# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
FDA urged to publish follow-up studies on covid-19 vaccine safety signals: In July 2021 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quietly disclosed findings of a potential increase in four types of serious adverse events in elderly people who had had Pfizer’s covid-19 vaccine: acute myocardial infarction, disseminated intravascular coagulation, immune thrombocytopenia, and pulmonary embolism. More than a year later, however, the status and results of the follow-up study are unknown. The agency has not published a press release, or notified doctors, or published the findings, or updated the vaccine’s product label.

Coal bounces back: Global coal use is not declining, and may actually produce a record amount of planet-warming pollution by the end of the year.

How a federal agency is contributing to salmon’s decline in the Northwest: Damming the powerful waters of the Columbia River was a boon for cheap, clean electricity,  but the fish that swam those waters are dying out, and the agency in charge isn’t stopping that. The fish cannot get past two federal dams, masses of concrete each hundreds of feet tall. The construction of those dams, which began more than 80 years ago, rendered salmon extinct in hundreds of miles of rivers and destroyed the area’s most important fishing grounds.

No Way Out for the USA: The US is the most indebted nation in world history; it’s broke, and it can no longer win a protracted war. The US became the biggest house on the block, but it was, in fact, a house of cards, which was only as good as the currency it was built upon – not true money but debt.
