'I think we need to address greenhouse gas emissions. But I try to get involved in issues were I see a legislative result…So why should I waste my time when I know the people on the left are going to reject nuclear power?'
McCain: 'Why should he talk about climate change when we have got 130,000 people in Syria killed?' "John Kerry and the president, they could be hitting the trifecta here. Gross failure on all three. So he has to go over to Asia and talk about climate change and say it's the most important issue? Hello? On what planet does he reside?" he said Tuesday. McCain coauthored cap-and-trade bills in 2003, 2005, and 2007, but later moved away from focusing on climate and voted in favor of thwarting EPA's greenhouse gas regulations.
The ‘Danmask-19 trial’ was conducted in the spring with over 6,000 participants, when the public were not being told to wear masks but other public health measures were in place. Unlike other studies looking at masks, the Danmask study was a randomised controlled trial – making it the highest quality scientific evidence. ...
In the end, there was no statistically significant difference between those who wore masks and those who did not when it came to being infected by Covid-19. 1.8 per cent of those wearing masks caught Covid, compared to 2.1 per cent of the control group. As a result, it seems that any effect masks have on preventing the spread of the disease in the community is small. ...
The results of the Danmask-19 trial mirror other reviews into influenza-like illnesses. Nine other trials looking at the efficacy of masks (two looking at healthcare workers and seven at community transmission) have found that masks make little or no difference to whether you get influenza or not.
"Fat is converted to carbon dioxide and water. You exhale the carbon dioxide and the water mixes into your circulation until it’s lost as urine or sweat." "If you lose 10kg of fat, precisely 8.4kg comes out through your lungs and the remaining 1.6kg turns into water. In other words, nearly all the weight we lose is exhaled."
"To lose 100 grams of fat, you have to exhale 280 grams of carbon dioxide on top of what you’ll produce by vaporizing all your food, no matter what it is."
