Coronavirus Pandemic 2020: Environment Omitted

by Jim West

COVID-19 is officially defined as a “virus” that causes flu-like disease. Symptoms are hypoxia (low oxygen), respiratory symptoms, cough, fever, lung and kidney damage.

This article offers an explanation for the omission of environmental factors from the mainstream propaganda with regard to the COVID-19 respiratory disease pandemic.

WHO declared the pandemic on March 11, 2020.

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is… caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 [COVID-19]. The outbreak started in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak to be… a pandemic on 11 March 2020.[Wikipedia 4/7/20]

As of 27 April 2020, more than 3.04 million cases have been reported across 185 countries and territories, resulting in more than 211,000 deaths.[Wikipedia 4/27/20]

In the United States, the most intense epicenters began in New York State in the same locations as the measles epicenters of the previous year. This suggests environmental factors.[JW 4/2019][JTA 4/2/20][LoHud 4/3/20]

  • Williamsburg (Brooklyn, NY)
  • Borough Park (Brooklyn, NY)
  • East Ramapo (Rockland County, NY)
Reality check
Some critics doubt the existence of the pandemic. Yet, there is a real pandemic of flu-like diseases. These are not merely substitute or hyped diagnoses for COVID-10.
There are real victims with new, unique respiratory symptoms, as described by: My measles epidemic research in 2019, my health experiences in 2019 in New York, the Mainstream, by New York friends, who in 2020, describe the increase of illnesses among their friends, relatives, themselves, and others.
The CDC had to expand its flu-like disease scale of 1-10 to 1-13 for the NY/NJ region.

The percent of deaths due to pneumonia or influenza (P&I) is high but the increase is due primarily to COVID-19, not influenza. Reported pediatric flu deaths for the season are high at 170.[CDC 4/25/2020]

However sliced, flu-like illness (COVID or not) is high. And this does not exempt children.
In the UK, for the period of 3/27 to 4/15/2020, the ONS…

…registered 25,932 additional deaths above the statistical recent 5 year norm. Of these 11,427 recorded COVID 19 as the sole mentioned underlying cause.[Iain Davis 5/3/2020]

Only 44% of these additional deaths (what may constitute the real pandemic) were recorded as COVID-19.

It is very important that the reader take whatever time is necessary to understand the simple and effective arguments against virus causation.[JW-NV][DC-Cv8]

So what else could have caused the pandemic? Professor Bhakdi states that the common denominator is “horrid air pollution”.

Trigger: Postulate

The worldwide toxic trigger for “COVID-19 disease” is likely a change in refinery protocols for fracked fuel, resulting in higher toxicity exhaust at epicenters where fracked fuel is burned. Cyanide, a highly toxic refinery pollutant, has been suggested. It can cause symptoms similar if not the same as COVID-19 symptoms. Cyanide is a product of refinery fluidized catalytic converters, which convert heavy fracked oils to lighter products like gasoline. Recently refineries have gone over their EPA allowed limits.


Devra Davis, PhD has documented many air pollution coverups. Davis was “the President Clinton appointee to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board”.

The Pollution Pandemic

A leading epidemiologist in Germany, Professor Sucharit Bhakdi, states that air pollution is the common denominator for the COVID-19 epicenters, that the medical and media approach is absurd and dangerous because coronaviruses have long cohabited with humans and are a mild hazard.

COVID-19 symptoms are the same as air pollution symptoms: Fever, tiredness, dry cough.[WHO-COV]

Mainstream Media is pushing a Harvard study, which describes air pollution correlations with COVID-19. Essentially, the study is saying that vulnerables (to COVID-19) are generated by long-term air pollution.

A small increase in long-term exposure to PM2.5 leads to a large increase in COVID-19 death rate, with the magnitude of increase 20 times that observed for PM2.5 and all-cause mortality.[Wu 4/5/20]

Another study, from Tel Aviv University, describes the NO2 air pollution component as a “most important contributor” to the COVID-19 pandemic.

[Nitrogen dioxide (NO2),] this pollutant may be one of the most important contributors to fatality caused by the COVID-19 virus in these regions and maybe across the whole world.[Ogen 20]

There are at least 10 more studies finding a link between air pollution and coronavirus disease. Though it is fine that they support the air pollution thesis, all of them declare a superstitious belief in COVID-19, apparently to pass the censors. One absurd study claims that coronavirus rides on pollution particles, and that this could explain how the virus spreads so far.

Typical epicenters

Wuhan (China), the initial epicenter, is one of the most polluted cities in the world. China produces and imports toxic fracking fuel and has extremely low environmental standards. Prior to the epidemic, there were street riots against killer air pollution and activists were persecuted.

How could medicos blame Wuhan’s epidemics of respiratory disease on COVID-19? Photo: CNN

Plume (air pollution app) often shows Wuhan at five times the pollution level found in New York City. Wuhan is usually reported as Very High, Extreme, or Excessive.

Other China cities

Misrepresented mortality

The pollution thesis would expect Wuhan COVID-19 deaths to be high and continuous. Yet, China tells the world that they have no more COVID-19 deaths beyond its initial period, all due to their strict quarantine. Western news chooses to believe this lie in order to promote the success of quarantines. This lie was revealed by Steven Mosher, a China expert.

Mosher stated that Wuhan’s death incidence is ongoing, at approximately 400 per 100K persons as of 4/7/20, and rising.

Madrid (Spain) has vied for position as the next highest death incidence. Spain imports its petroleum products from Qatar, major exporters of toxic fracking fuel for industry and power plants. Photo: El Pais

Plume often shows high NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) pollution for Madrid.

Milan (Italy) vies with Spain for most deaths outside of China, and is accused of under-reporting. Milan has been called, “Europe’s most polluted city.” Milan imports much of its petroleum products, fracked, from the US. See photo of Milan pollution. Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, traffic in Milan and Rome was routinely banned and people told to stay indoors because of intense air pollution.

A common Plume report for Milan is “High” and “Very High”.

The NY/NJ/CT region and the Gulf region of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish, have the highest incidence of COVID-19 disease in the US. What do they have in common? They are within the two largest petrochemical industrial regions in the US.

Pollution data missing

4/7/2020, in the morning, Plume reported “Excessive” and “Extreme” for New York City, with high and sustained NO2 levels. I predicted record COVID-19 deaths. Then later in the day, the media confirmed my prediction by reporting all-time record high COVID-19 deaths. That evening, I reviewed Plume again and found the air pollution historical data missing for 4/7/2020.

Absurdly, New York City was shown to have an Air Quality Index (AQI) of 3, due to the missing data, NO2, PM10, and O3.

The same problem began occurring for New Orleans air pollution during high death counts. Other cities (with less COVID-19 deaths) do not have this extreme missing data problem.

I reviewed NYCDOH COVID-19 death reports for 4/7/2020, and found, “High death counts are due to delayed reporting.” Thus, on the day of record-high mortality, both medical and environmental data is suddenly missing.

There is a correlation between missing data and high COVID-19 death counts.

AQI corruption

Industry/government apparently promotes public awareness of air pollution, but not too much awareness, or awareness at all levels of the public. If the public were fully aware, then property values would change drastically. Property could be viewed as a liability, not an asset.

Real estate listings should by law, have an EMF rating attached to each property listed. That would detail EMF radiation values from power lines, transformers, internal building power cables, antennae and radar locations, etc. Air pollution should be rated, and locations of earth plumes and air pollution sources would be described. But with such awareness, populations would shift, labor would become unpredictable. China solves this problem by requiring the population to be static, unless given permission.

Corrupt AQI

Western nations solve this problem with misinfo propaganda, such as the AQI, where, for example, Tucson and New York air pollution levels appear similar.

The AQI does not represent the sum of multiple poisons nor their synergistic effects.  It tends to represent the index value of the highest single poison.  An example is the Plume report presented below, with the number “56” for PM2.5

Solution: Focus on NO2 and PM2.5 — perhaps the most hazardous of the pollutants listed by EPA (and Plume). Try to determine whether particles such as PM10 are actually due to non-toxic dust or biological matter. Consider the possibility that Ozone (O3) with sunlight, is actually nature’s process of cleaning the atmosphere of pollutants. Note that NO2 disappears usually during the day with high O3 and solar UV disintegrating NO2.

Petrochemical epicenters

New York City and New Orleans are both adjacent and downwind from the largest petrochemical regions in the U.S.

New York City is also downwind from recently installed electric power plants that are fueled with toxic fracked “natural” gas.

Air pollution also arrives from earth spills, accumulated from centuries of unregulated industry. These spills are common throughout New York City and adjacent New Jersey.

Usually, epidemics in the US begin in, and are heaviest in, New York City, e.g., the 1916 polio, 1918 Spanish flu, The Great Polio Epidemic, West Nile virus, H1N1 flu, measles in 2019, and now, COVID-19. The cover story for each epidemic is a virus. I was told by the highest environmental officials in the US that any scientist, journalist or politician who criticizes virus paradigms will lose his job, funding and publishing ability, “overnight”.

Challenge: “The correlation with pollution is that pollution makes people vulnerable to the virus.”

My rebuttal: Viruses are not proven entities. Virology fails to discount toxicological factors and falsely declares isolation of viruses. A mainstream virologist cannot survive a public debate. Only pollution remains to be considered.

The toxic trigger

Air pollution is the common denominator as a background poison, and to a lesser extent, so are pesticides, EMF, and water pollution. The big question is: What could be the unique trigger for this worldwide pandemic declared in March 2020?

Best guess: A severe increase in air pollution in the form of fracked petrochemical fuel. Fracked petrochemicals could have been changed — by new toxics being added at the refinery or by processing rules being relaxed for the cleaning of fracked fuels.

Precedent: Changes of refinery protocol for toxic Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE), authorized by EPA/DEC at 15% of gasoline in the Tri-State region (NY/NJ/CT), are the apparent cause of the prior pandemic, called “West Nile virus” in 1999. Within the Tri-State region, epicenters and air pollution maps coincide for all three epidemics: West Nile virus epidemic of 1999, the measles epidemic of 2019, and the present COVID-19 epidemic of 2020.

Toxic earth gases (Superfund Sites) also correlate with the record-high measles epidemics of 2019, and the present COVID-19 epidemics.

Escape from New York

August 2019, after 40 years loving the Big Apple, I left NYC due to research finding an alarming trend of rapidly increasing air pollution. I had just published my measles research, an environmental study of the record-high incidence of measles epidemics, which, in the US, was mostly in New York City.

This was a tough and sad decision, but necessary for survival. New electric power plants were going online upwind, in upstate New York and New Jersey, in anticipation of the popularity of electric cars and all-electric buildings. These plants are fueled by toxic fracked “natural gas”. Upwind is Pennsylvania, the land of approximately 11,000 fracking wells. Upwind is New Jersey, a major petrochemical refinery zone. Piped through NYC gas stoves is toxic fracked gas. The earth of NYC is soaked with centuries of industrial vaporous spills.

Telling coincidences

The initial Coronavirus epicenters in New York State of 2020 (highest in US) coincide with the three measles epicenters of 2019 (highest in US). These are Borough Park and Williamsburg in Brooklyn county, and Ramapo in Rockland county.

These epicenters (measles and COVID-19) occurred over toxic earth plumes from EPA Superfund Sites. Upwind to these epicenters are old and newly installed electric power plants, fueled by toxic fracked gas.

Within these Superfund Site epicenters, the measles epidemics in 2019 were blamed on unvaccinated people by restricting diagnostic investigations to the unvaccinated. The unvaccinated were fined $1,500.

The Coronavirus epidemics of 2020 were blamed on the same people for not self-isolating. Those not complying were fined $1,000.

Sucharit Bhakdi, PhD

Prof. Dr. med. Sucharit Bhakdi is an epidemiologist and microbiologist, the chairman of The Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene at Mainz University for 22 years. He is one of Germany’s the most cited researchers. Bhakdi has “demystified” the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bhakdi supports the air pollution thesis over the virus thesis.

He does, however, maintain the burden of virus belief, and is thus stuck with a long, complicated, and somewhat false argument in the style of Peter Duesberg, PhD.

Bhakdi must support virology because if he denied the virus, he would lose his career, publishing access, and paycheck, “overnight”, as I have been told is the general case by environmental authorities. For example, Peter Duesberg, PhD is famous for merely doubting the degree of hazard attributed to HIV, the virus declared to be the cause of AIDS. Duesberg was persecuted and prosecuted, apparently because he was a highly respected virologist and tenured professor going against his own religious institution.

Bhakdi describes Coronavirus as “low-risk”, rather than as dissidents such as myself do, which is, “an unproven entity”.

The no-virus argument is much simpler, much easier to remember and discuss. It merely puts the burden of proof on virologists where it belongs. It puts the burden of proof properly on anyone who makes claims about viruses. The no-virus argument merely asks two questions which virologists cannot answer: 1) Where was virus isolation properly achieved? 2) Where was toxicological causation properly discounted?

Virology has no answer, and thus its claims are moot.

Bhakdi is doing what he can within his profession’s political limitations to bring attention to air pollution and COVID-19 contradictions.

Bhakdi describes the COVID-19 pandemic as “tragic”, a dramatized hyper-focus on Coronavirus, essentially a misdiagnosis of diseases that traditionally happen among the already severely ill, and often due to ongoing air pollution.

Here is the introduction from Bhakdi’s interview, “Corona virus COVID-19- hype and hysteria? Demystification of the nightmare!”, March 19, 2020.

Q: Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, you are an infectious disease specialist. You are one of the most cited medical disease specialists in Germany… What are Coronaviruses?

Bhakdi:  These viruses co-exist with humans and animals around the globe. The viruses are the cause of very common minor diseases of the respiratory tract… A new member is on stage spreading fear around the world.

Q: Why?

Bhakdi: The new COVID-19 originated in China and spread rapidly. It appeared to be accompanied by an unexpected high number of deaths. Alarming reports followed from Northern Italy that concurred with the Chinese experience. It must, however, be pointed out that the large majority of outbreaks in other parts of the world appeared to display lower mortality rates.

Q: Why “appeared” to display mortality rates?

Bhakdi: When patients concurrently have other illnesses, an infectious agent must not be held solely responsible for a lethal outcome. This happens for COVID-19, but such a conclusion is false and gives rise to the danger that other important factors are overlooked. Different mortality rates may well be due to different local situations. For example, what does northern Italy have in common with China? Answer: Horrific air pollution. The highest in the world. Northern Italy is the China of Europe…

Q: The highest alert level has been declared and extreme preventative measures have been installed in the desperate attempt to slow the spread of this virus.

Bhakdi: Yes, and this is the incredible tragedy. Because all these measures are actually senseless…

Bhakdi says that historically, coronaviruses “cohabit with humans” and they are not commonly known for serious effects. He says that a positive test result is “not the disease”.

Contrast that with Dr. Birx, who, while representing the Federal Administration, stated that deaths and disease are diagnosed as COVID-19 largely by a mere association with a positive test result.

Thus, even in the mainstream, virus-believing world, a “case” is not necessarily a disease, and any COVID-19 disease is not necessarily due to COVID-19.

Thus, the advertised pandemic is, in part, a pandemic of testing.

5G not primary cause

Some believe that electromagnetic fields (EMF) from 5G are causing the pandemic.

This is unlikely because 5G protocol was not substantially present in all the epicenters, and the 60GHz frequency, the form of 5G that would purportedly cause COVID-19 symptoms, was not yet deployed.

The only common denominator is air pollution. 5G is not a common enough denominator.

See the 5G deployment map of Madrid during the COVID-19 pandemic. Madrid vies with Italy and Wuhan for the world’s highest incidence of COVID-19 death. Yet 5G was minimally deployed. This map, updated daily, represents the network of only one of Madrid’s four telecom companies, the only one that had installed 5G as of 4/7/2020.

5G deployment is in blue.

The map shows that 5G accounts for less than 0.5 percent of network installation in Madrid during the epidemic, and there is no information regarding the frequencies employed.

Electromagnetic smog, whether it arrives from 4G or 5G routers, or power EMF from cables and devices, can generate biological hypersensitivity to toxic chemicals, and thus would be able to cause many COVID-like symptoms such as respiratory symptoms and fever. However, the map demonstrates that electro-smog can only be a contributor to this pandemic, not a primary cause.

The self-quarantines and lockdowns could increase electro-smog, because people are expected to live their lives through social media, sitting near high-EMF computer monitors and Internet routers, increasing EMF stress.

Some doctors report damaged lung membranes. That would indicate air pollution, as air pollution could directly contact the membranes. High frequency 5G would not reach lung membranes readily because those frequencies would be attenuated by skin and organs before reaching lung membranes.

Higher frequencies (presumed with 5G) are more readily absorbed by the skin, thereby attenuating EMF energy (though damaging the skin). 5G proponents assert that high 5G frequencies such as 60GHz, caused the pandemic by splitting oxygen molecules, rendering oxygen difficult for lungs to absorb. However, 5G proponents misread their own supporting studies.


Q1: Why does Los Angeles far fewer COVID-19 deaths than NYC despite its huge population?

A1: The regional fuel consists of only 20% fracked fuel.

Q2: Why does Sweden have few COVID-19 deaths despite its lack of social distancing?

A2: Sweden burns petrochemical fuel from Russia, where fracking is banned. Caveat: Death incidence could rise if testing procedures are changed or if Sweden switches petroleum sources.

Q3: Why do journalists refer to fracked natural gas as “clean natural gas, a bridge to sustainable fuels”, as if fracked natural gas is the same as “clean natural gas”?

A3: The publishing industry is influenced by industrial pressure and profit. Industry can sit on their boards and virtually or directly own them. Same with environmental groups. It requires substantial money to get a viewpoint into a major media outlet. It is difficult to obtain information about fracking. The Environmental Working Group describes this. Yet even the EWG discusses fracking without mentioning the toxicity of fracked natural gas. Its article title includes the term “toxic natural gas” but this refers to the fracking process, not the gas. Non-fracked natural gas can also contain toxic contaminants such as mercury.

Q4: Why does the pandemic appear to be infectious? That is, how did it start in a single place, Wuhan, and appear to spread throughout the world?

A4: Different epicenters have different environmental histories. Wuhan is one of the world’s most air-polluted cities. Earth pollution also is likely tremendous. A global increase of fracked fuel exhaust toxicity would present new forms of toxicity, and cause new forms of disease. The epidemic would appear first in the most historically poisoned areas such as Wuhan. Parallel. It would appear first in the most poisoned individuals, the vulnerables.

Theories of purpose

The trigger of the pandemic is changes in fracking refinery protocols that enable higher fuel exhaust toxicity. The fracking industry is being closed down. It has long been financially tenuous, with little profit margin, absolutely dependent on environmental exemptions. Fracking is exempt from The Clean Water Act. Hopefully, its death knell is tolling.

After months of market pressure upon the fracking industry due to Arab and Russian price wars, the US Oil market was devastated, “a doomsday scenario”, just as US states prepared to phase out of the lockdowns. This day is the worst since 1983. Oil suppliers must pay to have oil moved. This could be elite management appearing to be free market interactions.

COVID-19 fear changes society as follows:

1) Studies that publicize the synergy effects of air pollution and COVID, motivate polluting industries to clean up, yet without public blame, because the fake virus takes the blame.

2) Public tolerance for pollution levels will increase. COVID is a continuation of medical public training: Disease is due to germs and defective genes, not industrial pollution.

3) COVID enables pollution masks to be socially acceptable as they are in China.

4) COVID expands Medical power and infrastructure.

5) Populations are forced to modernize online, i.e., to learn about the possibilities of the Internet: Zoom and Skype for work and society, online shopping, bills, and government.

6) Decentralizes nations. Cities are less important, due to the Internet.

Fracking’s demise?

Almost 40% of oil and natural gas producers face insolvency within the year… Production shut-ins aren’t just a U.S. phenomenon: wells are being turned off from Scandinavia to Brazil as crude producers wilt under the crash.[Bloomberg 5/3/2020]


“Case” is misleading, because cases are not well defined. A mere positive for an already sick person is enough for a COVID-19 diagnosis. “Death” is better, because death is more likely to be associated with definitive symptoms like fever and lung damage.

Cases and deaths are misleading, for example: NY Times, “Morning Briefing” (4/23/2020):

…the US outbreak… by far the world’s largest…

Incidence is best because it reveals patterns that point to toxic sources. See the incidence chart of epicenters below. Note that fracked fuel exhaust correlates with deaths.

Interpreting incidence

View the chart’s three sections: High, Medium, and Low COVID incidence. These correlate with high, mixed, and low fracked oil consumption and earth pollution.

The US may be “the largest” (outside of China), but it is far down the list in terms of incidence, and if we subtract the Tri-State region, US incidence would be very far down the list.

The difference

New York City incidence is much higher than US incidence. Therefore, what is different about New York City?  EARTH POLLUTION. The following map of only one recent year, by Jill Hubley, indicates two areas of high incidence for ongoing routine spillage.

The two largest spill areas coincide with the neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Borough Park. These are the initial areas of COVID-19 cases in 2020, and they are the areas of the measles epicenters during 2019 and prior years. By raising air pollution by way of fracking protocol changes, disease was triggered in those located over these spill areas, triggered among the already poisoned, the vulnerables. This is not a virus epidemic.


NYC is downwind from a major petrochemical region and frack-fueled power plants, and its soil is polluted by spills from a prior 50 refineries, and manufactured gas plants. NYC incidence is 9 times US incidence.

The two worst sites on the Hubley map are Williamsburg and Borough Park.

These are EPA Superfund Sites.

These are the Measles Epicenters of 2019 and prior years.

These are the initial COVID-19 Epicenters of 2020.

Bingo. The increased air pollution during 2019 and 2020 lowered the threshold of disease for the already vulnerable poisoned population in these areas.

Challenge: But air pollution is already acknowledged as a cofactor for COVID-19 disease. Incidence is high in NYC because it has a higher population density, and thus, social distance is not maintained well and the virus spreads more efficiently.

Answer: Population density is not a common denominator. A comparison of the five NYC boroughs refutes the theory of population density. The boroughs are all within a small geographical area, sharing a common environment in terms of above-ground air pollution, yet Manhattan has the highest population density and lowest incidence.

Manhattan has more people located on higher floors, away from earth pollution.

Bronx has the highest incidence. It has more people located on lower floors near earth pollution in a borough known for industrial dumping. It is nearest to the newly installed upwind electric power plants.

Essentially, New York City is a Petri dish of poisoned vulnerables who are revealed by a dye of toxic fracked-fuel exhaust.

Perceiving China

The Western mainstream (CNN, NY Times, etc) often reversed its view of China’s propaganda, depending upon its agenda. 1) It disbelieved China’s initial claim that there was no epidemic, because the mainstream was driving the epidemic cause and perception. 2) It believed China’s claim that it attenuated the epidemic through lockdowns, because the mainstream was promoting lockdowns. 3) It disbelieved China’s claim that China was not the initiator of the pandemic, because there was an apparent opportunity to sue China for compensation or create political smoke by accusing China.


February 28, 2020, Trump correctly called the pandemic a “hoax”, but not because he is aware of the air pollution connection. Soon after, Trump looked bad as, in March, COVID-19 deaths mounted. As of this writing, 5/6/2020, the economy is opening up slowly, yet COVID-19 mortality continues at a reduced and “flattened” rate.

A second COVID death wave could arrive if the fracking gates are opened wide again. Dr. Fauci might well be correct about a greater epidemic returning during cooler weather — but not because of COVID-19, rather because of unrelenting fracked fuel toxicity and badly vented earth pollution due to closed windows during cool weather.
