Ashland, Medford & Southern Oregon News

World on Fire | Charles Eisenstein

Brazil’s Pantanal is the world’s largest tropical wetland, covering an area nearly the size of Britain. Only today, it isn’t so wet. After a summer of drought, catastrophic fires are raging that have devastated 2.4 million hectares of land already this year. (That’s more than has burned in California, Oregon, and Washington combined.) Its precious wildlife, including the world’s largest population of jaguars, are suffering irreparable damage. What’s causing the destruction? The proximate causes seem quite different from what is causing the fires in California, but if we trace them back through enough layers, we get to the same deep cause and, therefore, to the same deep solution. Since 2019, catastrophic fires have afflicted the Amazon, the Congo basin, Australia, Siberia, Argentina, and countless other places. While some on the political Right were in denial that anything unusual was happening, today the entire political spectrum is in agreement that something is horribly amiss. In the US, the Right offers candidate explanations like poor forest management, while Democratic politicians emphasize climate change. What they both agree on is that the current state of affairs in abnormal, unacceptable, and requires action. This, at least, is progress. In fact, both sides are approaching the same truth from different directions. Let me start at forest management, pass through climate change via a back door, visit the blatantly criminal behavior behind fires in the Amazon and Pantanal, and arrive finally at the core of the issue.

Jackson Wellsprings ignored evacuation order to stay and save 'sacred land' | KTVL

A group of residents at Jackson Wellsprings off of Highway 99 in Ashland decided not to follow the evacuation order issued during the Almeda Fire, instead they decided to stay and pump water from their pool to fight the fire away from the property. Owner, Gerry Lehrburger said the thought to leave never even crossed his mind. "No, it was out of the question. We were here. This is our home, this is our sacred land," Lehrburger said. Kevin Decker, the facility's gatekeeper, said once it became clear the fire was heading their way they made the decision to stay.

Humans Wiped Out Two-Thirds of the World’s Wildlife in 50 Years | Smart News | Smithsonian Magazine

Two major reports released this month paint a grim portrait of the future for our planet’s wildlife. First, the Living Planet Report from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), published last week, found that in half a century, human activity has decimated global wildlife populations by an average of 68 percent. The study analyzed population sizes of 4,392 monitored species of mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, and amphibians from 1970 to 2016, reports Karin Brulliard for the Washington Post. It found that populations in Latin America and the Caribbean fared the worst, with a staggering 94 percent decline in population. All told, the drastic species decline tracked in this study “signal a fundamentally broken relationship between humans and the natural world,” the WWF notes in a release.

Lack of forest management allowed 'fuels to accumulate', expert says | KATU

A big question a lot of people have -- did the fires have to be this bad? Some experts told KATU that better land management outside of fire season could have prevented the fires from spreading so rapidly through dense woods. The bottom line is there is no way to prevent wildfires, especially given the weather conditions. However, a spokesperson for the Oregon Department of Forestry and an Oregon State College of Forestry professor agreed that better forest management can reduce the severity of fires. Right now, nearly one million acres are burning across Oregon and entire communities are flattened in some cases.

New Climate Maps Show a Transformed United States | ProPublica

According to new data from the Rhodium Group analyzed by ProPublica and The New York Times Magazine, warming temperatures and changing rainfall will drive agriculture and temperate climates northward, while sea level rise will consume coastlines and dangerous levels of humidity will swamp the Mississippi River valley. Taken with other recent research showing that the most habitable climate in North America will shift northward and the incidence of large fires will increase across the country, this suggests that the climate crisis will profoundly interrupt the way we live and farm in the United States. See how the North American places where humans have lived for thousands of years will shift and what changes are in store for your county.

WHO now deems your child’s presence in school as informed consent to vaccinate them (it’s called ‘implied consent’) | Rangitikei Environmental Health Watch

The World Health Organization, which is the medical epicenter of the depopulation lobby, now considers your child’s presence in school informed consent to vaccinate that child. Depopulation by vaccination is now fully outside the law and will sterilize, sicken and dumb down every child on earth but the children of the depop lobby members who don’t vaccinate their children.

The Deception of Virology | Why Coronavirus Is Not Contagious | The Bernician

Firstly, viruses are not living organisms or living microbes. They do not have a respiratory system, nor do they have a nucleus or digestive system. Viruses are not alive and viruses are not contagious. The fear behind Coronavirus, for instance, is wholly unwarranted. Forget everything you think you know about viruses and bacteria. You have been lied to. ​The science of virology is based upon the study of viruses. However, no real footage of viral activity exists (except for a recently released (2018) short footage of an HIV virus which shows merely 20% of the virus theory process). Such footage is merely 3D animation and models. Scientific Encyclopedia states viruses have been obtained for experimentation by means of extremely powerful centrifuges which must be specially built. Viruses are so small that they average around 0.1 microns in size for a typical virus.​

There Are Two Strains of COVID-2019—But Is One Actually Deadlier Than the Other? | The National Interest

On March 3, 2020, Dr. Xiaolu Tang and his colleagues at Peking University and other institutions published a study in the National Science Review which caused a stir in a world preoccupied by the inexorable spread of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-2019). From cases identified in China and abroad, he and his colleagues had identified two distinct strains of the virus. 

UN REPORT: Covid-19 Lockdown-Related Hunger Kills 10,000 Children Per Month, Throws 140 Million Into Extreme Poverty | Fort Russ

As the coronavirus plandemic and its restrictions are pushing already hungry communities over the edge, COVID-19-linked hunger is leading to the deaths of 10,000 more children per month over the first year of the pandemic, according to an urgent call to action from the United Nations. Now as lockdowns and international trade routes disrupt vital aid supplies, the UN has warned that the coronavirus pandemic could have an intergenerational effect on the health of millions of children, Daily Sabah reported. Based on the worst-case scenario written by the UN experts, nearly 180,000 children could die this year alone where the pandemic could cause young children to miss 50% of their nutritional care and treatment services. Further, more than 550,000 additional children each month are being struck by what is called wasting, according to the UN – malnutrition that manifests in spindly limbs and distended bellies. Wasting and stunting can permanently damage children physically and mentally, transforming individual tragedies into a generational catastrophe.

Diversity consultants hardest hit: Trump BANS ‘race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating’ in US government agencies & contractors | RT USA News

After multiple agencies ignored a White House memo against using ‘critical race theory’ in diversity training, US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order banning such sessions altogether as ‘destructive’. It “shall be the policy of the United States not to promote race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating in the Federal workforce or in the Uniformed Services, and not to allow grant funds to be used for these purposes,” Trump said in an executive order signed on Tuesday evening While the order does not mention ‘critical race theory’ by name, it cites a “destructive ideology” that is “rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country,” viewing some people as oppressors simply on account of their race or sex and treating “racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.” The order cites numerous instances of such ideology being promoted to employees of federal government agencies and in government-funded institutions. It cites several examples brought up by researcher Christopher Rufo, including the Sandia National Laboratories nuclear facility and the Treasury Department. Trump’s order comes just a day after Rufo raised the alarm about the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Veterans’ Affairs Administration (VA) proceeding with plans for “diversity” seminars, despite a memo from the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) instructing government agencies not to do so. The executive order goes beyond just government agencies, banning the promotion of such beliefs in the US military and among all federal contractors – directly affecting hundreds of companies, both large and small. Colleges and universities supporting critical race theory also stand to lose federal grants, under the terms of Trump’s EO

Octopus Escapes Aquarium Through 160-Foot Drainpipe Into the Sea | Return to Now

Determined to find his way to freedom, an octopus named Inky apparently broke out of his tank, slithered across an aquarium floor and slid through narrow drain pipe into to the ocean.
