Gladys, Climate Change And Why Some Days Everything Is So Obvious… – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Like I said, it’s obvious really. I once said that when I first bought a home, I one day hoped to live in a million dollar property. Little did I realise that it would happen without me moving. I also imagined that it would be a beachfront property. Given the way climate change action is happening, that might also happen without me moving, too

Dying Trump Supporter's Last Words: 'Please Go Get Vaccinated...This Is Nothing Nice'

Morrison’s advice “It’s up to you”

Except that was never going to happen. A brief perusal of Brad ‘Bradster’ Vinnard’s Facebook page shows a deep antipathy towards COVID vaccines, a love of Trump and other right-wing causes, and his love of Harleys. His Facebook comments were the usual hodgepodge of extremism and conspiracy theory, that the vaccines were unsafe, unproven, no worse than the flu, a means for government control, etc. Just the usual paranoid delusion so often seen by followers of Donald Trump.

What Will It Take For Republicans To Get Vaccinated? | Washington Monthly

Unless we want to engage in a bloody and bitter divorce, we have to solve this problem together. And there’s no reason for the responsibly vaccinated to continue to have to put themselves and their kids at risk to mollycoddle conservative snowflakes who place their identitarian culture war and Fox News obsession over the value of life. We, too, deserve to be able to go back to living normal lives at concerts and restaurants unmasked without fear of infection by a conservative who never bothered to make any sacrifices. Whatever we have to do to get there, we should do.

Republican Self-genocide — and Darwin | The Smirking Chimp

Even more crucial to the Republican campaign of killing their own people rather unsoftly are the right’s media personalities. A preppy Fox News host says “maybe [the vaccine] doesn’t work and they’re simply not telling you that.” A Newsmax host agrees with the Wisconsin senator, saying “I feel like a vaccination in a weird way is just generally kind of going against nature.”

Tucker Carlson Uses Unverified Vaccine Reporting System To Scare Viewers

Tucker Carlson once again proves he’s one of the most irresponsible people polluting our airwaves. As John noted here, Carlson hasn’t revealed his own vaccination status, but he sure is doing everything he can to make sure his viewers are scared to death of the coronavirus vaccines, and that we never get to herd immunity with all of the Republican, Fox-watching anti-vaxxers out there. Here he is on this Thursday’s show, using the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS, which, as Matthew Chapman at Raw Story explained, “is not actually a database of vaccine injuries; it’s only a list of medical events reported as happening after a vaccine was administered, with no verification that the vaccine caused the event or even that the event was real.”

The big barriers to global vaccination: patent rights, national self-interest and the wealth gap

Disappointingly, rich countries today behave as though they will reach 100% vaccination rates before they give away a single dose, with many having bought well in excess of what is needed for 100% coverage.
