Those evil environmentalists

Did you know that one of the founders of the prominent organization Environmental Defense, Charles Wurster, said when it was pointed out to him that DDT saved lives of millions,

"so what? People are the cause of all the problems. We have too many of them. We need to get rid of some of them and this is as good a way as any."

and he also said when asked how killing people (from DDT replacement chemicals) could be less important that saving birds,

It doesn't really make a lot of difference because the organo phosphate acts locally and only kill (sic) farm workers and most of them are Mexicans and Negroes.

Astounding, but the LIBERAL MEDIA refuses to cover this scandal. Fortunately, however, right-wing bloggers like Tim Blair are on the case, repeating these quotes over and over and over.

However, it's not true. (Just in case anyone is convinced that the disgruntled former employee is telling the truth, the reporter who was supposed to have heard the statement has never been identified, and the alleged reporter never published the statement.)

I guess the self-correcting right-wing blogs will fix this though, pronto.
