GMOs Present An Existential Threat - Episode 143

Jun 04, 2023


In today's episode, Jeffrey is asked, "What's the worst-case scenario for genetically engineering microbes?"  Jeffrey illustrates the worst-case scenario with 3 examples where things could have gone terribly wrong:

  • First, the example that is delved into in the film, "Don't Let the Gene out of the Bottle," which you can watch at . In this example is the story of Klebsiella Planticula which had the potential to decimate all terrestrial plant life as we know it.
  • Second, the example of the Avian Flu Virus which was turned into a airborne virus in a "secure lab".
  • Third, the example of a genetically engineered bacteria that could have altered weather patterns.
