Oo, I like that one.
I’m with Sjlver. There’s a lot of hand waving past problems in the happy timeline: eg, how long does it take to train new regulators who are going to work weekends? How quickly do trained regulators working constant overtime burn out? What happens when the Chinese government denies that the genome released early is the right one?
(Also, the invocation of “war time” as a model assumes that wars are run any more efficiently or even urgently. They’re not.)
