Every single day, billions of viruses apparently rain down on Earth, falling from the sky in what scientists claim is a cyclic, regular occurrence. Recently published research claims to explain why viruses that are genetically identical can be found in very distant, different environments all around the planet.
Published in the International Society for Microbial Ecology Journal, the study details how the researchers detected hundreds of millions of bacteria and viruses falling down out of the skies on a daily basis. Now here is the part that could get questionable to an objective onlooker who is familiar with the history of biological warfare: they claim the viruses are simply being swept up by things such as Saharan Desert sand.The team of international researchers observed and tried to put a number on the amount of viruses being swept up into the Earth’s free troposphere on a daily basis. The free troposphere is where nearly all weather events occur, as it is the lowest layer of the atmosphere. This is the atmospheric region where dust from the Saharan Desert sometimes travels.
In a statement, co-author of the study and virologist from the University of British Columbia Curtis Suttle said: “Every day, more than 800 million viruses are deposited per square metre above the planetary boundary layer – that’s 25 viruses for each person in Canada.”
It’s strange to think about viruses just resting in some Saharan Desert sand though, or other places waiting to be swept up into the atmosphere, given the way viruses are regularly thought of: as not really being alive, only thriving within some host.
In July 2016 Central Texas was supposedly hit with a wave of Saharan Desert dust.
The thing is, while large plumes of dust certainly do get swept up from the Saharan Desert and dragged around the world, and while most people are ignorant of some complicated scientific facts that should not be overlooked, such a cover for biological testing or warfare is completely perfect: an intelligence agent’s dream.
The desert dust thing can really happen, and governments can also use that as a cover for doing whatever other immoral and top secret things they are doing.
According to RT, “Bacteria and viruses are swept up into the atmosphere in small particles from soil-dust and sea spray.” Speaking of sea spray, remember Operation Sea Spray over San Francisco in the 50’s and 60’s? When bacteria was sprayed on San Francisco and the convenient disguise of foggy sea spray was used to cover up the death of at least one person from the infertility linked bacteria Serratia marcescens?
These researchers say that for thousands of miles, pathogens can be transported in the lower atmosphere before being deposited at different locations on Earth’s surface.
Microbial ecologist and another study co-author Isabel Reche from the University of Granada explained “Bacteria and viruses are typically deposited back to Earth via rain events and Saharan dust intrusions. However, the rain was less efficient removing viruses from the atmosphere.”
The conclusion was that while ecosystems, including human populations can be altered by the deposit of viruses and bacteria, it’s not all bad because “the deposits could help ecosystems adapt more quickly to enviroment changes,” according to RT.
So on one hand, it’s pretty amazing and interesting to know that viruses and bacteria rain down on Earth on a regular basis. It’s even amazing to know that dust from the Saharan Desert can travel across the planet. It’s beautiful and incredible.
But people need to keep their eyes on the people who report information like this, and closely examine whether or not the info could be used to cover up something else.
