At the very beginning of my coverage of the “China epidemic,” I cited evidence that the air quality in Wuhan is chronically dangerous.

Among other sources, I referred to a Yale review which stated that the mixture of toxic elements in the air is unprecedented in human history. The synergistic effects of these individual toxins is unknown.

I also mentioned the large street protests against air quality in Wuhan that took place last summer. These protests were also carried out in other Chinese cities. The government was obviously alarmed at the nascent rebellion.

Those protests are now gone. Because the cities are locked down. It’s all about “the virus” as the cause of illness.

Horrific air quality brings on lung infections of all kinds, including pneumonia. Pneumonia is THE illness attributed to the coronavirus. How convenient.

The Chinese government has recently ruled that testing patients for the coronavirus isn’t necessary for a diagnosis of “epidemic illness.” A CT scan of the lungs is sufficient. If the patient thus shows signs of pneumonia, he is labeled “a coronavirus case.”

Air quality? Brushed aside.

Assessing studies of annual pneumonia deaths in China—covering years long before the supposed emergence of the new human coronavirus—I settled on the estimate of 300,000 deaths a year.

Assuming this death rate is more or less constant, hundreds of thousands of people could now be called deceased “coronavirus cases” without a flicker of interest in the actual cause of their illness. Those CT scans, picking up signs of pneumonia, and absurdly leading to the label “coronavirus,” are a perfect tool for deception.

Recently, I found an article from capitalcambodia.com, dated February 7, 2020: “‘Polluted air’ could be an important cause of Wuhan pneumonia”. It makes some interesting comments about Wuhan air quality. The article also speculates that “the virus” is carried on particulate pollutants, a claim I find completely unsupported—but the remarks about pollution are worth repeating:

“…three factors. First, the increase of static wind in the horizontal direction, which is not conducive to the diffusion and dilution of atmospheric pollutants. Second, the emergence of a temperature inversion layer in the vertical direction, which makes it difficult for pollutants to move upwards and are blocked at low altitudes and near the ground. Third, the increase of suspended particulates in the air. These three conditions are all available during the high incidence period of Wuhan pneumonia.”

“According to data released by the Wuhan Bureau of Ecology and Environment, the moment when a large number of pneumonia cases emerged in Wuhan was during the period from Jan 19, 2020, to Jan 23, 2020, and the Wuhan air during this period was at the stage of serious pollution. The indices are all higher than 100. This means that the outbreak period of Wuhan pneumonia coincides with the severe period of air pollution and this is one of the reasons. The second supporting reason is that the high incidence areas of Wuhan pneumonia coincide with the severe air pollution areas. We observed by randomly taking one day as a sample and found out that the area with the highest level of air pollution in Wuhan was Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market. This shows that even in ‘normal weather’, the air pollution in the seafood market area was the relatively worst area in Wuhan…Therefore, it is not accidental that Wuhan Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market has become a high-incidence area of Wuhan pneumonia…”

You’ll recall that, at first, reports circulated about the coronavirus emerging in that Market and “jumping species from animals to humans.” These reports didn’t mention highly dangerous air pollutants “jumping” into the lungs of humans.

    …without a flicker of interest in the actual cause of their illness. -JR

    This is the great observation and seems widespread. -SG

    Thank you, Jon. It is so clear to see this, just look up! They spray here almost every day in CA. The air is never fresh, smells nasty sometimes, too. Blurry gray/orange cover all the time. Spray day and night at times. Some days starts out not totally covered, but then you can see the lines all over the sky, and it becomes a huge ugly mess. People getting coughs that come and go. Dark eerie sky with no sun. People are blind to what is happening.

    • DL says:

      …and this spraying in CA will lead to more viral illness among the people, as your body/cells make (non-living) viruses to rid/dissolve this inorganic pollution in your lungs. They may be coronaviruses, or adenoviruses, influenza viruses, RSV, and others, whichever are needed by your body. They are your helpers, thank God!

      So sorry to hear of this in your area.. 😔

    “Wuhan and the polluted air as a cause of epidemic illness”

    There is more than one way to pollute the air. And this is not even talking about the air we breathe. Or ‘disease’ itself.

    There is an ‘air’ about our Culture. There is an air about our Nation. There is an air about our World. And just like much of the air that we take in to sustain our lives… these other ‘airs’ have been polluted and made into something unhealthy for good living.

    And for all of these ‘Airs’ there is only one solution: Let Fresh Air In.

    Fresh air to breathe. Fresh air to cleanse our thoughts. Fresh air to improve and humanize our interactions with each other. We must find ways to freshen the air we breathe and that of others we come in touch with. And of course, we must not act to pollute the air ourselves.

    We have countless people in the World fouling our air in various ways. We must be the ones to clean it up all kinds of ways around ourselves and those around us.

    How long has it been since we could breathe deeply and it felt so good?

    I do not think it is air and I am not sure it is vaccine. I have seen 2 persons collapse within 5 minutes, about 1 year ago. Before #diedsuddently was trending. I was cycling and 10m in front of me, a person collapsed than 5min latter, I wanted to cross the street and one car was not stopping (had ~5kmph) then the driver just collapsed with his head hitting the wheel. Next day somebody told me about a person collapsing in front of him in a store.

    Since than, I have not seen/heard somebody collapse here. Something happened than, probably tens of people had problems within days. 5g was turned on?

    There were comments about the polluted air in Wuhan from the beginning and that a large company was looking at this city to do business with Wuhan and they needed to cover up the polluted air and the toxic effect on the people so they did convert the pollution to a pandememic. All to present a false image for the making of more money.

    There have so many factories with so many chenicals and greedily built factories that have polluted much of their waterways near the cities. It is a travesty that the world had to suffer to cover up for the Chinese inability to provide for the health of hteir ciizens in the ciies, to alllow it to progress to 300,000 deaths a year. The chief liars of the owrld will be held accountable for their part in all this in their next judgement since they are untouchable, so it seems, at this level of awareness.

    Did not Bill Clinton give CA to the Chinese in payment of our debt when he was in office. Are they now providing a family homey feel by polluting the air there so the people in CA won’t mind moving out of their way and giving up their homes?

    Great article.

    Dr. Thomas Cowan and Dr. Andrew Kaufman both pointed to air pollution, especially the exhaust from burning genetic corn fuel as suspect Couple that with 5G emf pollution and there you have it!

    As for China — one can surmise that many Chinese people are not impressed with communism since inception. I personally believe many Chinese died resisting communism take over revolution, and still do.

  8. A Reader emailed me the following comment:


    The pollution angle has always been there across the PRC. What I discovered about the same time is that Wuhan was the very first large-scale and fully launched 5G Telecommunications implementation. When I studied the symptoms of 5G radiation poisoning and learned that they were virtually indistinguishable from those of the Coronavirus, I knew that the CCP had pulled out all the stops to take the monopolistic technological lead in the 5G communications revolution, had used the Gain-of-Function Coronavirus Pandemic was being cultivated as a distraction from the greater horrors of 5G.

    What I know now about both 5G and the Coronavirus and of course the Death Jab spin-off makes perfect logical and profoundly disturbing sense. At least think about it.
