Students' take-home assignment: Census kits
Link By Haya El Nasser, USA TODAY
Anyone tempted to ignore the 2010 Census will have a tough time doing it — especially if they have kids in school.
The government has launched Census in Schools, an all-out campaign targeting superintendents, principals, teachers, students and, indirectly, parents, as schools open across the nation this month and next. The message: The Census is coming and here's why everyone should care.
The goal is to send posters, teaching guides, maps and lesson plans to every school in the nation, Puerto Rico and U.S. island territories to encourage everyone to participate in the national count. The materials will land in more than 118,000 schools and reach 56 million students.
"It's great to reach the children because children are such strong voices in their homes," says Renee Jefferson-Copeland, chief of the Census schools program. "In households that are linguistically isolated, they can express the information to their parents."
The school effort is more ambitious than in 2000, the last time the government set out to count everyone. At that time, teachers had to request the material and it was available only in print. Now, the kits and lessons will arrive in every school and lesson plans can be downloaded online, where they will be available in 28 languages.
The Constitution mandates a complete population count every 10 years. The tally — down to the city block — helps redraw political boundaries and determine states' representation in Congress and the distribution of more than $400 billion in federal funds to state and local governments every year.
"It's extremely important for us," says Michael McGrady, associate director for partnership development at the National Head Start Association, which promotes school readiness for low-income children and their families. "Historically, Head Start families have been undercounted and that has a negative effect on their communities."
Between January and March, the Census Bureau will help plan a week of Census education in schools. During Census Week, teachers will devote 15 minutes every day for five days to the topic by discussing such things as civic participation, confidentiality or geography. Beginning in mid-March, more than 120 million Census questionnaires will be delivered to residential addresses.
The Census Bureau is partnering with Sesame Street to extend the 2010 Census message to preschoolers and adult caregivers. Under consideration: Using Sesame Street characters on Census materials and having characters participate in school events and public service announcements.
The Department of Homeland Security on Thursday released new directives covering border searches of electronic devices and media, but the government's rules leave open the question of whether individuals can be compelled to provide passwords and encryption keys.
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in a statement characterized the rules as an attempt to balance the investigatory requirements for fighting crime and terrorism with privacy and civil liberties.
In February, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to reconsider an appeals court ruling that laptops are like suitcases and can be searched at borders without reasonable suspicion.
Laptop searches remain an unusual event for travelers entering the country. More than 221 million travelers passed through U.S. ports of entry between Oct. 1, 2008, and Aug. 11, 2009, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). These entries resulted in about 1,000 laptop searches, only 46 of which were in-depth.
Nevertheless, the DHS policy of treating laptops and electronic devices as the equivalent of suitcases and backpacks in terms of border searches has alarmed business travel and privacy groups.
The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) claim that the government's right to seize, copy, and store information on electronic devices undermines the ability of businesses to protect confidential information and establishes an end-run around Fourth Amendment protection. They argue that the contents of an electronic device are particularly personal and that such devices shouldn't be governed by the rules for suitcases.
Marcia Hofmann, staff attorney at the EFF, says the new directives appear to be largely the same as past policy, although they do provide welcome specificity about border search procedures. "For example, the July 2008 border search policy issued by CBP said that agents could detain devices or copies for a 'reasonable period of time to perform a thorough border search,' but it wasn't clear what a 'reasonable period of time' was," she explained in an e-mail. "The new directives specify actual time lines, which is a positive change."
Hofmann, however, said there is still room for improvement. The rules, she said, "still allow agents to search devices and information with no suspicion whatsoever that a traveler has committed any wrongdoing. I also think the question of how agents handle sensitive information remains very murky."
About two weeks ago, Nate Cardozo, open government legal fellow at the EFF, asked CPB through its online comment system, "If a CBP agent requests my password or encryption key and I refuse to provide it, will I be denied entry, will my laptop be seized, neither or both?"
The response, from a CPB employee identified as Frederick, was: "There is no concrete answer that can be given to your question since it is hypothetical. The outcomes you listed are possible, although a US citizen would not normally be denied entry. The actions that result from a denial to cooperate with a legal search are dependent on the applicable laws as well the discretion of the officers conducting the inspection."
In other words, a CBP officer could decide to detain a traveler who refused to provide the government with access to his or her device and data.

Monsanto: History of Contamination and Cover-up link By Barbara Minton
Natural Health Editor
The new Monsanto has clearly come to dominate the American food chain with its genetically modified (GM) seeds. It's a master at enforcing its 674 biotechnology patents, using tyrannical and ruthless tactics against small farmers. This new Monsanto has also moved into the production of milk with it artificial growth hormones, seeking to dominate the dairy industry as effectively as it has the seed business. Has this new corporate image made us forget about the old Monsanto's decades long history of scorched earth and toxic contamination?
An article in the May, 2008 edition of Vanity Fair chronicles the history of Monsanto from its beginnings to its efforts to shed itself of the image of toxic environmental and human threat.
A short history
Monsanto was founded in 1901 by John Francis Queeny who had an idea to make money manufacturing saccharin, an artificial sweetener then imported from Germany. He called his company Monsanto Chemical Works. The German cartel then controlling the market for saccharin tried to force Queeny out of business, but his persistence and the loyalty of one steady customer, Coca-Cola, kept the company going. Vanillin, caffeine, sedative drugs, laxatives and aspirin had been added to the arsenal of products when supplies were cut off from Europe during World War I, forcing Monsanto to manufacture its own, and positioning it as a leading force in the American chemical industry.
In the 1920's, Queeny's son took over and built Monsanto into a global powerhouse, extending into the production of an astounding array of plastic, rubber and vinyl goods, fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides.
In the 1970's Monsanto moved into biotechnology. By 1982 it had become the first to genetically modify a plant cell, making it possible to introduce virtually any gene into plant cells to improve crop productivity. According to Vanity Fair writers Donald L. Barlett and James B. Steele, Monsanto sought to portray GM seeds as a panacea for alleviating poverty and feeding the hungry.
During the late 1990's, Monsanto spun off its chemical and fibers businesses into a new company called Solutia. It then reincorporated itself and emerged as an agricultural company.
Company literature refers to Monsanto as a "relatively new company" with the primary goal of helping "farmers around the world in their mission to feed, clothe and fuel" the planet. The listed corporate milestones are from the recent era. There is no mention of the old Monsanto's potential responsibility for more than 50 Environmental Protection Agency Superfund sites. And it does not mention that the reason for the formation of Solutia was to channel the bulk of the mounting chemical lawsuits and liabilities into the spun off company, keeping the new Monsanto name tarnish-free.
But keeping the new corporate image polished may be a tough task. For many years Monsanto produced two of the most toxic substances ever known -- polychlorinated biphenyls, known as PCBs, and dioxin. Several court proceedings regarding these substances remain unresolved.
In the town of Nitro, West Virginia, Monsanto operated a chemical plant from 1929 to 1995, making an herbicide that had dioxin as a by-product. The name dioxin refers to a group of highly toxic chemicals that have been linked to heart and liver disease, human reproductive disorders, and developmental problems. Dioxin persists in the environment and accumulates in the body, even in small amounts. In 2001, the U.S. government listed dioxin as a "known human carcinogen".
In 1949, at the Nitro plant, a pressure valve blew on a container of this herbicide, producing a plume of vapor and white smoke that drifted out over the town. Residue coated the interior of buildings and those inside them with a fine black powder. Within days, workers experienced skin eruptions, and many were diagnosed with chloracne, a long lasting and disfiguring condition. Others felt intense pains in their chest, legs and trunk. A medical report from the time said the explosion "caused a systemic intoxication in the workers involving most major organ systems." Doctors detected a strong odor coming from the patients they described as men "excreting a foreign chemical through their skins".
Monsanto downplayed the incident, saying that the contaminant was "fairly slow acting" and only an irritant to the skin.
Meanwhile, the Nitro plant continued to produce herbicides, In the 1960's it manufactured Agent Orange, the powerful herbicide used by the U.S. military to defoliate jungles during the Vietnam War, and which became the focus of lawsuits by veterans contending they had been harmed by exposure to the chemical. Agent Orange also created dioxin as a by-product.
At the Nitro plant, dioxin waste went into landfills, storm drains, streams, sewers, into bags with the herbicide, and then the waste was burned out into the air. Dioxin from the plant can still be found in nearby streams, rivers, and fish. Residents have sued Monsanto and Solutia for damages, but Monsanto claims "the allegations are without merit" and promises to vigorously defend itself. The suit may drag on for years. Monsanto has the resources to wait; plaintiffs usually don't.
From 1929 to 1971, the Anniston, Alabama plant produced PCBs as industrial coolants and insulating fluids for transformers and other electrical equipment. PCBs became central to American industries as lubricants, hydraulic fluids, and sealants. PCBs are highly toxic members of a family of chemicals that mimic hormones, and have been linked to damage in the liver and nervous system, as well as immune, endocrine and reproductive disorders. The Environmental Protective Agency (EPA), and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, part of Health and Human Services, classify PCBs as "probably carcinogens".
Today, after tons of contaminated soil have been removed in an effort to reclaim the Anniston site, the area around the old Monsanto plant continues to be one of the most polluted spots in the U.S. While the plant was in production, excess PCBs were dumped in a nearby open-pit landfill or allowed to flow off the property with storm water. Some were poured directly into a creek running alongside the plant and emptying into a larger stream. PCBs are contained in private lawns fertilized with soil from the plant.
The people of Anniston have breathed air, planted gardens, drunk from wells, fished in rivers, and swum in creeks contaminated with PCBs without knowing the danger. As public awareness grew in the 1990's, health authorities found elevated levels of PCBs in houses, yards, streams, fields, fish -- and people. The cleanup is now underway, and will take years, but once PCB is absorbed into human tissue, it is there forever.
Monsanto closed its PBC plant in Wales in 1977. In recent years, residents of Groesfaen, in southern Wales, have noticed vile odors emanating from an old quarry outside their village. As it turns out, Monsanto dumped thousands of tons of waste from its nearby PCB plant into the quarry. British authorities have identified the site as one of the most contaminated places in Britain.
What did Monsanto know about the potential dangers of the chemicals it manufactured? Information from court records indicates Monsanto knew quite a lot. The evidence that Monsanto refused to face questions about the toxicity of PBCs is clear.
In 1956, the company tried to sell its PCB containing hydraulic fluid, Pydraul 150, to the navy. Monsanto supplied the navy with test results from the product, but the navy decided to do its own testing. As a result, navy officials informed Monsanto that they would not buy the product, saying that "application of Pydraul 150 caused death in all of the rabbits tested" and indicated "definite liver damage". According to an internal Monsanto memo divulged during a court proceeding, "no matter how we discussed the situation, it was impossible to change their thinking that Pydraul 150 is just too toxic for use in submarines", stated Monsanto's medical director.
In 1966, a biologist conducting studies for Monsanto in streams near the Anniston plant submerged test fish. He reported to Monsanto that, "All 25 fish lost equilibrium and turned on their sides in 10 seconds and all were dead in 3 _ minutes."
The company swung into action to limit the PR damage when the Food and Drug Administration found high levels of PCBs in fish near the Anniston plant in 1970. An internal memo entitled "Confidential -- F.Y.I. and Destroy" from a Monsanto official, reviewed steps to limit disclosure of the information. One aspect of the strategy was to get public officials to fight Monsanto's battle: "Joe Crockett, Secretary of the Alabama Water Improvement Commission will try to handle the problem quietly without release of the information to the public at this time," according to the memo.
The plant manager of Monsanto's Anniston site "convinced" a reporter for The Anniston Star that there was nothing to worry about. An internal memo from Monsanto's headquarters in St. Louis, summarized the story that subsequently appeared in the newspaper: "Quoting both plant management and the Alabama Water Improvement Commissions, the feature emphasized the PCB problem was relatively new, was being solved by Monsanto and, at this point, was no cause for public alarm."
The real truth is that there was huge cause for public alarm for the harm done to the public by Monsanto. But that was the old Monsanto, not today's shiny new Monsanto. Today's Monsanto says it can be trusted -- that its biotech crops are "as wholesome, nutritious and safe as conventional crop", and that the milk produced from cows injected with its artificial growth hormones is identical to the milk from untreated cows.
Behind a chain-link fence in a far corner of Nitro, workers continue to tear down and clean up what is left of the former Monsanto Co. chemical plant.
A month ago, rusted old chemical tanks littered the site along the Kanawha River. Today, it is mostly piles of concrete and other rubble.
Across town, other remnants of Monsanto's 50-year history remain hidden in the dust inside residents' homes and in the dirt of their backyards.
Dozens of homes in this community are polluted with what residents fear are dangerous levels of the toxic chemical dioxin, according to records filed in court and with government agencies.
Tests also show that some longtime residents have measurable amounts of dioxin in their blood.
"The town of Nitro is contaminated," said Charleston lawyer Stuart Calwell.
In December, Calwell sued Monsanto and several related companies to try to force a cleanup.
Calwell also is trying to get medical testing and compensation for people like Jimmy Agee, a 69-year-old former Union Carbide worker and lifelong Nitro resident.
"My house is basically worthless," Agee said. "It's full of dioxin. This place is eaten up with it. Who wants to buy a house with this stuff in it?"
Nobody knows what this dioxin contamination is doing to residents. Nobody has really tried to find out.
In Minnesota, federal regulators found much lower levels of dioxin in household dust near a former wood-treatment plant. Two months ago, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ordered the company to clean up the homes.
But in Nitro, nobody has done anything - until now.
Last week, the EPA asked another federal agency, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, to study the matter.
EPA officials also said their staff scientists will examine dioxin samples that Calwell provided after collecting them as part of his lawsuit against Monsanto.
"We're concerned about people's health," said David Sternberg, a spokesman for the EPA's regional office in Philadelphia.
"If data comes in, we would evaluate it to determine if we have to take action or perform more evaluation," Sternberg said.
A new molecule is born
On Dec. 23, 1917, Nitro was born as a literal World War I boomtown.
That day, the federal government broke ground on the first of 27, 200-bed barracks at the site of the present Nitro city park, according to a history of the town by William D. Wintz.
The site, about 15 miles from Charleston, became home to one of the War Department's large gunpowder plants. The name "Nitro" came from the chemical term Nitro-Cellulose, which was the type of gunpowder to be produced.
When the war ended, private companies took over the government buildings, and converted them into chemical plants.
Monsanto Co. acquired its Nitro site from Rubber Services Industries. The company made rubber chemicals for the tire industry.
In about 1947, Monsanto's agricultural division designed a new molecule. In its pure form, this molecule was called 2,4,5- trichlorophenoxyacidic acid, or 2,4,5-T.
This new substances killed plants. It made their roots outgrow their leaves. Plants destroyed themselves through defoliation.
In 1949, Monsanto started making this powerful herbicide ingredient in Nitro.
Workers cooked batches of it in large pots, called autoclaves, rather than making it through a continuing production stream.
Monsanto made 2,4,5-T in Nitro for more than 30 years.
In its best-known use, the federal government bought 2,4,5-T to make Agent Orange, the defoliant deployed widely in the Vietnam War. About 11 million gallons of Agent Orange was sprayed on the jungles of Vietnam, Vietnamese citizens and U.S. soldiers.
But 2,4,5-T was contaminated. Every batch of it contained 2,3,7,8 tetrachlorodibenzo-para-dioxin. This chemical is also known as 2,3,7,8 TCCD - or, more commonly, as dioxin.
Dioxin has been linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities, endometriosis, infertility and suppressed immune functions. The chemical builds up in tissue over time, meaning that even small exposures can accumulate to dangerous levels.
In the December lawsuit, filed in Putnam Circuit Court, Calwell explained that much of the dioxin waste from the Monsanto plant made its way into the Kanawha River. Residents are urged not to eat certain fish because they contain unsafe levels of the chemical.
But, the lawsuit alleged, Monsanto also was the source of dioxin- contaminated dust. Once airborne, the dust "was carried by prevailing winds over the town of Nitro, surrounding communities and the plaintiffs' homes and businesses," the lawsuit alleged.
Residents have sought to have their case declared a class action on behalf of more than 25,000 current or former Nitro residents.
No 'big alarm'
In May 2004, Calwell hired a contractor to collect dust samples from Nitro homes. He hired a lab to test those samples for dioxin. The contractors tested more than a dozen homes. They found levels of dioxin that ranged from 16 parts per trillion to 1,210 parts per trillion.
There are no regulatory standards for dioxin in indoor dust. But the EPA's recommended cancer guideline is 4.3 parts per trillion. The state's cleanup trigger for residential soils is 3.9 parts per trillion.
In February, Calwell sent the EPA and the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection letters about the test results.
Randy Sturgeon, an EPA chemical engineer and project manager, said the data did not "raise a big alarm" inside his agency.
"We came to the conclusion that it was not a health threat that warranted further investigation on our part," Sturgeon said in mid- June.
At the DEP, officials have decided to let federal regulators handle the situation.
"I feel more comfortable with EPA in the lead," said Ken Ellison, director of the DEP's Division of Land Restoration. "I believe that EPA has more resources and more levels of support than we do."
The latest in the dioxin battle
The December lawsuit is far from Calwell's first battle with Monsanto over dioxin.
In the mid-1980s, Calwell spent more than 10 months in trial trying to prove that seven Monsanto workers were made sick by handling dioxin-contaminated 2,4,5-T.
A federal court jury returned a verdict against the workers. After the trial, Calwell and his clients blamed rulings by U.S. District Judge John T. Copenhaver to not allow some of the workers' key evidence, according to press reports from the time. Among other things, Copenhaver would not let Calwell use an EPA map showing dioxin contamination at the Nitro plant in 1983 - more than a decade after Monsanto stopped making its contaminated herbicide.
In 1983 and again in 1985, the EPA and Monsanto agreed to deals under which the company was to clean up the Nitro site.
Today, though, the area remains polluted.
In a July 2000 report, the EPA said the Kanawha River contains unsafe and illegal levels of dioxin. The EPA said it should be cleaned up, but the agency proposed no specific steps and has not ordered any action.
In August 2000, Calwell sued Monsanto on behalf of a group of residents along Heizer and Manila creeks near Nitro. The residents allege that the dumping of dioxin wastes by the company polluted their properties.
The residents sought to expand the Supreme Court's 1999 "medical monitoring" ruling to also allow lawsuits to force polluters to pay for property monitoring. In December 2002, the court declined to do so. That lawsuit continues, though, as residents seek other damages for Monsanto's pollution.
Meanwhile, Monsanto lawyers have cited the 1983 and 1985 EPA orders as reason for the Heizer/Manila lawsuit and the more recent Nitro case to be dismissed.
Charles Love, one of Monsanto's lawyers, argued that the EPA orders pre-empt any effort by the residents to sue. If the EPA has or is taking action, Love argued, then residents cannot file their own lawsuit.
In Putnam Circuit Court, Judge O.C. Spaulding rejected Love's argument.
Last week, Love sought to move the case to U.S. District Court in Charleston.
In an interview last month, he said he had not examined Calwell's dioxin test results.
"We're too early in the litigation to have reached that point," Love said.
Glynn Young, a Monsanto corporate media spokesman, said the company did not take Calwell's test results too seriously.
"Yes, these kinds of things need to be looked into, and if this information had come from anybody but a plaintiffs' attorney, it might have been handled differently," Young said.
"Lawsuits of this nature are not uncommon," Young said. "This is what a lot of people do for a living. We have been down this road before with Mr. Calwell 20 years ago."
Two cases, different result
In north-central Minnesota, St. Regis Paper Co. operated a wood- treatment plant for more than 30 years. The 125-acre site northeast of Duluth is on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation between Pike Bay and Cass Lake.
Starting in the 1950s, lumber was pressure treated with creosote and chemicals called pentachlorphenol and copper chromium arsenate. This process generated various types of pollution, including dioxin and arsenic.
In 1984, the EPA added the site to its Superfund program, putting it on the priority list for toxic waste cleanups.
In October 2004, contractors tested homes in the area for dioxin dust. They found concentrations ranging from 0.234 parts per trillion to 240 parts per trillion.
The EPA said in a report that, "the amount of indoor dust concentration from the site exceeded what the EPA considers to be acceptable for six of the 10 homes sampled."
As a result, the EPA proposed to order International Paper, which now owns the site, to clean up the homes.
The science behind such an action is fairly new. The EPA based it on work done to study and clean up the former World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan.
"We're taking a conservative approach to what we've found," said Tim Drexler, the EPA's project manager for the cleanup.
In Nitro, the median dioxin dust concentration for the 33 homes Calwell tested was 238 parts per trillion - roughly the same as the highest concentration the EPA found at the Minnesota homes.
EPA officials say they are not convinced the numbers can be accurately compared.
In Minnesota, the dust samples were taken from living areas inside the homes. In Nitro, Calwell's firm collected dust from attics and crawl spaces.
Sturgeon, the EPA project manager in Nitro, said the living-area samples more accurately reflect ongoing exposure. But Sturgeon agreed with Calwell that attic samples give a better estimate of how much dioxin has been in the home over a longer period of time - say, since the Monsanto plant last made 2,4,5-T in the early 1970s.
"If you want to know, over history, what accumulation of dioxin you had in a home, attic dust is one of the few places you could look," Sturgeon said.
'Wouldn't you be concerned?'
Since he filed the lawsuit, Calwell has collected more dust samples in Nitro.
In court, he also is trying to halt the efforts of Monsanto to shed itself of any liability for pollution of the Nitro area. He hopes to avoid having that liability wiped out as part of a bankruptcy proceeding for one of Monsanto's successor companies.
At the EPA's regional office in Philadelphia, officials have agreed to re-examine the Nitro situation based on the additional dust samples.
In Charleston, officials from the state Bureau for Public Health's ATSDR program are reviewing that data at the EPA's request.
Barbara Smith, an epidemiologist with that program, said she is not sure yet if the data Calwell collected will give her agency enough to do a complete study.
"Just getting numbers is not going to be enough," Smith said. "We've got numbers, but we're not sure we have enough data."
If that's the case, Smith said, her agency might ask the EPA to do its own sampling to provide adequate data for a study.
Eric Carlson, an EPA liaison officer in Wheeling, said it would not be fair to say his agency is not doing anything about the dioxin problem in Nitro.
Carlson cited a March 2004 EPA deal in which Monsanto agreed to do a new study of dioxin contamination in the Kanawha River. As a result of that deal, contractors for Monsanto performed new fish sampling in the Kanawha.
"I wouldn't say nobody is doing anything," Carlson said. "There is a significant amount of work being done about the river."
Residents say more studies of the river are small consolation for them.
"I'm concerned about the damage that has been done," said Ross Stone, who has lived in Nitro for 55 years and in the same house for 52 years. "I'm interested to find out just exactly what the outcome is going to be, how it affects people."
Joan Dixon, a 45-year Nitro resident, said, "There's dioxin in my attic, and in my yard, too. Wouldn't you be concerned?"

Non-GMO’ Seal Identifies Foods Mostly Biotech-Free
Alarmed that genetically engineered crops may be finding their way into organic and natural foods, an industry group has begun a campaign to test products and label those that are largely free of biotech ingredients.
Over twenty years ago, the CIA and U.S. military perfected a subconscious mind skill called Remote Viewing (or RV) that unlocked the mind's inherent ability to foresee future events and obtain intuitive knowledge about any person, place or thing on an unprecedented level. This skill was first used by a specially trained military team to locate downed aircraft and predict future events that could change the course of war. It sounds like something out of a science fiction movie but RV is absolutely real and due to security leaks during the top secret program, it has since been declassified and brought into public awareness. The one and only training and operations officer, Major Ed Dames, was the intelligence officer that brought the program out of secrecy and began training civilians in the late 1990s and revealed everything that the top secret program has uncovered... including foreseen events that would soon end the world as we know it.

Ug99 Fungus Threatens Wheat Crop July 24th, 2009
Link Impact Lab:
The Ug99 fungus, called stem rust, could wipe out more than 80% of the world’s wheat as it spreads from Africa, scientists fear. The race is on to breed resistant plants before it reaches the U.S.
The spores arrived from Kenya on dried, infected leaves ensconced in layers of envelopes.
Working inside a bio-secure greenhouse outfitted with motion detectors and surveillance cameras, government scientists at the Cereal Disease Laboratory in St. Paul, Minn., suspended the fungal spores in a light mineral oil and sprayed them onto thousands of healthy wheat plants. After two weeks, the stalks were covered with deadly reddish blisters characteristic of the scourge known as Ug99.Nearly all the plants were goners.
Crop scientists fear the Ug99 fungus could wipe out more than 80% of worldwide wheat crops as it spreads from eastern Africa. It has already jumped the Red Sea and traveled as far as Iran. Experts say it is poised to enter the breadbasket of northern India and Pakistan, and the wind will inevitably carry it to Russia, China and even North America — if it doesn’t hitch a ride with people first.
“It’s a time bomb,” said Jim Peterson, a professor of wheat breeding and genetics at Oregon State University in Corvallis. “It moves in the air, it can move in clothing on an airplane. We know it’s going to be here. It’s a matter of how long it’s going to take.”
