Green French scotch

Just when I thought environmentalist measures couldn’t get any more damaging, they go and mess with God’s gift to man; Scotch.

Green initiatives often have a mean, if unintended, underbelly.  From the millions of lives lost in Africa due to ridiculous DDT bans to food strikes and increased hunger among the world’s poor due to “alternative energy” subsidies, to fewer endangered animal habitats resulting from the “Endangered Species Act“, green policies have immense human and environmental costs that are not seen or foreseen during the furious hype-driven implementation phase.
