The Heartland Institute is charitably called a “think tank” sometimes. In their latest screed against science and people who wish to protect the environment, there is no evidence of thinking, however. It’s all tank.
The headline says it all: “Bedbug Outbreak Hits All 50 States Thanks to DDT Ban.”
With all their reading on bedbugs, they never noticed the many notes that DDT stopped working against bedbugs more than 50 years ago? Who is going to tell them that DDT doesn’t work? Or, is this a talisman, an understanding that none of the solutions proposed by Heartland Institute will work? First they flirt with intelligent design, then they lose their senses altogether. There’s an omen there.
Remember the scene in “Spinal Tap?” Heartland Institute on bedbugs is stupid, turned up to 11. Heartland Institute doesn’t allow comments, probably because they can’t stand the laughter.
