This study reveals both the profound lack of knowledge of what introducing GE mosquitoes into the wild will do as well as the monumental hubris of those studying it.

New Approach to Identify Possible Ecological Effects of Releasing Genetically Engineered Insects

“‘Our project is trying to get it a little bit further into a standardization — a framework for how do you go about systematically evaluating a new technology so you’re looking at all the sorts of different interactions that could possibly happen,’ Morey says.”

Two red flags in that statement.  First they intend to “standardize” releasing laboratory concocted organisms into nature.  Second, they believe they can analyze “all the sorts of different interactions that could possibly happen.”  This arrogance is the type of thinking that is sinking the world’s ecosystems.  It’s what gives scientists a bad name.  All?  They claim superiority over nature — with a straight face.

Since it’s new, there’s no law against releasing these experiments into the environment.

Thousands Of Genetically Modified Insects Are Set For Release

“Regulatory decisions on GM insects in Europe and around the world are being biased by corporate interests as the UK biotech company Oxitec has infiltrated decision-making processes around the world. The company has close links to the multinational pesticide and seed company, Syngenta. Oxitec has already made large-scale open releases of GM mosquitoes in the Cayman Islands, Malaysia and Brazil and is developing GM agricultural pests, jointly with Syngenta. “
