What an upside down world we live in.
"West Nile Virus, which is spread by mosquito bites, has infected 23,974 people in the US and killed 962 of them since 1999"
That the virus is killing people is not news but dead birds are.
It is also worth pointing out, as I have done before, that the "environmentalists" ban on DDT has allowed the world's mosquito population to flourish & thereby killed 1.5 million people from malaria each year, proving the claim that the Greens have indeed killed more people than Hitler.
The DDT ban was introduced because there was some, slight & partly disproven, evidence that DDT might harm birds. Such is the complexity of ecology (a fact ignored by the "ecologically aware" community) it is clear that the DDT ban, by encouraging mosquitoes, assists the spread of west nile virus & thus, among other arguably greater effects, kills birds.
HERE IS A JUNKSCIENCE ARTICLE GOING INTO THE DDT CASE IN GREAT DETAIL
not news in scotland? it was big news in the states for quite a while. the media there seemed to bore of it once it had spread to all 48 of the contiguous states though.
