A recent clip from the Joe Rogan Experience podcast is bringing attention to a controversial company seeking to “de-extinct” certain prehistoric animals in order to combat climate change.
Discovery+ and Animal Planet television personality Forrest Galante appeared in an episode released last Tuesday where he detailed the company’s goals.
“Colossal Biosciences is, if you ask me an incredible company, and they’re by their own declaration a ‘de-extinction’ company,” he told Rogan.
Colossal is using CRISPR gene-editing technology to insert extinct Woolly Mammoth DNA into the genome of an Asian elephant in a move expected to be launched next year.
The Tasmanian tiger may also be brought back from extinction, according to the company.
“It’s real-life Jurassic Park with a purpose,” Galante said, going on to explain the group is planning to release 100 woolly mammoths in a Siberian park to find out what happens when they “add megafauna back into the arctic tundra to offset carbon emissions.”
He continued, “What this company is basically doing is re-wilding species that humans have removed and that’s going to in theory fix the offset, the imbalance of the ecosystem.”
The narrative being pushed by Galante and the scientists behind Colossal Biosciences is that without these giant beasts roaming the Arctic, permafrost is melting and releasing loads of carbon into the atmosphere.
This ties into how the company would make its profit, which is by selling the carbon offset allegedly created by placing the animals back into nature.
In 2021, the company revealed it had raised €12.6 million from investors.
In fact, The Intercept published an article in September of 2022 detailing a CIA investment into the company.
The CIA’s nonprofit venture capital firm In-Q-Tel is actually a Colossal Biosciences stakeholder.
One Twitter user posted a screenshot of The Intercept article, where “Peter Thiel, Tony Robbins, Paris Hilton and Winklevoss Capital” are named as others invested in the biotech company.
The company’s co-founder, Harvard scientist George Church, gave a public apology in 2019 for being a recipient of Jeffrey Epstein’s funding.
Church recently revealed Colossal would like to see their animals “occupying every continent of the world, except for the two [mammoths didn’t inhabit] – Antarctica and Australia.”
According to EuroNews.Green, “There is also some concern that bringing extinct species back to life may have the potential to surface unknown pathogens. These viruses and bacteria may be able to infect humans or other animals.”
The experimental technology could also be a slippery slope regarding future projects as Church told Der Spiegel in 2013, “We can clone all kinds of mammals, so it’s very likely that we could clone a human. Why shouldn’t we be able to do so?”
Whether it’s gain-of-function research meant to make viruses more dangerous to humans or bringing back extinct species, it’s apparent the world’s current technological elite do not care about operating with cautiousness when it comes to limiting potential negative effects on humanity.
