5. Sorry for the lack of sources..

but the first hypothetical mention of global warming was from around 1912.
First warning about the health effects of burning coal was from mid-1800's.
Rachael Carson warned about pesticides in the 1950's and the merchants of death are still trying to discredit her.
Also Leopold wrote of the loss of species, especially predators around the 1930's and although it has been shown that losses of livestock to wolves is minor, non-lethal controls are available and subsidized, we are still looking at unleashing cyanide bombs on beautiful, intelligent creatures because a few faux cowboys wet their chaps every time they see something that looks vaguely lupine.

Willfully ignorant fatuous right wing nut jobs have far too much sway in this country and I wish the media would stop portraying them like they are the couple in "American Gothic".

Curses on them all.
