Or are they two unrelated events?

“Climate change” and “Covid pandemic” each have 13 letters.

Some folks of a certain political bent deny the existence of both of them. I think that’s just an unfortunate coincidence though.

They are both top news stories

Two distinct and separate issues. For most thinking people. However, if you are of a conspiratorial mind set, I suppose there is some correlation. Covid is a plan by Bill Gates to inoculate everyone with microchips, climate change is nothing a liberal Dem talking point, with no basis in reality. And don’t forget, the Earth is flay, outer space and gravity don’t exist, and Elvis shot Kennedy from a UFO hovering over the grassy knoll. Just no end to the entertainment these people can provide.

They are both things that wouldn’t happen the ways they have been, without modern industry spanning the planet.

There have been a number of articles making the headlines in California about wildfire smoke making people more susceptible to COVID. So I suppose that is one possible link.

The pandemic itself likely wouldn’t have happened without environmental destruction, unless of course you believe it started as a lab leak.
