    I have a love-hate relationship with Rachel Carson... and that paradigm illustrates 'killed by the best of intentions', perfectly!

    She was, in my opinion and actual observation, 100% right on the effect of DDT on wildlife, especially bird populations.

    The same over educated/under thinking idiots that are harping on global warming also refuse to allow the most effective insecticide, ever. Never mind we've learned how to use it safely and effectively while not dosing every man woman and child with it.

    And by the way... the same applies to my views on Lead Mercury and Asbestos.

    The assumption that if 'lots of it is evil, then even some of it is still bad' illustrates the lack of common sense in what now might be -laughingly- called the 'Establishment'.
