I ask this because a million Africans die every year from malaria. And we certainly know how to wipe out malaria. A marvelous pesticide known as DDT kills the mosquito that is responsible for that disease. Yet this stupid book, and the environmental movement it spawned, is responsible for the demonization of DDT.
DDT is a wonder drug that wiped out malaria in most of the world. But the environmental movement hates science and hates pesticides. And so they got DDT banned, despite an amazing health record, and no evidence of any danger to anybody.
Meanwhile, malaria is still killing people, 90% of whom are in Africa. Since 1972, more than 50 million people have died of malaria. We could stop it, cheaply and easily. And yet we do nothing.
These people are shits.
If malaria was killing a million Americans a year, or a million Europeans a year, you know damn well we would spray DDT to get rid of it. But apparently African life is not worth it.
Here is the World Health Organization begging the left to start using DDT to save lives.
And they refuse.
