Millions Die Worldwide for Nothing

As a follow-up to an earlier post, and thanks to a tip from C-Pol, here is an article about The Enviro's Flip-flop on DDT. Yes, now even the World Wildlife Fund and Greenpeace are saying that DDT should be used in countries with problems with malaria.

Tell that to the 10's of millions who have died from malaria since DDT was banned in the early 1970's (intenseley pushed by the Environmental Defense Fund).

This is appalling. When will we learn to check the facts before responding with politically correct legislation that has not been properly researched?

And far more importantly....when will DDT be used to kill mosquitoes in countries where millions have died from malaria?

I'm all for a more eco-friendly way to kill mosquitoes, but once again the environmentalists have shown that they value "nature" more than human life. Until there is a more eco-friendly alternative, DDT must be used to save lives!
