Rachel Carson Tribute Nixed

Kudos to Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), for putting the kibosh on a highly inappropriate tribute to envirokook Rachel Carson, whose diatribe Silent Spring resulted in the death by malaria of millions of people.

DDT, acknowledged even by the World Health Organization as the most beneficial substance ever devised, was the ultimate weapon against humanity's number one enemy after moonbattery, the mosquito. By killing off the mosquitoes that spread the disease, malaria was at last brought under control. In 1970, the National Academy of Sciences estimated that DDT had prevented 500 million deaths.

But then Carson wrote her book, which is now widely regarded as the inspiration for the cancer known as the modern environmental movement. She claimed DDT was bad for birds and even people. Bans followed, and to this day sanctimonious bureauweenies lean on Africa not to save its own people by using the precious chemical.

A moonbat's moonbat, Carson believed humans should submit to the wilderness:

The "control of nature" is a phrase conceived in arrogance born of the Neanderthal age of biology and philosophy, when it was supposed that nature exists for the convenience of man.

Her shrill claims that DDT was making robins go extinct were demonstrably false. As for DDT being harmful to humans, entomologist J. Gordon Edwards ridiculed the notion by eating a spoonful of it to introduce lectures on the subject.

Ironically, environmental extremists now claim that if we don't do their bidding, it will result in the spread of malaria. The link they attempt to draw between global warming and malaria is laughable. But the link between banning DDT and the rise in deaths by malaria is undeniable.

Rachel Carson, envirokook do-gooder responsible for the deaths of millions.

On a tip from Wiggins.
