Speaking of lead, consider our response to lead vs. Ebola

Isn't it interesting that huge majorities of us are willing to essentially imprison health workers without due process and based on no evidence but fear of Ebola, while we are happy to ignore mountains of solid evidence that letting people spray lead all over us and our food is a public health disaster?

And that is despite the fact that there is no need to allow sales of leaded aviation fuel to continue, any more than we had to continue child labor in factories. All that is required is that we stop letting ourselves be poisoned.

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."
