Another great TEDtalk held by Hadyn Parry. In a single year, there are 200-300 million cases of malaria and 50-100 million cases of dengue fever worldwide. So: Why haven't we found a way to effectively kill mosquitoes yet?



Hadyn Parry presents a fascinating solution: genetically engineering male mosquitoes to make them sterile, and releasing the insects into the wild, to cut down on disease-carrying species.

It's an interesting approach but I'm a strong believer we shouldn't mess up with nature and change its natural course.
