I've seen several articles lately about new more aggressive species of mosquitoes. The Tiger mosquito is one. And it feeds all day long not just at dawn and dust like the local varieties. Warmer weather and milder winters exacerbates the mosquito problem. In 2010 we had ~ 712 cases of W. Nile virus, in 2012 we had over 7,000 because of the much milder winter.
Now here's what concerns me... the CDC was founded in 1946 to control malaria in the SE USA... southern GA, FL, and along the Gulf coast. Because of pesticides and the climate - they were able to eradicate malaria in the US. So was Yellow Fever in the early 1900s - the last epidemic was in New Orleans in 1905! With the climate warming and new varieties of mosquitos moving in, is another fall out of Global warming the resurgence of malaria, Yellow fever and several types of viral encephalitis (like WNV) in the US ?? If that happens it could be very costly !! (not just in lives)
Carlin openly communicated in his shows and in his interviews that his purpose for existence was entertainment, that he was "here for the show." He professed a hearty schadenfreude in watching the rich spectrum of humanity slowly self-destruct, in his estimation, of its own design, saying, "When you're born, you get a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you get a front-row seat."
"I look at it this way... For centuries now, man has done everything he can to destroy, defile, and interfere with nature: clear-cutting forests, strip-mining mountains, poisoning the atmosphere, over-fishing the oceans, polluting the rivers and lakes, destroying wetlands and aquifers... so when nature strikes back, and smacks him on the head and kicks him in the nuts, I enjoy that. I have absolutely no sympathy for human beings whatsoever. None. And no matter what kind of problem humans are facing, whether it's natural or man-made, I always hope it gets worse."

As I said; you'd think SPRAYING would be the Answer HOWEVER, the REAL "Ramification" is just that!
"THEY"'re "High-Spraying" this stuff all over the US Now, and you were never consulted, or alerted, about it in order to try taking any sort of precautions. You have no choice in the matter.
