Climate Change to Blame for Monkeypox Outbreak, Says Professor

Climate change is likely behind the global outbreak of monkeypox, a professor of health systems has said. 

The disease had largely been eradicated due to smallpox vaccines but the few people who do contract it usually do so in tropical rainforest areas of central and west Africa – often after coming into contact with animals.

“Climate change is driving animal populations out of their normal ranges and human populations into areas where animals live,” Professor Staines of DCU explained to On The Record with Gavan Reilly.

“There’s a very detailed analysis of about 40 years of data published in [the journal] Nature a few months ago that documents what has happened and predicts what may happen in the future and it’s very much driven now by climate change – and to an extent by human population growth.

“But climate change is pushing people into cities, it’s pushing animals into closer proximity with people and we’re seeing connections that we never saw before.

“So this is what living with climate change looks like.”

Monkeypox is very rarely fatal and most sufferers develop a fever, rash and swollen lymph nodes. Symptoms last for up to a month and the disease is transmitted through skin to skin contact, body fluids, respiratory droplets or contaminated items such as bedding and clothing.

Climate change likely to blame for monkeypox outbreak, expert says

COVID/Climate Merging: Modeling study claims: ‘Climate Change Will Make Pandemics Like COVID More Likely’

COVID/Climate Merging: Modeling study claims: ‘Climate Change Will Make Pandemics Like COVID More Likely’

   .

“Climate change is creating a new age of infectious dangers.” Climate Change Could Spark Future Pandemics – “The research, published in Nature, uses modeling to map how climate change could shift the geographic ranges of 3,100 mammals species and the viruses they carry by 2070. … The findings suggest that climate change could “easily become the dominant [human] driver” of cross-species virus transmission by 2070, the authors say.”

#

Marc Morano: “They want to keep both climate and COVID fears humming along to push their so-called solutions, so what better way than to merge the two issues!? Worried about COVID-19, then support the UN Paris climate pact, the Green New Deal, carbon taxes, etc. or else you are a gramma killer!”

Meanwhile, the data does not support this latest speculative computer model COVID/Climate scare story: See: H. Sterling Burnett’s analysis: Science Crushes Claimed Link Between COVID & Climate– ‘In reality, if a modestly warming Earth has any impact on viruses and pandemics, it is to make them less likely and less severe…Historically, we know that the Black Plague arose and ran rampant in Europe and elsewhere during the Little Ice Age.’

Bill Gates warns ‘climate change’ will cause more viruses like COVID-19 – Claims ‘it’s quite clear’ it originated in bats

Bill Gates: “It’s quite clear in this case, [Covid] came across through animals. And almost all our diseases, like HIV, crossed over from chimpanzees in Africa quite some time ago; Ebola came from bats, this also, with one step in between came across from bats.” – “So it’s going to keep happening, particularly with climate change where we’re invading a lot of habitats. And you want to catch it as soon as you can.”

So, if Monkey Pox was widely eradicated due to the Small Pox vaccine, then how many cases of Monkey Pox exist among those with the Small Pox Vaccine scar?
The Small Pox vaccine hasn’t been administered in decades so if Monkey Pox is only contagious among the unvaccinated, perhaps it is time to break out those Small Pox vaccination guns again

No vaccine actually eradicates any infection disease.

The natural immunity, individual and herd, does over time suppress and may at some point ‘wash it out’ of the system.

Vaccines only help and support the natural immunity, but only when effective and applied correctly.

There is a lot of infectious diseases that are very much suppressed by natural immunity, in some cases by vaccination help… but still persisting in the herd.

Monkeypox is one of them among many.
Like, H1N1, swine flu, bird flu, the other previous SARS, hepatitis, smallpox +++ and many others that not even known anymore.

There still are carriers of such infectious diseases there, in small numbers, at any time, in the herd.
Any one at any time can be a carrier of such… but when firmly suppressed these diseases are not successful to spread around and not able to gain momentum towards critical mass for high flaring in the herd… and therefor are not dangerous or a problem either for carriers or non carriers.

Mess around with natural immunity, and no much vaccines can do.

Apart from a significant or appalling quick deterioration of living standards,
some thing like the actual response to what we call COVID19, from mandatory lockdowns, mandatory face diapers, social distancing,
to
the mad bad mass vaccination of global herd mostly with new “vaccines”,
is a formidable condition for weakening and jeopardizing the natural immunity and bringing back to strength any successfully suppressed infectious diseases…

and Monkeypox is not a really dangerous one even when it flares back to ‘life’, compared to some others.

First,
the silly malevolent response to COVID19 did, was a significant deterioration of the healthcare system support, in a global scale… everywhere…

and second,
via the wide global scale application of ‘non vaccines’ “vaccines” it increased the chance for such very much suppressed infection diseases (a no problem) to flare back on strength and break the suppression (a high risk and considerably dangerous condition).

A human infectious disease is a human one, even when at some point happened to be via cross species… originating from some other specie.

Monkeypox is not a climate change disease, as it predates the time frame of this never ending climate hubris.
It has being there for a long while now, and still is circulating in the herd,
lately rearing it’s head strongly and clearly above the parapet.

Most probably will not be either the first or the last of such as infectious diseases to do this… especially if we keep going on
with the same stupid-malicious COVID19 response to a non problem.

I like to think that, you at some point do not dismiss (entirely), out of hand, my point.

But is more about,
an hipper artificially acquired IDS (Immune Deficiency Syndrome) condition, than a disturbing auto immune response problem.

In my count and my understanding, the latest excessive severity and fatality, per the data,
it simply shows that mostly the real problem due to an IDS condition,
than an auto immune response… while both very much similar, especially at given times of confusion, but still not exactly the same.

No much data there supporting, the proposition that SarsCov2 contributing to the latest spike of excessive fatalities, as the organ ‘lung’ not any where contributing to such as a spike of excessive fatalities.

Hopefully this helping you understand my point.

A recent study led by Professor Moriarty of the University of Knotty Ash and published on April 1st has concluded that there is a clear link between climate change and abortion. Professor Moriarty and his team examined data going back several decades and noted that as the global temperature has been rising, so also has the number of abortions. Professor Moriarty has warned that there is now an existential crisis as if global warming reaches 3 degrees C above the pre-industrial level, the number of abortions will become so great that the human race may become extinct. In addition, the rise in global temperature is causing a fall in the fertility rate. The super-computers Professor Moriarty and his team uses have been able to develop highly sophisticated and reliable models and, using these models, they have been able to show that unless global warming is kept below 1.5 degrees C, the world population might be as low as 1 billion by the end of the century. This study was reported in The Guardian newspaper under the headline, “World population will be less than one billion by the end of the century.”

The funny thing is that the phony climate change, even in its phoniness has a claimed core link to the modern technological evolution… and also to population increase.

Apart from SarsCov2 there has being not any real global Pandemic.
And this one is clearly the result of the modern technological evolution.

And infectious diseases like Monkeypox, Hepatitis or H1N1 Spanish Flu are neither new or Pandemic… or endemic,
and hopefully will not make it back successfully to some epidemics scale… and remain suppressed by Natural immunity, individual and herd immunity… else much unnecessary pain and suffering will be the order of the day for a while.

So, by extrapolation, these dudes, malevolently try to have the phony climate change associated with the Pandemics, endemics, epidemics, or any other concerning health issues..
while in the same time, achieving a furthering of their “holy” cause via more panic porn,
and also covering the real cause of the problem…
which still happens to be the irresponsible malevolent abuse-misuse of the modern technological marvel.

Last, but not least;
Increased population goes hand in hand with technological and civic evolution… and considerably as shown in reality, also with the increasing of living standards.
For as long as this holds,
the increase of population, increases the efficiency and the positive impact of Natural immunity, individual and herd.
But only for as long as this harmony holds… and not jeopardized, by some phoniness.

Yeah, I thought the outbreak of Monkeypox was associated with a large human get-together in Europe. Not long after the party was over, the attendees found themselves infected with Monkeypox. It has nothing to do with CO2 or “climate change”. Alarmists are despersate to tie anything and everything to climate change which they claim is caused by human activity. There’s no evidence that Human-caused Climate Change is real, I might add.

And why is Bill Gates running interference for the Chicoms with regard to the origin of the Wuhan virus?

2 get togethers, both of male promiscuous homosexuals, one in Spain, at a “sauna”, the second in Belgium, a ‘festival”, were the super spreader events that have spiked the numbers.

You will not hear much about this cause and effect since promoting promiscuity and homosexuality are currently of great importance to the left, and therefore, to the media.

As was and still is true for HIV and AIDS, much money will be spent to help those who get what in this outbreak is a sexually transmitted disease. The fact that it is primarily sexually transmitted by promiscuous male homosexual sex will be hidden from the general public.

“Investigators determined that a shipment of animals from Ghana, imported to Texas in April 2003, introduced monkeypox virus into the United States. The shipment contained approximately 800 small mammals representing nine different species, including six types of rodents. These rodents included rope squirrels, tree squirrels, African giant pouched rats, brush-tailed porcupines, dormice, and striped mice. CDC laboratory testing showed that two African giant pouched rats, nine dormice, and three rope squirrels were infected with monkeypox virus. After importation into the United States, some of the infected animals were housed near prairie dogs at the facilities of an Illinois animal vendor. These prairie dogs were sold as pets before they developed signs of infection.

All people infected with monkeypox became ill after having contact with infected pet prairie dogs.” CDC

It’s not a punishment by God on homosexuals or those who don’t want a proper pet. Promiscuity and homosexuality was always frowned upon because of the problems it caused with spread of disease ( and tearing the social fabric of developing societies in other ways). It’s a good example of how progress of civilisation has allowed loosening of taboos rather than being more liberal developed society. Pretty sure that Drake is having a go at the media who forget that.

If the claim were that population growth drives people into monkey habitat I wouldn’t have bothered scrutinising it very carefully.

I was amused to see Bill Gates recently quoted saying “That is why I calculate that there is a 50% chance that we will have a pandemic of natural origin in the next 20 years, as a consequence of climate change”. Bill Gates veering out of his lane to calculate such things is pretty gutsy when he is famous for spectacular fails in (arguably) his own field, such as “a move from 64k to 640k felt like something that would last a great deal of time”.

Talking about global warming and monkeying about business you might consider this:
“It comes as Westminster (the UK’s Government) is considering paying for a supply of coal to keep power stations online that would otherwise be shutting before winter. Energy companies Drax, EDF and Uniper would receive the supplies and delay the closure of some coal plants in September, Bloomberg reported.”

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2022/05/31/europe-lurches-closer-energy-crisis-kremlin-cuts-gas-supply/

I hope that the government’s boffins of Whitehall know that price of coal during the last year has risen from $US100 to well over $US400/ metric tonne.
Note: some of the Drax power plant coal units have been kept in reserve to meet swings in demand.

Even from the Royal Society, open access. It is an interesting paper, genetic work popular, polyploidy not all that new.—Extensive polyploid clonality was a successful strategy for seagrass to expand into a newly submerged environment. 
https://doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2022.0538 

They cite polyploidy in turtle grass (Thalassia testudinum) which, with other Gulf of Mexico seagrasses, appears and disappears due to climate changes, mostly salinity. Once was told about a sprig of turtle grass that appeared rooted several miles upestuary where it had been many decades before during 50s drought, but didn’t last with water probably too fresh. They tear loose during storms, dredging, prop scars, suspect that even manatees and sea turtles pull out a few, root in shallow water where wave action moves sediment. Don’t know of any specific references about such indirect migration, but they are known to flourish with added carbon dioxide along with many other plants. Some of these even live in real acid sediment.

Progressing from having gained written evidence that no ‘expert’, all the way up to the IPCC, can provide the burden of proof for the base climatard claims, I am now in the process of using the WHO Treaty to establish a range of benchmarks, whereby one question outstanding in order to establish competence is whether answer can be given as to whether they can explain a knowledge of pseudoscience in regard to the claim of climate at the same time as zoonotic evolution.

No it isn’t, but the outbreak does present the UN/WHO with another opportunity to weigh in. It’s also an opportunity that isn’t lost on the wokerati.

“UN denounces ‘racist’ and ‘homophobic’ coverage of monkeypox”

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/un-denounces-racist-and-homophobic-coverage-of-monkeypox/ar-AAXCC9m

“British officials have told those suffering from monkeypox that they should abstain from sex in the hopes of curbing the spread of the disease. Those showing symptoms of the monkeypox virus should avoid having sex with other people, government experts have advised those suffering from the disease.”

Stop the Spread by Not Having Sex, UK Tells Monkeypox Sufferers (breitbart.com)

As far as I know, the outbreak started in Spain among gay men and it is transmitted to very close contacts, i.e. sexual relations between men. What’s homophobic about these simple facts? Why wasn’t it homophobic when HIV appeared in the 80s?

As for racist, most stock photos of people with the disease are likely to be of black people for obvious reasons.

Quite worrying that in the US, Fauci’s NIH funded a ~$10m research project into Monkeypox treatment starting in 2020, and that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has published information about their genetic engineering of parts of the Monkeypox genome just in February this year. Too many coincidences!

My first thought, somewhat tounge-in-cheek, when monkeypox was initially reported was “I wonder if NIH has been funding monkeypox research at Wuhan?”.

It turns out the answer is yes on both counts:

https://youtu.be/4E6cD-VWhQY

In the published report is the rather strange admission that WIV synthesized the entire monkeypox virus genome because “the natural virus was not available”, a very dubious claim as the disease occurs naturally in Africa.

Smallpox, which was eradicated in the 1970s could be brought back in a lab, even without an actual sample to work from. This has been raised as a concern before; the WIV admission proves the concern is valid.

Unlike Gates, I put the probability of another pandemic in the next 20 years at 100% unless we can get a handle on what kind of virus research is being funded by NIH, which is clearly not going to happen with Collins and Fauci in charge.

Hey! come on get with the climate crisis program.
Everything that happens negatively is due to CO2 and man made fossil fuel consumption.
Once you have accepted that simple Climate Alarmist position the whole question of cause and effect is resolved.
Man made activities = bad
Climate alarmists opinions = good
There but for the GRETA god, go I.

NB On the basis of the above well proven hypothesis, that everything done by humanity is adding to the bad. Does anyone know what activities humans might engage in that would create a positive reaction from the Climate Alarmist community….anything?

Bill Gates –>

 “So it’s going to keep happening, particularly with climate change where we’re invading a lot of habitats. And you want to catch it as soon as you can.” (bold by me)

Exactly why is climate change causing humans to invade habitats? This makes no sense unless human population is growing. That’s not exactly an indictment of warming weather. It’s another revealing of what the elites truly think, i.e., that we need to reduce the size of the human population.

Got nothing to do with contact with monkeys. The only reason it’s called that is because the rodent/rat borne virus was first seen in 1958 on infected monkeys. Rats and other rodents carry the disease – that’s the main vector for infection; human to human transmission is less effective and usually involves skin to skin contact with someone when they are obviously infected – ie already showing extensive lesions.

I’ve asked that question, and it seems to be the case. It’s like cowpox being used to make the smallpox vaccine. In the ’50s, they came up with the modern smallpox vaccine.

Similarly, I guess the current smallpox vaccine is close enough to take care of the monkeypox.

It looks like those of us who got the smallpox vaccine can just ignore the monkeypox hullabaloo. Ho-hum, eh?

Cowpox, as a successful vaccine, a life virus vaccine, clearly shows via it’s success that it is the dominant pox virus, among the human pox viruses.

A population vaccinated with the cowpox is one that has at any time far more carriers of cowpox than of any other pox.
Any condition favoring a pox flaring in the herd, it will favor far more the cowpox virus… which will block and prevent the other pox viruses to flourish in the herd.

Yes, I would say that the cowpox vaccination is still considerably potential against other human pox viral infections, in the consideration of the herd… even when in individual cases, at specific moments, the other human pox virus infections may persist, here and there.
(the Monkeypox referred to in this case, is a human pox viral infection disease, regardless of the naming, as also happens to be the cowpox vaccine virus, or the cowpox)

People,in the consideration of the herd, are far more susceptible to cowpox than other human pox viruses… especially after such a lengthy time of the cowpox persisting in the herd, due to smallpox vaccination.

What is Climate Change?  Is it colder or warmer? Is it drier or wetter? Is it more major weather events or fewer major weather events?  
How Climate Change is combatted will be determined by what we are fighting.
Are we fighting CO2?  Here is a Google Search on what does increasing CO2 have on plant growth:
Studies have shown that higher concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide affect crops in two important ways: they boost crop yields by increasing the rate of photosynthesis, which spurs growth, and they reduce the amount of water crops lose through transpiration.

Well, this stupid assertion is as dumb as all the other stupid assertions that climate change is to blame for ___ when it is clear the climate has not changed to any significant degree.

If a particular disease is associated with the tropics, so what? The Earth has always had tropics where it was warmer and wetter than the rest of the planet, even during the glaciation eras. For most of our planet’s lifetime, it’s been mostly tropical, with it only being in the last 2.6 million years that much of the planet was not tropical.

As far as anyone knows, the tropics are no larger or hotter or wetter today than they were last year, or last decade, or last century, or last millennium.

If the climate got cooler we would still catch “Monkey Pox” given that climate change cause “Monkey Pox”. So the only way we can’t catch “Monkey Pox” is if the climate never changes. Meanwhile, the climate has been changing for the last 4.5 billion years.
It looks like we’re all going to catch “Monkey Pox”.

Climate change is driving animal populations out of their normal ranges and human populations into areas where animals live, …

The annual range of Earth’s temperature is at least 250 deg F, with a standard deviation of several ten’s of degrees, with a long tail on the cold side. Diurnal changes in the desert can be about 100 deg F. The average global temperature and rate of increase are biased upwards by anomalous Arctic warming. The increase at night and in the Winter is greater than the day and Summer. Even so, the global average increase over the last 50 years is less than 2 deg F.

So, we are expected to believe that tropical animals that experience seasonal temperature changes, which may be an order of magnitude larger than the diurnal changes, are going to be driven to migrate laterally to flat areas where people build, rather than up-slope 1,000 feet if they have little tolerance for warming.

There are a lot of assumptions behind the claim, and little evidence to support it! I never cease to be amazed at the bald-faced claims made by well-educated people who are supposed to be objective.

If I recall correctly, the index case of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which is endemic in African chimpanzees was found in an airline steward who flew from Africa to Haiti and then onto Canada. Huam transmission initially was men having sex with other men. A person so infected results in Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDs) which then sped around the world.

Monkey Pox, endemic in African tropical rainforests of Central and West regions may be found in monkeys with a natural reservoir in rodents. The latest outbreaks were in Europe amongst two large gatherings, one in the European Union and the other in Great Britain.

So what did we learn coming Out of Africa? direct contact with monkey, chimpanzee and rodents has yielded viral infections unique to Africa get transmitted human to human elsewhere in the world, again requiring direct skin to skin contact, unless of course one is bitten by a rat.

Bill Gates was often the standard response when intelligent and motivated, but anti-social, teenagers struggled in school and talked about dropping out. He became the richest man in the world through his obsessive drive to create operating systems for computers. Well, that and IBM’s refusal to see that computers could use good operating systems.

However, it stands to reason that Bill Gates is still Bill Gates. Anti-social and mostly uneducated. He’s basically Greta Thunberg with a wallet.

There has clearly been a large outbreak of ClimatePox. Symptoms include wailing, teeth-gnashing, sackcloth and ashes, along with hallucinations and visions of impending doom. One remedy is WUWT, but the afflicted have an aversion to truth and common sense, so avoid it like the plague.

Did he offer studies to support the claim or is it just his opinion? If it’s his opinion without science to support it, then he’s not a professor/researcher. I though that Bill Gates dropped out from college, when did he get his PhD in microbiology and where can we see his dissertation published project/papers??

“few days ago the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) edited their Monkeypox page to alter the narrative in a few key ways.
Firstly, they removed a paragraph from the “How do you get Monkeypox?” section.
Up until a few days ago, according to archived links, the Monkeypox page said this, regarding person-to-person tranmission [emphasis added]:

It’s very uncommon to get monkeypox from a person with the infection because it does not spread easily between people.

…this has now been totally removed.
Secondly, they’ve removed this paragraph, which was present up until at least November of 2021 (and maybe much more recently, there are no archives between November and May) [emphasis added]:

[Monkeypox] is usually a mild illness that will get better on its own without treatment. Some people can develop more serious symptoms, so patients with monkeypox in the UK are cared for in specialist hospitals.

The new “treatment” paragraph reads [again, emphasis added]…

Treatment for monkeypox aims to relieve symptoms. The illness is usually mild and most people recover in 2 to 4 weeks […] You may need to stay in a specialist hospital, so your symptoms can be treated and to prevent the infection spreading to other people.

So, they remove that it will “get better on its own”, and again reinforce the idea of spreading the disease despite this being described as “very uncommon” as recently as last week.
They even add a line about self-isolating, which was never mentioned before:

as monkeypox can spread if there is close contact, you will need to be isolated if you’re diagnosed with it.

Finally, they now include a warning you can get Monkeypox by eating undercooked meat, which will doubtless feed into the anti-meat narrative too (oh, wait, it already is).
To sum up, history is being re-written a little here.
Before, monkeypox “did not spread easily between people”. Now it does.
Before, monkeypox would “get better on its own without treatment”. Now it won’t.
It’s early days to say that Monkeypox is going to be the “new Covid”, and maybe this rollout will stall and be forgotten in a couple of weeks, but there’s no doubt they are taking some tips from the Covid playbook so far”
