Apparently some do not know the differences between the Ebola strains.

Infectious, self replicating nanobots. Including a learning algorithm.

I'm siding with airborn Ebola vectors followed up by salting crop fields with nuclear waste and then finally nanobots to mop up the straggler renegades.

We need to nail this down folks. Bruce has to bone up on bio-chem processes and I have glassware to source.

The cheapest way of wiping out humanity is to just wait.

So, no to leaving animals alive then?

Marburg reston already was. Just dumb luck the reston strain only killed monkeys.

Weaponized anthrax is my choice.
Poor choice. Kills mammals generally.

Engineer an airborne virus that doesn't kill or even incapacitate it's host, but merely renders the host sterile. This would enable it to be easily spread (since every host survives long enough to infect many others) and would kill off humans in a generation. No proprty damage and properly engineered it would be unlikely to jump species and kill off any animals.

OMG! You're plagiarizing FX.

Actually, I only skimmed the replies before me and missed his. I think my variation would be more effective, since it would require no voluntary action on anyone's part and would likely do its damage before anyone noticed. If I was plagaraizing anyone, I was plagiarizing a theory I heard for the sterility in the movie Children of Men

I was going to plagiarize Frank Herbert's The White Plague and mention a fatal virus designed to affect only one gender but capable of being carried by both. But I realized that would have the same limitations as nearly any other fatall viral outbreak in being containable and, in fact, self containing if it kills the host quickly enough.

I'm starting to really like you.

That Herbert novel was fucking outrageous. They should make a movie based on it.

Just a team status update and pep talk.

We had some missteps getting that ebola vector airborne but everyone stuck with it and pushed through those roadblocks. Kudos especially to Bruce's group. Our West African test bed is yielding some excellent experimental data and as soon as we firm up the delivery methods [Anax, where is your team with this?], we'll be ready for world-wide deployment.

Oh, and I wanted to personally recognize Naryl's contribution: your idea of setting up street venders to sell tainted bleach to the stricken test communities as a means of partially funding this endeavor was ingenious. You can expect a little something extra in your next check.

One more thing: I don't want to end this talk on a down note but for those of you that are trying to expense the use of prostitutes and justifying it as vector analysis, I'm denying those line items. I'm not pointing anyone out specifically, Witness, but let's keep those expense reports legit.

Note from the field team.
if this report is true "Authorities suspect it was transmitted to humans in Guinea through contaminated bat meat" we need to rethink the vector introduction strategy (VIS). Seems to me that we need to get some euro trash chef to popularize bat meat on a tv show.

But, Boss, as per your memoranda 425.b rel. 3 and 709.c rel. 1, and our research team's Field Guide III (rev. 4), p. 451, note d, boosting spread efficiency was, and remains, a triple-star priority!
I must say I am disappointed, having worked hard without consideration for my personal safety, to see my ground-breaking field research tarnished by petty accounting quibbles. But such backstabbing, from people sitting safely at their office desks – I won't name anybody, suffice to look at this thread – can't really surprise me: they have lost contact with reality for quite some time now. Advocating batshitmeat, crazy!

Should be possible if said virus possesses inhibitor proteins on the coat which bind to the progesterone receptors (a viral contraceptive, in short.) It's more plausible than ''chemtrails.'' :P

In which case, Flounder shall be my first test subject.

(Yes, everyone would be sterile, but it should be fairly species-specific -- reproductive systems are quite varied among different animals, hence it should not pose a danger to other species or threaten the environment like a nuclear warhead would.)
