A shocking expose of the reckless proliferation of bioweapon research and development facilities across the U.S. - and the threat this poses to everyday Americans. Battling a new generation of corporate giants and uncovering threats right in our own backyard, Kenneth King’s Germs Gone Wild reveals the massive expansion of America’s biodefense research labs and the culture of deception surrounding hundreds of facilities that have opened since 9/11.
And yet the greed that drove the development of these labs has effectively counteracted any cautionary checks by the government and universities. All have been seduced by the economic gains and corporate stipends that come with compliance and turning a blind eye.
King examines the controversies surrounding plants from Maryland to Boston and Utah, to the Department of Homeland Security’s dubious National Bio-and-Agro-Facility (NBAF) project, and the precautions - or lack thereof - being taken to protect us all from a deadly pandemic.
A secret germ laboratory on Plum Island in New York...a shadowy biodefense facility with public funds in rural Kentucky...pork barrel politics by U.S. Representative Hal Rogers...mysterious personal tragedies befalling opponents of germ warfare...Germs Gone Wild: How the Unchecked Development of Domestic Bio-Defense Threatens America sounds like a Robert Ludlum novel. But its author, Kenneth King, insists its contents are fact and must be dealt with urgently.
Performed by the friendly, believable voice of southern actor, Brian Troxell, this audiobook is a heavily researched screed arguing that America’s development of biological weapons poses a far greater danger than any potential biological attack by America’s enemies.
