House Expands Inquiry Into Climate Disinformation

The House Oversight Committee has widened its inquiry into the oil and gas industry’s role in spreading disinformation about the role of fossil fuels in causing global warming, calling on top executives from Exxon Mobil, Chevron, BP and Royal Dutch Shell, as well as the lobby groups American Petroleum Institute and the United States Chamber of Commerce, to testify before Congress next month.

Most Southern Republicans Support Seceding

A new YouGov survey conducted on behalf of a democracy watchdog group finds that 66% of Republicans living in the South say they’d support seceding from the United States to join a union with other Southern states.
Secession is actually gaining support among Southern Republicans: back in January and February, 50% said they’d support such a proposal.

Australia Bets on Lasting American Power in Asia

When Scott Morrison became Australia’s prime minister three years ago, he insisted that the country could maintain close ties with China, its largest trading partner, while working with the United States, its main security ally.
Said Morrison: “Australia doesn’t have to choose.”
On Thursday, Australia effectively chose. Following years of sharply deteriorating relations with Beijing, Australia announced a new defense agreement in which the United States and Britain would help it deploy nuclear-powered submarines, a major advance in Australian military strength.

CDC.GOV confirmed the updated age-specific death rates: 0-19 years old, 0.003%; 20-49 years old, 0.02%; 50-69 years, 0.5%; and 70 years old or older, 6.4%.

Note the massive leap there for the 70+ age group.

Close to 91% of ALL reported COVIDZ deaths are in the 70+ age group.

If anyone is forced to get treatment, it should be that group.

Saying "it's an average of 1% risk" is extremely misleading.



You mention nuclear waste, we already have a solution for this.
