Worst case scenario = We make the world a bit better for nothing. Or cause an irreversible catastrophe.
This feels good rhetoric isn’t actual policy. Also, Covid-19 hass been handled terribly with this shutdown which has caused massive unemployment and destruction of parts of our economy. My sister lost her job through her university which ruined her entire future. She lost her free education for her masters, free summer camp for my nephew, free daycare for my nephew, on top of her healthcare. Many of these jobs will never come back and competition will increase for the jobs that remain. I’m not denying Covid-19 is real, but I will also point out the facts. They count deaths include deaths that are not related to covid as covid related, they put people on ventilators that should not be which kills them, in Sweden they refused to give oxygen to older people and nursing homes who asked for basic oxygen (not ventilators) despite no shortage, and people can’t visit their families in hospital or have a proper funeral. Hospital mistakes were the third leading cause of death before covid-19 even existed now add in hysteria, unknowns, and no family there to keep an eye on the nurses or doctors. The vast majority of Americans have worn masks as directed and followed all the rules all while WHO was self contradicting itself as to say which measures actually work or matter. The policies involved with climate change doomsday are often extremely aggressive and could create extreme problems. Before this pandemic the global economy was producing more than enough food to feed to entire human population with data only pointing to increased production ratios over an already healthy number.
