Thomas Midgley Jr.: He played a major role in developing leaded gasoline (Tetraethyllead) and some of the first chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), better known in the United States by the brand name Freon; both products were later banned from common use due to concerns about their impact on human health and the environment.

We have plenty of living morons who will get away rich for the evil they have done. The Sackler family, anyone?Let's not get distracted by the morons of the past. There were fewer people alive then.

I didn't know there was a contest. There are so many names from which to chose.

Instead of ALL, I'll stick to 3 in my lifetime: Hitler, Donald Trump and Dick Cheney.

There's only a hair's difference between them.

I doubt that Mr. Midgley realized the damage his inventions was inflicting on the planet, though in his later life he may have. The others mentioned in this thread were psychopaths who actually ust didn't care how many they killed. I wouldn't put Mr. Midgley in that category.

The person who invented plastic. One of the best inventions but also one of the absolute worst inventions.

For america, definitly rupert murdoch.

He gave us climate change denial, which gives us unknown death, disease, suffering, and financial cost.

He gave us Dubya, who gave us afghanistan, iraq, which lead to syria and ISIS, a half million dead bodies in the mideast and 7 trillion in costs.

And he gave us trump, who made hatred and ignorance into admirable patriotic traits, brought us covid denial and a half million dead americans, plus destroyed the idea of common facts that people agree on, and is still attempting to start a civil war.

Bin laden was a sneeze compared to rupert murdoch.
