gene drives

Right now, we have a way to eradicate the mosquito species that spreads malaria using CRISPR-based gene drives, a gene that makes the females infertile. The reason it hasn't been done yet is because of yuropoor lobbying groups that don't think humans should interfere with the natural order. Probably the same people who protest against nuclear power.

>b-b-but we already do too much to help thirdies!!
Eradicating malaria will LOWER africa's birthrate, and make them richer, and less likely to immigrate to your country or require foreign aid. It's a win-win.
Literally a million people die every year for no reason except "muh ecosystem!!"
We've genocided enough species at this point there's no going back for us. Malaria mosquitos might as well be next.

    Great and next lets do Tsetse flies and jigger flees and bedbugs for starters.

    Every single time we try to remove some natural check on population growth in Africa, their population explodes. Currently they are on track to be the most populous continent on Earth in 100 years. I'm all for fucking over mosquitoes, but Africa needs to unfuck itself first.

    can we do this but this the human population over there?

    At least three of the real world trials for mosquito infertility only ended up with a new population of normal mosquitoes drifting in not all that long after the infertile population died back.
    Making the mosquito gut inhospitable to malaria showed way more promise.

        I couldn’t find the other article and location I was referring to, but this article’s particular strain is for sterile males and has about 5% of the 1st batch of offspring survive to spread the gene. The company that made them, Oxitec, currently has a new type (still sterile male and dead female) with 50% offspring survival instead, so the genes should persist a little longer. I couldn’t find an article about the gene persistence of those in particular, but they were released in Brazil in 2019 and I think 2020 too as well as Florida in 2021 and 2022. There’s approval for California and Texas releases as well.

        If you just want a source for mosquito populations rebounding after releasing sterile males in general and all the models of trying to find the optimal male number, frequency, and sites to release to get the best suppression for the cheapest price, there’s about 80 years of research to sift through that all the modern methods are compared against.

          but this isn't the same gene drive tech mentioned in the OP right?

            Nope. Though, the gene drive infertile mosquito strains prior to about six years ago still ran into the same types of problems regarding potential usefulness.

            The only promising gene drive infertile female mosquito strains I know of that may actually persist in the wild (modifes doublesex gene and females are only sterile when both parents have the gene) still aren’t anywhere close to being ready for field trials yet. Maybe in another five years or so? The inheritance tends to be kinda fucky and may or may not lead to other problems. Granted, the last update I’ve read on those is this article from last year https://rdcu.be/cWwcF so, there’s probably an update out there somewhere.

    I think the greenie radicals get hung up on the idea of driving mosquitos extinct because they don’t understand that there are multiple species of mosquitoes and most don’t spread disease. When the “bad” mosquitoes get wiped out the “good” mosquitoes can fill their niche without constant pest control pressuring the ecosystem.

      You know what. Hitler solution to reduce human population boom is making more sense than your opinion

    This would make Sub-Saharan Africa far more livable for the white race as well.

    I don't understand why we don't do this with every invasive species, like burmese pythons or any of those tree killing insects.

    I'd rather this isnt done because malaria overall is quite a good thing for me personally

    Not true.
    Even Africans in the West are poorfags who require constant support to function.

      what's your point?
      if Africa becomes less of a disease ridden hellhole, the more Africans will want to stay in Africa instead of moving to your country where there isn't malaria

      Thats because the majority of migrants is young and poor people. Those people seek opportunities for growth, if they can find them home do you think they’ll abandon everything and put their life at stake like they do right now? Right

    The reason is hasn't been done is because there isn't enough research on it ameritard

      How much is that? What experiment do u have to do that hasn't been done already?

    I agree with you, but i am not -and i believe this applies to most people here- the ones you should be convincing i order to get this done
