The headline somewhat may seem like the storyline of a bad Sci-Fi movie, doesn’t it?
Unfortunately, nevertheless, it is true and it is described as “gene drive”.
Scientists are currently warning that “supercharged” GMOs may very well be “misused” to “accidentally or deliberately” trigger environmental disasters or health emergencies.
Not surprisingly advocates of this new “gene drive” technology being rolled out in the GMO industry assert it is designed to revolutionize everything and make the world a fantastic place where all of us can skip merrily through a wheat field with a basket of Labrador retriever puppies donning little bows around their necks like a Hallmark card calendar shoot.
However “gene drive” tech was built exclusively to spread quickly throughout the population wherever it is utilized … like a virus. This suggests if a mad scientist or, say, an nasty global multi-billion-dollar megacorporation hell bent on demolishing all natural crop species so it can takeover and pressure the entire world to be dependent on its patented GMO technology gets hold of this “gene drive” technology, it can, fundamentally, be converted into a bio-weapon.
Oh seriously, scientists! They would never do that … would they?
Just how frightened do scientists have to get before they ultimately sound the alarm over GM organisms anyway? Clearly it did not occur when Bill Gates threatened to invest more money into his plan to send swarms of genetically modified mosquitoes to end malaria. Did you hear them banding together to save us all when the Pentagon mailed live anthrax all over the world? It sure does look like laboratories are even more in all likelihood to mess up when they are screwing around with stuff they have no business fooling with.
