Is it 97% on the basis that herd immunization makes your exposure unlikely, so that you’d at best be exposed to a single person that could contract it to you?

Or is it 97% on the basis that you are submerged in an atmosphere full of people sick from measles?

WHO information on these numbers

So either it refers to a clinical trial with a defined exposure, or it referes to empircal data that is based on the conditions in the real world, which critically includes the herd immunity.

Herd immunity is a critical factor and it works exponentially. E.g. from 100% to 95% is less of an issue than from 95% to 90% The critical point for measles is at around 92% to prevent exponential infections. This included the risk for people who are vaccinated

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/0f/Herd_immunity_threshold_vs_r0.svg/768px-Herd_immunity_threshold_vs_r0.svg.png

Measles are among the most contagious diseases. To interpret the graph. Because of the high R rate w.o. immunization, you need 92% immunization rates to have one measle case cause another measle case, e.g. reproduction = 1. You go below and it goes exponential.

Religion zealousy can’t be “it”.

Even the Taliban are now in support of vaccinations.

Anti vaxxers are having a hubris that it hard to find in many other places of the world, but wealthy industrialized countries. I cannot speak for the US, but here in Germany the majority of anti-vaxxers are well educated (but not necessarily smart) upper middle class people, often with links to esoteric believes.

Here in Germany it is usually well educated upper middle class people that are anti vaxxers. Meanwhile supposedely poor and unedcuated people have the highest vaccination rates. It is not an issue of access to education.

You have the same issues with anti vaxxers in countries with universal healthcare though. They also have a distrust of “school medicine” but it is not because of financial worries. Instead it is often people with plenty of money that they put into homeopathics, going to “healers” and other nonsense.

Protestaktionen: Brennende Heuballen und Autoreifen im Allgäu (www.sueddeutsche.de) German

Unbekannte haben rund ein Dutzend Feuer auf Kreisverkehren in den Landkreisen Ostallgäu und Oberallgäu gelegt. In neun Fällen waren dabei in der Nacht auf den Montag Heuballen verbrannt worden, in drei Fällen standen Autoreifen in Flammen. Auch ein Sarg und zwei Galgen wurden bei den schätzungsweise zwölf Brandherden...

Außerdem ist noch Winter.

Der Großteil der Arbeiten fällt zur Saat im Frühling und Ernte im Sommer/Herbst an.

Jokes on them. They pray to Jesus, call him the son of god and make pictures depicting both Jesus and god as white men. This is all against the first three commandments.

Am besten wäre es die Konsum und Lebensweise so zu verändern, dass alle Menschen ein gutes Leben führen können.

Der Planet gibt die Ressourcen dafür her. Dem Argument es gäbe zu viele Menschen, sollten wir uns nicht öffnen. Es wird erst als Nebelkerze missbraucht, und dann um Massenmord zu rechtfertigen.

Und wem teilen sie das mit?

Ist doch etwas anderes, ob ich in einer Diskussion, wo das gerade Thema ist darüber sprche oder als Reaktion auf einen solchen Vorstoß in meinem persönlichen Umfeld reagiere, als wenn ich das mit möglichst Reichweite öffentlich tue.

Auch das hat Grenzen. Durch die Produktivitätsgewinne können wir ggf. weniger Arbeitende haben, um die Alten zu versorgen. Es wird aber ein Minimum an Arbeitskraft gebraucht. Sonst entwertet einfach nur die Währung und wir stehen vor dem selbem Problem.

Es gibt faktisch keine echte Alternative zum Umlagesystem, und das Umlagesystem muss so ausgestaltet werden, dass es mit einer stabilen Bevölkerung klarkommt. Aktienrente o.ä. ist letztlich nur Umlagesystem wobei das Geld von Arbeitenden im Ausland erwirtschaft wird. Wenn es dann trotzdem einen Mangel an Pflegekräften gibt, nützen einem aber auch die fetten Dividenden wenig.

Kinderlose tragen eben nicht am meisten zur Gesellschaft bei.

Wenn man die Menschen auf ihre Arbeitskraft reduziert, was an sich schon limitiert ist, dann schaffen Menschen mit Kindern neue Arbeitskräfte. Das das gut für die Gesellschaft ist, sieht auch der Staat so, denn er investiert ordentlich in die Bildung dieser Kinder. Ein Erwachsenes Kind hat in Deutschland im Schnitt ca. 100.000-200.000 “Investitionen” der Eltern und nochmal ca. 100.000-200.000 “Investitionen” des Staates erhalten. D.h. die Abgaben für Kinderlose müssten im Schnitt um den Betrag höher sein, den der Unterhalt eines Kindes kostest, um hier Gleichheit zu schaffen.

Deine Abgabenlast müsste also um die 5.000-10.000 € im Jahr höher sein, als die eines Elternteils mit zwei Kindern.

Den Investitionen stehen beim Mediangehalt von ca. 44.000 brutto zzgl. AG Anteile 55.000, und AG Gewnn ca. 60.000 jährliche Produktivität gegenüber. Rechnen wir über 35 Jahre, um Ausbildung und Berufseinstieg abzuziehen, dann sind wir bei 2.100.000 Ergebnis für die Gesellschaft. Das ist dann eine stabile Rendite von 5-7% p.a.

Eigentlich müsstest du dich als Kinderloser freuen, dass dir der Staat Zugang zu so guten Anlagemöglichkeiten bietet.

Welchen Zweck verfolgt denn deiner Meinung nach ein Meinungsartikel?

Du hast doch selbst gesagt, dass es den Menschen ein Bedürfnis ist, das mitzuteilen. Warum ist ihnen das ein Bedürfnis?

Ist doch wieder etwas anderes, ob ich einen Meinungsartikel darüber schreibe, was ich von bestimmter Politik halte, oder wie ich meine oder andere persönliche Entscheidungen bewerte.

Das Fediverse und vor allem große Mastodon-Accounts sind seit Tagen Ziel eines immensen Spam-Angriffs, der sowohl systemimmanente Schwächen, aber auch die Widerstandsfähigkeit aufzeigt. Anders als bei früheren Spamwellen erfolgt die vor allem über kleinere Instanzen, auf denen automatisiert neue Accounts angelegt werden, die massenhaft Nachrichten absetzen und die Benachrichtigungen einiger User überfluten. Hintergrund ist wohl eine Auseinandersetzung zwischen japanischen Jugendlichen. Die Gegenwehr ist vergleichsweise einfach, wird aber durch die Dezentralität erschwert. Gleichzeitig deutet der Spam auf viel schwierigere Szenarien hin. Dass gleichzeitig viele User nichts davon mitbekommen, ist auf den engagierten Einsatz von Instanzverantwortlichen zurückzuführen.

Mastodon-Chefentwickler Eugen Rochko hat Administratoren und Administratorinnen einer Mastodon-Instanz nun darauf hingewiesen, dass Registrierungen nicht offen sein müssen. Wenn Anmeldungen auf allen Instanzen freigegeben werden müssten, wäre die Quelle im Keim erstickt worden. Sollte auf eine offene Registrierung nicht verzichtet werden können, sollten wenigstens Provider von Wegwerf-E-Mail-Adressen blockiert und Captchas aktiviert werden.

mhh. nope.

Best way to reduce consumption is preventing rich people from obscene over consumption. Do you know how many average children could grow up and life a lifetime on the emissions of Tylor Swifts private jet tours? (Arbitrary example, because it has lots of attention right now. Goes for the lifestyle of most rich and super rich people)

There is a general consensus that insects are not considered equal in terms of animal cruelty like mammals, as they have much smaller and simpler nerve systems.

In regards to ecological imprint insects have a much better feed to food ratio and you can feed them much more things than to grazing animals.

Instead of pickering over words we could just acknowledge the underlying facts.

Those who can, and most people in western industrialized countries can, should reduce their meat consumption. For most of them veganism is a viable option, especially as there is easy access to doctors checking as well as supplements if there is difficulties.

There is no intrinsic need for animal protein or fats for a healthy diet.

In a sufficiently large grid you will always have wind and in a global grid you’d also reliably have solar as base load.

Furthermore the base load can be reduced significantly with smart sheduling of energy usage.

Finally nuclear is no gurantee of baseload coverage. Nuclear power plants require a lot of water for cooling, like all thermal power plants do. With climate change the reliability of rivers providing enough water and the water being cool enough to not cause an ecological desaster downstream is becoming less and less reliable.

Many nuclear power plants at supposedely stable rivers had to be partially or fully shut down in the last summers. Nuclear power under climate change is not a stability factor. It is a risk factor to the grid.

Why do we need gigawatt grid level storages?

What about decentralized storages, e.g. a battery in your home in conjunction with solar power, or using your car battery? A lot of the arguments against renewable energy comes from demanding the electricity grid to follow the same principals as it did under fossil fuels. But a fully renewable grid can be governed by different principles.

What if i told you with renewable energy, public transit mobility, an end to the 9to5 and consume excess hamster wheel, proper recycling and sustainable products everyone could life a good life, many americans even a better life?

The world has enough ressources to sustain a larger human population and give everyone the means to a decent life. It is solely in the way things are done right now, in particular the obscenely rich, that are unsustainable.

Can you point me to a dictionary that specifies, that it can only refer to the current conditions?

en.wiktionary.org/wiki/sustain

It suggest as meanings to maintain, to provide, to encourage… In the meaning of provide and maintain there is no limit to current conditions.

I have laid out the conditions under which the world can sustain such a human population. I find it linguistically wrong to limit it in such a way, that only the current situation is permissable. This is directly contradictorary to any use in relation to future like planning.

E.g. “we plan the building to sustain a 6.5 earthquake” would be wrong under your criteria, as neither the building, nor the earthquake exist at the point of that statement…

I am neither vegan nor vegetarian, nor do i propose a mandatory switch to such diets. I also don’t mind people who primarily eat meat, as they are still traditional herders or hunters like in Central Asia or parts of Africa. But you know what these people don’t do? Fly on vacation twice a year, go on cruises, drive 20.000 km or more a year, consume 5 MWh of electricity per person and year…

The current way of animal farming with the current meat consumption results in about 10-17% of global GHG emissions. That is about the same emissions like all road traffic.

And unlike cars, where you could reduce the emissions effectively by using EVs, you simply cannot change a cow from emititting substantial amounts of methane, and the effects of the land conversion necessary for it’s feed.

Finally the argument, that X source of emission would be irrelevant to target since it is so small on the global scale is the prime whataboutism argument to not adress any emissions. “Oh our country is only making 1% of global emissions, we don’t have to change.” “Oh our industry could cut emissions in half in three years, but what about the other industry?”

People in western countries eat way too much meat. Any reduction to that is good, be it by reducing your meat consumption significantly or by switching to a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Steel production is an example of an industry that has many activities being best suited for a base load. Many industries and also some activities in steel production would be suitable for load balancing approaches.

We currently have a demand driven grid. We should shift the paradigm to a supply driven grid. This of course runs into problems with capitalism, as a main profit driver is the externalization of the costs for damages. If we adequately price the damages into the energy provided, it will drive industries to take a flexible production approach.

Anti-specieism is an argument often brought by vegan fascists, arguing that killing humans is no worse than killing mosquitos.

Also the concept of avoiding specieism fails the moment you look into nature. Is the cat that eats a mouse a speciest? Should you let mosquitos bite you and transmit diseases because killing them would be speciest? Are the farmers in Southern Africa that are plagued by locusts speciest for trying to protect their harvest?

Probably you would consider these examples as legitimate. But what about the building of the house you reside in? The production of your electronics, your energy usage…

It is impossible to make a consistent value frame of what is acceptable killing of animals and what isn’t, if you deem an individual fly as equally protectworthy as a sheep or a human.

Don’t let the deliberate sabotage by german politics distract from the necessity and ability to change the grid.

In a well interconnected European grid with extensive use of Offshore Wind potentials we can easily get there. It is not a lack of viability but a lack of political will. If you look at Germany, the largest donors to political parties are usually property investment groups and fossil (including nuclear until recently) power companies.

Putting nuclear plants at the cost comes with it’s own can of worms. Corrosion, Floodings, Coastal stability… And in regards to the grid you run into the same issues like with offshore wind. Finally with the increase in temperatures through climate change the energy demand in summer will also rise, with the need to actively cool houses more and more. In the southern US, the grid usually fails in summer, not in winter.
