Overview

Did you know that pollutants and estrogen from contraceptives are causing male fish in America to develop female sex organs? Or that ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests? We hear about AIDS in Africa, but the number-one killer of children in Africa is malaria, and guess who banned the pesticide that used to have malaria under control?
