Professor Jeffrey Sachs on COVID-19:

I'm pretty convinced it came out of US lab biotechnology

Professor Jeffrey Sachs, who for two years chaired the Covid-19 commission established by the prestigious medical journal The Lancet, has said he is convinced that the deadly virus did not come out of nature.

World-renowned economist and author Professor Jeffrey Sachs has said that he was "pretty convinced" Covid-19 did not come from nature but rather was an accidental release "out of US lab biotechnology."

Professor Sach's view lends further support for the need for an independent international invesigation into US bio labs run by the US military in numerous nations surrounding China and Russia. [ See previous China Environment Net articles linked below].

He was speaking at a conference hosted by the think tank GATE Center, in Spain, on 15 June 2022. While introducing this “provocative statement,”

Sachs suggested that he formed this view after being "in the loop" as he chaired the Covid-19 commission at The Lancet. “So it’s a blunder, in my view, of biotech, not an accident of a natural spillover,” he reiterated.

Attached is a link to an extract of Professor Sachs speaking to the conference in Spain last month:

Why am I not surprised

IMO it is very important not to simply infer from Sachs’ proclamation that he is some kind of “whistleblower”….. On face value, pointing at US lab as source SEEMS pretty “dissident”… however… since he quickly goes ON to say ( in video of the talk) it was a “blunder” a “biotech accident” he is ALSO conceivably doing “damage control” to distract from the likelihood of deliberate “leak” ( so actual bioweapon). If Fort Detrick is the location of this “accident” …. was it also a ( “convenient”) “accident” that military personnel from Fort Detrick headed off soon after to WUHAN for Military Games…. IMO a deliberate release as a strategy to hit China economically would explain a LOT …..( so many dots joining far to long for this comment) It is SO unlikely that someone of his ilk just gets away with CASUALLY ( see video) making this sort of announcement AND it gets unfettered media traction… unless staged damage control (Go on … call me a “conspiracist” 😄 )

# **Facebook messing around with how Groups work, again !**

The Facebook oligarchs are making changes which could have the effect of weakening the ability of groups to define their purpose, scope and audience. 

Facebooks agenda is beyond our control, and you may notice some changes under their new participation model. Because of this, we have renamed our member rules to participation rules, but the ***content remains unchanged**.* Similarly, the member questions have become participation questions.

The particpation question is required for new participants who wish to post and comment:

**PARTICIPATION QUESTION  
**
Question 1

**NOTE: By participating in this group you CONFIRM you have read and ACCEPTED the groups rules. Participation includes posting and commenting.**
* I confirm my acceptance of the rules;
* I acknowledge that my particpation is at the absolute discretion of the groups Administrators;
* I understand that if I have not confirmed my acceptance of the rules, I may not be able to post or comment.

Oh FFS what next?? Chrissake.

Oh dear the fascbook finally got you guys …. Our group had that shitty system imposed on us a while back … the MOST annoying thing is anyone can “join” the group. The “participation” questions only kick in when the unfettered hitherto invisible “joiners” try to comment or post… which hence under the new system, is the only chance to vett. 😳🙄

# **South-South cooperation: China helps 38 developing countries vulnerable to climate change to face challenges of green transition**

**China takes concrete action to tackle global warming through cooperation**. **Small island states, which are particularly vulnerable to global warming, are among China’s major concerns.**

The past two months have seen China taking a series of concrete actions to enhance South-South climate cooperation, namely projects among developing nations.

China has reached 43 agreements with 38 countries on South-South climate cooperation. Aside from allocating 1.2 billion yuan ($178 million) for such cooperation China has offered training programs to about 2,000 officials and technicians in climate-related posts from 120 countries.

Yes. And the so called G7 represents the world. The gall and hypocrisy. Basically the old colonialist gang that plunder the world. 😠

Argentina and Iran to join BRICS

In 2022 the GDP Purchasing Power Parity (PPP ) of the 5 existing members of BRICS was greater than that of the G7 bloc.

Iran and Argentina seek to join the major economic bloc of Brazil-Russia-India-China-South Africa, known as BRICS.

Argentina has applied to join BRICS. President Alberto Fernandez on Friday urged the creation of cooperation mechanisms that could represent the alternative to ostensibly private institutions run by – and in the interest of – the West.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has also officially submitted its application to join the group of five leading economies made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, the foreign ministry in Tehran announced on Monday. The move comes after the Iranian president addressed the BRICS summit last week.

What is Purchasing Power Parity?

"Purchasing power parity (PPP) is a form of exchange rate that takes into account the cost of a common basket of goods and services in the two countries compared. Thus, the PPP between any two currencies is the measure of the actual purchasing power of those currencies at a given point in time for buying a given basket of goods and services.

As the World Bank explained in its 2002 report The International Comparison Programme and Purchasing Power Parities, the PPP for, say, the Indonesian rupiah against the U.S. dollar is defined as the number of rupiahs needed to buy, in Indonesia, the same amount of goods and services as $1 (U.S.) would buy in the United States." (Encyclopedia of Social Measurement, 2005)

👏👏👏👏What more can I say🤙🏽

BRICS AI?

More countries in Latin America and Middle East should join.

North Korea is yet to join.

BRICSIA ! ❤️

High time for the developing world to expand and throw a challenge to a world dominated by a bullying US. Enough is enough.

Best news ever 👍

Watch out for the head of the evils to use BRICS as a casus belli fooling its proxy to create a WW3.

Good news
