No we shouldn’t, as we can’t predict the consequences of making such a major change to ecosystems all over the world. (And the planet’s in enough trouble with pollenators dying out.)

I won’t miss the guinea worm either, but that’s a parasite. Why not eradicate the malaria parasite rather than its insect carrier?

You know that’s a good question for my instructor when we cover that next semester
