Greens kill children

May 21, 2007

Green heroine Rachel Carson got DDT banned. Prior to that malaria was nearly wiped out. Now malaria kills more than 800,000 children under age five every year according to the CDC. Rich Karlgaard points out, “Every year, 800,000 small children die from malaria, a disease once nearly eradicated. Ponder that.”

HT to Mr. Reynolds who pens these telling words, “…ongoing political battles over DDT, which tend to pit green correctness against the lives of poor people in the Third World.”

Update: Reducing” the number of children just may be part of their master plan.
