Biodiversity? Scientists Want To Wipe Out Entire Species

• https://www.technocracy.news, BY: SOPHIE ARIE

When one lands on their neighbour they catch it, alive and intact, before it bites and then hand it over to researchers.

This is one small stage in a painstakingly slow process of research into the local mosquito population, led by scientists at Imperial College, London.

They hope that one day Burkina Faso will be the testbed for a technology that many hope will lead to the eradication of malaria, the mosquito-borne disease that is the biggest killer of children under five in Africa.

The researchers have developed a genetically-modified mosquito in their laboratory that can kill off its own species by spreading a faulty gene.

If it works in the wild, the technology – called gene drive – could help eliminate malaria where decades of efforts involving bed nets, repellents and insecticides have failed.

The research regarding malaria to cure and eliminate it is BS. Malaria has already been cured, sometimes in only 4 hours. Youtube search on "Jim Humble malaria." Here are a couple of links to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lzPpZ_9vl0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji06cm1VC_A. There are many more.
