Climate cultists now say indoor house plants are bad for the planet



One of the most harmful things a person can do with regard to the
environment is purchase indoor plants for a home or office space, as
doing so “pollutes” the atmosphere with carbon, according to the Washington Post.

Writer Nicolás Rivero argues that when it comes to climate change
and global warming, indoor houseplants are an environmental threat as
the trucks that deliver them to the local nursery “spew carbon
emissions.” Likewise, the plastic pots and trays that hold indoor plants
are made from petroleum.

Even though house plants “breathe in” carbon dioxide while
releasing oxygen for humans and animals to breathe, the “environmental
cost” of greening one’s indoor spaces is too high, according to climate
cultists, to legitimize their use.

“Every little thing we do adds up collectively, so if all of us
are doing these things, the collective impact is quite large,” says
Susan Pell, director of the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C.

“The mindful act of trying to be more sustainable in one area of your daily life … helps you to be mindful in other areas.”

Stark living for the planet

According to Pell, one particular aspect of house plants that many
people overlook is the distance they typically have to travel – from the
places where they are grown to retail stores and to the insides of
people’s living and working spaces.

“A lot of major nursery suppliers are located in Florida and in California,” Pell added in a statement, as quoted by the Post.

Pell recommends that climate-conscious people instead look for
local plant swaps or garden clubs, which are often organized online via
social media sites.

“Those groups frequently meet multiple times a year and they
share not just plant cuttings and potted plants with each other, but
they’ll share knowledge as well and sometimes have community events,”
Pell noted.

Rivero also warns against using certain soil components like
peat, a natural earth-based substance that forms at the bottom of bogs
and wetlands. A precursor to the formation of coal, peat releases carbon
dioxide (CO2) when harvested and is “not easily renewable,” which makes
it bad in the minds of climate cultists.

“It takes hundreds of years, if not thousands of years, to form,”
Pell says about peat. “We’re cutting into these peatlands and
eventually they’ll all be harvested.”

Instead of peat, Pell wants people to try peat alternatives like
coconut coir or biochar, which retain water in soil mix “with less of
the environmental baggage.”

Pell says gardeners, both of the indoor and outdoor variety,
should commit to purchasing pots, shears, plant stands, and other tools
locally instead of at the store, which typically carries consumer
products made in other countries like China from which they travel long
distances, emitting carbon all along the way.

“I love to buy plant stands from antique stores,” Pell commented
about how she personally tries to save the planet. “You can often find
locally made ceramic pots throughout the country and certainly in our
area” near D.C.

Pell really dislikes “the cheap, black plastic pots that quickly
fall apart,” and instead prefers terracotta and ceramic pots that are
more durable. Disposable pots can also be used, and Pell recommends
those made from biodegradable materials.

Pell also advises against using fertilizer on house plants
because fertilizer, according to climate cultists, is another bad thing
for the environment that has got to go.

“I myself almost never fertilize my houseplants and they do just fine,” Pell said.

Experts Declare Experimental Cancer Vaccine Based On mRNA Technology Is ‘Safe and Effective’




A new cancer vaccine based on Covid mRNA vaccine technology
which has yet to be clinically tested has already been declared “safe
and effective” by the British government.

Known as ‘LungVax’,
the new vaccine is being developed by the University of Oxford, the
Francis Crick Institute and University College London, and is expected
to be the first of a huge range of new cancer vaccinations available in
the near future.

Research scientists developing the ‘groundbreaking’ lung cancer
vaccine claim it will be effective in preventing up to 90 per cent of
cases by training the immune system to locate and attack early signs of

Lung cancer cells look different from normal cells due to having ‘red
flag’ proteins called neoantigens. The LungVax vaccine will carry a strand of DNA which trains the immune system to recognize these neoantigens on abnormal lung cells.

It will then instruct the immune system to destroy these cells and stop lung cancer.

Professor Tim Elliot, lead researcher at the University of Oxford, said: ‘Cancer
is a disease of our own bodies and it’s hard for the immune system to
distinguish between what’s normal and what’s cancer. 

‘Getting the immune system to recognize and attack cancer is one of the biggest challenges in cancer research today.”

Elliot admitted the new vaccine is based on technology used to create the Covid vaccine.

‘This research could deliver an off-the-shelf vaccine based on
Oxford’s vaccine technology, which proved itself in the Covid pandemic.

Remarkably, given the disastrous health consequences for those
vaccinated with the experimental Covid vaccines, Eilliot praised the
mRNA roll out as a success.

‘If we can replicate the kind of success seen in trials during
the pandemic, we could save the lives of tens of thousands of people
every year in the UK alone.’

Researchers have been granted up to £1.7 million from Cancer Research UK and the CRIS Cancer Foundation.

The team will receive funding for the study over the next 2 years to
support lab research and initial manufacturing of 3,000 doses of the
vaccine at the Oxford Clinical BioManufacturing Facility.

If successful, the vaccine will move straight into a clinical trials,
involving those at biggest risk of disease, such as current and former
smokers who currently qualify for targeted lung health checks in some
parts of the UK.

TV Host Demands Gov’t ‘Take Control’ of Elon Musk’s X To ‘Shut Down’ Conspiracy Theories




Elon Musk’s X must be “shut down” by government because dangerous “conspiracy theories” are spreading on the social media platform, according to British TV host Jeremy Vine.

“If there any argument to say, and this will sound crazy, but
China does it, we’ve got to now take control of Twitter and shut it down
for the time being,”
said Vine.

Vine made the comments earlier this week during a heated debate
regarding speculation surrounding the health and whereabouts of Kate
Middleton, the Princess of Wales.

‘We’ve now got to take control of Twitter’…..???????????? ⁦

Boomers have become obsessed with speculating that Middleton has died or is severely unwell and that the Royal Family is hiding it because she hasn’t been seen in months after an operation.

The manipulation of a series of photo of Middleton and her children also only served to fuel the rumors, as some sources close to the princess claimed she had been murdered by the royal family.

However, instead of dismissing the whole issue for what it is, a pointless distraction that will disappear once Middleton makes a public appearance around Easter, Vine called for draconian measures.

Modernity report:

Ah yes, the Communist dictatorship of China, which shuts down the Internet to clamp down on dissent and enhance its repression of undesirables.

That’s definitely who we should be mimicking, Jeremy.

Throughout the COVID pandemic, Vine’s show was a platform for some of the most vulgar, authoritarian drivel imaginable.

One show asked if children who are unvaccinated should be banned from schools or made to wear special badges.

Another asked, “Is it time to ban the unvaccinated from traveling?”

Vine has made a name for himself as being a dutiful amplifier of regime messaging, while his annoying side hobby of biking around London looking to film confrontations with motorists has also angered many.
