Readers will be aware of the DDT scandal – the enviros who banned it used junk science and have killed millions of Africans. But now their action is literally biting them where it hurts.
The National Pest Control Association reports that exterminators who were getting one or two bedbug calls a year are now getting that many in a week — roughly 50 times the number of calls…
Experts say the resurgence in bedbugs can be attributed in part to the use of less powerful pesticides since DDT was banned in the 1960s.
The Wikipedia entry is polluted by enviro-apologists, who do not write as scientists – for example (my emphasis):
One preliminary study regarding the effect of DDT found that it is likely the detriment to human health approaches or exceeds the beneficial reductions in malarial case…
There’s a more reliable summary of the science here, and a link estimates that banning DDT has killed over 90 million people, 95% of whom were pregnant women and children.
If the number is even a fraction of this, it’s one of the great genocides of the 20th Century, putting these enviros in the same league as Pol Pot, Hitler, and Stalin.
I hope the bastards get bedbugs.
