    very informative/influential book written by Racheal Carson about the man-made destruction of the environment. Just as relevant today

    The tragedy here is that Rachel Carson did not live long enough to repudiate her work.

    Wow.......I really didn't think that you could get any more retarded, kookiepukie, but here you go......

    EVERYBODY - please take a good look at ol' kookiepukie's list of poll results and see if you can spot 'Environment' on that list.

    I suppose it takes a particular kind of blind stupidity to not see the eleventh item on that poll of the public's rankings of concerns. Only 51% in that poll listed the environment as an issue that is "very important" to their vote. One of the latest polls I've seen recently shows that figure rising to 55% as the disruptions to the normal climate patterns get more and more obvious to everybody but the politically blinded morons on the right. Of course the propaganda campaign that the oil billionaires and the fossil fuel industry corporations and countries have waged has been pretty effective at bamboozling many of the folks on the right (who are made to feel economically threatened) and it's been particularly good at duping the anti-science, anti-evolution, conspiracy theory addict, lunatic fringers, like the ones who haunt this forum. Ol' kookiepukie is a great example of just how extremely retarded these loons can get.

    "its not even on the fucking list" - hey thanks kookie, I'll be chuckling about this one for days......I love it that you can still top your previous records at being crazy stupid.....it can't be easy for you to exceed your outstanding previous performances in the art of extreme retardation....way to go, champ....oh, wait, that should have read 'chump'.....

    Racheal Carson is one of science's heroines of the XXth century.


    Thank god she discovered the connection between DDT and the decline in bird populations in time for us to stop using that stuff.

    I cannot imagine this world sans those insect eating birds.

    I suspect mankind would be now slowly starving to death if we'd continued using DDT.

    Ooooops..........fail by sk00ks!!! Typo's are gay.

    So I'll take the opportunity to correct the mistake:2up: Thanks for pointing it out here Thunder, and done with typical Thunder poise.


    So.......to correct the record that.................


    Still displays that nobody cares about the science............


    So lets take a closer look, shall we?



    Seems in 2010, very few concurred with Rolling Thunder and his pals about being all fucked up over global warming...................but in 2010, at least its on the list!!!!

    Fast forward to 2012, when asked the question.................they laughed their balls off!!!!



    [​IMG]






    Denier retards FTMFW s0n!!!!




    Which interestingly, begs the question................why are the environmental alarmist nuts sticking to plan A: throwing bigger and bigger BS Bombs at the public ?????




    Plan A is clearly gay. Only the 21%ers give a crap = politically irrelevant = fringe.:funnyface::funnyface::fu:
