Thanks for the information OP. Very interesting! I shall be watching this situation closely over the coming weeks.
I concur with what previous posters have mentioned about 'The Hot Zone'. Excellent book that really puts you in the picture as to where things might
end up in the era of global air travel and deforestation.
Know this - HIV/AIDS most likely originated from the clash of humans and apes in Africa. Viruses have been around for billions of years and like
bacteria, will be here long after we have gone. They are the ultimate survivors and we know next to nothing about what's out there, lurking.
With rampant deforestation, burgeoning and encroaching human populations eating bushmeat (anything that moves, crawls, walks, flies), its only a
matter of time before something jumps the species barrier and devestates humanity.
I'd put an odds on bet there'll be a global cataclysm that will seriously impact humanity between now and the end of the 21st century. Humanity
cannot go on raping, pillaging and violating the natural world before the natural world bites back. Big style!
