Excellent link, gracias.

Nice to see that the Eliminate Dengue project is getting funds from the
Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.

One part of the article Carol linked to didn't make sense to me.
Sanofi Pasteur is hoping for positive trial results in Thailand, and even though the
results are not out yet they are investing 440 million dollars in a new factory
to produce the vaccine. I would guess the vaccine will be approved for use
no matter what the results are in Thailand. Over confident much? Or is the "fix"
already in?

"Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of Sanofi, is the largest company in
the world devoted entirely to human vaccines".〈=EN

Comparing the propaganda of the two methods (vaccine and Wolbachia-infected
mosquitoes) Sanofi Pasteur used more fear based information (like graphic photos
and videos of mosquito's sucking blood) and less (like zero) information about other
alternatives than the Eliminate Dengue project did.

Call me paranoid (actually I tend to be more Pronoia) but I can see the big money
wheels gaining the momentum to become too big to fail.
