Last quote by Kevin Esvelt

With the gene drive system, we could simply spread infertility. It spreads indefinitely. Our real enemies – the things we really do want to drive extinct – are viruses and parasites. We don't necessarily want the mosquitoes that carry it gone. So if we can suppress them down to levels where they can no longer transmit the virus and we can remove all of the other places where it's present, then we can eradicate the disease without permanently harming the mosquito.feedback

This screams to me that science does not have many barriers in place to prevent potentially dangerous tech from being published. If there are advances whose discovery would constitute a global catastrophic risk, the current research enterprise is highly likely to stumble across them. That's why scientists at least need to share what they are intending to do. I haven't put this to the citizens of Nantucket yet. No pressure, guys.feedback
