University of Alabama's Law School chairman Andrew Morriss discusses his new book Silent Spring: The False Crises of Rachel Carson.
"It’s not polite to talk about brown and black people dying because rich white people in America feel better about themselves when the brown and black people don’t get to use DDT,"
Along with China's One Child Policy and other population control regimens imposed on poor people in India, Peru and elsewhere, the DDT ban and the resulting tens of millions of malaria deaths are the foremost crimes against humanity of the late 20th century. The numbers of dead from environmentalist atrocities-- forced population control and the DDT ban-- are at least 210 million. 160 million girls have been killed by selective abortion and female infanticide (almost all associated with population control schemes) and 50 million poor people have died unnecessarily from malaria because of the DDT ban.
Now the same environmentalists want you to think that the earth has a fever, and you need to cede control of the world economy and politics to them.
