December 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — In an interview to help promote the WaterBear Network, a new video streaming service dedicated to supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Prince Harry referred to COVID-19 as a punishment from “Mother Nature.”
“Somebody said to me at the beginning of the pandemic, it’s almost as though Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behavior to really take a moment and think about what we’ve done,” he told WaterBear CEO Ellen Windemuth and head of strategy Sam Sataria.
On March 24, Duchess Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, tweeted, “Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms, like the spoilt children we are. She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us. She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control.
Just 10 days before Duchess Ferguson’s tweet, a laicized priest who was widely credited as a “theologian of reference” for the 2019 Amazon Synod argued that the coronavirus is the result of humanity’s mistreatment of the earth in his article “The Origins of the Coronavirus.”
“Not without reason did James Lovelock, who formulated the theory of the Earth as a living, self-regulating superorganism, Gaia, write a book (called) Gaia's Revenge (Intrínseca, 2006),” wrote Leonardo Boff, who is a strong supporter of Pope Francis.
“I believe that current diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, zika virus, SARS, ebola, measles, the current coronavirus, and the widespread degradation of human relations, marked by deep inequality/social injustice and a lack of minimal solidarity, are a reprisal for Gaia for the offenses we inflict on her without interruption,” Boff wrote.
“It is not without reason that the virus has erupted there where there is most pollution,” he continued. While Boff did not explain the connection between our “offenses” against Gaia and “social injustice,” he did describe the Earth as a kind of humanized consciousness.
“(Earth) begs for a different attitude towards her: to respect her rhythms and limits, to care for her sustainability and to feel that we are more than sons and daughters of Mother Earth, but even (part of) the very Earth that feels, thinks, loves, worships and cares,” he continued.
Prince Harry’s reference was criticized for not being “specific” in making the connection between the coronavirus and humanity’s effects on nature. “It's like when you just attribute something to something kind of cosmic, which to me the Mother Nature thing is,” Canada ET host Roz Weston said. “There’s nothing to back up when somebody says Mother Nature.”
“(The pandemic has) certainly reminded me about how interconnected we all are, not just as people but through nature,” he said. “We take so much from her and we rarely give a lot back,” Prince Harry said in his WaterBear interview.
WaterBear has supported the push for the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals in part through their streaming of the United Nations documentary Nations United: Urgent Solutions for Urgent Times, which was released in September.
The film opens by highlighting the COVID-19 “pandemic,” claiming that it has exposed “fractures” in our societies such as inequality and “climate catastrophe.” U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres argued in the documentary that it is only by joining together on both a national and global level that we can address such issues.
Cardinal Raymond Burke warned last year that “ecological conversion,” a phrase Pope Francis used five times in his encyclical Laudato Si, is being used as “an argument for a one-world government.”
Concerns over the health and safety of the human test subjects in Pfizer's European COVID vaccine study have caused two eminent doctors to launch a petition calling for an immediate halt to those studies.
On December 1, 2020, Dr. Michael Yeadon, an ex chief of research at Pfizer and Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a lung specialist and former department head of public health lodged an appeal to the EMA, the European Medicine Agency responsible for approving drugs across the EU, asking them to suspend the ongoing Pfizer/BioNtech COVID vaccine study on BNT162b (EudraCT number 2020-002641-42).
LifeSite is joining Drs. Yeadon and Wodarg in their call for an immediate suspension of this study and we are encouraging people to co-sign their petition to the EMA which is to be found in the petition section on this page.
Please SIGN and SHARE this important petition, and then please contact the EMA at the address listed below, in the 'For More Information' section.
In their application to the EMA, Drs. Yeadon and Wodarg give the following reasons why the Pfizer study could pose dangers to the health and safety of the study participants:
- First, the doctors say that the study design must be improved as the highly inaccurate PCR test is currently being used to detect the presence of COVID in the study participants. This means that the efficacy of the vaccine is in doubt. The doctors recommend changing from the PCR test to Sanger sequencing.
- Second, and more important, the doctors advocate animal testing of the vaccine to exclude the possibility of the risks to the life and health of human participants from known side-effects of other similar studies on corona viruses.
These side-effects can include: an exaggerated immune response when the subject comes into contact with the "real world" virus; possible infertility of an "indefinite duration" for women; severe allergic responses to polyethylene glycol which is contained in the mRNA vaccine being tested by Pfizer; and, other latent, serious side effects which, because of the short duration of the study, may only become known well after the conclusion of the study.
Because of these unacceptable risks to the life and health of the Pfizer/BioNtech COVID vaccine study participants, we are joining with Drs. Yeadon and Wodarg as co-signers of their petition to the European Medicine Agency, asking for an immediate halt to these studies.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING, today!
And, after you have signed this petition, please send the sample email in the section below to the official European Medicine Agency email: [email protected]
