A passionate and dedicated scientist says,
"I have a plan. By
manipulating genes, we can make invasive rodents extinct, on an
island where humans are living."
In the next fraction of a
second, a flurry of questions pops up and jumps up.
The overarching question is:
Does this mean
genetic manipulation can make ANY species extinct...?
Welcome to the world of
gene drive technology.
Here is a passage from
Gene Drive Files, a vital site with
an enormous amount of referenced information on the subject:
"Gene drives are a
gene-editing application that allows genetic engineers to drive
a single artificial trait through an entire population by
ensuring that all of an organism's offspring carry that trait.
For example, recent
experiments are fitting mice with 'daughterless' gene drives
that will cascade through mouse populations so that only male
pups are born, ensuring that the population becomes
extinct after a few generations."
"Proponents have framed gene drives as a breakthrough tool for
eradicating pests or invasive species.
However, the Gene
Drive Files reveal that these 'conservation' efforts are
primarily supported by military funds."
So it appears the answer
Gene drive technology
could be deployed to,
wipe out troublesome
plant-parasites, weeds, crops, animal pests, animals, and…
humans. Mull that over with your morning coffee.
Several years ago, the UN
was considering a recommendation to call a moratorium on the use of
Here is what the Gene
Drive Files reports about that tussle and the
Bill Gates on the scene:
under Freedom of Information requests reveal that the
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation paid a
private agriculture and biotechnology PR firm $1.6
million for activities on Gene Drives.
This included running
a covert 'advocacy coalition' which appears to have intended to
skew the only UN expert process addressing gene drives…"
"Following global calls in December 2016 from Southern countries
and over 170 organizations for a UN moratorium on gene drives,
emails to gene drive advocates received under a freedom of
Information request by Prickly Research reveal that a private
public affairs firm 'Emerging
Ag' received funds from the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation to co-ordinate the 'fight back against gene drive

the U.S. military:
"A trove of emails
(The Gene Drive Files) from leading U.S. gene drive researchers
reveals that the U.S. Military is taking the lead in driving
forward gene drive development."
"Emails obtained through a freedom of Information request by
U.S.-based Prickly Research reveal that the U.S. Defense
Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
has given approximately $100 million for gene drive research,
$35 million more than previously reported, making them likely
the largest single funder of gene drive research on the planet.
The emails also
reveal that DARPA either funds or co-ordinates with almost all
major players working on gene drive development as well as the
key holders of patents on
CRISPR gene editing technology."
"These funds go beyond the US:
DARPA is now also
directly funding gene drive researchers in Australia
(including monies given to an Australian government agency,
CSIRO) and researchers in the UK.
The files also reveal
an extremely high level of interest and activity by other
sections of the U.S. military and Intelligence community."
People will argue the
military involvement is "defensive" in nature.
The Pentagon must know
what our enemies are doing in their gene drive research labs, so we
can hopefully combat those efforts.
As we've seen in the past, such claims about US military research
on nuclear weapons and bio/chemical warfare were proven
research included the push to develop offensive capability...
Knowing how military
planner think (and not just in the US), I'm sure their researchers
are trying to figure out how to use gene drives to eliminate "just a
select part" of the human population. Meaning the 'enemy'...
Which leads to the next
As I've shown in past
articles, the latest and greatest gene editing tools (e.g.,
CRISPR), which are used for gene
drives, are far from slam-dunk precise, despite official assurances.
Nature Communications, May 31,
targeting events cause complex deletions and insertions at 17
sites in the mouse genome."
"deletions and insertions"...
And how about this study?
It was published in
Genome Biology on June 14,
2017, and is titled,
genome editing induces exon skipping by alternative splicing or
"a segment of a DNA
or RNA molecule containing information coding for a protein or
So you can see that
exon skipping or deletion is a very bad idea.
In other words,
ANY gene editing done
on ANY species opens the door wide to all sorts of errors and
Doomsday genetic warfare
and mutually assured destruction are the far shore of insanity...
but closer in, where the highly limited experiments are taking
place, there is no safety zone, either.
Insanity reigns there as

of time with the scientists there, and I have revised my
outlook, and I'm very excited about telling the world.

you want to tell the world."
