George Moonbat: ‘Neonicotinoids are the new DDT killing the natural world’

Oh… Moonbat… DDT only ever hurt the disease-bearing lice and mosquitos…. Silent Spring is total… what’s the proper word for you… oh, yes… rubbish.

Moonbat writes at the Guardian:

It’s the new DDT: a class of poisons licensed for widespread use before they had been properly tested, which are now ripping the natural world apart. And it’s another demonstration of the old truth that those who do not learn from history are destined to repeat it.

It is only now, when neonicotinoids are already the world’s most widely deployed insecticides, that we are beginning to understand how extensive their impacts are. Just as the manufacturers did for DDT, the corporations which make these toxins claimed that they were harmless to species other than the pests they targeted. Just as they did for DDT, they have threatened people who have raised concerns, published misleading claims and done all they can to bamboozle the public. And, as if to ensure that the story sticks to the old script, some governments have collaborated in this effort. Among the most culpable is the government of the United Kingdom.

  1. If they are the new DDT, then they are harmless. Moonbat is truly schizophenic.

  2. A group called “someofus.org” is calling for Home Depot, Lowes, etc. to stop selling pesticides containing neonics. Sounds like the grassroots campaign has begun.
