People have caught the ‘green bug’ — an infection with enthusiasm for recycling. This has extended into health care environments where some inappropriate recycling can be observed.
For example certain plastics and containers are recycled, or inappropriately transferred from patient rooms to be reused in other patient rooms. This is a danger for the spread of infection, and the rampant spread of staph and clostridium infections may be resulting from this and other bad practices. Some health care employees cannot be dissuaded from these practices.
Above linked is a news story about a pediatric clinic in Colorado, (Med Peds Clinic of Fort Collins) where some enterprising employee decided to recycle half used syringe doses of flu vaccine.
Those syringes (to a normal health care worker) are single use items. Even if it had been appropriate to use half of the dose, the remainder should have been tossed out in the biohazardous waste.
Instead the medical assistant changed the needles on the syringe and recycled.
So……. a lot of kids have apparently received half flu doses, and may have been exposed to infection from other patients. There is a practice of pulling back a bit on the syringe, when injecting a vaccine, to make sure it’s not being shot directly into a blood vessel.
Above is that little eco- reminder that divorced couples multiply the households x 2 and therefore increase the stress on the planet.
Al Gore and Tipper are going to need more gigantic properties, as they are separating after 4o years of marriage. Pharmer estimates the Gores to inflict at least 30 times the negative impact on the planet as the usual divorcing couple. Neither is projected to shack up with another, to reduce the impact, as their associates claim that there was no precipitating affair.
Tipper, who has an abiding interest in mental health issues, might have become exasperated with Al for refusing to take his meds. His persistent clinging to the Global warming issue, long known to be fradulent, as well as his claim that the earth is 1 million degrees at its core (20 time hotter than the sun) indicated increasing departure from reality. Just a little armchair, amateur psycho-analysis…..
Why the flip presentation of this couple in the throes of post mental-pause distress??
Could it be…….. the damage caused by Al Gore enriching himself from the global warming fraud, while injuring the economic and social conditions of billions of humans in the developed and developing world -just has Pharmer in a cranky mood.
Intelligence Quarterly states that there’s no evidence to substantiate the rumor.
There IS evidence to substantiate the rumor that our environmentalists and whacked out government think that the Russians, Chinese, Mexico, Brazil, and everyone else will impact the environment less when They drill for oil, and we should just let them have it all.
