GMOs Haven’t Gone Away. Here’s What’s Coming to a Grocery Store (and Town) Near You by Aden Tate for The Organic Prepper
Did Will Smith’s I Am Legend teach us nothing? It seems as if we can get away from scientists who want to modify the genetic code of all the world around us, producing more and more GMOs. While we already have Bill Gates planning to darken the sun (not genetic modification, but a bizarre and potentially very dangerous modification all the same), we now have a series of other serious experiments being released upon the American public.
(A huge shoutout to Patrick Wood over at Technocracy.news for raising our awareness of these issues. If you haven’t already, make sure you check out his fantastic site.)
The Frankenstein mosquitoes (mosqui-GMOs?) were approved.
Do you remember those genetically modified mosquitoes that were in the news cycle a year or so ago?
Well, just this past week, the Environmental Protection Agency approved the release of these Frankenstein mosquitoes in both California and Florida. The hopes here are that these modified males will mate with female mosquitoes, with the end result being the transmission of a kill switch in the offspring that causes them to die before they mature.
What does this mean, though? Is that ‘kill switch’ transmissible via bite? Will these mosquitoes create new viruses? Will this result in some type of mutation being passed onto the female? Will a mass mosquito die-off cause a mass bird, frog, or lizard die-off? In turn, what would that mean for the rest of the insect population in these areas? Would the death of these insect-eating animals result in a plague of ticks, crop pests, or other havoc-producing insects that were otherwise in control?
Within California, these mosquitoes are set to be released in Tulare County.
Now, this is probably nothing, but it is interesting to look at this map from 2020 of California. Find Tulare County in the south. To be fair, Stanislaus, Fresno, and San Bernardino also have potential scheduled mosquito releases in the near future as well.
Hopefully, these GMO mosquitoes will respect the boundaries of the counties they are released in – stopping right at the edge -and won’t continue to spread throughout other regions of these states that are adamantly opposed to Frankenstein bugs being released in their areas.
This research is being funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and is allegedly being used to target the Aedes aegypti mosquito that first mysteriously appeared in California back in 2013. The state goal is to combat Zika virus, dengue fever, and yellow fever in both Florida and California. North America isn’t even on the list of where the CDC considers one to be at elevated risk of catching yellow fever. According to Florida.gov, it only occurs in parts of South America and Africa.
