Malaria worse than DDT (letter)


by Greg Byrne

News Weekly, July 16, 2005
Sir,

I don't think that News Weekly has done anything on DDT, but it has become controversial because of the fact that malaria has killed about 50 million people since DDT was banned on spurious environmental and health grounds in response to Rachel Carson's book in the 1960s, Silent Spring.

The Greens are the latest reincarnation of the far Left and the real enemies of the National Civic Council.

Gerry Jackson, in Brookes News, has been writing about these topics since about 1995 when the DDT issue first blew up. The Left has shown callous indifference to the deaths of millions of Third World people, whether they die by malaria or AIDS.

Greg Byrne,
Rowville, Vic.
