They are playing and experimenting with the system that we are 100% integrated too, affected by and dependent on, Nature.

What laws gave them the right to do this?


These scientist must be put on trial.

It's not the scientists. I don't mind doing closed experiments along these lines.

It's the politicians who approve the release who are the problem. The problem is that politicians believe their own bullshit, and actually think they are smart and wise, and capable of making the best decision in every circumstance.

Fucking retards.

They alter mosquitoes so they can't bite are you idiots are scared about it?

The best part is you morons quoting BS science fiction films like Jurassic Park as is it added some validity to your argument rather than making you look like ignorant dumbasses.

Here is a clue for you idiots:

Mutations happen ALL the time naturally. Hell, this non-biting gene was probably found in nature and they just spread it around some more.

If you were really so afraid of a single gene being changed then you would have to be terrified of every single lifeform - we are ALL mutants.

Uncertainties

The scientists involved say the strictest safeguards are in place. However, there is uncertainty about the lasting effects GM insects would have on ecosystems, public health and food safety once released. For instance:

1. Spread of Transgenic Traits: The success of some GM insects is contingent on the ability of fertile GM insects to replace wild insect populations and become established in the environment. Release of fertile GM insects increases the potential that transgenic traits could spread throughout the insect population, potentially making pre-existing pest problems worse or creating hitherto unforeseen and altogether new challenges.

2. Unintended Consequences: It is also possible that GM insects released to control the spread of disease could actually have the unintended consequence of enabling an insect to more effectively spread disease or even carry a human disease it was never before able to transmit.

3. Food Safety: There is the possibility that modifying the genetic composition of food-making insects such as honeybees could alter the composition of the honey they produce, potentially creating a food safety concern at one level and a human health hazard at another.

All of these uncertainties need to be carefully addressed by regulators both domestically and worldwide prior to the introduction and release of GM insects into the wild.

Hopefully it doesn't turn out worse than the mosquito eater experiment. A couple years ago, Florida scientist released a bug that was designed to eat Mosquitos, but the only thing these bugs did was have sex and reproduce for 2 months out of the year.w You can search the bugs by their name, lovebug. The worst part about these bugs is that there are millions of them. Your car will be covered in dead bugs and they eat away at the paint. When will these scientist learn not to mess with Mother Nature?

Re: BREAKING!! What could possibly go wrong? Genetically modified mosquitoes to be released in Florida
I didn't read the article yet but what happens when the cities go around spraying to combat the mosquitoe population? Won't that be counterproductive or do these GM mosquitoes not die when sprayed?

Man, can we fuck around with nature anymore ya think? We need an asteroid to stop this out-of-control tampering of the planet.
And THIS....is only what they're sharing with us. Can you imagine what's being kept from us?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29150242


My personal opinion is that this is a cover story - in reality, they are probably releasingd mosquitoes into the florida keys in order to SPREAD dengue fever. Remember, they want to kill most of us off - we are, after all, just a bunch of useless eaters, according to them.

Even if they really were trying to stop the spread of this fever, why aren't they releasing these mosquitoes into the areas that actually have this problem? Why the US? And, even if they are ostensibly doing what they say they are doing, what are the consequences, as others have said, of tampering with a species that impacts other species, since we are all interconnected?

I cannot think of a single time that introducing something in to the environment that was not there before worked. Let alone something genetically modified.

Going to be another huge mistake.

Brilliant idea...just like planting the Brazilian pepper plants to drain the swamps...now they are freaking everywhere choking native plants to death and are known as "Florida holly"...

Welp...the good thing is that when the mosquitoes mutate into the flying monkeys from the Wizard of OZ they will probably eat the freakin Burmese Pythons that are now taking over the everglades.

Really I'm surprised that we don't have Piranha fish in every canal and armies of fucking Chimps carrying 6 foot tall venus fly trap weapons reeking havoc and attacking us every single day or some other crazy crap down here.

BUT, HOW does the 'modification affect OTHER physiological features of the insects makeup ?

WILL it, say, now be able to carry the AIDS virus ( hasn't it always ? ) and pass it on to others through it's sting/blood drawing activities ?

Wrote letter to New York Times editor of science section asking the above question about aids and mosquitoes. Replied that mosquitoes can't carry virus.

WROTE BACK, ASKING IF THEY CARRY THE SLEEPING SICKNESS VIRUS IN AFRIC, why not the AIDS virus ? NO ANSWER !
