How can the NHS tackle climate change when it can’t even treat its own patients?


THE Net Zero agenda has swiftly penetrated the NHS, the inaccessible health service now being welded to climate action and Covid-19 interventions to form an ideological triumvirate of duplicity designed to crack our collective psyche and eventually instil total obedience to the State.

A recent press release from the Department of Health and Social Care announced the commitment of all UK health services to ‘become net zero and build climate resilience through the COP26 Health Programme’, as health systems alone are said preposterously to be responsible for ‘five per cent of global emissions’.

The chief government propagandist of late, the Health Secretary, had this to say: ‘As a health community, we cannot simply sit on the sidelines – we must respond to climate change through urgent action.’

Once again, by fixating solely on some utopic vision of the future, Sajid Javid refuses to address the current dire state of the NHS, which at this very moment is sitting on the sidelines of the only thing it was ever designed to protect: the nation’s health. How can it possibly now attempt to tackle climate change when it can’t even process its own almost 6million-deep backlog of patients?

Mr Health Secretary, all I hear from you is this:

‘Democracy is too decadent and weak to combat the myriad threats to humanity we continue to face, and therefore it can have no place in the post-Covid International Order. If models show that the decades to come shall be characterised by one public emergency after another, then in accordance government must continue to act as if having been granted permanent emergency powers over its citizens. (Disclaimer: All emergencies shall be of the State’s own invention. Brace yourselves.)’

Using initial government investment of over £280million, the DHSC hopes to create a ‘zero-emission fleet, with the world’s first zero-emission ambulance capable of travelling 300 miles before being charged’, and a plethora of additional ‘climate-smart healthcare’, alongside the construction of 48 new low-carbon hospitals by 2030, built to ‘net zero healthcare building standards’.

Mr Health Secretary, what exactly are you proposing for climate-smart healthcare in this public-health-emergency epoch of yours: wind-powered chemotherapy? Carbon-free radiography? Compostable hips? Solar-powered defibrillators? Wicker spinal braces? I already don’t rate my chances of receiving prompt critical treatment from a healthcare system whose own spine has been removed under cover of the current fake crisis, let alone in several years when ambulances are horse-drawn and more money is spent on attempting to maintain lawns on hospital roofs than in increasing bed capacity.

I do wish for all our sakes that just for once, Mr Javid, if only even for a second, you would rejoin the real world, where your endorsement of Disneyesque health objectives has utterly ruinous and heart-breaking consequences for those made of flesh, blood and morals, not Westminster stone.

The UK Health Security Agency has also joined the fray, as apparently climate change is now ‘one of the most challenging health security threats we face’.

With a recent UKHSA blog post it marks the beginning of what will no doubt be a regular feature of its modelling from now on, climate-related death statistics: ‘In Summer 2020 we saw 2,556 all-cause excess deaths (excluding deaths from Covid-19) during episodes of heat.’

How are we to trust the same agency which is overtly fiddling vaccine statistics to conceal the product’s inefficacy, when it starts spouting wildly spurious mortality data it considers to be caused by the ‘extreme weather event’ that is a tame British summer?

Via the unremitting fear dribbling from the three-mouthed mutant that is the UKHSA, DHSC and the NHS, autumn and winter have already been reclassified the death season. Not only does it now appear that summer will likewise be tarred with the State’s mortality-brush, but the UKHSA is even openly admitting that it is already making the case for climate-based protective interventions such as ‘modifying [the public’s] behaviour’.

It goes on to discuss the increased risk of mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile Virus, dengue, chikungunya and Zika emerging in the UK as temperatures rise, the increased risk of foodborne pathogens likewise, on top of the threat of air pollution.

It all sounds rather comically hare-brained, yet the lunatic union of healthcare, climate change and a virus designed, released and then politicised, will have a devastating impact on personal freedoms in spite of how asinine the combined ideology appears. Covid-19 has already proved just how much self-determination one campaign alone can crush under its boot, and that boot now has spikes.

The DHSC is already telling the nation to open windows for ten minutes every hour this winter to let out the ‘Covid smoke’ it says builds up as people talk. This would likewise be laughable were it not for the fact that millions will indeed follow this advice with the same nauseating obedience they accord to face-covering guidance. They will be the same people who keep their windows closed in summer for fear of being suffocated by air pollution, or contracting malaria.

This country has become an interventionist circus, each act more ludicrous than the last. The problem is that the government is the audience and we are the clowns.
