Lefties Still Trying To Get Uganda To Stop DDT Use

Why would they do that? My guess is Uganda is tired of being saddled with the curse of malaria on their people and have decided to act. Since we now know the whole of the DDT scare was a hoax -- Rachael Carson had no facts, only pseudo-science which has no been proved wrong. Real scientific investigations have yield no harmful effects from use of DDT, Uganda sees no reason to cow down to the environmental Marxists. Why should they?
Report asks Uganda govt to shelve aside DDT use

Last year, the Uganda Government launched a programme to spray DDT and a pyrethroid called Lambda-Cyhalothrin to eradicate malaria, which is the leading cause of death in Uganda. But erratic spraying of DDT could make mosquitoes resistant to the insecticide and render the fight against malaria ineffective.

As a means to eradicate mosquitoes, the Government launched an indoor spraying of DDT in several malaria-prone districts in south-western and northern Uganda.

However, the High Court stopped the spraying, after farmers, traders and conservationists successfully filed a petition.

This, Dr. Nelson Musoba, the vice-chairperson of the panel which compiled the report, said was dangerous.
The environmental Marxist use the same tactic, get some dumb judge to issue an order, you have to wonder who pays the judge off. Shameful behavior of one human to another.

The blood of the millions of dead African children from malaria is on the hands of these nuts. Gaia would not be pleased.

UPDATE: By request, the lies of Rachael Carson ...

Some science readings : J. Gordon Edwards, professor of entomology at San Jose State University in California, has taught biology and entomology there for 43 years. He is a long-time member of the Sierra Club and the Audubon Society and is a fellow of the California Academy of Sciences has the list … Enjoy … the annotated list of Rachael Carson lies, or if you wish, the most egregious 'mistakes', is here.

1. It's not "lefties," but "righties" who oppose the spraying in Uganda. The part you quote even notes that: However, the High Court stopped the spraying, after farmers, traders and conservationists successfully filed a petition.

And, actually, no one can name any "conservationists" in the suit. The plaintiffs are all businessmen, right-wing money-grubbers.

2. Bet you can't cite any claim Rachel Carson made that has been "proved wrong." Give us her claim, tell us where in her book she made it, and cite the research that goes contrary.

Bet you can't. It's not so.
