TMI 07/21/2023 – Climate Change is Not a Debate: the Climate HAS Changed, The CDC Changed How It Calculates “Excess Deaths” to Downplay COVID, Interest Payments Impoverish Billions of People and more

We no longer need to think of the Climate Crisis as something to dread in the future – it is here, now. From heat-based records on land and in the ocean to flooding in Vermont and Kentucky, there is simply no denying that it is upon us – now if only THAT was enough to ensure real action: we discuss.

Then, the CDC has been telling us that “excess deaths”, a key measure in how bad the COVID pandemic is, has dropped tremendously. The thing is, the way they measure those deaths changed, giving the illusion that less people are dying from COVID than actually are. Finally, we talk about how dozens of nations around the world owe so much on loans they had to take out to pay for climate- and COVID-mitigating measures, that paying the INTEREST on them alone makes it so they can’t afford education and health measures for their people.
