Macho Environmentalism

Thanks to American zoologist Louis Guillette, the world now has its best chance to realize changes environmentalists have been struggling for years to enact. Why? According to Guillette's work, overexposure to pesticides can be linked to decreased penis size in baby boys.

Sure, Prince William Sound was pretty and those spotted owls are a hoot, but Washington has never been a very hospitable place for tree huggers. Move past hugging and endanger something nearer and dearer to the hearts (amongst other places) of politicians and members of the power elite, however, and you'll have each and every one of them standing at attention (so to speak). Expect sweeping anti-pesticide legislation within the year and don't be surprised when a yard full of dandelions becomes a symbol of virility.
