Warnings from scientists are nothing new. They are ignored all the time though. They should not be confused with REPENT–The World Is Coming To An End statements made by non-scientists. Covid 19 warnings were initially ignored and we saw the results.
Are we more ready to heed warnings from scientists? We will know soon by what the world does with the root cause of many of the viruses that spread everywhere and the root cause of global warming.
According to the YouTube video below, China is the main source of exotic animals and bats that end up in wet markets that are the root source of the viruses that are killing us. It is clear that Covid 19 and its handling will be at the heart of the elections in November and Republicans want to get voters mad at China instead of mad at the handling of the pandemic. That said, we should be able to do both. It is not so much that we should blame China for the pandemic as much as it is to encourage them to eliminate the wet markets.
A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
Bill Maher in his unique and colorful style nails the need for China to eliminate the wet markets extremely well here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEfDwc2G2_8&feature=youtu.be

Hopefully there are many more people in this world and who will allow Covid 19 make them more adamant about listening and heeding to warnings from scientists and take action. Maybe global warning concerns will gain traction. Both are invisible threats.
Outer space is cold because it lacks air and the particulates that would be suspended in it if air existed there. The more particulates that are suspended in air the warmer the air. Doesn’t it make sense that as populations rise that particultates would also rise? Is it hard to believe that there is all of a sudden a problem when one didn’t exist before?
Well, at the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million to 300 million. It’s not like we have precise numbers for that period of time.
A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion, the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in 30 years (1960), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987).
During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now.
