Climate clowns: Corona has produced tons of hazardous waste
Masks, syringes and superfluous vaccine props all end up in our environment. Jab enthusiasts however claim to care about the environment and climate change, but the European statistics office Eurostat has stopped data collection on medical waste generation.

The National Post, a Canadian daily, has suggested that vaccine passports be extended to include a carbon score and Forbes has argued that digital IDs could help mitigate “seismic waste challenges“. The reality of the pandemic is writ large however: A climate catastrophe manufactured by zealous pharmaceutical companies which is costing us our freedom.
“Companies use hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) gasses to freeze vaccines to a very low temperature — minus 70 degrees Celsius for the BioNTech/Pfizer jab […] HFC emissions have a global warming effect up to 23 000 times greater than CO2,” according to Politico. And French officials calculated that up to 30 percent of vaccine doses will be wasted due to logistics constraints.
The Corona pandemic has brought with it all sorts of “side effects”. One of them is plastic garbage. Not only do masses of masks end up on the streets, in forests or on the oceans, but there are also tons of medical waste, so-called “hazardous waste”, as the German newspaper Bild reported.
The WHO is now demanding that disposal strategies be introduced worldwide. “Around 30 percent of all hospitals and medical practices worldwide do not have adequate disposal facilities for syringes, protective clothing and other medical waste,” the WHO is quoted as saying.
Rubbish and risk
In addition to the problem of accumulated rubbish, the staff who come into contact with the objects are “exposed to the risk of injury, for example from syringes and other contaminated instruments”. In addition, populations could be endangered by contaminated water, disease-carrying pests and the like.
Too many people carelessly and ruthlessly just drop their rubbish, no longer care or pretend that someone is cleaning up after them. But the garbage remains, is deposited in nature and mainly washed into the oceans.
A scientific study has found that extra garbage has also landed there since the Corona pandemic – namely countless masks, gloves and other protective equipment including tests. The Daily Mail cited researchers from California using a computer model to simulate the fate of plastic waste when it leaves beaches, floats along the waterfront and breaks into pieces.
They estimate that from the start of the pandemic to August 2021, 8,4 million tons of pandemic-related plastic waste was generated in 193 countries. Nearly three-quarters — 71 percent — are likely to be washed up on beaches by the end of 2021, the model predicted.
Most of the Covid-related plastic comes from medical waste generated by hospitals, the researchers say. That dwarfs the contribution of packaging from online shopping giants like Amazon and eBay.
The study was led by a team of researchers from Nanjing University’s School of Atmospheric Sciences and UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
“Plastic waste harms marine life and has become a major global environmental problem,” the study underscored. “The Covid-19 pandemic has led to increased demand for single-use plastic, adding pressure to an already out-of-control problem. This poses a long-standing problem for marine life and is mainly accumulated on beaches and coasts.”
Asian rivers are the main contributors
Most of the plastic waste ends up in the oceans via the rivers. Asian rivers account for 73 percent of all plastic emissions, with the three largest contributors being the Shatt al-Arab, Indus and Yangtze rivers, which empty into the Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea and East China Sea.
European rivers account for 11 percent of runoff, with minor contributions from other continents.
The pandemic has generated tens of thousands of tons of hazardous medical waste, the World Health Organization admitted. It has called for countries to implement disposal strategies and improve existing measures to dispose of medical waste.
Around 30 percent of all hospitals and medical practices worldwide do not have adequate disposal facilities for syringes, protective clothing and other medical waste, it said. In the poorest countries, even 60 percent of medical facilities could not fall back on waste management, which is necessary for proper disposal of Corona waste.
According to the information, protective clothing and equipment weighing around 87 000 tons were delivered to various countries from March 2020 to November 2021 by a UN initiative alone. In addition, more than eight billion doses of vaccine against Covid-19 have been administered by injection. Most of these instruments and materials were treated as garbage after use.
Graphene masks are toxic
France has meanwhile suspended the distribution of FFP2 masks containing graphene. The French Agency for Health Security (Anses) announced on January 14 the suspension pending a risk assessment. In April of last year, Canada also withdrew graphene masks.
Anses recommended the use of graphene-free masks “due to the lack of information on the graphene used by manufacturers and on the toxicity of this substance, especially in the long term” since ” the objectives pursued by manufacturers by adding graphene to masks “are neither stated nor demonstrated”.
Sadly no mask can filter the entry or exit of viruses, but the FFP2 masks are the most recommended by “experts” and ordinary citizens have been forced to wear them when working. Ironically, the same governments who pretend to care about “clean air” have dictated the wearing of toxic masks.

EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
