    “China labeled biggest polluter, more than US and rest of developed countries combined

    A new climate report published today claims China is by far the highest producer of greenhouse gas emissions.”

    “A story from CNBC highlights the findings from a research and analytics firm called the Rhodium group. In their new report they just published earlier today, they’ve directly said that China’s greenhouse gas emissions for 2019 surpassed the United States and the rest of the developed world, combined.

    Their article comes with a line graph that demonstrates how China’s gas emissions acceleration happened over time.”

  6. They’ve destroyed their environment and are now hitting US companies to pay for clean up. Keep that in mind next time you hear how important solar panels made in China are. Much more environmentally clean to make them in CA.

  7. It’s time to start arresting officials for obstruction. Americans deserve to know the truth about the most honest election in history…

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/maricopa-county-refuses-to-provide-routers-to-election-auditors_3805624.html

    “Arizona’s Maricopa County is refusing to turn over routers or router images to election auditors, defying a judge’s ruling.

    The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office informed former Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett of the decision this week. Bennett is the Arizona Senate’s liaison for the audit.

    The county was told late last month, while delivering subpoenaed election materials to the state Senate’s custody, that delivering routers, or even images of routers, “posed a significant security risk to law enforcement data utilized by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office as well as numerous federal agencies.”

    “We had previously believed that the risk would be eliminated by redacting the law enforcement data on the routers and not producing it. But we were informed that redaction did not eliminate the risk,” Joseph LaRue, deputy county attorney, told Bennett in a letter obtained by The Epoch Times.”

    “The subpoenas issued by the state Senate to the county last year say auditors require access or control of all routers, tabulators, or some combinations thereof “in order to garner the system logs.”

    The subpoena in question was for electronic machines used in the election. Each machine has a log, or record.

    The county tried to rebuff the subpoenas, but a judge in February ruled the county must comply with them.”

  8. https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/socialist-revolution-is-underway-in-america-trevor-loudon_3804806.html

    “America is now in the midst of a communist revolution that is trying to centralize power through bringing every element of the U.S. government, from the lowest levels to the top, under the control of the executive branch, said author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon.

    “Therefore, the independence of the legislature, the independence of the supreme court, the independence of the sheriffs and the police must all be destroyed, and the loyalty of the army to the Constitution must be transferred to loyalty to the president,” Loudon said in an interview with The Epoch Times’ Crossroads program.

    “And this is guided by socialists. I believe it’s guided by the Communist Party of China,” Loudon said. The revolution uses race “rather than class to overturn the existing structures of society and start something new.”

    Marx’s theory of exploitation divides people into two opposing classes, the bourgeoisie with capital that oppresses the proletariat and the working class.

    Because there is mobility between classes, as workers can buy equity in a company or start their own businesses, this theory has not gained much support in America, but race can be used to divide American society because it cannot be changed, Loudon said.”

  10. Tychicus,

    They’ve had so much time to alter or destroy evidence that we’ll never know the truth now. Dems won, because the courts allowed it. Your post above is a perfect example. The Dems in Maricopa refue to provide what the judge ordered.

    What will be their punishment?

    Nothing. Just like with Russia, Russia, Russia, the Steele Dossier and all the rest. They win because our courts are either stacked with Dem appointees, or impotent and neutered R’s without the stones or authority to do anything. They suck, and America loses again.

    And people on “our side” cheer it on.

    “April’s expected hiring boom goes bust as nonfarm payroll gain falls well short of estimates”

    “Hiring was a huge letdown in April, with nonfarm payrolls increasing by a much less than expected 266,000.

    The unemployment rate rose to 6.1%, the Labor Department said.

    Dow Jones estimates had been for 1 million new jobs and an unemployment rate of 5.8%.”

    “New Study Estimates More Than 900,000 People Have Died Of COVID-19 In U.S.”

    https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2021/05/06/994287048/new-study-estimates-more-than-900-000-people-have-died-of-covid-19-in-u-s

    “A new study estimates that the number of people who have died of COVID-19 in the U.S. is more than 900,000, a number 57% higher than official figures.

    Worldwide, the study’s authors say, the COVID-19 death count is nearing 7 million, more than double the reported number of 3.24 million.

    The analysis comes from researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, who looked at excess mortality from March 2020 through May 3, 2021, compared it with what would be expected in a typical nonpandemic year, then adjusted those figures to account for a handful of other pandemic-related factors.

    The final count only estimates deaths “caused directly by the SARS-CoV-2 virus,” according to the study’s authors. SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19.

    Researchers estimated dramatic undercounts in countries such as India, Mexico and Russia, where they said the official death counts are some 400,000 too low in each country. In some countries — including Japan, Egypt and several Central Asian nations — the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s death toll estimate is more than 10 times higher than reported totals.

    “The analysis just shows how challenging it has been during the pandemic to accurately track the deaths — and actually, transmission — of COVID. And by focusing in on the total COVID death rate, I think we bring to light just how much greater the impact of COVID has been already and may be in the future,” said Dr. Christopher Murray, who heads the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

    The group reached its estimates by calculating excess mortality based on a variety of sources, including official death statistics from various countries, as well as academic studies of other locations.

    Then, it examined other mortality factors influenced by the pandemic. For example, some of the extra deaths were caused by increased opioid overdoses or deferred health care. On the other hand, the dramatic reduction in flu cases last winter and a modest drop in deaths caused by injury resulted in lower mortality in those categories than usual.

    Researchers at UW ultimately concluded that the extra deaths not directly caused by COVID-19 were effectively offset by the other reductions in death rates, leaving them to attribute all of the net excess deaths to the coronavirus.

    “When you put all that together, we conclude that the best way, the closest estimate, for the true COVID death is still excess mortality, because some of those things are on the positive side, other factors are on the negative side,” Murray said.”

  13. Huh.

    From an actual doctor…… not just somebody who plays one on the news, like Fauci and Walensky.

    “Johns Hopkins Doctor Dismisses Walensky Fear-Mongering: ‘Most Of The Country Is At Herd Immunity'”

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/scottmorefield/2021/05/06/johns-hopkins-doctor-dismisses-walensky-fearmongering-most-of-the-country-is-at-herd-immunity-n2589086

    “Dr. Marty Makary, a surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, disputed CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky’s contention that COVID-19 variants could set back the march to herd immunity from COVID-19 during a Thursday afternoon appearance on Fox News’ “The Story.”

    Walensky on Wednesday called the various COVID-19 scariants, er, variants a “wild card” that could “reverse” the progress made so far.”

    “In an op-ed for the New York Post published Tuesday titled “Don’t buy the fearmongering: The COVID-19 threat is waning,” Makary argued against buying into the “fear” that variants could “evade vaccines.”

    Look at the facts: About 57 percent of adults are vaccinated and approximately half of unvaccinated people have natural immunity from prior infection. That’s why US cases have been plummeting, down 31 percent over the past 18 days.

    To put things in context, during the mildest flu season in the last eight years, there were 24 million cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control, and approximately 447,000 daily cases during its peak week. By comparison, we’re averaging 49,641 daily COVID cases. That same mild flu season resulted in 280,000 hospitalizations. By comparison, current COVID hospitalizations as of May 1 are 34,905.

    Let me be clear: COVID is not the flu, and we should not downplay the risk among susceptible people. But for the millions of Americans who are immune and live where the cases are low, the public-health threat is now defanged and below seasonal-flu levels. Given the harm of social isolation, we need to abandon the goal of absolute risk elimination at all cost.

    “Look, we’ve had dozens of variants and they’re all entirely encompassed by the vaccine and preventing serious outcomes,” Makary told Fox News anchor Trace Gallagher. “So, we’ve got to be careful right now and not scare people. People need something to look forward to and if you look at the numbers, we’re doing well right now.””
