More Livestock Deaths
While so many people are in denial about the Climate Crisis, livestock in Wales is dying. That’s due to the strangest Winter for many a long year.
You will know about the thousands of sheep and lambs which died, mainly in North-East Wales, due to the heavier-than-normal snows. Those snows were much later than normal, too.
This week, we heard of wild ponies – left free to wander the moors – dying due to the strange weather days. Those animals are, according to a report I heard, of a very ancient breed. It is a breed from which many thoroughbred horses have stemmed.
And it is due to unusual weather. Do not be fooled: we are in Climate Crisis.
Measles, from what I remember from my own childhood, is not a very pleasant disease. It can leave the patient with brain-damage, impaired eyesight and other very debilitating things.
And there is a measles epidemic in Swansea. Sadly, one Swansea man has died due to the disease.
The epidemic seems to be spreading, too – across South Wales and into Mid-Wales. So MMR jabs are being offered in those areas. Schools are involved in the publicity.
However, it seems that parents are not responding to the news of either the epidemic or of the MMR jabs being offered.
Yes, I know the dangers of such injections have been publicised. But should not parents really think about the whole thing and act upon what their own common sense tells them? It’s mainly children who are at risk.
