The title kinda sounds like the plot of a bad Sci-Fi movie, doesn’t it? Oh NOOO! THE SUPERCHARGED FRANKENCORN IS TAKING OVER!! RUUUUN!!!
Sadly, though, it’s true and it’s called “gene drive”.
Scientists are now warning that “supercharged” GMOs may be “misused” to “accidentally or deliberately” cause environmental disasters or health emergencies.
Of course proponents of this new “gene drive” technology being rolled out in the GMO arena claim it is supposed to revolutionize everything and make the world a wonderful place where we can all skip merrily through a wheat field with a basket of Labrador retriever puppies wearing little bows around their necks like a Hallmark card calendar shoot.
But “gene drive” tech was built specifically to spread rapidly throughout the population wherever it is used … like a virus. This means if a mad scientist or, say, an evil global multi-billion-dollar megacorporation hell bent on destroying all natural crop species so it can takeover and force the entire world to be dependent on its patented GMO technology gets hold of this “gene drive” technology, it can, in effect, be turned into a bio-weapon.
Oh come on, scientists! They’d never do that … would they?
Just how scared do scientists have to get before they finally sound the alarm over GM organisms anyway? Obviously it didn’t happen 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 seem like laboratories are even more likely to screw up when they are screwing around with things they have no business messing with.
At least a few scientists still have a brain left that has been bought-and-paid-for by governments, lobbyists or big business.
