THE SKEPTIC ARENA

Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.

Global Warming is speeding up worldwide:

Worst coral reef bleaching event ever

Between atomic weapons, global warming, and a worldwide pandemic
hope for humanity's survival grows dimmer by the hour.
Scientists recently moved the Doomsday Clock
from 2 minutes to Midnight up to 100 seconds to midnight.
Personally, I think they are being a little too optimistic.

Covid-19 tears up the whole body; not just the lungs.

Here's a report linking Covid to increased risk of stroke death

This isn't like a cold or a flu where you return to normal in a couple of weeks.
If the alarmingly high kill-rate doesn't get you (13% in the U.S.)
(by comparison, yearly influenza mortality runs about 0.1%),
surviving it may come with lots of nasty, long-lasting reminders of what you went through.
