I think the Fake Humans did it.

Gas doesn't do what you might expect in industrial use or even in ponds, and is different in plastic lined ponds.

If there is filth in the environment then it will be in the storage tanks and Nitrogen reacts with it and attracts it to the tanks.

However Rense has turned it in to a movie with the Scientist working late at the lab and added the classic Tank Hazard accident of someone gong to inspect something and being killed.

That may not have been the reason why people were talking about it. People who die often move around especially if they have been near scientific experiments and it is probable that the scientist entered the air lock to the gas storage after he had died and operated the air lock.

People are concerned about what is going on in factories because they can destroy the environment.


"The Geelong Coroners Court heard Mr Nguyen may have entered the airlock to obtain a biological sample and to assess the room's air quality to update staff warning notices.

A message on a whiteboard and a post-it note declaring "low airflow" were used to warn staff that the room was unsafe. The room's oxygen level, displayed above the entrance to the chamber, was just 0.03 per cent.

Coroner Audrey Jamieson, who held the inquest in June last year, said yesterday Mr Nguyen's death was preventable, inexplicable and "can only be attributed to a level of complacency" at the laboratory.

"But Set Van Nguyen does not stand alone, there is evidence that complacency had become systemic in this workplace," she said.

12-13-1-------------------Over the past few weeks several world-acclaimed researchers, geniuses by many accounts, specializing in infectious diseases, as well as DNA sequencing have been found dead or have gone missing. I believe these scientists were unaware of their participation in the developing of a genetic bioweapon that will wipe out as much as one third of the population on planet earth.

In Novemeber, Dr. Benito Que, cell biologist working on infectious diseases like HIV was found comatose outside of his lab at the Miami Medical School.

Within of week of Dr. Que's assault, Dr. Don C Wiley, foremost infectious disease researcher was declared missing. His rental car was found with a full tank of gas and the keys in the ignition. His disappearance made to look like a suicide.

According to colleagues and Dr. Wiley's family, the Harvard Scientist associated with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute would NEVER commit suicide. Associates who attended the St. Jude's Children Research Advisory Dinner with Dr. Wiley, just hours before he disappeared, said that he was in good spirits and NOT depressed.

On November 23rd, Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, the foremost Soviet Biopreparat scientist who was responsible for aerosolizing plague and was the successful developer of binary weapons known as the 'Novichok group' of weapons was found dead.

Dr. Pasechnik defected from the Soviet Union in 1989 while visiting the UK where he lived until his death in November. There were NO media reports of his death for one full week. At that time, an official from the UK intel community announced that Dr. Pasechnik had 'a stroke.' No autopsy or futher details were forthcoming.

On December 10th, Dr. Robert M. Schwartz was found murdered in his secluded farmhouse in Leesberg, Va. Dr. Schwartz was a well-known DNA sequencing researcher. He founded the Virginia Biotechnology Association where he worked on DNA sequencing in his lab for 15 years.

Halfway around the world in December, a skilled microbiologist was killed at CSIRO's animal diseases facility in Geelong, Australia. He had logged 15 years' experience with the unit. Victoria Police said Set Van Nguyen, 44, appeared to have died after entering an airlock into a storage laboratory filled with nitrogen. His body was found when his wife became worried after he failed to return from work.

I believe there a cabal exists in the US and that this group is responsible for the anthrax hoax mailings of 1998 and the recent, deadly anthrax mailings of 2001. This cabal consists of some members from the highest levels of Government, the Military and the Biotech Industry. There appears to be a clandestine plan to develop a virulent infectious disease and quite possibly a 21st century version of the 1918 Spainish flu or other virus.

This pathogen is going to be genetically-altered to only infect a certain group of people. I believe that Dr. Wiley's research of immunity factors of viruses, bacterias and mycoplasmas will be used to create a pathogen that will NOT infect (will leave untouched) a designated genetic type.

This portion of the genetic target weapon was no doubt developed with research from Dr. Schwartz. In essence, a doomsday bioweapon can be released with a guarantee that the genetic code of certain individuals, and the virus itself, will protect these individuals from infection.

lori100: the telegraph-----------------China scientist claims Neil Heywood was murdered over 'unspeakable' secret ----------------British businessman Neil Heywood was murdered to prevent him revealing an "unspeakable" and "complicated" secret, one of China's top forensic scientists has claimed. --------------Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Ms Wang - who also is the vice-chairman of the Chinese Forensic Medicine Association - claimed it "was not possible that Gu did it just because someone had threatened her son". She also discarded the idea that a rumoured romance between Ms Gu and Mr Heywood had triggered the murder.

"I believe it was [a] killing to stop someone from disclosing a secret and that secret is not a sexual relationship, but bigger and more complicated, unspeakable," she said.

Ms Wang said she believed the true reasons behind Mr Heywood's murder would be traced back to the city of Dalian, where Bo Xilai was mayor between 1993 and 2000 and where Mr Heywood lived for a period in the 1990s, apparently working initially as an English teacher.

"The root is in northeast China," she said, where "they met and became good friends."

Ms Wang, who first questioned evidence in the case on her blog in September, admitted she had not had access to new or hidden evidence but said she had analysed and compared public documents relating to Ms Gu's trial and that of Chongqing's former police chief, Wang Lijun, who in September was convicted of attempting to cover up Mr Heywood's murder.

Analysts now expect Mr Bo to be put on trial after the 18th Party Congress, which should start on November 8 and will see China's new leadership unveiled.

lori100: the guardian-----------------Families of Iran's murdered nuclear scientists sue Israel, US and Britain

Judiciary asked to pursue complaint through international bodies in attempt to bring killers of five scientists to justice
--------------------The families of murdered Iranian nuclear scientists have filed a lawsuit against Israel, the US and the UK, accusing them of involvement in assassination.

Rahim Ahmadi Roshan, whose son, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a chemistry expert and director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, was killed in a bomb attack in January, told a press conference in Tehran that the families had asked Iran's judiciary to pursue their complaint through international bodies and bring those behind the killings to justice.

"We've filed an indictment against the Zionist regime and the arrogant powers," Roshan said. The judiciary "is to pursue this case with the relevant international bodies", he added.


Iran's state television broadcast purported confessions this month by 14 suspects in connection with the killing of five nuclear scientists since 2010. The channel showed pictures from a military barracks which it said was a training camp outside Tel Aviv in Israel where the suspects took courses, including on how to place magnetic bombs on cars – the method used in the killing of the scientists.

The suspects also acknowledged in the purported confessions that they received training in Israel.

Iran says the attacks are part of a covert campaign by Israel and the west to sabotage its nuclear programme, which the US and its allies suspect is aimed at producing nuclear weapons. Iran denies that.

Iran has blamed the Mossad as well as the CIA and MI6 for the assassinations, with support from some of Iran's neighbours. . The US and Britain have denied involvement in the killings. Israel has not commented.

Mansoureh Karami, the wife of the murdered Tehran University physics professor, Masoud Ali Mohammadi, said: "Through this complaint, we declare to the world that actions of arrogant governments, led by the US, Britain and the occupying Zionist regime, in assassinating nuclear scientists and elites is against human principles.

"While filing our complaint and announcing our protest, we resolutely declare that not only will such disgraceful acts not prevent the advancement of the children of this land in science, it will cause them to take more effective steps with greater determination," she said.

In May, Iran hanged Majid Jamali Fashi, 24, for the 2010 killing of Ali Mohammadi. Fashi, who said in televised confessions that he had been recruited by the Mossad, was convicted last August.Officials say the campaign against Iran includes the abduction of Iranian scientists, thesale of faulty equipment and the planting of the destructive computer worm Stuxnet, which hampered Iran's uranium enrichment activity in 2010.

lori100: Frank Olson: CIA Scientist Murdered for Moral Stand ---------------by Darryl Roskow

(henrymakow.com)





In the early morning hours of November 28th, 1953, Frank Olson -- a high-ranking clandestine chemical and biological weapons expert for the US army and CIA -- crashed through a closed window at the Hotel Pennsylvania in downtown Manhattan, plunging 13 stories to his death [1],[3],[10].

At the time, the media reported that Olson was a 'government scientist'. Olson's death was officially ruled to be a suicide [1],[10].

Years later, the CIA would admit to covertly dosing Olson with LSD -- nine days prior to his death.

Who Was Frank Olson?

Frank Olson was a top scientist involved in U.S. 'Deep State' covert biological and chemical weapons research, conducted for the US Army and CIA [1]. Olson began his career at the U.S. Army Germ Warfare facilities at Ft. Detrick, Maryland, joining shortly after it opened in 1943 [2].

Olson's son writes,

"My father was a research scientist who was involved with germ warfare, associated with the Special Operations division. That was the most top secret kind of research that was done out at Fort Detrick, and [was done] in coordination with the CIA" [3].

As 'Deputy Head of Special Operations', Olson was involved in MKULTRA, MKNAOMI, Project Artichoke, Project Bluebird, and MKDELTA [1],[7]. Olson specialized in aerosol delivery systems [10].

Olson's boss was CIA TSS chief and MKULTRA scientist Dr. Sydney Gottlieb who was in the employ of both the CIA and Lockheed at the time
-----------------------Atrocities in Progress:

During May and December of 1950, Olson witnesses CIA 'terminal experiments' in Germany, where unconsenting individuals are administered biological and chemical agents during 'interrogations', always resulting in death [2],[10]. The purpose is to broaden CIA knowledge of useful drugs for assassinations, interrogations, and mind control. [10]

During August 1951, Olson travels to Point-Saint-Espirit, France, where he is involved in a secret MKDELTA experiment known as Project SPAN [7]. An LSD-like ergot compound is covertly sprayed on the French public, resulting in mass psychosis and seven deaths [7].

During May 1953, Olson witnesses MI6 'terminal experiments' at Porton Down, U.K, where innocent soldiers (who think they are testing a cure for the 'common cold' are administered steadily increasing doses of Sarin nerve gas, resulting in horrible deaths [10]. The purpose is to determine the ED50 and LD50 of Sarin nerve gas in man [8],[10].


Pangs of Conscience:

Frank Olson began to have serious moral doubts about his involvement in government atrocities [1],[10],[12].

Olson privately expressed his moral objections to Dr. William Sargant (MI6) at Porton Down - conversations which Sargant secretly passed to CIA-higher-ups Sydney Gottlieb and CIA Director Allan Dulles [4],[9],[10].

The CIA became concerned that Olson was a security risk. So they arranged for an overnight scientific meeting of Ft. Detrick scientists at Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, which Olson was required to attend.

During this meeting, TSS chief Dr. Sydney Gottlieb secretly administered LSD to all the scientists, including Olson. The true purpose of this Deep Creek LSD party was "to trap [Olson]" [10],[11],[13] -- specifically, to see whether he would be likely to 'spill the beans' on the vast government criminal activity in chemical and biological weapons research.

Olson became livid upon learning of being dosed with LSD without his consent. The meeting at Deep Creek Lake confirmed to Olson the immorality of the men for which he worked.

Olson returned from Deep Creek to his wife and children, somber and lucid. He expressed an overwhelming desire to quit the CIA and biowarfare field entirely [1],[10],[12].

Olson immediately tendered his resignation to Ft. Detrick Special Operations Chief Vincent Ruwet [1].

The CIA had other plans.



Evidence for Murder:


CIA TSS Deputy Dr. Robert Lashbrook had already determined Olson to be a security risk" in a classified memo [13]. So the CIA convinced Olson to

attend a debriefing in New York before they would accept his resignation -- to which Olson traveled with Lashbrook in late November 1953 [10].

Several days later, on November 28th 1953, Olson was murdered by Dr. Robert Lashbrook -- who was in the hotel room when Olson plunged to the concrete below [10]. Lashbrook didn't even bother to go outside to see if Olson was still alive [13].

A hotel operator overheard a telephone call made Lashbrook from Olson's hotel room to a number in Long Island, a mere minutes after Olson's death outside. The phone call went like this [2],[3]:

CIA TSS Deputy Dr. Robert Lashbrook: "Well, he's gone." Other Party (likely CIA TSS Director Dr. Gottlieb): "Well, that's too bad"

<Both Individuals Hang Up>

In 1996, Olson's body was exhumed at the request of his family, and forensic expert James Starrs ruled his death to be a homicide [1]. Olson had sustained blunt force trauma to the temple, which occurred prior to Olson's 'fall'. Olson was likely struck with a heavy object by CIA deputy Robert Lashbrook, and then thrown out the window, as outlined in the declassified 1951 CIA Manual on Assassinations [10],[13],[14]. No charges were brought due to "lack of evidence" - due to the death of witnesses [13].


----------------------Frank Olson knew the deepest secrets of U.S. government scientific atrocities. These experiments spanned the globe, involving assassination, mind-control, biowarfare, and aerosol delivery of biological agents. The CIA considered Olson's conscience a national security risk, and so he was murdered.

The Curse of the Mummy - another conspiracy!

The curse of the mummy began when many terrible events occurred after the discovery of King Tut's tomb. Legend has it that anyone who dared to open the tomb would suffer the wrath of the mummy. Because mummies have been associated with many magical powers throughout history, some of the mummies found from Egypt were ground into a fine powder and sold as mystical mummy powder. It's believed the powder had magical healing powers and it wasn't until the discovery of King Tut and the hype of the media that things would change forever.

The hype began when Lord Carnarvon, the person who funded the dig of King Tut’s Tomb, died shortly after the discovery. The path to his death began in the spring of 1923 when he was bitten on the cheek by a mosquito. During his morning shaving routines, he further aggravated the mosquito bite. It soon became infected and Lord Carnarvon found himself ill. He suffered a high fever and chills. A doctor was sent to examine him but medical attention arrived too late and Lord Carnarvon died. At that exact moment the lights in Cairo mysteriously went out.

Once Carnarvon died the media went wild with stories of his death. They claimed King Tut wanted vengeance and announced a mummy's curse, which targeted those who had entered the tomb. Not only did the death of Carnarvon get all the people in an uproar but other stories began to surface as well. Of the stories that surfaced, two remain prominent. One of the prominent stories is that a cobra killed Howard Carter's (explorer who discovered King Tut’s burial place) pet canary after the discovery of King Tut's tomb. The other story is that Lord Carnarvon's dog howled and dropped dead at two in the morning when Carnarvon died.

What is interesting is that Howard Carter lived a decade after this major discovery. So what happened to Howard Carter during all this hype? Howard Carter spent his last years logging and recording every artifact found in the tomb. Why didn't he suffer the curse of the mummy? He was, after all, the first to enter the tomb.

Did King Tut's Tomb really unleash a curse? New findings are showing that bacteria on the wall of the tomb might have been the cause of the curse. The bacteria would release spores into the air allowing it to be breathed. This in turn caused people who came into contact with these spores to become ill. Could this be what killed Lord Carnarvon? It appears that this could have contributed to his demise, as well as the fact that he was not in the best of health.

Whether the mummy’s curse is fact or fiction, this story seems to interest people even today. The myth of the curse has remained with King Tut and continues to make people question as to whether the curse was really unleashed. What is known is that when you mix propaganda, facts, and hype you get a story that can be exciting. It all really comes down to one question. Do you believe in the curse of the mummy? We will leave that for you to decide.

Whether the mummy’s curse is fact or fiction, this story seems to interest people even today. The myth of the curse has remained with King Tut and continues to make people question as to whether the curse was really unleashed. What is known is that when you mix.

He was one of three faculty members killed in a shooting at the university on February 12, 2010.[2] He was chairperson of the university's department of biological sciences, with a particular interest in the ecology of Populus and their mycorrhizal symbionts. ---------------He listed his research interests as "engineering tree biomass for bioenergy, functional genomics of plant-microbe interactions, plant molecular biology and biotechnology".

Bull was assassinated outside his apartment in Brussels, Belgium in March 1990.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Majid Shahriari (c. 1966 Zanjan– 29 November 2010 Tehran)[1] was a nuclear engineer who worked with the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

He specialized in neutron transport, a phenomenon that lies at the heart of nuclear chain reactions in reactors and bombs. According to The Guardian, he "had no known links to banned nuclear work".[2] According to Al Jazeera he "was a quantum physicist and was not a political figure at all" and he "was not involved in Iran's nuclear programme".[3]

According to Time magazine, Majid Shahriari was the top scientist and senior manager of Iran's nuclear program.[4]

Some Iranian media reports reports said he taught at the Supreme National Defense University, which is run by the Iranian Army, according to the New York Times.[5] Shahriari published dozens of esoteric conference reports and peer-reviewed articles on nuclear research.[citation needed]

On 29 November 2010, unidentified assailants riding motorcycles launched separate bomb attacks, killing Shahriari and injuring nuclear scientist Fereydoon Abbasi, a professor at Shahid Beheshti University where Shahriari also taught. Dr. Abbasi's wife was also hurt.[6] The killers had attached bombs to the professors' cars and detonated them from a distance.[5]

Iranian officials have variously blamed Israel and the United States for assassinating Shahriari. Saeed Jalili, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, was quoted as saying Western nations "exercise terrorism to liquidate Iran's nuclear scientists".[7]

ghostgeek: Lori, you certainly do your research but I wonder if, as a group, scientists are any more likely to die a violent death than any other group in society. Are scientists statistically more likely to be killed than, say, doctors? Have you got information that shows scientists, as a group, more prone to be murdered than their numbers would suggest? After all, we must expect a few scientists will get murdered over time, just as we would expect the same to happen to pastry cooks.
