GMO skeptics like myself have been warning for years of the unintended consequences of genetic pollution. Even when genetically engineered organisms are released into the world with the best of intentions, such actions can wreak havoc on the ecosystem and human civilization in ways that simply can’t be foreseen by the world’s most well-meaning scientists.
I specifically warned about this in 2012, listing the top 12 threats to humanity posed by out of control science. In that infographic, I designated “Level 4” hazards as “Self-replicating pollution,” naming genetically engineered organisms as the vector for such threats against humanity. (In the years since, many top science figures like Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have repeated the warnings from my list, including threats from AI.)
Now we may be seeing the first wave of the horrific destruction that can be unleashed by self-replicating genetically modified organisms. The Zika virus, now spreading with unbridled ferocity, appears to have been caused by the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes that scientists hoped would sharply reduce malaria infections.
“The Zika virus outbreak currently gripping the Americas could have been sparked by the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in 2012,” reports The Mirror. “The insects were engineered by biotechnology experts to combat the spread of dengue fever and other diseases and released into the general population of Brazil in 2012… The Aedes aegypti mosquito sub-species that carries both the Zika virus and dengue was the type targeted with genetically modified mosquitoes.”
But something went horribly wrong.
As pointed out in this fantastic article by AntiMedia.org, the genetic engineers running this massive open-air experiment with mosquitoes and humans failed to consider the impact of antibiotics in the environment caused by their heavy use in agricultural (animal feed) operations.
As AntiMedia reports:
Only the male modified Aedes mosquitoes are supposed to be released into the wild — as they will mate with their unaltered female counterparts. Once offspring are produced, the modified, scientific facet is supposed to ‘kick in’ and kill that larvae before it reaches breeding age — if tetracycline is not present during its development…
According to an unclassified document from the Trade and Agriculture Directorate Committee for Agriculture dated February 2015, Brazil is the third largest in “global antimicrobial consumption in food animal production” — meaning, Brazil is third in the world for its use of tetracycline in its food animals. As a study by the American Society of Agronomy, et. al., explained, “It is estimated that approximately 75% of antibiotics are not absorbed by animals and are excreted in waste.” One of the antibiotics (or antimicrobials) specifically named in that report for its environmental persistence is tetracycline.
The presence of antibiotics causes the mosquitoes that are supposed to die off to survive and reproduce. These same genetically engineered mosquitoes may then bite humans, injecting them with the Zika virus that’s now causing horrific mutations in head and brain formation in children.
A whole new epidemic caused by foolish genetic engineering that alters entire ecosystems
At least 4,000 babies in Brazil have been born with microcephaly over just the last four months, and the spread of Zika virus is rapidly exploding. Here’s just one photo showing the horrific deformations believed to be caused by Zika, carried by mosquitoes:
As more reports of deformed children keep appearing, the media is freaking out, the CDC is freaking out and the U.S. government is freaking out, demanding urgent calls for yet more vaccines. Alarmingly, the very same scientists who pushed for the release of the genetically engineered mosquitoes that may have caused all this are also now calling for more genetically engineered mosquitoes which they claim will solve this problem.
But the incompetence and corruption of government and science has never been more blatant: None of the testing with GMO mosquitoes took place in the presence of tetracycline or other antibiotics that are now ubiquitous in the environment due to heavy use of drugs in factory farm operations.
Mother Nature is not obedient to the hazardous science of foolish biotechnology
As with GMO crops, these GMO mosquitoes were released into the wilderness by arrogant, incompetent scientists who assume Mother Nature is going to behave the way they want. But Mother Nature doesn’t take orders for biotech corporations, it turns out, and life has a way of finding pathways to survival that scientists can never seem to fathom.
This is why GMOs are such an enormous threat to human civilization, and it’s why life-hating media outlets like Forbes.com and Wikipedia are so dangerous in their spewing of biotech industry propaganda (pushed by paid biotech industry shills like Henry Miller, Jon Entine, Keith Kloor and Kevin Folta). See the full list of so-called “Monsanto Mafia” members (including paid prostitute journalists like Amy Harmon and Tamar Haspel) atMonsantoMafia.com.
Here’s the kind of suffering humanity is now going to increasingly witness across our world as more genetically engineered organisms destroy ecosystems and cause humans to be infected with deadly viruses:
Those who warned about threats to the ecosystem were maliciously smeared and labeled “anti-science”
Myself and many others warned the world about all this, and in return we have been maliciously and repeatedly death-threated, slandered, defamed, blackballed and labeled “anti-science.” Yet now, the world is starting to see why we were the wise ones after all: We warned about this exact scenario, knowing that Mother Nature doesn’t follow the desires of for-profit corporations and their foolish experiments with the ecosystem.
The Zika virus may be just the beginning. GMOs and their related chemicals are right now devastating honeybee populations, destroying soil microbiology, polluting rivers and oceans, and contaminating the food supply with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide, a chemical that can cause cancer at parts-per-trillion concentrations.
Two years ago, the EPA quietly raised the limit of glyphosate allowable in food crops, selling out the public by doing the bidding of Monsanto and other biotech firms. The result is that eating cancer-causing poison is now considered “safe” by the EPA — the same incompetent, corrupt government regulator that knowingly allowed the children of Flint, Michigan, to drink lead water, month after month, without warning the public.
GMOs and the EPA / FDA / USDA… a whole new kind of war on humanity
We must now come to realize that the GMO industry and its captive government regulators (EPA, USDA, FDA) are actively engaged in a war on humanity. It is no coincidence that Bill Gates, a vocal advocate of active human depopulation, is also involved in the same kind of genetically engineered mosquitoes now linked to the Zika pandemic. When the globalists consider all the various ways in which they can murder six billion people and “save the planet” from overpopulation, mosquitoes and engineered viruses become the obvious vectors for achieving that aim.
See Group of scientists gave standing ovation for plan to kill 90 percent of human population with airborne Ebola for yet another example of how “scientists” are thrilled at the idea of using viruses and airborne delivery (via mosquitoes or otherwise) to commit mass genocide against humanity. This is the kind of thing they dream about unleashing in their war against a population problem that they think will end the world if they don’t drastically reduce the number of people living on our planet.
The Zika virus, in other words, might not even be an accident. If you give these scientists the most optimistic credit possible, you might say they intended for a positive outcome but didn’t realize the risks of what they were doing. But a more pessimistic analysis of their actions might reasonably conclude that they’re testing a bioweapon delivery system against humanity.
Only time will tell which interpretation is correct. Whatever the outcome, make no mistake that today’s biotech science is incredibly foolish, and the actions of these biotech corporations are putting the very future of humanity at extreme risk. Now, it seems, humanity is beginning to witness the true cost of arrogantly playing God with nature.
