    Why don’t you come out clearly and state that the best thing an individual can do is to stop eating animal products. This reduces the futures pandemic risk as well as climate change.

Truth be told humanity needs some culling and that is what the planet is doing… BTW: first Steven Colbert and now John Oliver talking to cartoons? Are we back in the 80s…?

    Tuberculosis is a global pandemic such as the world has never seen. It has been for decades. Just last year 10 million cases were reported and 1.5 million died from it. ONE AND A HALF MILLION! That’s how many people die from it each year! EACH YEAR! It is the “most contagious disease in the history of mankind.” . It is spread from infected people talking, singing, laughing, sneezing, coughing or spitting. It is the most contagious pandemic in world history and has killed tens of million of people worldwide and is going on stronger than ever. . So, why were/are there no tuberculosis pandemic response demands from the WHO, CDC, governments, doctors, or the UN to wear masks, washing your hands? Where are the food shortages, toilet paper shortages, disinfectant shortages due to the tuberculosis pandemic? Where are the job losses, the shut downs, the layoffs because of tuberculosis pandemic? The quarantines, the social distancing because of tuberculosis? Tuberculosis has ALWAYS made flu-viruses like Covid-19 look like the sniffles. So what’s the big to do about Covid-19? New statistics are proving that even the elderly are not as high a risk as previously touted. . There are no knee-jerk reactions to the tuberculosis pandemic as with Covid -19 because masks and all of the above CANNOT STOP IT! In fact, herd mentality history indicates that those ‘preventative measures’ make it much worse. . Covid-19 is real but the toxicity is immensely exaggerated and the mortality rates are purposefully inflated for the sake of monetary greed within the medical profession and for the benefit of liberal politicians and their power grab. . For once, just once, people need to do their own research. There's an elephant in the room and it's called 'tuberculosis', and it’s exposing the lies about Covid.

    Lesson: Leave other species alone. Easy peasy, but the majority of humans are stupid just can't seem to do it. Eat plants, stick to dogs and cats for companions, and leave the forests alone. It's not that hard, millions of people do it. Stop whining and making excuses and do it.

    Because Humans are lazy stupid fucs, the next pandemic will occur of course. BUT, a great way to FIX the world's problems is to FIX the Humans. How? Simple arithmetic!!!

The Earth will survive, the Humans with fuc themselves to death!!

    CountryLuver001Kun oldin

    And this is why we shouldn't be allowing any debate or questions in the task of saving our planet. Put the laws in place and NEVER allow people to abolish them. Earth does not care about you, your family, your fame, your money, your wants or dreams. You are nothing in the grand scheme of things and so your opinion on saving the ONLY home we have is not worth much. But of course, those with money don't care and know they won't be alive long enough to face the consequences of their greed.
