    I'm waiting for the next plague.
    I'm thinking it's death by Doritos, or - Cheetos for the Freepers.

        cause widespread food shortages if not downright starvation, weakened populations will be the first to succumb.

        Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

        ...compared to what's coming in the climate catastrophe.  Slow agonizing deaths by the billions, often from starvation and drawn-out resource wars, and the less merficul plagues such as cholera (fatal diarrhea).  

        Which is why many of us here are ferocious about climate-clean energy, and why there seems to be a kind of truce working out between the pro-nuclear and anti-nuclear sides of that:

        Everyone agrees on conservation & renewables. If the anti-nukes here want to work on design & implementation of large scale renewable power projects, the pro-nukes here are more than willing to help.  We can agree to disagree about the nukes, and some of us will support building those wherever they're needed, while we're also helping the anti-nuclears with their own engineering & feasibility studies for renewables.  

        The point is to get the stuff built, ASAP, to shut down coal-burners ASAP.

          First it's explosive, then it's fatal. You're a semi-solid poop terrorist.

            "Sanitation is civilization."  

            I remind myself of that when I have to flip the manual valves on my water conservation systems here, or when the 7:00 AM refuse collection occurs with noises reminiscent of a battlefield.  

            And with cholera, yep, first it's explosive, then it's fatal, and it's always contagious as hell.  As per The Sheep Look Up.  

            The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed
            but swol'n with wind, and the rank mist they draw
            rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread.
