Trail Mixers, it is time to mint a new mixer award: the “worst whatever of the week” award. Let it be known far and wide as the Midgely deMerit Medal. I hereby propose the first recipient rightfully should be the man for whom this medal is named:
Thomas Midgely was a renowned chemist and inventor who held over 100 patents in his lifetime, but he’s most notorious for two chemicals which wreaked untold havoc on the environment: leaded gasoline and Freon, the first CFC. During his lifetime, Midgley was met with great praise, but his legacy has become tarnished since the full effects of his inventions are now understood.
