COVID-19 is only the beginning (from Russia with love....)

The following article by Jasmin Fox-Skelly was published by the BBC on May 4, 2017. So, for many years scientists have been warning politicians that global warming is causing viruses like COVI-19 to start thriving and wrecking havoc. This is exactly what I mean when I say that every single literate person is responsible for the unfolding chaos of which COVID-19 is only the beginning. As long as allow people like Trump and Johnson to run our countries we are the ones to blame.

Torsten, I don’t want to be negative, but our politicians probably left the matter to be treated for another day, or perhaps they swept it under the carpet. They seem to ignore crucial issues like that, to say the least of it. :rage:

Torsten, I agree with you to some extent that we are the ones to blame, allowing people like Trump and Johnson to rule our countries. Yet, I will never vote and have never done so for people like that. Last year on May 26th I was horrified that the majority of the people in Flanders had voted for Vlaams Belang. The prospect of that party ruling our country filled me with disgust. Up till now, it hasn’t happened.

Yes, Torsten, inaction is like indifference which is an accomplice to the crime. So, it is high time we woke up from our slumber and became more conscious of and responsible for the sustenance of this planet.
