and surfers reported burns to their eyes and throats.

Images of dead seals, octopi, starfish and urchins on the Khalaktyrsky Beach in the Avacha Bay have been shared on social media for several days.

Surfers in the area have also complained that the sea had an unnatural smell and color.
...
Russia’s investigative committee said in a statement Saturday that it had sent a team to look into the mass death of marine mammals in the area and "a possible ecological catastrophe."

The committee said there had been reports of increased concentrations of oil products and phenols "from an unidentified source in the sea coastal waters."

So, want to guess which civilization is responsible for phenols?

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

Quote
Phenol was discovered in 1834 by Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, who extracted it (in impure form) from coal tar.[42] Runge called phenol "Karbolsäure" (coal-oil-acid, carbolic acid). Coal tar remained the primary source until the development of the petrochemical industry. In 1841, the French chemist Auguste Laurent obtained phenol in pure form.[43]

In 1836, Auguste Laurent coined the name "phène" for benzene;[44] this is the root of the word "phenol" and "phenyl". In 1843, French chemist Charles Gerhardt coined the name "phénol".[45]
...
The toxic effect of phenol on the central nervous system, discussed below, causes sudden collapse and loss of consciousness in both humans and animals; a state of cramping precedes these symptoms because of the motor activity controlled by the central nervous system.[50]
...
Phenol and its vapors are corrosive to the eyes, the skin, and the respiratory tract.[61] Its corrosive effect on skin and mucous membranes is due to a protein-degenerating effect.[50] Repeated or prolonged skin contact with phenol may cause dermatitis, or even second and third-degree burns.[62] Inhalation of phenol vapor may cause lung edema.[61] The substance may cause harmful effects on the central nervous system and heart, resulting in dysrhythmia, seizures, and coma.[63] The kidneys may be affected as well. Long-term or repeated exposure of the substance may have harmful effects on the liver and kidneys.[64] There is no evidence that phenol causes cancer in humans.[65] Besides its hydrophobic effects, another mechanism for the toxicity of phenol may be the formation of phenoxyl radicals.[66]

Since phenol is absorbed through the skin relatively quickly, systemic poisoning can occur in addition to the local caustic burns.[50] Resorptive poisoning by a large quantity of phenol can occur even with only a small area of skin, rapidly leading to paralysis of the central nervous system and a severe drop in body temperature. The LD50 for oral toxicity is less than 500 mg/kg for dogs, rabbits, or mice; the minimum lethal human dose was cited as 140 mg/kg.[50] The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states the fatal dose for ingestion of phenol is from 1 to 32 g.[67]

Why is it that the anti-mask protests seem to occur exclusively in Western countries?

Look how many westerners have faith in Trump up until his diagnosis:

Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis inspired almost a quarter more Americans to wear a mask, a new poll finds
Quote
One in every five Americans recently polled say they're more likely to wear a mask now that President Donald Trump has tested positive for Covid-19.
About 21% of respondents in a new poll by Axios-Ipsos said they are now more likely to wear a face covering and maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from others.
For the rest, however, the news hasn't changed their behaviors and views.
These latest poll findings come from a survey of 405 adults in the United States, conducted between Friday and Monday in the wake of President Trump's diagnosis.

Survey responses show that 77% of adults said there has been "no change" in their likelihood to wear a mask or physically distance following news about the President testing positive, and 2% said they are less likely. The survey also found that 12% of respondents said they are more likely to wear gloves now, compared with 85% who said there has been "no change" in their likelihood to wear gloves, and 3% said they are less likely.

seven in 10 said that thinking about resuming normal activities made them feel anxious.

^ This is the sane attitude. In the West it is the opposite: lockdowns make people feel anxious.

But back to oil spills:

https://us.yahoo.com/finance/news/u-oil-well-leaked-gases-155407224.html

Quote
An oil well site in the Permian Basin owned by a bankrupt shale producer has spewed polluting gases into the atmosphere for 10 months, despite being investigated by Texas regulators, according to an environmental group.

Infrared video footage collected during multiple visits from November 2019 through September show “continuous intense and significant” emissions from faulty valves and tank hatches at MDC Energy LLC’s Pick Pocket location in West Texas, Earthworks said in a letter to two state regulatory agencies on Thursday. The group called on the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the Texas Railroad Commission to rescind permits for MDC.

The Ozone Depletion Phenomenon (1996)
Chapter: The Ozone Depletion Phenomenon

Quote
Although, two decades ago, most scientists would have scoffed at the notion that industrial chemicals could destroy ozone high up in the atmosphere, researchers now know that chlorine creates the hole by devouring ozone molecules. Years of study on the ground, in aircraft, and from satellites has conclusively identified the source of the chlorine: human-made chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that have been used in spray cans, foam packaging, and refrigeration materials.

So, which civilization invented tritium? Answer: the same one that invented all the other stuff that never should have existed.

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

Quote
Tritium was first detected in 1934 by Ernest Rutherford, Mark Oliphant, and Paul Harteck after bombarding deuterium with deuterons (a proton and neutron, comprising a deuterium nucleus). Deuterium is another isotope of hydrogen.[2][3] However, their experiment could not isolate tritium, which was later accomplished by Luis Alvarez and Robert Cornog, who also realized tritium's radioactivity.[4][5]

At this point, how can anyone still be on the fence about whether or not Western civilization needs to die?

Area burned in Indonesia fires ‘greater than the Netherlands’
Quote
Greenpeace slams Indonesia for lack of action against the palm oil sector as vast areas of forests burned in five years.
Quote
Tropical forest and peatland areas bigger than the Netherlands have burned in Indonesia in the past five years, Greenpeace has said, lambasting President Joko Widodo’s government for allowing the pulpwood and palm oil sector to act with impunity despite bearing “considerable responsibility” for the fire crisis.

In a new report on Thursday, the prominent environmental group said some 4.4 million hectares (9.9 million acres) of land have burned in Indonesia between 2015 and 2019.

History

Oil palms (Elaeis guineensis)

Humans used oil palms as far back as 5,000 years. In the late 1800s, archaeologists discovered a substance that they concluded was originally palm oil in a tomb at Abydos dating back to 3,000 BCE.[5] It is believed that traders brought oil palm to Egypt.[citation needed]

Palm oil from E. guineensis has long been recognized in West and Central African countries, and is widely used as a cooking oil. European merchants trading with West Africa occasionally purchased palm oil for use as a cooking oil in Europe.

Palm oil became a highly sought-after commodity by British traders for use as an industrial lubricant for machinery during Britain's Industrial Revolution.[6]

Palm oil formed the basis of soap products, such as Lever Brothers' (now Unilever) "Sunlight" soap, and the American Palmolive brand.[7]

By around 1870, palm oil constituted the primary export of some West African countries, although this was overtaken by cocoa in the 1880s with the introduction of colonial European cocoa plantations.[8][9]

Same questions as always:

1) Which civilization introduced these chemicals into existence?

2) If Western civilization hadn't done so, would any other civilization in the world have done so?

3) Therefore, which civilization must die?

The power of the pharmaceutical companies | DW Documentary
Quote
How much is a human life worth? An innovative cancer therapy promises to save lives. But it is extremely expensive. Will the insurance companies pay for it? What is the manufacturer's return on investment? And do lobbyists drive up prices?

In 2018, the Kymriah gene therapy was approved in Europe. Immune cells are taken from the patient, genetically reprogrammed into cancer killer cells and returned to the patient as an infusion. The results of the Kymriah study only cover a period of 18 months. In 40 percent of patients, lymph gland cancer does not return during this time. It is not clear whether Kymriah has a long-term effect. The Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis offers the new therapy - it costs 370,000 Swiss francs per patient. Health insurance companies are not usually prepared to pay that much and are complaining about a lack of transparency.

But the killer cells were not invented in the Novartis laboratories, but at a US university. When Professor Carl June started his research almost 30 years ago, no pharmaceutical company was interested. It was only thanks to funding from tax money and donations that he was able to develop Kymriah at all. After a story went around the world about a girl with leukemia whose cancer disappeared thanks to Kymriah, the pharmaceutical company contacted Novartis and secured exclusive marketing rights. To launch Kymriah on the market, Novartis funded the necessary clinical trials. It's not an isolated incident: Over 60% of newly approved medicines in the US are developed by small biotech companies or universities. Pharmaceutical companies today frequently act as capital providers, cooperating with universities or buying up biotech companies.

A paradigm shift has taken place in the pharmaceutical industry: Whereas high drug prices used to be justified by research costs, the industry is now using the value of gained lifetime to argue its case.

How Humans Destroyed 60% of All Wildlife Over Half a Century | NowThis Earth
Quote
Humans have decimated 2/3 of all wildlife since 1970, according to a new report from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). In the same time frame, the human population doubled to 7.4 billion.

'We are driving species extinct,' says WWF Chief Scientist Dr. Rebecca Shaw.

The biggest losses have taken place in Latin America and the Caribbean. The report finds that much of this is due to habitat destruction and species exploitation, where animals are sold as food or pets — further contributing to viruses spreading from animals to humans.

But Dr. Shaw remains optimistic because of action taken by millennials and Gen Z.

'2020 is really the year to act.'

To clarify, species extinction in itself is a good thing. It is initiation of violence against individuals which we oppose. But of course False Leftists do not understand this.

Quote

The real problem is that species extinction is occurring not as part of an overall reduction in number of individuals, but as a side effect of total increase in number of individuals.
