Somehow Glenn Beck's wacky proclamations never cease to amaze both in their inaccuracy and outrageousness. In case you missed this, here's a video of Beck taking potshots at Special Advisor on Green Jobs Van Jones (he's Beck's new favorite target) and praising DDT's effectiveness in saving 500 million lives. Beck appears to imply that environmentalists like Rachel Carson, author of "Silent Spring", have no concern or interest in all the human lives that were saved by DDT or the people who continue to die from malaria.

He also manages to mock "hippie" Joni Mitchell's song, "Big Yellow Taxi."

Ryan Witt has a full article debunking the claims Beck makes about DDT's safety, and even theorizes that maybe Beck is hoping for a Monsanto sponsorship since his advertisers are fleeing in droves.
