☣️1/ Timeline proving UNC been constructing SARS #coronavirus chimeras since AT LEAST 2006 (!), bent on producing live attenuated vaccine (or offing us all, depends on how you see it). Thank you, Dr. #Fauci!

Please hold "Pandora's box" of public discussion wide open on this one.
2/ 2006:
a. Look at "we need a LAV because lab leaks of epidemic strains happen"
b. List of vaccine problems, including ADE (mentioning 1992 pub on fCoV)
c. Construction of pandemic-level chimeric icGDO3-S "challenge virus" with spike from 2003 SARS case

3/ This lab has a history of leaks. Like SARS mice escapes. Extremely humanised BLT-L were invented c. 2019, but we just don't know what those "simpler" 2014 mice were carrying - killler chimeras or live vaccine variants. Or if lab staff got infected.

This year, two of the MDs whose scholarly work on #climate I most admire, Dr Robin Stott (who wrote about his arrest in @TheLancet), & @SFU's @ttakaro, have engaged in nonviolent civil disobedience to protest our unconscionable lack of action to protect the health of children.
Dr @ttakaro took to the trees to block construction of #TMX after yrs of writing reports re the lack of a proper health impact assessment on #Transmountain Pipeline.
++ support by MD leaders on panel.
How did he decide to do this? Framework at link. @UBC thelancet.com/journals/lance…
❤️@margotparkes' slide showing a key shift: from an egocentric approach to humanity's relationship with the rest of the natural world, to one where we are in relationship with the rest of the ecosystem.

In this study, we have developed a fast and cost-effective method
for reverse genetics of coronaviruses by combining two approaches developed by others..As the genomes can be divided into multiple short fragments, mutations can be introduced into individual
fragments easily. ImageImageImageImage
