Really good news today–especially for the millions suffering from malaria. The World Health Organization finally broke with ideological environmentalist orthodoxy and acknowledged that the pesticide DDT is a vital third weapon in the war on malaria carrying mosquitoes.
I suspect a lot of credit for this breakthrough should go to Roger Bate and Richard Tren and others associated with the Africa Fighting Malaria campaign. Good job, folks! It's always a good day when science overcomes superstition and especially so when it will help save millions of lives.
Disclosure: I don't own stocks in any company that manufactures DDT, not that there's anything wrong with that.
