    I'll never understand how saving the world would "cost money" like what??? Where does the money go? Why do we lose it? Dont we WANT to save the world? So just fucking do it. Maybe I'm just stupid... but I really don't get that.

    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. You just curtly discount it. Why don’t and your show crew set a good example and stop eating animals protein yourselves?

    How is any of that news to anyone? Was I the only one who seen the movie Outbreak? Heck even Ghost had a joke about contagion in the second scene of the movie! Not to mention all the actual outbreaks we had in the past 10 years alone! 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…? Bring back the rad toys and cool cartoon syndications then!

    "The most effective way would be to close down all wildlife markets, ban factory farming and halt deforestation" are good ideas, let's do that. What's the hold up? "Stopping eating meat altogether and shutting down all state fairs" is going too far. It's definitely the first 3 that will reduce the risk of pandemics 99%.

    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.

    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.

      @punkinhoot All of that is BS and I'm just gonna suggest you do some research if you wanna present a good faith argument. But, to indulge you a little bit, I'd like to ask where those "essential" fatty acids come from because last time I checked, salmon don't have the enzyme in their metabolism to desaturate fatty acids at the ω terminal position. Last time I checked, broccoli does. So does the algae that the salmon eat. So I'm gonna skip out on the antibiotics they douse wild salmon with since, as you can guess, the regulations aren't there for the consumers.

    2. punkinhoot
      Dag sedan

      Vegan diets can be very low in those "essential fatty acids," found in eggs and fish. And a lot of "foods" labelled "vegan" are pretty disgusting/disturbing if you read the ingredients. Is like expecting words like "environmentally friendly," or "organic" to mean something either. If you prefer hydroponically grown vegetables, and expect they are free of chemicals and as nutritious as garden grown, you can do that. Just hope the water, either growth method, is free of giardia, I guess.
