☠️ COVID-19, Ebola, And SARS Outbreaks Were All Unleashed By Humans 
March 27, 2020


Some of the most devastating outbreaks of the modern era can be traced to rapacious development and habitat destruction that brings wild creatures into our domestic spaces.

Story Transcript
This is a rush transcript and may contain errors. It will be updated.

Marc Stiener: I’m Marc Steiner, great to have you all with us on this day. The COVID-19 pandemic has much of the world gripped in fear, entire countries are on lockdown. People are fearful, and rightfully so, of being in contact with each other. For us here, empty shelves in supermarkets, no cars on the highways, empty streets, give you that eerily post apocalyptic feel. Donald Trump labeling this as the Chinese virus and urging us to go back to normalcy, seems unattached to reality. It’s not the Chinese flu, it’s not the other, it’s us. More accurately, it’s our destruction of natural habitats and a climate crisis that is unleashing these viruses among us.

COVID-19 was being blamed on the poor, peaceful pangolin. But this poor anteater that looks like an Armadillo, may be part of the reason the virus spread in China, but it’s our industrial development that’s destroying his habitat that brought them into contact with us. And then some thought it would be a good idea to eat these things. It’s not bats or pangolins, but what our human expansion has done to unleash viruses from Ebola to COVID-19. From the destruction of wild habitats to melting off permafrost and arctic shelves, viruses we’ve never known existed may be coming our way.

And we’re joined by Dr. Sonia Shah. She wrote the book Pandemic: Tracking Contagious from Cholera to Ebola and Beyond. Her newest book is The Next Great Migration: The Beauty and Terror of Life on the Move, that comes out in June. And her latest article published in the nation is Think Exotic Animals Are to Blame for the Corona Virus? Think again. And it’s being wildly read. So welcome Sonia Shah, good to have you with us.

Sonia Shah: Nice to be here.

Marc Stiener: Help us think again, so the connection between habitat loss and climate crisis can get lost in this conversation. And when we try to figure out how to avoid these things now and in the future, talk a bit about that connection.

Sonia Shah: This latest coronavirus is just the last in a series. Well, it won’t be the last, but it’s just the latest in a series of newly emerged pathogens. So over the past like 50, 60 years or so, we’ve had over 300 of these pathogens kind of newly emerge, or re-emerge into places where they’d never been seen before. So, that includes Ebola in West Africa in 2014, it had never been seen in that part of the continent before. It includes Zika in the Americas were it had never been seen before. We have new kinds of tick borne illnesses, new kinds of mosquito borne illnesses, new kinds of antibiotic resistant bacterial pathogens. And the list goes on and on, including of course this latest coronavirus. And about 60% of these new pathogens come from the same place. And that is the bodies of animals. About 70% of them come from the bodies of wild animals.

So, what I tried to do in my work is look at how does a microbe that is generally harmless in its native habitat, in its natural habitat, turn into a pandemic causing pathogens. What are the changes that have to happen for that process to occur? And what I found is that in a lot of cases it’s because humans are invading wildlife habitat. So when we cut down the trees where bats roost… If bats are roosting in some far off jungle, we cut down those trees, well they don’t just go away. They come and fly into our gardens, and backyards, and farms instead. So in all these ways when we destroy wildlife habitat, we force wildlife to come into closer contact to where we live, into little fragments of habitat that we have left for them and that eases all kinds of new kinds of contact between animals and humans.

It increases hunting, trading, uneven casual contact. For example, if you touched a piece of fruit that had some bat saliva on it you could get Ebola virus on your hands, and you put that your hand in your mouth and that’s it. The microbe that lives in the animals bodies has come into the human body, and that’s how the Ebola outbreak of 2014 actually started. And we will probably eventually be able to trace back this current pandemic to some kind of single quote unquote spill over event like that. But the root of it is microbes in animals coming into human bodies because we’re destroying their habitat and bringing them closer into contact with ours.

Marc Stiener: A couple of things here I’ve got to explore. What you mentioned a moment ago, I mean we’re talking about viruses, everything from Ebola to HIV, to Lyme disease in this country are all kind of erupting for the similar reason. And when you look at some of the new science coming out about the potential viruses being unleashed by the melting of permafrost in the Arctic ice shelves. When you add that to the habitat issue we, unfortunately and frighteningly, could just be seeing the beginning of what could erupt over the next decades. Do think that’s alarmist? Do you think that’s real?

Sonia Shah: I don’t know that the melting permafrost is sort of the biggest driver of this, I think invading wildlife habit is a bigger driver because you also have to think about which microbes in animals bodies can easily adapt to human bodies. And so that’s usually microbes that live in other mammals, and it’s usually ones that are more similar to us. So, we get a lot of pathogens from pigs for example, we’ll get fewer from reptiles, right? So, the source matters because each microbe has to kind of adapt. So this is a long process, this doesn’t happen instantly. What happens is there’s repeated contact between humans and the animal reservoir of these microbes. And those repeated contacts allow the microbe to slowly adapt to the human body, right? Because in the beginning it’s an animal microbe, it’s not going to make you sick necessarily, or your immune system’s going to get rid of it.

The pathogen has to adapt. So there has to be repeated contact over time. So we’ve seen these wet markets have existed, for example, which is a source of the SARS pathogen that came out in 2002, 2003, and may be the origins of the current Corona virus. Those wet markets existed for many, many years, but what happened over the past 20 or 30 years is they started to get bigger and bigger because the Chinese economy expanded and people were going farther and farther into wildlife habitat to invade, in places that are farther and farther away, bring animals from lots of different places closer together. So it’s that slow process of expansion and the repeated contact between humans and wildlife that allows these microbes to adapt and become human pathogens.

Marc Stiener: And a broader question here, if human expansion and capitalist development and all kinds of industrial development and development period are part of the causes that underlies these growth of viruses, then how do we think about what to do about that? I mean it’s one thing to talk about how you fight COVID-19 at this moment, and I think that’s one issue. The other issue is how do you prevent the COVID-19s of the future from erupting given the nature of human beings to expand? I mean you wrote in your article that even when you think of the neolithic period that was unleashed there, tuberculosis and measles that are still with us. So, how do we begin to talk as a society, as human beings, as a culture, how to change what we do in order not to have these explosions or is that even possible?

Sonia Shah: It is possible. We’re always going to have infectious diseases, right? I mean we live on a microbial planet and that’s sort of part of the human condition. So we don’t want to sanitize the planet of microbes or anything like that. So the trick is, do you have to have pandemics though? And I think from my research and reporting, the answer is absolutely not. Pandemics are manufactured by human activities. We’ll have infectious disease outbreaks, but we don’t have to have these massive pandemics that travel across the globe and result in what we’re seeing today. And one step towards that is, of course, reducing our destruction of wildlife habitat so that microbes that live in animals bodies stay in their bodies. Reducing the impact of climate change will help too because, of course, we know that a lot of species are moving into new places to escape the effects of the climate crisis. And as they do that, they’re moving into new kinds of contact with human populations also. So that provides other opportunities for these spillovers to happen.

But we also can sort of actively surveil where these spillovers are happening and kind of contain them at their source. We don’t know which microbe will cause the next pandemic, but we do know what the drivers are. We know that it’s things like invasion of wildlife habitat, lots of flight connections, lots of slums, lots of factory farms. These are all drivers of pandemic causing pathogens. So since we know that we can Predict where it’s most likely to happen. So scientists have actually come up with these global hotspot maps. There are places… It’s a map and it just shows where are all the places in the world where it’s most likely that a pandemic causing pathogen could emerge. And in those places we can do active surveillance, really look at all the microbes there. Don’t wait for the outbreak to happen, don’t wait for cases to emerge so people are already getting sick and the microbe’s already spreading exponentially. But actually look for them sort of preventively, to do that kind of active surveillance. And that was actually a project that was going on for about 10 years until the Trump administration killed it last year.

Marc Stiener: You’re talking about Predict and the stuff that CDC was doing that the budget was canceled, that’s what you’re talking about.

Sonia Shah: That’s right.

Marc Stiener: Talk a bit about that.

Sonia Shah: So that was a program funded by USAID and it involved lots of different agencies and academic institutions around the world. And what they would do is they would go to these disease hotspots and try to actively surveil how microbes might be changing. So they would sample say, scat from animals or take blood from farmers or hunters. They had a variety of different ways to actually actively look for these microbes and then see how they might be changing. And they actually were able to find about 900, I think, over the course of that 10 year period. And so then you can say, “Okay, well this microbe looks like it’s evolving to adapt to the human body in a way that could make it into a dangerous pathogen. Let’s change our behaviors on this local level so that it doesn’t have those opportunities anymore.” Maybe it’s changing hunting practices, or some trading practices, or something much more localized that you could alter through a small intervention as opposed to waiting until it starts erupting in epidemics and spreads around the world. And then thinking, “Oh, okay, now let’s try to contain it.”

Marc Stiener: So without being accusatory here, just larger questions in close. If Predict had been funded fully, if we had full funding to be able to look ahead and see what potential pathogens may arise, could this have been avoided? Is that possible or is that too much conjecture?

Sonia Shah: I mean it’s possible. This is all probabilities, right? So say there’s thousands of microbes out there that could become the next pandemic causing pathogen. If we could surveil and contain 80% of those, would our risk of pandemics go down? Yes, it would. Does it mean that this particular virus would not have emerged? Well, who knows?

Marc Stiener: And as we conclude Sonia give us a little tip for the future about what we should be wrestling with as a society in terms of how to go forward.

Sonia Shah: The first thing is we got to get this thing under control and what’s happening now is commercial pressures and political pressures are altering our containment strategy, and what we’re going to see is a bloodbath in our hospitals. So all of us need to chip in. And I think one of the things that’s really striking about these outbreaks of novel kinds of diseases is that there is no drug, there is no vaccine, there is no easy biomedical product that we can all use to solve it, right? Because they come up too fast and by the time you get the vaccine or the drug you’ve already had this whole wave of epidemic. So what that means is that the only thing that really works is collective action and solidarity. And I think we’re starting to see that in different parts of the world, and people are trying, and that’s really going to be the solution out of this thing.

Marc Stiener: Well Sonia Shah thank you for the work you do and the writing you do. It’s really important and I look forward to seeing what else you produce, look forward to your book coming out in June. And I want to thank you so much for joining us here on the real news today. I appreciate you taking the time with us, I know you’re very busy at this moment, so thank you so much.

Sonia Shah: Thank you.

Marc Stiener: And I’m Mark Steiner here for the Real News Network, thank you all for joining us. Let us know what you think. We’ll be covering this pandemic intensely from all different quarters. So take care and take care of yourself.

Global Dimming Paradox: Are we facing an abrupt temperature spike?

Global Warming is taking a rare back seat in the news right now, as we deal with the more immediate existential crisis afflicting our civilisation and way of life. But as entire countries are getting shut down around the world, with the rapid reduction of emissions that this causes, is the global dimming paradox about to be tested? Will we see an abrupt spike in temperatures that tips our earth systems into an irreversible cascade of warming feedbacks?

Interview With Chris Hedges ✨: Coronavirus, Climate Change And What's Next

By XRTV. A live XRTV #alonetogether interview with Chris Hedges, American journalist and author.

SNIPPET:

Chris won the Pulitzer Prize while at the New York Times and has written a number of groundbreaking books on the crises we face. He will talk about the massive changes which are now upon us - why this has been coming for a long time and how it relates to the climate crisis. He will speak on what the future will look like and our responsibility to shape it into a humane outcome rather than the default of fascism which we are heading towards at the moment.

🚩 Methane Levels Dramatically Increase

Methane Levels Dramatically Increase

Methane levels in the atmosphere experienced a dramatic rise in 2019, preliminary data released Sunday shows.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that methane levels increased by 11.54 parts per billion (ppb) in 2019 over 2018 levels, the largest increase since 2014. "Last year's jump in methane is one of the biggest we've seen over the past twenty years," Rob Jackson, professor of Earth system science at Stanford University and chair of the Global Carbon Project, told Bloomberg.

"It's too early to say why, but increases from both agriculture and natural gas use are likely. Natural gas consumption surged more than two percent last year." In the United States, the fossil fuel industry is the largest source of methane pollution, and emissions from the oil and gas sector have grown at least 40% over the last decade.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH Jamarl Thomas ✨ that we must abandon Sanders for the simple reason that he will urge people to vote for Biden.

Readers, save this list of the craven corrupt similarities of Trump with Biden to repeat them over and over to people that do not know the score with Biden: 👀

📢 😈 Biden and 🦀 Trump are BIRDS OF THE EXACT SAME NEOLIBERAL FASCIST FEATHER:

Corporate COVID-19 welfare and PEANUTS for we-the-people
Subsidies for Fossil Fuel Industry POLLUTERS
FRACKING support
SNAP funds REDUCTION
New "chained" CPI (i.e gamed formula to UNDERCOUNT INFLATION) to ROB workers and retired on pensions through COLA reductions 🤬
PROTECTION of Credit Card Corporation USURY LEVEL HIGH INTEREST RATES
DEFUNDING SOCIAL SECURITY
People KILLING SANCTIONS on IRAN
Gigantic PENTAGON BUDGET SWAG
Endless foreign wars for MIC SWAG
PROTECTING Big Pharma Drug Price Gouging
PROTECTING PREDATORY Payday Lender usury level rates
RELAXING Government BANKSTER Controlling Regulations
DEFANGING the SEC so 😈 Wall Street can run wild with insider trading, front running, etc. with IMPUNITY 👉CHECK
NO return to 1933-2000 Glass-Steagall to stop the Bank irresponsible insovency causing derivatives speculation we-the-people had to BAILOUT in 2008 👉CHECK
NO return to 1933-1982 when Corporate Stock BUYBACKS to game the stock price up WERE ILLEGAL 👉CHECK
NO INCREASE IN MINIMUM WAGE 👉CHECK 😠
DEFENSE of Corporate Health Insurance people bankrupting premiums and ZERO support for Medicare-4-ALL 👉CHECK
ZERO support for a GREEN NEW DEAL 👉CHECK 🥵

I can go ON, and ON and ON. Biden is a 🐘 DINO, like most 🐘 "Democrats". Trump is a FAKE "populist". It's the same God Damned THING!

Please do your own research into Biden's despicable oligarchy ass kissing record in the Senate. It is ALL THERE. Trump has simply been less subtle about his in-our-faces worship of the 1% profit over people and planet parasites, that is all. In actual policies, they are nearly identical.

For the "Democrats" (i.e. DINOs) who are already busy, busy, busy demonizing truth telling former Bernie supporters (calling us "Extremists" 🙄 who want to "see the planet burn rather than voting for Saint Joe Biden" 🥱) who are moving to the GREEN PARTY in order to herd us into voting for 🏴☠️ Biden: 🔊 Go ahead and pretend the Green Party "is irrelevant". Your Fascist Republican/"Democratic" profit over people and planet Duopoly worship is killing we-the-people. Have a nice day, you Planet Killing Extremists. 😡

The DINOS are the ones who want to see the world BURN, rather than saying goodbye to Corporate profit over people and planet CROOKS and moving to the GREEN PARTY.

Your choice is binary. Then we'll mark you down for Trump.
Any vote for Greens, Blues, reptilians, etc. is a vote for Trump.

See Stein, J. in 2016, and Nader, R. in 2000.

That is all
.

Sorry Bro, ethical behavior is NOT "binary". Stein, Nader, et al did the right thing. Yeah, Trump will win, probably in a landslide, but DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME that I am "supporting a Trump victory" by not voting for Biden or Trump. I didn't make this GOD DAMNED SYSTEM (and I'm NOT swearing), the "Democratic" Party FASCIST ENABLERS DID! As I said in 2016, Obama was the fascist warmup; Trump is the MAIN EVENT. You, an intelligent person, are going to sit there and tell me with a straight face that Biden isn't the FALL GUY for Trump, DELIBERATELY PUT THER BY THE DLC so Trump would win?

THAT'S WHAT HE IS, A FALL GUY! And if you want to "binary" your choice and vote for Biden, you will be very depressed this November.

Here's the deal, Bro. You are a very smart, but rather tubborn, fellow that thinks he has politics in the USA all figured out. Well, you, who normally sees things more clearly than I do in the political arena, are leaving out of your, normally rational calculus, a GIGANTIC IN-OUR-FACES CATASTROPHIC CLIMATE CHANGE PROBLEM. THAT IS NUMERO UNO, SURLY, not the fascist tyranny that we are ALREADY saddled with. You are DREAMING if you think Biden, in the highly unlikely event that he becomes POTUS, will prevent that. DON'T TELL ME YOU ARE NOT LEAVING THE CLIMATE CLUSTERFUCK OUT! YOU ARE BY TRYING TO HERD PEOPLE INTO VOTING FOR BIDEN.

Scoff all you want, Bro. Just read the following and then tell me to pound sand all you want. I've thought this through. Here's my rant on why Biden and Trump are BOTH nearly identical forms of NATIONAL SUICIDE: 

Biden's corporate friendly, people screwing track record is all there in the Senate. Trump can pretend he didn't actively help BUY politicians like Biden to do that, but it is a pretense, nothing more. However, Trump has the advantage that you cannot objectively and irrefutably "say" that Trump "specifically supported" all the SWAG GIVEAWAYS to the 1%, from legal tax loopholes to special bankruptcy favors to the money laundering fun and games the Congress aided and abetted, even though Trump was certainly part of the 1% crooks that DID "lobby" for all of that THEFT.

I'm sure Trump smiled broadly when then Senator Biden shut the door to student bankruptcy protection. Yeah, they were BOTH on EXACTLY THE SAME BANKSTER PLEASING PAGE, long before Biden became Obama's VP.

But, of course, what we have here is a contest of polished con artist liars, so both of them will claim they are "champions of the people" against the, uh, "DC swamp". They will shout until they are hoarse that they have "always defended the will of the American People"...

I was born in the dark, but it wasn't last night.

Remember that Trump gave most of his "political contributions" to the "Democratic" Party until Obama got there. The Clintons and Trumps were great pals and went to parties and weddings together. Maybe that is irrelevant to most casual observers, but Trump wasn't sending money to "Democrats" out of the goodness of his heart.

That said, the important thing for all of us who see a bit of a problem with the Fascist Tyranny in the USA goes WAY BEYOND the Dictatorship Cruelty and Despotism thing, as bad as THAT is.

It's the Catastrophic climate Change that BOTH Biden and Trump will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to address, except to, maybe, fund bunkers for the 1% where they can watch the rest of us go the way of all flesh (they might call it something like Save the "Job Creators" Act). That is not hyperbole. Most of the funds coming out of government now go to the 1%, so I would not put it past them to "legalize" another in-our-faces outrage.

These psychopaths really and honestly believe that they can beat this climate change thing with perception management (SEE; The Strength of the Will - a Fascist Fairy Tale those arrogant bastards believe in with all their might).

They just cannot wrap their greedy heads around the concept that humans cannot industrially defecate where they eat without eventually going extinct. We can expect no rational actions from them for the purpose of preserving the biosphere out of sine qua non human species survival necessity.

"For most of my adult life I’ve railed against “corporate capitalism”, “consumer capitalism” and “crony capitalism”. It took me a long time to see that the problem is not the adjective but the noun." -- George Monbiot

Quote
"... the bad freedoms to exploit those around us and extract huge profits without regard to the common good, including what is done to the ecosystem and democratic institutions. These bad freedoms see corporations monopolize technologies and scientific advances to make huge profits, even when, as with the pharmaceutical industry, a monopoly means lives of those who cannot pay exorbitant prices are put in jeopardy. The good freedoms—freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, freedom of meeting, freedom of association, freedom to choose one’s job—are eventually snuffed out by the primacy of the bad freedoms." -- Chris Hedges

Quote
The story of fossil fuel consumption growth is a story of technologies used, misused and moulded by the corporations that control them; of capitalist expansion, particularly after the second world war; and of government complicity -- Simon Pirani

Quote
"When we are swiftly shuttling ourselves down the path of irreversible climate cataclysm, the only unreasonable option is to double down on the status quo."

That ideological alignment between Biden and Trump is a death sentence for we-the-people in the USA, and possibly the entire human species. For that reason alone, no rational person can support either one or the Profit Over People and Planet Duopoly they serve.

I'm going to repost now some quotes I posted less than year after Trump came to power. Notice what has nauseatingly come to pass, despite scientists shouting from the rooftops that it is suicidal to continue 'business as usual' (a term near and dear to both the "Democrats" and the Republicans):

Quote
“Subsidizing fossil fuel companies in the face of rapid climate change is like spraying jet fuel on a burning home. To put out the fire, we must first stop making the problem worse,” Doukas continued. “Ignoring the problem just because fossil fuel industry mascots like Trump demand it is like agreeing to take the warning labels off of cigarettes because they offend Joe Camel. Our leaders must act now to stop burning our tax dollars and stop trashing the climate.”

Quote
"To say that Fossil Fuel Industry 🦕🦖 😈 disinformation isn’t the whole story is to knock down a straw man: the fact remains that it is a major--and perhaps the most important--part of the story."

Quote
"Amid the din of grinding gears, midnight tweets, intrigue and White House infighting comes the sound of old wheels rolling backward, of laws and protections being rescinded and redacted, of a rapid retreat away from any pretense of concern for the environment, the elderly and the vulnerable, and toward even taller profits for a select few. They’re coming for our friends, family and neighbors, and they’re coming for the loot too. They want your money, and will have it if they can get it." -- Truthout, William Rivers Pitt, Columnist and Editor

The above was predicted over three years ago. Today, April 10, 2020, we know it will only get worse, no matter which of the two Oligarchic TOOLS, Biden or Trump, wins the November 2020 election.

We either get off this dead end track by silent, total 100% rejection of our Profit over People and Planet MORON FASCISTS, or we are all toast.

Sure, if we break the back of the "Democratic" Party by moving massively to the Green Party, we may all die from Trump inaction on climate anyway after he wins in November in a landslide. But, moving massively to the Green Party is the only, not simply ethical, but also rational, choice we have before us at this time.

If we swallow the Bernie pro-Biden BULLSHIT and choose to be "lesser" evil quislings for the "Democratic" Party, we are going to die just as quickly from the Catastrophic Climate Change now arriving that neither Biden nor Trump will try, beyond lip service and perception management legerdemain, to mitigate.
