Confucius is a bit of a crank on the topic of DDT and how its effective banning by green groups has led to something like a hundred million unnecessary deaths by malaria since 1972, 90% of whom were likely pregnant women or children under five. That’s about 7,200 deaths a day. Which is like fully loading up sixteen 747s of kids and crashing them into the ground every goddamn day. There are some lovely charities that try and get mosquito nets to malarial areas, but that’s nowhere near as effective is the application of tiny amounts of DDT to interior house walls once or twice a year.
Anyway, before Confucius goes berserk and writes 27,000 words on the topic, here’s a good video from the folks at Reason.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
