750 million genetically modified mosquitoes have been released in Florida ... to combat their disease-spreading cousins already there.

    plot twist: the genetically-engineered mosquitoes become intelligent and end up enslaving humans as a food source

    Here more info on GMO mosquitos. It is likely safer than spraying chemicals over neighborhoods. People just get freaked out about the word “GMO”.

    Like when a bystander turns into an agent Smith in the Matrix.

    I hope it doesn't create a worse breed of mosquito. Just hope it works.

    So is the goal to kill off the mosquito species? What then happens to our Florida Bat population? And so on and so on?

    Sounds like a great idea. And he reasons make sense. But messing with nature has never been successful

    We've meddled with nature before with disastrous consequences. Remember cane toads being released in Australia to eat the cane grubs? Yes,they ate everything else but. Did I mention they secrete venom? Lots of cats and dogs and indigenous fauna die from trying to eat these,they have no natural predators in Australia so proliferate unchecked. In South America where they originate there are animals that are immune to their venom and can eat them,hence they don't infest the habitat. Man,stop messing with nature, she's already got it right,learn from her.
