Say No to Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Release in the Florida Keys ACTION US

It's the FDA's job to protect Americans, not expose us to insects bred in science labs that could have unknown effects on our ecosystems and public health. I know that if enough people sign my petition, the FDA will prioritize the needs of kids like mine

Done. Some scientists do not understand that even they can, it does not mean that they should creat this. Stupid!

Alex Jones on GMO etc The Ultimate Secret About Food and water.

If you weren't interested or believing it before, the time is NOW to start taking an interest before it gets too late and we're all sterile and dying.

Sounds like the government is pretty determined to solve the claimed "Over population problem".

If one method doesn't work, maybe another will.

What they don't realize is if the people perish from the Earth so will they!

How long will it take us to learn, that introducing one species to obliterate another, especially a genetically modified one, often has unexpected, negative consequences.
Sometimes, we dive into a very shallow pool, thinking that the water is deep enough.

All they are doing is making things worse for us all. Take your GE mosquitoes and stick them where the sun don't shine, because, we DON'T want them!!!!!!!!

What purpose could you possibly have for genetically Modified Mosquitoes? All they do is spread disease.

Mosquitoes are bad enough --but a mutant variety that hasn't undergone adequate testing before they're scheduled to be released? No thank you! I wish we could give the geniuses creating these things mutant hemorrhoids. Gladly signed and noted!

For all their religious fanaticism, moneyed moronic company who would commit this crime is straight from hell. What are they thinking. Trouble is they are taking the rest of the world to hell in a handbasket.

Wow, there is almost more spammer comments than actual C2 members. What gives with all the spam as of late?

The Florida Everglades is a very unique environment and they want to tamper with it. They are already dealing with large snakes that people dump there when they become too big. Our Creator made everything perfect, it is the human that has already done enough tampering. We should be restoring things back to the way it was not adding mutant species onto this planet.

These Scientists act like spoiled children, just because they can do it doesn't mean it should be done.

Oxitec is planning to release genetically modified mosquitoes into the fragile enviroment of the Florida Keys. The company wants to use the Florida Keys as a testing ground for these mutant bugs.
Release your bugs on your Parliament. Enough of our blood has been sucked up by the bail-out.
