Why the Bill Gates global health empire promises more empire and less public health

Since shortly after its founding, the foundation has owned stakes in several drug companies. A recent investigation by The Nation revealed that the Gates Foundation currently holds corporate stocks and bonds in drug companies like Merck, GSK, Eli Lilly, Pfizer, Novartis, and Sanofi.
I found this article in #Techrights. It's worth sharing imho.

Influential COVID-19 model forecasts nearly 170,000 deaths in US by Oct 1

https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/202006/12/WS5ee2d56ca310834817252840.html

WASHINGTON - An influential COVID-19 model produced by the #University of #Washington has revised its projections, forecasting nearly 170,000 COVID-19 deaths in the United States by Oct 1.

The model, from the university's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), projected 169,890 cumulative #COVID-19 deaths in the country by Oct 1, with a range of 133,201 to 290,222.

The projections painted a grim picture of what could come when summer turns to fall, with a steep rise in daily deaths forecast in September.

The Tree Army


A new "Tree Army" against #unemployment and #global-warming ? The economic #crisis caused by #Covid-19 has put millions of Americans out of work. The creation of a Tree Army, successfully experimented in the 1930s, could be a solution to recreate #employment.

The Civilian Conservation Corps then gave priority to untrained men under 25 years of age. These men were provided with lodging, food and $30 per month (a salary equivalent to $588 today). Between 1933 and 1942, the project supported three million participants, planted three billion #trees and established - or rehabilitated - 700 national #parks.
 
La plata que los #capitalistas mendigan a los #Estados por las "grandes pérdidas", es en realidad inversión en material sanitario para el control de las personas y de sus acreedores. Así fue que resultaron todos los guardias de cadenas de supermercados con termómetros digitales, y que se "abrió la oferta" de basura con alcohol y variedad para limpieza. La #crisis les anima a acumular más.

So, to white people who care about maintaining a habitable planet, I need you to become actively anti-racist. I need you to understand that our racial inequality crisis is intertwined with our climate #crisis. If we don’t work on both, we will succeed at neither. I need you to step up. Please.

The Lancet refutes Trump's WHO letter

In response to the letter, the #British journal #Lancet issued a statement on Tuesday calling Trump's mention of the reports as "factually incorrect".

Coronavirus - Bad Preparation And Propaganda Increase The Onsetting Panic


"The current public reaction to the #coronavirus #pandemic confuses even propaganda specialists:
lake News @blakehounshell - 1:19 UTC · 6 Mar 2020
I was looking at this timeline of the H1N1 pandemic put out by the CDC, and it’s way worse than I remembered. I don’t recall the same daily drumbeat of coverage but that was a different news environment. Or was I just not paying close attention?
The current #Covid-19 #panic was caused by seven weeks of daily #anti-China #propaganda as the #international #media abused the #crisis to bash Chinese officials, citizens and their culture. #H1N1 originated in the #US which utterly failed to contain it. It was therefore not propagandized.

#China continues with its excellent efforts to get the epidemic under control."

As the #financial world hits another #crisis over #coronavirus, it's amusing to read, again, side by side headlines of "danger of economic slowdown" and "climate change will put us all at risk".

A las ratitas inconformes con carro de papi o "ancaps":

Una revisión socialista a la crítica (neoliberal) al neoliberalismo

"En síntesis, ni en sus orígenes, ni en el siglo XX, ni en los casos de desarrollos capitalistas más llamativos que conocemos, tenemos ese capitalismo de mercados competitivos y de libre concurrencia que la crítica neoliberal al neoliberalismo supone posible y deseable. Más bien la libre competencia genera, endógenamente, la centralización del capital y la competencia monopolística. El punto central, así visto, es que no se trata dos modelos diferentes de capitalismo, sino que el capitalismo oligopólico ‘de amigos’ es el resultado natural de la competencia capitalista misma."

A documentary that will never let you see plastic the same way again


https://qz.com/1764780/the-story-of-plastic-changes-the-way-we-think-about-consumption/
The Story of Plastic, directed by Deia Schlosberg and produced by Stiv Wilson, is a relentless pile-on of images and factoids that build on each other, slowly forming the contours of the full scope of havoc wreaked by a single 60-year-old industry. It is the best and clearest guide through the plastic supply chain I’ve seen yet, which also means it’s the best tool to understand the full lifecycle of a material we touch and use every day.

#ClimateCrisis ‘affecting quality of life and fuelling discontent’


The #climate #crisis, as well as persistently high inequalities, and rising levels of #food #insecurity and #undernourishment, is affecting the quality of life in many societies and fuelling discontent, the #UN warned on Thursday, on the publication of the 2020 World Economic Situation Report (#WESP).

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and its humanitarian partners remain extremely concerned for the safety and security of hundreds of thousands of civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s eastern Beni Territory, after deadly violence and mass protests have cut off humanitarian access to the troubled region.

Lessons To Learn From The Coup In Bolivia


"The coup in Bolivia is devastating for the majority of the people in that country. Are their lessons to learn from it?

Andrea Lobo writes writes at WSWS:
Bolivian president #Evo #Morales of the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party was forced to resign Sunday evening by the Bolivian #military in a #coup backed by the #United #States. Last night, Morales tweeted that he is “leaving for Mexico” after that country agreed to grant him asylum.

After three weeks of protests following the disputed October 20 presidential elections, the imperialist powers and their Bolivian client elite have overthrown the government of Morales. In the context of a deepening #crisis of #global #capitalism and a resurgence of the class struggle internationally, including recent mass strikes among miners and doctors in #Bolivia, the ruling class lost confidence that Morales and the #MAS apparatus can continue to suppress social opposition".

The Literal Gaslighting That Helps #America Avoid Acting on the #Climate #Crisis


source: https://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/the-literal-gaslighting-that-helps-america-avoid-acting-on-the-climate
Burning gas produces less carbon dioxide than burning coal. But #carbon #dioxide is not the only #greenhouse #gas. The second most important contributor to climate change is methane—CH4. And, when you frack the countryside for natural gas to burn in #power plants, lots of methane #leaks out at every stage of the process, from drilling to combustion. So: less carbon dioxide, more #methane.
