Mainstream media promoting pandemic-era public health measures under the guise of climate change warnings
A series of articles recently published by mainstream media suggest staying indoors as it is no longer safe to go outside and perform everyday activities such as working, commuting, and exercising. These “leading news outlets” warn that people must watch out for high temperatures, smokey air, and rising waters brought about by, of course, “climate change.”
Conservative political journalism website Free Beacon collated articles released by the MSM to fearmonger citizens into submitting to “pandemic-style” public health measures, including lockdowns and social distancing.
There are benefits to running on the treadmill, running coaches and exercise scientists say, as record-breaking temperatures and poor air quality from the Canadian wildfires this year have made running outside risky or outright dangerous at times. https://t.co/oHKAMFfnqm

According to a Washington Post article back in July, there are benefits to running on the treadmill rather than jogging outside as running coaches and exercise scientists say. Due to record-breaking temperatures and the poor air quality from the Canadian wildfires, it made running outside risky or outright dangerous. It pointed out that treadmills allow runners to keep training despite inclement or hot weather.
Are they going to endorse exercise equipment manufacturers next?
Heat, flooding and wildfire smoke have made for treacherous conditions this summer. How do you know when it’s safe to venture out? Here’s what to check. https://t.co/ysYeHdlE5y

Meanwhile, New York Times pointed to excessive rain and flooding in the Northeast, the dangerous heat wave with triple-digit temperatures across the South, West, and Midwest, and also the smoke from wildfires in Canada that make this a summer of weather extremes in the United States. These are great reasons to just remain inside the house as going outside can be riddled with perils.
CBS News also put the blame on the North American wildfires that “imprison” people inside their houses. Working from home was suggested and if people have no choice but to report onsite, lung specialists recommend wearing facial covering. “Ideally, a lung doctor would say, ‘If you can stay home, stay home’,” Dr. Panagis Galiatsatos told the media outlet. “But people are going to come back to me and say, ‘I need to go outside and work.'” Then wear a mask.
If you can’t stay inside, Galiatsatos recommended a few precautions to keep your lungs and heart safe. First, he said, wear a tight-fitting mask, ideally with a one-way valve, that will filter out particulates from the smoke. If you have masks left over from the pandemic that don’t have one-way valves, like N95s or surgical masks, wearing one of those can also help protect your lungs, he noted.
Is it still safe to go outside for a walk, run or jog? CNN’s @drsanjaygupta provides tips for taking proper precautions and maintaining social distancing during outdoor workouts. #CNNTownHall https://t.co/eDsBVDVTjA pic.twitter.com/oBitXu1coN

It is as if the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) never ended. CNN‘s Dr. Sanjay Gupta suggested running and jogging outdoors but added that exercisers need to make sure to take “proper precautions” during their outdoor workout. He said that it is okay if one is running or exercising alone but in the presence of many other people, social distancing is urged to avoid contracting viruses.
Can’t stay outdoors, can’t travel internationally and can’t stay inside homes as well. Where to, then?
With these warnings, people may need to rethink their vacation plans, too, as travelers are also alerted of European summer wildfires. Washington Post Travel reported that tourists and even residents in Greece and Italy have been fleeing beaches and island resorts. This is because like many parts of the U.S., southern Europe has been rocked by record-breaking temperatures this summer, something scientists at the World Weather Attribution initiative recently found would have been “virtually impossible” if not for climate change, the article read.
So people would not have any other choice but to stay put. But is staying home really safe, either? Climate alarmists have been raising fear about gas stove pollution and outlawing light bulbs.
Not surprising as President Joe Brandon’s administration has been very aggressive in its “green tyranny” drive for the whole country to shift into electrical appliances, despite the looming electric grid collapse.
