Malaria worse than DDT (letter)
, July 16, 2005
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,
