Re: “Homeland Security releases key NBAF documents

Its clear from the D-EIS that the safest location to build the new lab is back on Plum Island. However I don't think that is the government's intent. After reading about Rift Valley Fever, and how it is spread by mosquitoes and ticks and how the eggs of infected mosquitoes when hatched,are infected and become a vector of disease, I had trouble wondering why anyone would want this lab near them. There will be an insectory at the facility housing insects that will be intentionally infected. Although the D-EIS says that the release of pathogens is 'low', the consequences of release are 'significant'. People, wake up, visit and learn what you can do. It is not too late. ( I hope not).
