  9. Is This Train Car Carrying ‘COVID-19’? The facebook fake. "It's puzzling why more conspirators aren't caught when they operate so brazenly" by David Mikkelson Published 14 March 2020 https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/covid19-railroad-tankcar/ conclusion to page, david writes: Most obviously, a tank car labeled ‘COVID-19’ makes no sense, as COVID-19 is not a term that identifies a virus or any other physical thing that can be carried. COVID-19 is the name of the coronavirus disease caused by a particular virus, so a tank car marked to display that it was carrying ‘COVID-

Hi George. even on farms where biodiversity flourish, some hedgerows have to be cut back. but the newspaper piece argued that due to destruction of nature, whats left is forced into tighter communities and virus cross between species, then wild animals get eaten , bought in wild meat markets and disease spreads. hence why we need to protect biodiversity as opposed to shooting all the crows, for a functioning natural environment, would have such problem so often as now a days. have just divided up my layout into many blocks, using nearly 100 Isolated tracks for current sensors, iso
  15. thanks , after reading the guardian article I sorta feel everyone gonna rush out and shoot crows, or worse, all the crows, so much biodiversity is lost, stuff that we could have used in global healthcare... even the amazing biodiversity of track side in the past century is gone, fires from locos, used to control vegetation and created a diverse transient flora, much of which is gone, what remains on old railways tends to be woodland flora in shade and gorse/furze or shrub in sun., the short term grassland meadows, filled with colorful annuals and biennials is gone.
