With the environment....all flights to China have stopped, and internally, at a time when there would be a massive amount of movement due to the new year, this has also largely stopped. Meaning less CO2 emissions etc. Just one way of looking at it.

I mean, China is the largest CO2 emitter.........I mean maybe it's just occured at a convinient time. Maybe the Chinese started it themselves so they wouldn't be scapegoated for emissions. I've also heard suggestions in certain circles that it could even be an act of terrorism, by Islamists in retaliation to the forced detention of Uighur and Kazakh Muslims in Xinjiang. Knowing China and its record with transparency, we will probably never know for sure.

the Islamist groups have somehow funded research into coronavirus and mutated it in such as to cause pathology in human beings? 🤔

I recommend a biology textbook and less internet.

Perhaps it will cause mass population deaths in China, reducing human population; this whole thing will go in favour of vegans/environmentalists. 1) This was most likely started by meat. 2) Was spread by flying.

It will only reduce CO2 emissions temporarily. The people killed by the virus will remain dead

As morbid as it sounds, I've always said that some kind of plague will be needed at some point to balance the population out. People will die due to rising sea levels etc.

And tempoarily will still be good. If a lot of people do die, china's emissions will fall.

It's harsh, but maybe this will serve as a lesson to China: 1), stop eating obscure types of meat and regulate the meat industry more, 2) sort your population out

Heartless, not just "harsh". People do what they can to survive, particularly in rural China. I haven't seen any evidence of how the virus occurred - have you, or are you just engaging in xenophobic stereotyping?

The eating of 'unusual' meats likely has **** all to do with how this has happened.

But you are a crank and so this sort of nonsense is to be expected

This wasn't in rural china, this was in urban China.

"The new coronavirus is thought to have emerged from illegally traded wildlife at a seafood market in Wuhan and can now spread between people."

Somehow "wildlife" doesn't sound like sirloin steak or a leg of lamb or chicken does it?
