I know all about the virus, I read about it 12 months ago and have been to a conferance that discussed the topic. It has not been tested in every possible situation, ans is not a guaranteed 100% kill rate.
Nature finds a way to survive, and any that do will more than likely become immune to the virus. I think a lot more research needs to be donr before they release it.
The point is, making comparisons to the introduction of rabbits or cane toads is a false equivalence. There was ZERO scientific investigation done with either of those things, whereas the CSIRO has been working on this for over 10 years.
