Florida's Fake Surgeon General Faked COVID Vaccine 'Study' Results, Documents Show

If it's OK for hurricane forecasts, why not for public health?

Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, who was appointed to the job because his anti-vaccine quackery pleased Ron Desantis, made news last October when he flogged a deeply flawed "study" as an excuse to recommend that Florida Men under the age of 40 not get vaccinated against COVID-19. The recommendation and the study were roundly condemned by real medical experts at the time, because the study had multiple flaws: a tiny sample size, multiple methodological flaws, including several the authors pointed out themselves, and the glaring fact that the work hadn't been peer reviewed.

In Bold Move, Ron DeSantis Appoints Actual COVID Virus As Florida Surgeon General

Yesterday, Politico reported that there's an even bigger reason to doubt the already shaky research: Dr. Ladapo "personally altered" the study to make it seem the COVID vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer pose "a significantly higher health risk for young men than had been established by the broader medical community," according to a copy of the study draft obtained through a public records request.

Ladapo’s changes [...] presented the risks of cardiac death to be more severe than previous versions of the study. He later used the final document in October to bolster disputed claims that Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines were dangerous to young men.

Specifically, Ladapo's revisions to the eight-page draft edited out the results of "an important analysis that would have contradicted his recommendation," in order to exaggerate the supposed risk of heart disease from the vaccines. Every last footnote and reference to that "sensitivity analysis" was deleted by Ladapo, making an already iffy study seem like its findings were more definite than it really was.

Vile And Unrepentant Tucker Carlson Now Telling Your Nana COVID Vaccines Kill

File under: people God is preparing a special place in hell for. (Tucker, not your Nana.)

REMEMBER WHEN! We will be spending much of the day throwing at your face some of our favorite old Tucker Carlson posts, or at least the ones Evan linked to yesterday, because that is a nice cheat sheet to start with. This post originally published on May 6, 2021.

Tucker Carlson has a new and vile conspiracy theory lie to tell your impressionable Boomer Republican family members, and it's that COVID vaccines are MURDERING EVERYBODY.

If your old dumb Uncle Bubba watched Tucker last night (and he assuredly did), he heard Tucker tell him that "thousands" of people have died from getting the COVID vaccine. He said that according to some very real doctor he talked to, this is the "single deadliest mass vaccination event in modern history." Yes, just like Fox News fills your grandmother's head with verifiable bullshitabout things that actually are not happening, like antifa terror hordes and Mr. Potato Head's forced castration, Tucker is now telling your misguided yet beloved grandmother that the vaccine kills.

Climate Crisis Well Into 'Just Like  Science Fiction' Territory

Extreme heat kills at least 11 in India.

On Sunday, Reuters reports, hundreds of thousands of people sat in the hot sun for hours during an award presentation in an empty field near Mumbai. As the event went on, the high temperature reached 38 degrees Celsius (100.4°F), with high humidity, which Reuters says is normal for this time of year, although sitting out in the midday sun for hours isn't. At least 11 people died of heatstroke, and about 50 were taken to hospitals; the Times of India reports that another unconfirmed tally set the death toll at 13, and adds that

Eight of the dead are women, mostly elderly. The casualties may rise as some of those hospitalised are believed to be critical with cardiac problems and fluctuations in blood sugar levels.

The disaster has led to accusations of careless planning for the annual awards ceremony, which this year honored a prominent social worker and health activist. India's Home Affairs Minister Amit Shah joined many officials from Maharashtra state at the dais — which was among the few parts of the grounds that was covered with shade. He tweeted this photo of the crowd as seen from the stage:

Federal Judge Takes Dump On Clean Water Act In 24 States

Now that water's not so clean.

A federal judge in North Dakota issued a temporary stay Wednesday on a key EPA rule that protects small bodies of water like streams, wetlands, and creeks that can feed into larger water supplies, in yet another fight between regulators who think it would be nice for water in this country to not be polluted, and business and Big Agriculture interests who think the Feds shouldn't be able to stop them from dumping nasty shit that can make its way into streams and rivers.

At issue is a December 2022 EPA rule defining what exactly the term "waters of the United States" means in the 1972 Clean Water Act, because how those five words are interpreted makes all the difference in whether particular damp spots on the map are subject to regulation by the federal government. EPA and Republicans have fought over the term through multiple presidential administrations, and you may be delighted to know that it's such a big part of environmental law that it's regularly abbreviated as "WOTUS."

Also I promise not to go too much into the weeds, or the reeds, since the details of "waters of the US" can be remarkably dry.
