Scientists Warning — Update
While pursuing his climate work, Stuart is continuing his healing journey at home in Hawaii. He had an image test done in Hawaii last week and will need to have another MRI. He has also restarted Vitamin C therapy and will undergo additional medical procedures at the end of the month. The images taken will be assessed by medical staff at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. We wish Stuart all the best on his path to recovery.
Lest we forget in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, climate change is still happening, and accelerating. It’s been predicted for many years that increased occurrence and rapid spread of pandemics would be one of the many results of climate change. This one may not have been that, but it’s a taste of things to come.
We are being given a ‘wake-up call’. Will we hear it? Will we heed it? Ordinary people seem to be ‘getting it’, but governments, and their primary clients (banks and large corporations) are trying to get us back to Business As Usual, with its destructive ‘growth economic’ system that was put in place by bankers a century ago, and still is manipulated to benefit the wealthy at the expense of the Earth and human survival.
There is also, a retraction pertaining to last week’s news letter: “…and the current Coronavirus (bird flu) of 2020…” It was incorrect to say “bird flu.”
As we go through lockdowns and the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, we must be ever mindful of the sustainability and ecological challenges we face. Food security will be a key issue going forward.
