UN Prefers Death in Third World Countries

This should come as no surprise.

In 2006, after 25 years and 50 million preventable deaths, the World Health Organization reversed course and endorsed widespread use of the insecticide DDT to combat malaria. So much for that. Earlier this month, the U.N. agency quietly reverted to promoting less effective methods for attacking the disease. The result is a victory for politics over public health, and millions of the world’s poor will suffer as a result.

The U.N. now plans to advocate for drastic reductions in the use of DDT, which kills or repels the mosquitoes that spread malaria. The aim “is to achieve a 30% cut in the application of DDT worldwide by 2014 and its total phase-out by the early 2020s, if not sooner,” said WHO and the U.N. Environment Program in a statement on May 6

Rachel Carlson's bogus science is a close second to AlGore's, for the time being.

AlGore's bogus science hasn't killed quite as many people.

It's part of the plan. This isn't about mosquitos, it's about people. Specifically, it's about reducing the population. Everything the greenies are doing is designed to reduce the population. First, by eliminating those who have too many babies. The evidence points in that direction, certainly. Next, reduce the energy available, killing off more.
