Within the long list of Lefty ideology was and is "population control". Usually meaning poorer and browner people. For the sake of the environment you know. Come to think on it, Margaret Sanger probably should have a college named for her too for the same reasons. The Left will kill its way to dominance if they have to.

Margaret Sanger - she's a new one to me, and how proud she would be of the baby-killing factories now run by Planned Parenthood!

Carson also promulgated the notion of the balance of nature - that if we humans don't interfere everything will be just great, and also the precautionary principle - which is responsible for so many bad laws and stifled innovation. Quite a list.

Burn them at the stake? Would that not contribute to more global warming? It's thigh-slapping funny to me that these greenie/communists (watermelons?) are so sold on an idea, over population, subsidized by none other than that Baptist-capitalist, David Rockefeller.

DDT was not banned in most of the world and its use and effects aren't as simple as you'd like to believe:

Bob, I didn't suggest it was "simple", just that it killed 'mozzies' and 'mozzies' kill people!

"A worldwide ban on agricultural use was formalized under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, but its limited and still-controversial use in disease vector control continues,[10][11] because of its effectiveness in reducing malarial infections, balanced by environmental and other health concerns."
That sounds like most of the world to me Bob.

missred,

The worldwide ban is only for agricultural use, though most advanced countries have enacted a total ban:

"Despite the worldwide ban, agricultural use continued in India,[48] North Korea, and possibly elsewhere as of 2008.[21]

Today, about 3,000 to 4,000 tons of DDT are produced each year for disease vector control.[22] DDT is applied to the inside walls of homes to kill or repel mosquitoes."
