This right here sounds like the plot of a sci-fi movie or a resident evil reboot where all the people who are 5 x boosted turn into zombies and begin to attack the rest of the population who got 3 or less however, this is real, and reported by Mainstream media. This is not from a resident evil movie.
An article published by 9News discusses the potential risks of ancient viruses, which have been lying dormant for tens of thousands of years in the Arctic permafrost, being released into the environment as a result of climate change. As the permafrost thaws due to warming temperatures, viruses that could endanger animal and human health could be unleashed. Jean-Michel Claverie, a professor of medicine and genomics, has been studying ancient viruses and discovered several strains that could still infect amoeba cells after being frozen for almost 48,500 years. Claverie’s research shows that while the risks of ancient viruses coming back to life are low, they are underappreciated, and the consequences could be severe for human health.
Additionally, the release of chemical and radioactive waste from the Cold War era is another concern associated with the thawing of permafrost. The Arctic was a major site for the testing and storage of nuclear weapons during the Cold War, and many of the resulting waste materials were buried in permafrost to prevent contamination. However, with the thawing of permafrost, these hazardous materials could be released into the environment, causing harm to wildlife and potentially contaminating the food chain.
“There’s a lot going on with the permafrost that is of concern, and (it) really shows why it’s super important that we keep as much of the permafrost frozen as possible,”said Kimberley Miner, a climate scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California.
While the risks associated with the thawing of permafrost are concerning, it is important to note that the likelihood of a pandemic caused by a zombie virus is HIGHLY, and I repeat, HIGHLY, unlikely. The viruses that have been revived from permafrost thus far have only been shown to infect amoebas, and there is no evidence to suggest that they can infect animals or humans for that matter. This is another case of Mainstream media trying to create hysteria as they so frequently do, on the back of a fake pandemic.
In conclusion, the thawing of permafrost in the Arctic does not pose the number of risks described by CNN and 9News. Including the potential release of ancient viruses and hazardous waste materials from the Cold War era, in which they mentioned. While the risks are highly unlikely, I’m in support of scientists taking their own threats seriously and working to mitigate their potential impacts. They need a day job.
