Silly republicans thought these were in Iraq.

[...] some extremophiles the researchers found in an Alaskan tunnel actually came to life as the ice around them melted. These bacteria had endured being frozen for 32,000 years and were able to go back to "business as usual" as they thawed out.

So we get this global warming thing going and the ice starts melting and these little buggers thaw out and go back to "business as usual". Soon after we find mysterious illnesses around the globe that are killing major players in the planet's food chain. Plants die off, animals die off... humans are next. I wonder if anyone will make the connection before mass extinctions take place - that some of these bacteria and virii were not good for other living things 32'000 years ago and are not good now.

Re: Biological Weapons in Alaska.

Yes, this thought has been in the back of my mind, especially with the discussion of the bird flu problem. Many bird species migrate to the arctic for mating and migrate home, meaning the birds could well carry and spread these diseases once they come out of the freezer. Well, that depends on some factors such as whether such diseases can affect birds and humans both.

Re: Biological Weapons in Alaska.

That is true. Maybe birds won't be effected, but can be carriers.

I was thinking that once the ice melts and these microbes are floating in the ocean, since world governments want to use these areas as shipping lanes, these microbes can attach themselves to the hull of these ships for a nice scenic cruise further south and directly into ports and harbors. Birds, rats, cats can then all be exposed.

This might be a long stretch and even to me sounds like a chicken-little story, but I think it could be a possibility.

I recall reading somewhere that Japan in WWII dropped plague-infested lice into Manchuria (Eastern China) in parachute-deployed clay pots as a cost-effective way of decimating the population before invasion.

Jonas Salk (inventor of the Polio vaccine) said "we will not die in a (nuclear) bang, but with a (mutated virus) whimper..."
