Of Course: Newsweek Clowns Link Ebola and So-Called ‘Climate Change’

This may well be the dumbest thing we’ve seen so far today, but it’s still early. A lot of lefties are still sleeping and dreaming up new idiocies sure to come.

“Humans are the major driver of emerging diseases,” says Jonathan Epstein, an epidemiologist at the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance who studies Ebola and other infectious disease. “Things like agricultural expansion and deforestation…and certainly travel and trade — these are things that manipulate our environment and allow pathogens to get from animal hosts to people and then travel around the world.”

In a study published in 2012, researchers asked national infectious disease experts in 30 different countries whether or not they thought climate change would affect infectious disease patterns in their countries. The majority agreed.

Nevertheless, it’s unclear whether these beliefs are driven by good science, or, as Malcolm Gladwell argued way back in 1995, a guilt-driven “idea of disease as a punishment for wickedness.”

Or by junk science and a desire to control every aspect of your lives.

And there is, according to the World Health Organization, a recent global increase in infectious diseases that seems to correspond with rising global temperatures. But determining whether there is a direct causative relation between the two is a hazy business.

Despite all evidence to the contrary they still claim temperatures are rising, when they obviously are not. Yet the media just keeps repeating the lies.

    I suspect the “Liberian national” who was infected was “visiting” the United States the same way that many Central Americans are “vising” this country.

    They said he was vising family, but I noticed they conveniently stated that his family is “living in the United States”. It seems like a unnecessarily long way of describing family members if they were Americans.

    I guess they could be ‘Legal Residents’ of the US. But why wouldn’t they immediately make that clear in press reports?

    Didn’t “Newsweek” sell for a dollar? I see they aren’t interested in increasing their value.

    Thanks for the laugh first thing in the morning.
