ebola exponential

npr had a story on how present models of the ebola outbreak are showing exponential expansion. so if there are 10000 cases now (estimates range up to 25000) there will be around 40000 by this time in november and 2.96 million by this time in may. if the closing window of opportunity is to be taken, it will soon need a mobilization on or above the scale of an invasion of europe. we may want to move it tomorrow instead of waiting for may. fortunately, as this will not require any advanced weapons systems, it will be cheap by comparison to iraq. I’m going to write some stuff now, while i still have time before civilization collapses
