This is how irresponsible environmentalists can kill and are still killing.
Millions of Africa children have died since the ban of DDT.
“Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring” launched the modern environmental movement by spinning tales about the intricacy and inter-connectedness of ecosystems in a way that laypersons could grasp. This might have been good if it hadn’t been linked with false dogmas that have proven utterly disastrous, such as the myth that human beings are destroying the planet with DDT.
The truth is that discriminating use of DDT kills mosquitoes and eradicates malaria wherever it’s adequately used. It does not destroy our environment; it saves lives. It’s time to let go of a phoney belief system lethal to millions of less-affluent humans elsewhere. Michael Arnold Glueck, M.D., and Robert J. Cihak, M.D. 2004″
