14:07 Or you know, that European colonialism and its modern-day continuants are what's causing this rapid rate of deforestation among other things, in the first place. Might wanna acknowledge that somewhere in the video, John that Indigenous people all over the world have had to be on the front lines in fighting off the fuck-ups that entitled white people made centuries ago and continue to make to this day.

Between overconsumption, overpopulation, climate change, poor resource distribution, etc., you'd figure there'd be more than one scientist not so upset with the pandemic.. especially since humans seem completely unable/unwilling to control our consumption and populations. Blaming exotic pets is ridiculous-- all you do is force people to buy such off the black market instead of from a breeder that's NOT taking animals from the wild. Captive breeding programs for the pet industry has also saved a couple species from total extinction due to human overpopulation. Maybe we should just stop messing with natural selection and let the dumbest of us die off.

If you really want to sweat with nervousness through the night while biting your fingernails bloody, there's been news the last few years of researchers finding pathogens in glaciers/ice sheets (that have been melting due to climate change and dumping their contents into the oceans) that are thousands of years old and that human beings no longer have resistance to. Happy sleeping y'all!

My selfish statement for the year: I have peace of mind knowing that as a childless guy in my 50's I probably won't be around to experience the earth finally swallow up humanity. Unfortunately, I think that day is fast approaching. And if I am, I will fondly remember my journey since the days of rotary phones, playing outside until dusk, and b&w TVs.... and not feel cheated.

We ARE nature..with or without resources to survive..if we aren't respecting 'the wild', then we won't be worthy of anything wild..but humans aren't 'the opposite' to earth..we ARE animals..just need to find a way to live on it simultaneously sustaining ourselves(which includes complete bio chains). Earth will continue with or without us..either way.

The grim reality is that we can't stop the next novel virus outbreak from happening, as this video showed. But we can stop the next novel outbreak from becoming a pandemic. But in order to do so, it's going to require co-operation from every country on the planet. Any country that has a novel outbreak with no treatment needs to lockdown immediately, and that includes suspending all international travel. While all other nations need to provide the affected nations with plenty of financial aid or assistance to ensure their economy doesn't collapse. We've seen that nations were able to defeat Covid-19 without a vaccine, just look at New Zealand, Australia and Taiwan. It's a far better solution than going into half baked quarantines for a year or two again while we wait for a vaccine.

And what is the main reason for deforestation and land-use change? Growing crops to feed animals instead of people. A whole food plant-based diet for humanity, which of course starts with you, would solve many problems including global warming, hunger, and health issues, and let's not forget pandemics. So let's take personal responsibility and change ourselves instead of blaming others.

The problem is not that prevention measures cost money...the problem is that politicians and lobbyists MAKE money during a crisis. The billionaires could have funded the $2000 COVID relief check and still be richer than before the pandemic. Fix the incentives, and the money will follow.

Why don’t you come out clearly and state that the best thing an individual can do is to stop eating animal products. This reduces the futures pandemic risk as well as climate change. You just curtly discount it. Why don’t and your show crew set a good example and stop eating animals protein yourselves?

"The most effective way would be to close down all wildlife markets, ban factory farming and halt deforestation" are good ideas, let's do that. What's the hold up? "Stopping eating meat altogether and shutting down all state fairs" is going too far. It's definitely the first 3 that will reduce the risk of pandemics 99%.

Tuberculosis is a global pandemic such as the world has never seen. It has been for decades. Just last year 10 million cases were reported and 1.5 million died from it. ONE AND A HALF MILLION! That’s how many people die from it each year! EACH YEAR! It is the “most contagious disease in the history of mankind.” . It is spread from infected people talking, singing, laughing, sneezing, coughing or spitting. It is the most contagious pandemic in world history and has killed tens of million of people worldwide and is going on stronger than ever. . So, why were/are there no tuberculosis pandemic response demands from the WHO, CDC, governments, doctors, or the UN to wear masks, washing your hands? Where are the food shortages, toilet paper shortages, disinfectant shortages due to the tuberculosis pandemic? Where are the job losses, the shut downs, the layoffs because of tuberculosis pandemic? The quarantines, the social distancing because of tuberculosis? Tuberculosis has ALWAYS made flu-viruses like Covid-19 look like the sniffles. So what’s the big to do about Covid-19? New statistics are proving that even the elderly are not as high a risk as previously touted. . There are no knee-jerk reactions to the tuberculosis pandemic as with Covid -19 because masks and all of the above CANNOT STOP IT! In fact, herd mentality history indicates that those ‘preventative measures’ make it much worse. . Covid-19 is real but the toxicity is immensely exaggerated and the mortality rates are purposefully inflated for the sake of monetary greed within the medical profession and for the benefit of liberal politicians and their power grab. . For once, just once, people need to do their own research. There's an elephant in the room and it's called 'tuberculosis', and it’s exposing the lies about Covid.
