    A local company says it will have a vaccine in a few weeks. This is one reason the 21st century is better than the 19th that conservatives want us to go back to.

    You know, we had malaria on the ropes until Rachel Carson waded in with her “junk science Silent Spring” book. After we quit using DDT, the mosquito population took off and we have millions of people dying each year from mosquito-borne diseases. Thanks, Rachel!

    From the US Fish and Wildlife Bald Eagle Fact Sheet:
    “A North American species with a historic range from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico, the bald eagle is an Endangered Species Act success story.

    Forty years ago, our national symbol was in danger of extinction throughout most of its range. Habitat destruction and degradation, illegal shooting, and the contamination of its food source, largely as a consequence of DDT, decimated the eagle population. Habitat protection afforded by the Endangered Species Act, the federal government’s banning of DDT, and conservation actions taken by the American public have helped bald eagles make a remarkable recovery."

    You are repeating the lyrics to the old song against Rachel Carson. But, as always, the truth is much more complicated. The American Congress cheaped out on the mosquito eradication plan approved in a bipartisan effort in the late 1950s. Please read the following from THE COMING PLAGUE, by Laurie Garrett:
    .
    https://books.google.com/books?id=v9RY2PVOtOMC&pg=PA30&source=gbs_toc_r&cad=3#v=onepage&q&f=false
    .
    Choose Chapter 2, “Health Transition: The Age of Optimism, Setting Out to Eradicate Disease,” pp. 47 thru 50.
    .
    Garrett also has a sensible article out right now about the Zika virus.

    Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.
