“Herd Immunity is another name for mass murder”

Dr. William Haseltine, who is best known for his groundbreaking work on HIV/AIDS and the human genome, issued a strict warning Wednesday that using herd immunity to defeat coronavirus could result in millions of American deaths.

Herd immunity is another word for mass murder,” the former Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health said on CNN’s’ “New Day.” “I’m extremely concerned that the president is being advised by people who speak of herd immunity.”

If the virus is allowed to grow, unchecked, in hopes of wearing itself out, “we are looking at two to six million Americans dead, not just this year, but every year,” Haseltine added. “The reason for that is that there is no such thing as herd immunity.”…

“This is an unmitigated disaster for our country to have people at the highest levels of our government countermanding our best public health officials,” Haseltine said. “We know this epidemic can be put under control, other countries have done it. We are doing the opposite.”

The corrupt political hack-in-chief sitting in the White House, right now, is perfectly willing to let millions die on the scale of the worst plagues in history to benefit corporate profits. A plan which ceases to exist as you run out of people to run American industries.

Every home in the UK could get their electricity from wind-power within this decade

In a speech Tuesday (Oct 6th), Prime Minister Boris Johnson pledged that the United Kingdom would generate enough electricity from offshore wind to power every UK home within a decade.

The UK government also unveiled a new target for floating offshore wind to deliver 1 Gigawatt of energy by 2030. That’s more than 15 times as much power as floating offshore wind currently generates worldwide, it said. The government promised £160 million ($207 million) to upgrade ports and infrastructure…

Britain must “build back greener” from the coronavirus pandemic in order to accelerate progress towards a legally binding target to reach net zero emissions by 2050, Johnson said…

While I’m not convinced Boris Johnson and his Tories are best capable of leading this task, he’s got the science and technology right for a change. Unlike his peers here in the GOUSA. At least the Left and Right in Great Britain appear capable of uniting on a plan to make the switch to renewables for generating electricity…and leave “stupid and spooky” behind.

Mama llama trauma

Trooper Levi Macy responded to a call in Eastern Oregon about a wayward llama on a highway onramp…”So, there I was minding my own business when I got a call from OSP Dispatch, telling me that there was a llama, yes a llama, in the road on the I-84 onramp at milepost 304 eastbound. I got there and sure enough a displeased mama llama was laying on the onramp. The owner was taking three llamas from Washington to Utah in the bed of a 1500 Dodge short bed pickup. The truck had a homemade stock rack that didn’t quiet hold the three 🦙 🦙 🦙 (while it took) an uphill corner. Fortunately enough for the llama and myself, the speeds were slow, and traffic was minimal.

“The owner got about a mile down the road before he realized his mama llama was missing out of the back of the truck. But of course, when he stopped his truck, the other two llamas bailed out, running free on the interstate. The owner ran back and gave me the rope to hook to mama llama’s harness. Mama llama refused to get up as you could see by her displeased facial expression … so I told (the owner) that I would llama sit, while he wrangled up the others …”

And so it goes on [what some thought was going to be] a slow day in Eastern Oregon.
