I thought the article said Plum Island would remain. So if it's a run down shack now, wouldn't it just get worse? Wouldn't we want that kind of research in the newest, safest place we could get?

Finally, a budget cut that I can agree with.


Let the whole thing just colapse. Better yet... just burn the place down.

Dear omegacorps,

I think I understand you, but they must be doing level 4 work somewhere already. Do you happen to know why the new facility was proposed? Was it to replace the existing level 4? Or did they need new level 4 space for their work? Or. . .?

With respect,
Charles1952

Glad to hear this, since I live 10 miles from Plum Island and know the effects of these kinds of facilities. We have the highest rate of people and animals with Lyme's disease and mosquitos that carry heart worm and other crazy things. I swear last year when the closed the facility down we had a huge amount of mosquitos last year, more than normal. You couldn't step 10 feet out the house without having 6 mosquitos on you. I guess they released their inmates, the mosquito.


Plus I don't think it is ever necessary messing with mother nature.

Plum Island was being sold for $14 million, but I doubt anyone would ever want to live there. Killer insects AHHH

Such research has been done (and is still being done) in USAMRIID ... unless I am mistaken.

Also, many research hospitals and facilities are planning to 'get in the game' via DHS grant initiatives. More robust project management and resource networking allows for a less centralized approach to such research.... In other words, 'coming to a town near you' is not too far off..... and you may never know.

they want to move plumb island lab to manhattan kansas. from what i gathered it was going to be on keen st an manhattan ave. they wanted to make plum into a lv 4 and move it there. and close the island and sell the land. you can google earth and time line there construction it's quite extent. i think they just made it any way and said they cut the funding. IMO that is.

the road behind the building is called serum plant rd. for F*** sake.

All right, I suspect this is off-topic, and with a Mod on the thread I'll probably get shot or banned, but I want to thank all of you. I had never heard of level anything research facilities, and you have all been immense helps. This is ATS at it's finest, spreading knowledge on significant but underreported issues. Thanks again.

Now, where do you recommend I go to find out more about this work?

With respect,
Charles1952

it is all over really it just depends what side you want to look at it from. the montoak monsters and plumb island, camp hero and plumb island, or just the history of it. we started it with a nazi scientist brought over in " project paper clip " Erich Traub.

this is where i started. " project paperclip " and the SHTF from there on out. from crappy filters to some one going from positive air pressure to negative pressure. that simple mistake gave us lyme on deer ticks. among others.

I also live in Suffolk County. Did it occur to you that Lyme is correlated with deer and other animal population that's out of control? There are a few thousand deer living on the land occupied by BNL. Most people I know had car accidents involving a deer.

No labs on Plum means 100 less good jobs in Suffolk.
