A virus with the potential to kill up to half the world’s population has been made in a lab. Now academics and bioterrorism experts are arguing over whether to publish the recipe, and whether the research should have been done in the first place.

Researchers in Fouchier’s team used ferrets – test animals which closely mimic the human response to influenza – and transmitted H5N1 from one to another to make it more adaptable to new hosts. After 10 generations, the virus had mutated to become airborne, which means ferrets became ill from merely being near other diseased animals.


"I can't think of another pathogenic organism that is as scary as this one," Paul Keim, a microbial geneticist who has worked on anthrax for many years, told Science Insider. "I don't think anthrax is scary at all compared to this."

Next you'll say that we're going 2 die because of the smallpox virus kept alive in a lab

Reading the article I find I am unable to make any decision. It says that the flu can possibly help us prepare for a H5N1 pandemic but in hands of terrorists like the Al-Quaida, it can be deadly as they don't have any respect for lives even their own.

yeah the doomsday scenario might just end up being a creation of our own instead of some outside factor.

phuk these scientist beeches...they study so much crap just so that one day they could kill us all....

----------

guess what these scientist 1st conducted a research on how to make not very harmful virus extremely harmful and then they want everyone to knw how to do it :rofl:

phuking lunatics and they call them selves intelligent....if this is intelligence ya we r doomed anyhow this is just slow killing what they are doing !

i think it is an established fact that if we do not drastically change our habits by 2015, the changes would be irreversible and things would go downhill at a faster pace than today. we just have 3-4 years left to make some solid decisions. after that it just might be too late.

"What’s new about this research is that we have integrated the carbon cycle into our model to obtain the emissions data," says Erich Roeckner. According to the model, admissible carbon dioxide emissions will increase from approximately seven billion tonnes of carbon in the year 2000 to a maximum value of around ten billion tonnes in 2015. In order to achieve the long-term stabilisation of the atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, the emissions will then have to be reduced by 56 percent by the year 2050 and approach zero towards the end of this century. Although, based on these calculations, global warming would remain under the two-degree threshold until 2100, further warming may be expected in the long term: "It will take centuries for the global climate system to stabilise," says Erich Roeckner.

just wait for 40 years :) ice caps are melting fast enough already. .

the movie 'waterworld' does seem to be a reality of the future

unfortunately the bitter truth is that there will be no change coz as humans we ignore things until its too late to do anything
