I recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

Too oversimplify the main fuel source before industrialization was wood and plant matter being burnt on mass.
Also synthetic fertilizers are a factor
and plants love CO2.

Probably some other stuff I am forgetting but that is the gist of it.

We ain't your personal search butlers, if you were asking for request.

I would also argue that the video you posted doesn't fit within this thread (it isn't a educational video, it is a conspiracy documentary) and would probably fit better in the documentary thread.

Was looking up how to read machinist blue prints and this was somehow the best video I have seen on the topic because it actually just gets straight to the point and directly to the information I wanted.

Armed with this knowledge I just might be able to pull of the project I have in mind.

At least the video *explains* why it is dangerous and what to do instead of reporting numbers infected/dead.
Before this, I didn't know why ventilators were needed.

It's not dangerous. It's no worse than the flu. Most people never even develop symptoms.

Bubonic plague had a mortality rate of over 50%. The Chinese Flu has a mortality rate of less than 1%. It's really not that bad.

 No.54512

>>54505
With modern medicine the bubonic plague would have a very low mortality rate. If corona was around 100 years ago it would be really scary, probably much worse than the spanish flu and depending on how well an imunization works or how well immunity builds up it still could be if this thing sticks around for a couple of decades.

>If corona was around 100 years ago it would be really scary
If corona was around 10 years ago it would be treated the same way swine flu was. Without widespread internet literacy the whole "shut down society" thing is kind of impossible. Unless you want people to actually start starving to death.

We have modern medicine now. It's kind of stupid to pretend that this disease is any real threat at all to society when the mortality rate is so low and like 40% of people don't even get any symptoms. In the past, reality would keep media panic loops like this in check, but now that the internet is a thing I suppose we have to look forward to a recession and bureaucrats rushing to erode civil liberties as quickly as possible every time a mildly scary new disease pops up.
