Australia and New Zealand to be test sites for GM insect trials courtesy of DARPA

Perhaps this will not be such an easy sell in Australia because virtually all Australians know of the ongoing tragedy of the introduction of cane toads, introduced to Australia from Hawaii in 1935 by the Bureau of Sugar Experiment Stations as an amazing new technique to control the native grey-backed cane beetle. It didn’t work and now the toad is slowly invading much of Northern Australia with great destruction of native species.

The coming gene drive PR spin by Emerging Ag will claim benefits such as controlling mosquito diseases but other not mentioned “benefits” will be to try to develop a Monsanto pesticide resistant bee which will be used to pollinate crops sprayed with the chemicals without dying. After the GM bee has done its job, it’s programmed “termator gene’ will ensure all the GM bees die without leaving offspring, so each year farmers have to purchase a new batch of GM bees if they want to have pollinating dependent crop. Such a development would go a long way to assure global US military and corporate dominance over the world’s food resources.

The logic being why remove a profitable chemical which happens to be killing bees and other pollinating insects when you can change nature itself, at huge profit but with an unknown long-term cost for humanity.

One thought on “Australia and New Zealand to be test sites for GM insect trials courtesy of DARPA

  1. Monsanto pesticide resistant bee …

    After the bee has done it’s job a ‘terminator gene’ will kill off the bee …

    We believe ‘THEY’ can do this ?
    Really ?
    So, they have discovered the secret of creation.
    Somehow I doubt it.
    A fool & his money are soon parted.
    The fool & the nations money.
