offsite link If Covid Vaccines Saved 20 Million Lives, Why Did so Few Unvaccinated Die in Winter 2021? Wed Jun 12, 2024 19:00 | Nick Rendell
Media figures continue to claim that Covid vaccines saved 20 million lives. But it's just modelling, says Nick Rendell ? and it's contradicted by the data, which show the unvaccinated didn't die at a greater rate.

It's 'advocate', not 'advocate for'. Just because an error is common, doesn't stop it being wrong. And no, you can't 'advocate against'; that's an oxymoron. Can we at least get our words right, pleads Will Jones.

In 2020, the Cochrane Collaboration delayed its review of face masks and NPIs for six months while pushing out on-message rapid reviews based on low quality evidence. It still won't admit it was wrong.

Press Release - Friends of the Irish Environment 9th Sept 2020

EU Court scuttles planned fracked gas terminal permission

‘Far reaching’ EU Court ruling on Shannon LNG terminal welcomed

The European Court of Justice has advised the Irish High Court that the 2018 extension by An Bord Pleanála to the 2008 planning permission for the construction of a proposed €500m fracked gas terminal on the south bank of the River Shannon estuary must be considered as a new permit for the purposes of the Habitats Directive and must be subject to a new Assessment under the Habitats Directive.

PRESS RELEASE - FRIENDS OF THE IRISH ENVIRONMENT - WEDNESDAY 9 SEPTEMBER 2020

EU Court scuttles planned fracked gas terminal permission

‘Far reaching’ EU Court ruling on Shannon LNG terminal welcomed

The European Court of Justice has advised the Irish High Court that the 2018 extension by An Bord Pleanála to the 2008 planning permission for the construction of a proposed €500m fracked gas terminal on the south bank of the River Shannon estuary must be considered as a new permit for the purposes of the Habitats Directive and must be subject to a new Assessment under the Habitats Directive.

The court went on to say that the environmental assessment of extensions of the time limit for projects can take into account the results of earlier assessments but will still have to check for changes in the environmental and whether there have been any relevant changes in scientific knowledge, e.g., more up-to-date surveys, changes to the project and the possible impact of other plans and projects under the Habitats Directive.

The Judgment came after a Reference to the European Court of Justice by Irish High Court Justice Garett Simons in March 2019. References to the European Court of Justice seek clarification of cases before national courts where a question of EU law arises. The case will now reopen in the Irish national court for it to apply the interpretation.

According to Friends of the Irish Environment, ‘the Judgment is a welcome development of the European Court’s previous jurisprudence and has far reaching implications for other major projects across Europe which will ensure greater protection for the environment’.
