Pfizer has announced that they will have 1.3 BILLION doses of their China virus vaccine distributed in 2021. Why has the Alexandria ‘Occasional Cortex‘ crowd NOT been screaming bloody murder about this? Why not a peep from Al ‘I created the Internet’ Gore? Where’s John ‘Swift boat’ Kerry?
Here’s the ‘inconvenient truth‘.
The vaccine needs to be shipped and stored at -70 degrees Celsius. This requires a special freezer that some sources say will cost $20,000.00. Pfizer and the CDC are recommending NOT to buy these specialized freezers. Instead they are recommending a cold storage box that is continually refreshed with cheaply available ‘DRY ICE‘.
What is DRY ICE? It’s Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in a solid form. DRY ICE has a surface temperature of about -109 degrees Celsius and turns into a gas (a process known as sublimation, that is it goes from solid to gas without melting to a liquid) at about -78 degrees Celsius. It’s never a liquid hence the term DRY ICE. Perfect for storing the new vaccine.
The 1.3 BILLION doses will most likely need several POUNDS of DRY ICE to ship and store the vaccine. The DRY ICE (remember it’s CARBON DIOXIDE, CO2) will eventually turn to gas and go, oops, into the atmosphere. BILLIONS of pounds of CO2 will end up in the atmosphere and CO2 is the GREEN HOUSE GAS that causes the “EXISTENSIAL THREAT” to the world according to the Occasional Cortex crowd and all the other alarmists.
Let’s randomly pick a modern country, say SWEDEN. They put out about 26 BILLION pounds of CO2 annually. If it takes 10 pound of DRY ICE to store a dose of vaccine over the whole distribution process, that would be 13 BILLION pounds of CO2 or HALF of the ANNUAL CO2 emission of the COUNTRY OF SWEDEN.
Save the people, kill the world?
Where’s the OUTRAGE?
