It’s an unregulated, wild-west “gene rush” and it’s already happening. The replacement of nature with corrupted DNA is upon us.

Problems to be Addressed

Gene edited organisms released into the environment pose an existential threat to nature’s gene pool. Yet few individuals, NGOs, and regulators appreciate the magnitude of this issue.

The introduction of cheap and easy methods for gene editing and synthetic biology poses an unprecedented danger. If these GMOs are introduced to the ecosystem in large numbers, they will replace and contaminate the gene pool forever.

Unfortunately, very few people know about this profound threat. And because gene editing is already so cheap and accessible ($169 DIY kit on Amazon), the solution to truly lockdown releases and protect nature requires a comprehensive global approach.

The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) is, therefore, building a global movement to alert, recruit, and empower organizations and leaders around the world to address this emerging threat. We call it the Protect Nature Now campaign.

As our video The New Global Threat from GMOs illustrates, we reframe the danger of this emerging technology. Instead of focusing on isolated health or environmental problems, we widen the lens to expose the existential threat. Gene-edited organisms can permanently replace nature with a corrupted gene pool.

Instead of trying to stop the release of all gene edited GMOs at once, we will first focus on containing GMO microbes and current threats and opportunities: “synbio” products such as the impossible burger, salmon, and the release of 500,000,000 GM mosquitoes in Florida.

The whole world has become acutely aware of how a single virus can wreak havoc. It’s easy to convey how genetic engineering increases the risk of future pandemics. Other GMO microbes, such as bacteria, also carry serious dangers.
