Did Terry Nation know where things were heading?

Remember Survivors 4th episode --Corn Dolly, where the community is poisoned by eating bad fish.
that was contaminated by ........??  Here's an article about possible radiation contamination of fish.

Re: Did Terry Nation know where things were heading?

In Survivors,  98% of the world's population was wiped out by a flu-like virus.
Are we heading there with drug-resistant TB. SARS. Antibiotic resistant organisms. Ebola.??

Preparing for the next epidemic
If it feels like we're hearing about new infectious disease outbreaks at an ever faster pace, there's a reason for that.

In "only three years, from '13 to '16, we've had chikungunya in the Caribbean, we've had Ebola in West Africa and now we have Zika in the Americas," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview with CNBC. "That's unusual. We've seen emerging infectious diseases forever; we have them now. We will always have them. But to have a cluster like that is a bit unusual."
Before that, just since 2002, the world has coped with SARS, H1N1 influenza — commonly known as swine flu — and MERS, among other outbreaks.

What may be of more concern, is the warming of the north pole - just below freezing I understand.

According to the new (incoming) US Govt , global warming is a hoax. However, the science . The facts. Polar bears losing their environment.  Sea levels rising. Snow in the summer. Warm weather in the winter.
The domino effect is something science fiction/ science fact is revealing. Add to that, man's action --bad air pollution  in China. Fracking causing earthquakes. (Oklahoma  has 84 quakes a month)

In Survivors 2008 ,episode 3 Greg Preston and Tim Price  meet a family on a farm. They were isolated and healthy. At one point , there are birds flying in the sky. Greg looks up and says-- it is spread by the birds.

According to the new (incoming) US Govt , global warming is a hoax. However, the science speaks.
   The facts ->  Polar bears losing their environment.  Sea levels rising. Snow in the summer. Warm weather in the winter.

Re: Did Terry Nation know where things were heading?

Antarctica is breaking up. I'm in New York, it's snowing --a lot. Flu season is here. Look at this http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/That-cold-you-have-might-actually-be-the-worst-10840517.php?ref=yfp     H3N2 flu in California. 
Another article http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/health/local-hospitals-hit-hard-by-flu-cases-8-deaths-so-far-in-king-county/?ref=yfp
Also bird flu in France, Germany, Demmark and China.
Terry Nation was trying to tell us something. How do people act in disasters -- we have seen it in hurricans, blizzards, blackouts, earthquakes.

Re: Did Terry Nation know where things were heading?

In the UK Lorraine, our NHS is overloaded ATM - I & my GF have both been ill with either a bad cold or flu - full of snot & lost voices - cough cough.
Thankfully we are getting better now.

Re: Did Terry Nation know where things were heading?

I remember at the outbreak of the Swine Flu, one of my colleagues came back from a holiday in Mexico, he felt ill, and what did he do? He returned to work of course. It was only after a number of people told him to see the doctor that he went, and was immediately quarantined. It turned out that it wasn't Swine Flu and he returned to work the next day. 
Problem is nowadays, with all of the people who use their sick leave dishonestly, the return-to-work interviews, and the Bradford Factor in place at so many workplaces, a Survivor's type plaque would spread far faster than it would have done in the twentieth century, when a lot more people were honest about illnesses, and managers were more likely to send people home!
