Dallas’ alarmist site dedicated to West Nile Virus aerial spraying
West Nile virus is scary. Equally scary is Dallas’ plan to eradicate mosquitos and hopefully, hopefully, West Nile.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings signed a declaration of emergency as the city continues to battle the spread of West Nile, clearing the way for aerial spraying.
Dallas officials will be asking the state to aerial spray the entire city just north of Interstate 30. The state will cover the $500,000 cost for the five planes and spraying.
It should be noted that the EPA and companies that make pyrethroid insecticides see no danger in spraying entire cities with chemicals. Refreshing.
Fellow citizens of Dallas, the city has decided to gas all of us over 10 deaths, 190 illnesses, 200 in total, out of a population of 4,665,555 0r .00043% of the population. Wonderful.
Well, at least the city will be upfront on how they plan to poison us all right? No.
Here’s the city’s site dedicated West Nile aerial spraying, on it you may one day find the spraying schedule. Right now it appears more concerned with scaring citizens with an alarmist banner:
and little concrete information concerning precautions citizens should take:
Perhaps we can work in some information on how long citizens should stay inside, how long it could remain on items exposed to it, it’s specific impact and more.
Or not. Nice work Dallas.
