I think I have had enough!
ust about everyone has had enough of COVID-19, or C-19, as I call it. It has been nearly 18 months and hopefully we are past this horrible experience. With only 11 cases reported in Manitoba on Monday of this week, it would “appear” that we are through this pandemic. I say “appear” because it could flare up again and I have no doubt there will be another disease that will attack our world. We should have learned that already. In modern times there was the 1918 flu, in the 1950s there was polio. There has been several other diseases more recently like SARS, bird flu, swine flu and ebola. Some disease or another will come again. We should have learned by now how to handle a pandemic. What could we do differently, what could we have done better? I think the biggest things we could have done better is protect our elderly better and more quickly. We should have gone into sanitizing and isolation mode much sooner in the care homes. We should have applied more common sense and allowed a limited numbers of freedoms to volunteers, family members, whoever comes in to help the over-worked care home staff and the very lonely residents. I get it, they wanted to keep C-19 out of the care home but the rules made no sense. Care workers,
maintenance staff, health care aides, etc. all came and went home each day. The staff all intermingled with the regular population at home, at stores, wherever, but somehow that was considered different than a daughter visiting mom and helping out at the care home. It was no different and the extreme isolation should never have happened. The many millions spent on visitor pods were a waste of money in my view. I am also fully convinced some care home residents died of dehydration, loneliness or neglect as the whole volunteer aspect of care was wiped out overnight. It was a stupid decision, a complete over reaction without basis in science or practicality. We should have shut down “all” flights from China right at the outset. It wasn’t racist, it was factual, and should have been done much sooner. Air passengers still came into Canada with all kinds of reasons and excuses. It should have been shut down. If you were out of the country when C-19 hit, get your butt home within a few days or stay where you are. Overall, the government did a pretty good job but now is the time to ascertain what needs to be done better. We needed to have test to tell if a person has had C-19 not just if they have it. If a person has had C-19, they shouldn’t need
RIGHT IN THE CENTRE
Ken Waddell a vaccine. Testing should have been done sooner and maybe over a wider range of people. It will be very interesting to see how much the death rate has actually increased from C-19 over the previous year. There have been a lot of deaths for sure but how many more than other years. We don’t know yet. Surgeries and regular medical tests were cut back way too much. That has caused a lot of stress, lost income for health care specialist and yes, a lot of deaths. We may never know how many. When we add up the increase in deaths over a previous time frame, we will need factor in how many lives were lost due to untreated cancer and heart attacks. Now that we are apparently moving out of the C-19 situation, we need to look at some of the rules that are just plain silly. I am very
happy that we can go to a restaurant and not have to wear a mask while eating with people from another household. I am not happy that if you go to church, you have to wear a mask all through the service even if you are seated with only your own household and are socially distanced from other households. That makes no sense at all. Going forward, masks will likely always be used in Canada. They have been for years in Asian countries. Hopefully they won’t be compulsory. If you are vaccinated why would you have to wear a mask anyway? Hopefully there can be lots of civil discussion about how to do better next time and we can get through our next crisis with less human and financial cost.

Climate Clip #8 floods
As Sir Isaac Newton said, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Meteorologists say the same thing because nature tries to find a balance and weather patterns are no different. As North America has been baking under a heat wave across the world in Germany and China there has been heavy rain and extreme flooding. And as usual, climate alarmists are seizing upon those water inundations as a sign of climate change – oh no – Panic! But they are not. In the cases of Germany and China the rain has indeed been excessive. In both places a month’s worth of rain has fallen within just hours or a few days. Yet this kind of rainfall is historically within normal weather patterns for these areas and should have been expected and prepared for by both governments. They however decided to cover their incompetence by crying “climate change”. In Germany the affected area was the River Ahr, a tributary of the Rhine. According to Dr. Karl August Seel, a German historian, there is a comprehensive history of this type of flooding going back 660 years. There was ample warning: 9 days before the event a satellite flying over the area recorded high water at dams, reservoirs and rivers. Hikers in the area noted that the water levels in the reservoirs were at the very top and that rivers were running high. Weather scientists sent a report to the German authorities stating what was going to happen – one month of rain in two days – exactly what did! It was all ignored. The authorities could have done a controlled release of the high water reservoirs and prevented a lot of the damage and saved many lives. They even failed to warn the citizens about the weather that was coming. The situation in China was somewhat similar. Extreme rain

has fallen in the past but this time citizens were not warned about the effects of an offshore typhoon, two high pressure systems holding a low pressure system in place over Henan province. Zengzhou city sits in the centre of that province at the confluence of the Yellow river, its many tributaries from the south and west, the spillage path of the Danjiangkou reservoir and the drainage path from the mountains on the north, west and southwest edges of the province. The result was predictable. Again insufficient warning and planning caused the catastrophe.. There are many reasons for flooding – here are the usual ones. Lack of Vegetation - plants and trees hold water and allow it to seep into the ground. Too little and the water just rushes over the earth. Infrastructure Failure - drainage systems that are insufficient for the population, water main breaks, dam overflows and failures. Often what was good 50 years ago is now inadequate such as when Katrina hit New Orleans and the old levees broke. In other cases there can be a failure of poor construction design and materials. Too much Development on flood plains and near rivers and oceans. Impermeable surfaces such as roads, concrete structures, over-paving, rock structures, tunnels, highways and lowered expressways. Bridges that slow water discharge, and reduce a river’s capacity to hold water. Flood embankments – steep sides designed to hold more water in rivers slow its discharge and/or break and cause flash flooding. Examples are Houston and Los Angeles. Heavy rains, storm surges, and tsunamis caused by underwater earthquakes. Glacier melt and winters of significant snowfall with cor-

responding heavy spring melting. Urban areas – rooftops funnelling rain onto the paved roads, parking lots, highways and bridges – no permeability means the water has to go somewhere else. Mountain ranges – rain and snow melt will go to the lowest point – valleys, gorges and ravines with the result that there is a very fast rise of water levels in streams, rivers and lakes leading to flash floods. Building cities and towns on swampy land – the iconic example is Venice. Then there is something called a lunar standstill or Moon Wobble. This is a shift that happens approximately every 18 years. Currently we’re in a cycle causing lower high tides and higher low tides than average. This is about to change. NASA tells us that the moon is about to shift its nodal cycle leading to the opposite condition – high tides higher and low tides lower causing more flooding beginning around 2030 for about 10 years. They say “This cyclic shift would happen regardless of any contribution humanity might be making.” H. Sterling Burnett wrote about this in Climate Change Dispatch on July 16, 2021. Of the 12 causes of flooding listed above, 5 were the result of natural weather patterns and 7 were caused by humans – not because of CO2 emissions – but because of a lack of foresight, poor urban planning, greed (using inferior building materials), age of the infrastructure and a lack of just plain old common sense. “It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.” Robert Green Ingersoll

Home Bodies By Rita Friesen A very good day…
n the course of the conversation with my sisters I realised anew that we have different interests and strengths, very different. One of us is creative with quilting, crocheting, knitting, sewing, gardening, food prep- just to name a few. That is not me. Another is a gourmet cook, author, scholar, excels at creating a warm inviting home, researcher and world traveller. Also, not me. I eat and cook to live and keep others alive. I do quilt and have been an accomplished seamstress. My garden brings me pleasure and food, simply practical. I feel more at ease with a chain saw in hand than with a spatula. We are all three gifted orators, some being more comfortable with an audience but all well read and articulate. So where am I going with this? In sharing with my sisters my days activities, I concluded with the statement- it was a very good day. What made it a good day? I started with an early morning walk with my dog. Miss Daisy had not enjoyed as many excursions lately and was a willing partner. We had been working on and in the kitchen- not with food. The wallpaper had been removed, the cracks and crevices filled, the undercoat applied, and this day I got to paint. I did feel out of shape as I twisted and
stretched to paint the areas above the cabinet and then below the cabinet. Moving the fridge and stove was easy, slow, but easy. And having been satisfied with the finished results of the kitchen and dining room painting, I tackled the front door. It is a steel door, and Henry Hoover, in signalling his need to go out, and to come in, had scratched the door down to the metal. In more than one place, on both sides. Having prepped it the day I undercoated the kitchen made it a natural progression for finish work, and then the people door to the garage looked like it could do with some loving. So, breakfast is a given, cold cereal with fruit, and lunch was leftovers, two easy meals, and supper consisted of frozen real meals from a caring family member. So the days intake was as easy as I could ever dream of. That gave me more free time, well, idle time. So we headed out to the acreage at Riding and spent hours watering the gardens, dead heading the f lowers, setting up sprinklers and simply enjoying the wonder of working outdoors. The evening highlight, the Monday evening highlight, was/is the face time with my sisters. It was after recounting this day that I could proclaim – it was a very good day! The challenge than is for them to determine what would make a day a very good day for them. Sister the Younger did not need time to think- working in the yard, then spending a bit of time with her creative hobbies, and then coming up with something tasty for supper. And I wonder- what does tasty have to do with eating? Sister the Elder will answer next week, and I am certain it will contain a visit to a theatre or museum, reading and time with friends. Wishing you all you own very good day!

think the ﬁrst time I read about climate change, it was in a kids magazine called Ranger Rick in the 80s. I questioned my mom about what I’d read and she assured me it would be alright. Throughout time, I’ve looked into climate change, determining it to be a pressing issue. Through receiving my two science degrees, I’ve written a number of papers on climate change using peer reviewed papers, numerous sources from actual scientists and the scientiﬁc community. Climate change used to be called Climate Change Theory and now is called Climate Change Fact in reputable scientiﬁc communities. Climate change unfortunately is real and as a Canadian, per capital, I contribute more green house gasses then 90% of the worlds population. Canada and Australia are probably the two worst countries for harbouring climate denialists. The Liberal party is useless at actually ﬁghting climate change, the Conservative party doesn’t even believe it is an issue and the Greens, your go to for people who want action on climate change, is having an eternal spat on issues in the Middle East. I kinda miss when they were a one trick pony. People who research climate change believe humanity needs no less then a war eﬀort to address and solve the problem of climate change. If you don’t think climate change is an issue you mustn’t need food, shelter, water and most other things humans require for life. The world in the last two years has given us a brief glimpse at what the future will look like and it will get worse. Scientists who have argued for action against climate change, will at least be proven right, even though they all wish they were mistaken. Scientists will probably never receive the submission from climate deniers, no matter how obvious their predictions were, and even today when they are coming true. Intellectuals do not ignore the obvious, by ﬁnding miss-information and irrelevant facts to contradict the truth. The science, let alone with our current news feeds, is mere impossible to deny. I consider climate denialists to be comparable to someone in the hospital dying of covid 19 and still saying it is a hoax. I do not see how people can shut oﬀ their capacity for rational thought to that degree, but I guess it can be done. No matter how much of a case you can build up against the obvious, you will always be wrong. People like Greta Thunberg, Elizabeth May and many others who are pushing for action are coming to the point where they are burnt out. They do not know what to do, it is like pounding your head against a brick wall when dealing with people who are so willing to bury their head in the sand. We have already pretty much wiped out the Great Barrier Reef and there will be many more ecosystems to follow. You might want to ask yourself, what is the harm in not destroying the planet?
