Study: Satellites show no acceleration in global warming for 23 years

Global warming has not accelerated temperature rise in the bulk atmosphere in more than two decades, according to a new study funded by the Department of Energy.

University of Alabama-Huntsville climate scientists John Christy and Richard McNider found that by removing the climate effects of volcanic eruptions early on in the satellite temperature record it showed virtually no change in the rate of warming since the early 1990s.

“We indicated 23 years ago — in our 1994 Nature article — that climate models had the atmosphere’s sensitivity to CO2 much too high,” Christy said in a statement. “This recent paper bolsters that conclusion.”

STUDY: Satellites Show No Acceleration In Global Warming For 23 Years

Is THIS How They’ll Eliminate Nearly 90% Of The US Population By 2025? Stunning Number Of Mysteriously Dead Scientists, Microbiologists And Holistic Health Practitioners Suggest Something Extremely Nefarious Is Going On!

Back on November 5th, we published a story on ANP titled “There Is Something ‘Dark And Disturbing’ About This Outbreak – Bizarre Coincidences And Deadly Proficiency” within which we reported numerous bizarre coincidences and unnerving facts about the outbreak of the ‘Black Death’ plague now striking Madagascar. As we reported then, the rapidly spreading disease was showing no signs of slowing down and as the Daily Mail reports in this recent story, experts are now warning the deadly virus WILL reach the US, Europe and the UK and their great worry now is the disease could mutate to become untreatable.
According to this new story from the Daily Star, no one is safe from this epidemic of black death as they warn it is spreading across cities like wildfire, possibly spiraling out of control, and as this new story over at The Sun confirms, there is very little that anybody will be able to do to stop it now from going global. And now as we read in a bizarre new story shared in the 1st video and in much more detail below, some doctors are now warning a mutation cause this disease to kill in as little as 3 hours.

While medical experts warn that the black death plague now causing such a scare begins with flu-like symptoms and that those who’ve contacted the deadly disease who don’t take antibiotics within the first 24 hours afterwards will most likely die, we take a look within this brand new ANP story at an absolutely stunning number of the world’s most pre-eminent scientists and microbiologists and now holistic healthcare practitioners who have met their untimely and mysterious ends.

How many Americans who catch a cold or some kind of bug immediately get themselves on antibiotics within the first 24 hours, especially in this day and age of massive anitibiotic overuse resulting in diseases become antibiotic resistant? Generally, most people will wait at least a day or two before going to the doctors when they come down with flu like symptoms but as we learn in this story from the New Zealand Herald, waiting 2 or 3 days to get on medications may be far too late.

Quite interestingly, as we learn from this often quoted story from History Today, when the plague swept across Europe in the 14th century, wiping out nearly 60% of the entire population, it was of a ‘bubonic’ variety and it ‘spread by leaps’ or ‘metastic spread’. It jumped from village to village to village. This is important yet we should keep in mind, that was the bubonic plague and what is striking Madagascar now is 65% pneumonic. From their story:

The infection takes three–five days to incubate in people before they fall ill, and another three–five days before, in 80 per cent of the cases, the victims die. Thus, from the introduction of plague contagion among rats in a human community it takes, on average, twenty-three days before the first person dies.

When, for instance, a stranger called Andrew Hogson died from plague on his arrival in Penrith in 1597, and the next plague case followed twenty-two days later, this corresponded to the first phase of the development of an epidemic of bubonic plague. And Hobson was, of course, not the only fugitive from a plague-stricken town or area arriving in various communities in the region with infective rat fleas in their clothing or luggage.

This pattern of spread is called ‘spread by leaps’ or ‘metastatic spread’. Thus, plague soon broke out in other urban and rural centres, from where the disease spread into the villages and townships of the surrounding districts by a similar process of leaps. In order to become an epidemic the disease must be spread to other rat colonies in the locality and transmitted to inhabitants in the same way.

It took some time for people to recognize that a terrible epidemic was breaking out among them and for chroniclers to note this. The timescale varies: in the countryside it took about forty days for realization to dawn; in most towns with a few thousand inhabitants, six to seven weeks; in the cities with over 10,000 inhabitants, about seven weeks, and in the few metropolises with over 100,000 inhabitants, as much as eight weeks.

black_death_greatest_catastrophe_ever.png

As Susan Duclos recently pointed out, the 2014 ‘outbreak’ of Ebola here in the US, while limited to only a few victims, showed us just how totally unprepared most of our hospitals were for handling the infectious waste that comes along with a human outbreak of a disease caused by a biolevel 4 pathogen such as ebola. And while thankfully the killer disease was nipped in the bud back then and the spread halted, we must remember that ebola is largely spread via bodily or fluid contact, not through the air like the black death plague is now causing such havoc in Madagascar.

Imagine a worst case scenario of an untreatable and airborne version of the black death plague that killed off more than 60% of Europe’s population during the 14th century suddenly striking heavily populated areas of America. With anybody hit by it first showing symptoms of the common flu, likely leaving some staying home to recuperate while others think “its just a bug” while they go about their normal routines, the catastrophic damage potentially caused as the infected go untreated, possibly infecting anybody else within breathing or sneezing distance from them, could be unimaginably high.

While the pneumonic plague was not known to spread as viciously during cold seasons, and in the history of plagues that have struck Norway from the Black Death 1348-49 to the last outbreaks in 1654, comprising over thirty waves of plague, there was never a winter epidemic of plague, they also remind us why this plague is very different than the ones that struck Europe hundreds of years ago:

Plague is very different from airborne contagious diseases, which are spread directly between people by droplets: these thrive in cold weather.

With medical experts now warning that roughly 2/3 of all the cases of black death striking Madagascar are airborne and of the pneumonic variety, the potential spread of such an airborne disease is much greater than that which is caused by close contact or touch, the bubonic plagues that have tragically culled the lives of millions from this world.

And as experts also warn, we’re now witnessing a ‘more lethal form of the medieval disease’ that has killed hundreds of millions over years with the latest warnings the now airborne disease can kill within 3 hours that will send chills up spines. From their story:

A local news crew following one health worker in the stricken city heard doctors informing residents that the new strain of the disease “can kill in three hours”.

Earlier this week, infection and immunity expert Dr Matthew Avison told Daily Star Online that the “extremely rare” disease has been “resilient” to antibiotics.

A spokesman for the World Health Organisation admitted there were fears that this strain of plague – which is now believed to be airborne – could cause a global outbreak of the disease.

Might such a disease have been bioengineered as reported in this story from Real Farmacy and as our videographer asks in the 2nd video below? As we’ll learn from Steve Quayle in an interview that will be published next week, an excerpt of this story from BBC, South Africa’s ‘Dr. Death’ who’s real name is Wouter Basson, just years ago took part in a top-secret program in which he was accused of producing illegal drugs and creating viruses that would only attack black people.

We’ll also discuss recent revelations coming to us from Russia where Vladimir Putin has shown us proof of genetic testing being done by the US Air Force in which Putin asks: “Why are they doing this?” This TruNews story asks: “Are they doing it for a bioweapon?” Another interesting new story comes to us from the Daily Star which reports top secret files reveal Japan actually bred black death plague to unleash upon the US during WW2.

In addition we’ll discuss these devious weapons known as ethnic bioweapons and as Steve will warn us, decades and decades of research have been put in to developing such weapons and there is little doubt that a British scientist named Dr. David Kelly may have been murdered and his death covered up because of his work in developing such ethnic bioweapons. And with the plague now striking Africa, a very similar plague to the one that wiped out more than 50 million people hundred years ago, is it just a coincidence that the UK’s Prince William recently claimed that there is a need for urgent depopulation efforts in Africa as reported in this recent story from Natural News?

The list of mysteriously dead scientists and microbiologists stretch all the way back to at least 1993 and now holistic health care doctors are mysteriously dying off en masse as Erin Elizabeth has steadfastly documented over at Health Nut News. Why are so many holistic doctors mysteriously dying, several years after many microbiologists, scientists, neurologists and other pre-eminent experts within their fields? Intersestingly, many of these mysteriously dead worked within top secret or weapons programs!

As Susan Duclos reported Monday on ANP, the list of dead holistic health care practicioners dating only back to 2015 now number 77 and the mainstream media apparatus hasn’t even touched upon the strange string of coincidences. Why have first scientists and microbiologists, and now holistic health practicioners, been dropping dead like flies and the msm ignoring them?

bio_terror_pandemic.png
As we previously reported on ANP, this series of stories taking a look at black death now spreading across Africa and threatening to make landfall here in the US will consist of 3 stories and in our next story, we’ll also take a look at some big and small things that we can do as individuals to help make sure that we and our families survive should the worst case scenario unravel here and the US be struck with a widespread outbreak of what history has called “the greatest catastrophe ever”.

With the state of Oklahoma now actually conducting bioweapons tests for ‘research’ as we read in this story from over at Fox News 23, we’re told that one of the biggest reasons for Deagel’s forecast of nearly a 90% population reduction for America could largely be due to them knowing the ‘players involved’ with Deagel’s sources being ‘deep state’ all the way including the US Department of State, World Bank, CIA, and the European Union among others.

Deagel likely knows very well knows about the players involved who are creating bioweapons and binary bioweapons such as ebolapox and mouse pox with government’s and military’s all across the world, including China, Russia and Iran, and numerous US military branches, also listed as their sources. What is ‘mouse pox’ you might ask?

A virus that kills every one of its victims, by wiping out part of their immune system, has been accidentally created by an Australian research team. The virus, a modified mousepox, does not affect humans, but it is closely related to smallpox, raising fears that the technology could be used in biowarfare.

The discovery highlights a growing problem. How do you stop terrorists taking legitimate research and adapting it for their own nefarious purposes?

We’ll also take a look at the recent mysterious death of UFO researcher Max Spiers who back in 2016 was found dead after vomiting more than 2 liters of black blood and as we read in this recent SQ Alert, he too may have been a victim of a fast-acting bioweapon. We’ll also discuss what we reported on ANP back on November 5th, one potential delivery method of a ‘cocktail’ of death could be via chemtrails with chemtrails combined with deadly bioweapons to create a nefarious death spray or as Steve calls it, ‘death breath’, as what could be part of the notorious, long-held goals of the ‘illuminati-globalists’ of eliminating 90% of the world’s population.

 

 

Anomalous series of spectacular sun phenomena in the sky of Chile (video and pictures)

High altitude cirrus clouds sometimes contain a large number of hexagonal ice crystals, and if these are struck by sunlight at just the right angle, with the sun elevated at least 58 degrees, the sky suddenly looks like somebody waved a giant magnet in front of an old-school computer monitor. But, yesterday was more than unusual in Antofagasta. A series of different sun halos lit up the sky over the whole day, baffling skywatchers as if they’ve finally discovered the gateway to Oz. At around midday, a double solar halo – circumhorizontal arc below the very common 22-degree halo – amazed onlookers during approximately half an hour. Then around 3:30pm, another sun halo appeared before an incredible sundog or two suns phenomenon around 6:30pm. Chemtrailing? Approaching storm? or just weaponized weather art in the heart of Atacama desert? Will see that in the news in the next day. Meanwhile enjoy as if you weren’t aware of the weather war going on:

While it may look like the pseudo-surrealist pap you’d find hanging in some naturopath dentist’s office, these are real pictures and videos of a real phenomenon: a so-called circumhorizontal arc appears below the very common 22-degree halo and some other more complex halos in the sky of Antofagasta, Chile on November 13, 2017:

US Scientists Made A Genetically Modified Human Embryo

geneticallymodifiedhuman

This is the first confirmed case of the gene editing of human embryos in the US and it gets scientists one step closer to the ability to create genetically engineered humans. Researchers in Portland, Oregon have used a powerful gene editing tool called CRISPR to create genetically modified human embryos, MIT Technology Review reported in an exclusive.

CRISPR, which is often compared to the cut-and-paste function on a word processor, is a powerful and comparatively new genetic engineering technique that allows scientists to make specific, targeted changes to the DNA of a plant, animal, or human. It’s relatively cheap and easy to use and has the potential to cure a wide range of diseases, such as muscular dystrophy or HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). But scientists seem to be using it to create designer humans and animals instead leading to ethics questions.

In 2015, Chinese scientists used CRISPR to make muscled beagles. But even beyond the often-stated fear that gene editing will lead to a world of designer babies and “genetic have-nots,” CRISPR is still new and may have consequences we don’t understand.

Several countries have a ban or at least some type of regulation on gene editing in human embryos, although as the use of CRISPR speeds up in the lab, regulations, and viewpoints continue to evolve as well. Earlier this year, the US National Academy of Sciences said that editing the DNA of human embryos could be allowed in order to cure disease, with certain safeguards in place; and scientists are going ahead.

According to Motherboard, teams in China have edited human embryos at least three times, and earlier this year, a Chinese team reported another first: using CRISPR to correct genetic mutations in three normal human embryos. (Previous tests were done on non-viable embryos that couldn’t have produced children. According toTechnology Review, the US experiment destroyed embryos after a few days, with no intention to implant them.) Scientists in the US watched developments in China “with a combination of awe, envy, and some alarm,” Technology Review reported.

It looks like Americans were more than eager to try CRISPR for themselves. And the creation of a gene-modified human could happen anytime. Hopefully, scientists will use the technology for the greater good and actually cure viruses and illnesses rather than to create perfect humans in jars.

Evidence mounts that plague outbreak in Africa is an engineered depopulation bioweapon

Thousands of people have been infected and over 143 are now reported dead from the plague outbreak that’s now threatening Africa, reports the UK Daily Mail. “Health officials are unsure how this year’s outbreak began,” reports the paper. “Experts warn the disease spreads quicker in heavily populated areas.”

Isn’t it interesting that just as Prince William is calling for “urgent depopulation efforts” in Africa, we suddenly have the rapid spread of the plague from unknown origins? As Natural News previously reported, Prince William appears to be pushing for depopulation efforts across Africa in the name of environmentalism:

“Africa’s rapidly growing human population is predicted to more than double by 2050 – a staggering increase of three and a half million people per month,” Prince William explained during a recent event hosted by the Tusk Trust, a charity that is committed to protecting African wildlife.

According to The Telegraph, Prince William continued, “Urbanization, infrastructure development, cultivation – all good things in themselves, but they will have a terrible impact unless we begin to plan and to take measures now.”

Want to eliminate blacks? Just release a weaponized disease strain and blame Mother Nature

What’s the quickest and easiest way for globalists to eliminate targeted human populations? Release a weaponized infectious disease and let it spread from city to city while using the outbreak to strengthen government funding of the vaccine and pharmaceutical industries. This, of course, is a form of medical genocide.

Yet as we’ve repeatedly seen, vaccines and pharmaceuticals are now confirmed to be routinely used to reduce targeted populations rather than save lives. Just last week, for example, a bombshell science paper was released that documents the covert infertility chemical being spiked into W.H.O. vaccines administered in African nations. From Vaccines.news:

[A] bombshell science paper has emerged that confirms the use of covert sterilization chemicals in World Health Organization vaccines deployed in Africa. Entitled, “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World,” the paper documents the covert deployment of an infertility chemical in vaccines that are administered to young black women in Kenya.

… [A] covert depopulation program is being run by the World Health Organization, targeting Africans for extermination via infertility chemicals administered under the guise of “vaccines.” These vaccines, notably, contain chemicals that are administered without the informed consent of the women being injected. In fact, the women are deliberately lied to and told the injections are meant to “protect your health.” But the real reason for the shots is to exterminate blacks in the name of “science” and “medicine.”

Local governments, in other words, told young African women they needed these vaccine injections for their own health and safety. But the real agenda was to cause their bodies to kill their own unborn babies as part of a globalist depopulation agenda. Africa is repeatedly chosen as a testing ground for weaponized depopulation viral and bacterial strains, by the way, which is one reason why so many deadly, hyper-aggressive diseases are found spreading in Africa.

African scientist alleges U.S. Dept. of Defense manufactured the Ebola outbreak of 2014

Never forget that the Ebola outbreak of 2014 took place in Africa, and to this day there are enormous questions about whether the U.S. Dept. of Defense manufactured/weaponized that Ebola strain. Dr. Cyril Broderick, a Professor of Plant Pathology, wrote in 2014 that he believes Ebola was manufactured and deliberately released in Africa as a weaponized viral strain.

His article, which originally appeared in The Liberian Observer, was later censored off that website. However, you can find his original article at InfiniteUnknown.net, or search for “weaponized Ebola” at GoodGopher.com.

Further supporting the notion of a weaponize Ebola release in Africa, Prof. Jason Kissner wrote in 2014:

We can now be extraordinarily confident that the U.S. government is lying, in key material respects, about the latest Ebola outbreak–and not just because it lies about nearly everything of political consequence. This article shows that there are compelling reasons to believe we are being told three big lies about Ebola. It also offers a simple, rational, yet disturbing, explanation that very tidily accounts for all three lies. The explanation supposes that the current Ebola outbreak consists in an act of U.S.-linked bioterror.

U.S. government PATENTED Ebola in 2010 and claims ownership over all the blood of Ebola victims

Further confirming the bioweapons origins of Ebola, we also know that the “impossibly rapid vaccine response” in 2014 was completely scripted. In addition, we also know the U.S. government patented the current Ebola strain in 2010, proving it was an invention. Ebola vaccines were already developed in advance of the outbreak, then rapidly rolled out in a staged “reaction” to the spread of the viral strain. As documented in Natural News:

On the very same day that vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline is being fined $490 million by Chinese authorities for running an illegal bribery scheme across China, the media is announcing the “astonishing” launch of human trials for an Ebola vaccine.

Care to guess who will be manufacturing this vaccine once it is whitewashed and rubber-stamped as “approved?” GlaxoSmithKline, of course. The same company that also admitted to a massive criminal bribery network in the United States, where felony crimes were routinely committed to funnel money to over 40,000 physicians who pushed dangerous prescription drugs onto patients.

This is the company that is now — today! — injecting 60 “volunteers” with an experimental Ebola vaccine. “Normally it would take years of human trials before a completely new vaccine was approved for use,” reports the BBC. “But such is the urgency of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa that this experimental vaccine is being fast-tracked at an astonishing rate.”

Yes, it’s astonishing because it’s impossible.

As any vaccine-related virologist already knows, the process of going from an in-the-wild infection of Ebola to a manufactured vaccine ready for human trials simply cannot be achieved in a matter of a few weeks or months. Apparently, we are all to believe that a spontaneous scientific miracle has now taken place — a literal act of vaccine magic — which has allowed the criminal vaccine industry to skip the tedious R&D phases and create a vaccine ready for human trials merely by waving a magic wand.

The far more likely explanation, of course, is that all this was scripted in advance: the outbreak, the international cry for help, the skyrocketing of the stock price for Tekmira (which has received financial investments from Monsanto), the urgent call for a vaccine and now the spontaneous availability of human vaccine trials. It’s all beautifully scripted from start to finish, better than a Shakespearean tragedy played out on the international stage.

The “heroes” of this theater have been pre-ordained to be drug companies and vaccines, and it is already written in the script that vaccines will be heralded as lifesaving miracles of modern science even if they infect people and cause widespread damage as has now happened to young girls in Colombia who are being hospitalized en masse after being injected with HPV vaccines.

W.H.O. antibiotics to be laced with infertility chemicals?

The plague outbreak in Africa will be met, of course, with a wave of antibiotics “treatments” for the citizens. Where do those antibiotics come from? The World Health Organization, of course… the same nefarious depopulation group that secretly spiked Africa’s vaccines with sterilization chemicals as now confirmed by a published science paper.

“The [plague] strain can be cured with antibiotics and the WHO money will go towards paying for extra medical personnel, the disinfection of buildings and fuel for ambulances,” reports the UK Daily Mail. In other words, the WHO will be running the mass medication campaign to distribute antibiotics to more Africans. This is the perfect opportunity for the WHO to spike antibiotics with infertility chemicals, thereby achieving its goal of causing spontaneous abortions, miscarriages, and infertility across the demographic of young African women.

According to reports, the WHO has pledged US$5 million to this effort. This money, of course, will be put to use distributing laced antibiotics to as many young African women as possible, all in the name of “public health.”

Summary of the early evidence pointing to the likelihood that the plague may have been engineered as a depopulation weapon

  • The timing of the plague spreading, just as globalists such as Prince William are calling for depopulation across Africa.
  • The ongoing push for depopulation as a “climate” narrative which claims human populations must be reduced to save the planet.
  • The realization that Africa’s current population explosion makes it the highest priority target for government-run depopulation efforts.
  • The likelihood that the U.S. government was deeply involved in the Ebola trial run which tested the effectiveness of a viral bioweapon release in Africa.
  • The history of vaccines, bioweapons and experimental pharmaceuticals being routinely tested across African nations.
  • The fact that the WHO has already been caught spiking Africa’s vaccines with infertility chemicals.
  • The fact that the WHO — the same organization caught spiking vaccines with infertility chemicals — will be funding the antibiotics distribution efforts in response to the plague outbreak. (Giving them the perfect chance to spike the antibiotics with infertility chemicals.)
  • The massive financial windfall accrued to pharmaceutical and vaccine companies stemming from any such outbreak (and subsequent media panic). In other words, every outbreak has a long list of beneficiaries who profit from disease.

Medical eugenics and the celebration of depopulation “successes”

In the end, the WHO will be cheered. The pharmaceutical industry will be heralded as the savior, and governments will claim victory as yet another outbreak is eventually tamed by what we’re told is a science-based medical advancement that saves lives. Yet the deeper truth that we’ve never told is how these same organizations and drug cartels are actually working to achieve global depopulation goals by any means necessary… even if it means deliberately causing an outbreak so that they can harness the public panic to deliver more infertility chemicals to more black people who are targeted for destruction.

If you don’t yet realize how blacks are systematically targeted for extermination across our planet, you don’t know the real history of science and medicine. I cover the five vectors of planned eugenics-based extermination in this mind-blowing video lecture that’s a “must watch” for all people of African ancestry:

Ozone Layer Collapse, A Former NASA Contract Engineer Warns Of Planetary Omnicide ( Dane Wigington )

We are told by “official” sources that the ozone layer is recovering, that we have nothing to worry about. This narrative is being pushed by power structure controlled agencies in order to pacify the public until the last possible moment. How close is that moment? If we remain on the current course, anthropogenic activities (with climate engineering at the top of the list) may completely destroy the ozone layer within the next decade or less.

Without the ozone layer, all terrestrial life on Earth (and most aquatic life) will perish. The “official” sources who tell us climate engineering isn’t happening, who tell us that we are only seeing “condensation trail” grid patterns in our skies, are the same agencies telling us the ozone layer is getting better.

Yet, the increasing intensity of UV radiation can be felt on the skin, on surfaces, is scorching foliage and tree trunks, and is sunburning whales and fish. The increasingly intense UV radiation from the disintegrating ozone layer can and is being metered by experts in the field. In this video a former NASA contract engineer discusses the immense and immediate UV radiation dangers we face from the disintegrating ozone layer which he is personally metering with state of the art equipment supplied through GeoengineeringWatch.org

Though the official ozone layer “recovery” lie is still being propagated, some sources are acknowledging reality as the truth becomes ever more difficult to hide. Global power structures are increasingly desperate to keep populations from panicking as the biosphere collapse accelerates.

The recent “ozone layer is recovering” official agency false narrative is a blatant example of the Orwellian world we now find ourselves in. We must think for ourselves, we must do objective investigation, we must examine the frontline facts for ourselves, we must use all available verifiable data to form our conclusions. Dane Wigington

USA approves BACTERIA weaponized mosquitoes to fight dengue, yellow fever and Zika

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved the use of a common bacterium to kill wild mosquitoes that transmit viruses such as dengue, yellow fever and Zika.
On 3 November, the agency told biotechnology start-up MosquitoMate that it could release the bacterium Wolbachia pipientis into the environment as a tool against the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus). Lab-reared mosquitoes will deliver the bacterium to wild mosquito populations.

The decision — which the EPA has not formally announced — allows the company, which is based in Lexington, Kentucky, to release the bacteria-infected mosquitoes in 20 US states and Washington DC.

“It’s a non-chemical way of dealing with mosquitoes, so from that perspective, you’d think it would have a lot of appeal,” says David O’Brochta, an entomologist at the University of Maryland in Rockville.“I’m glad to see it pushed forward, as I think it could be potentially really important.”

MosquitoMate will rear the Wolbachia-infected A. albopictus mosquitoes in its laboratories, and then sort males from females. Then the laboratory males, which don’t bite, will be released at treatment sites. When these males mate with wild females, which do not carry the same strain of Wolbachia, the resulting fertilized eggs don’t hatch because the paternal chromosomes do not form properly.

US government approves bacteria weaponized mosquitoes to fight disease, bacteria mosquitoes, us, usa approves bacteria to fight mosquitoes
US government approves ‘killer’ mosquitoes to fight disease. US Environmental Protection Agency will allow release of insects in 20 states and Washington DC.

The company says that over time, as more of the Wolbachia-infected males are released and breed with the wild partners, the pest population of A. albopictus mosquitoes dwindles. Other insects, including other species of mosquito, are not harmed by the practice, says Stephen Dobson, an entomologist at the University of Kentucky in Lexington and founder of MosquitoMate.

Production challenges

The EPA restricted the release of MosquitoMate’s product, called ZAP males, to 20 states and Washington DC. The agency has previously said that those places “are similar in temperature and precipitation to areas where efficacy of the ZAP males was tested” — Kentucky, New York and California. The EPA decision excludes much of the southeastern United States, which is home to dense populations of mosquitoes and a long mosquito season, because MosquitoMate did not conduct field trials there.

MosquitoMate plans to begin selling its mosquitoes locally, in Lexington, and will expand from there to nearby cities such as Louisville, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio. The company will work with homeowners, golf courses, hotels and other customers to deploy its insects, according to Dobson. “Now the work starts,” he says.

The company will have to start small. Suppressing the mosquito population of an entire city is likely to require the weekly production of millions of these mosquitoes. To reach that level, Dobson’s company must find a way to efficiently separate male mosquitoes from females. The company’s technicians now separate them both by hand and mechanically, Dobson says.

Another group that is also developing mosquitoes infected with Wolbachia to control wild populations has succeeded in producing large quantities of their insects. Researchers from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, and Michigan State University in East Lansing say they are releasing 5 million Wolbachia-infected A. albopictus each week in Guangzhou.

The scientists use mechanical sorters to separate males from females, on the basis of size differences at the pupal stage, at more than 99% efficiency, says Zhiyong Xi, a medical entomologist and microbiologist at Michigan State University, who leads the project. They expose the remaining mosquitoes to X-ray radiation at a dose that sterilizes any remaining females, but is too low to affect the males.

Looking ahead

Using lab-grown mosquitoes to kill mosquito pests has been tested extensively in Brazil in recent years. The country has allowed large-scale releases of such mosquitoes in response to an epidemic of the Zika virus that began in 2015. Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that has been linked to severe birth defects, such as abnormally small heads — a condition known as microcephaly. Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are thought to be the primary vector for the virus.

One type of mosquito being tested in Brazil is a genetically modified variety of A. aegypti developed by Oxitec in Milton, UK. When the modified male mosquitoes mate with wild females, they pass a lethal gene on to any progeny.

US government approves bacteria weaponized mosquitoes to fight disease, bacteria mosquitoes, us, usa approves bacteria to fight mosquitoes
Male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with Wolbachia bacteria are unable to produce offspring.

Oxitec has run into challenges when attempting to test its GM mosquitoes in the United States, however. A community in the Florida Keys voted last year against allowing Oxitec to conduct field trials there, although the rest of the county in which the community is located voted in favour of the plans.

By contrast, MosquitoMate has developed and tested a variety of Wolbachia-carrying A. aegypti mosquitoes in the Florida Keys and Fresno, California, without drawing much public attention. The EPA received only 14 comments during the public-comment period for the Florida trials, and most of them were positive. The company plans to submit an application to the EPA for nationwide release of that species, says Dobson.

Time To Talk About The Pyramids, Who Built Them & Why?

VIDEO:

A mind expanding episode of Freaky Friday as we go over the new findings coming out of The Great Pyramid in Egypt. Scientists have discovered a previously undetected, massive void & we speculate as to what may lie within the void and from there get into the pyramids encoded secrets. Just who built the pyramid? What was its purpose? And just where do we come from?
