Literally tens of millions of people have died needlessly as a direct result of the DDT ban.

On the issue of birds.....
One has to wonder why you suddenly began to see hawks, herons, and eagles again after the ban, and then a population explosion of all of the above soon after.
In terms of the effects on birds in the US, I don't think there was anything wrong with the DDT science.
With West Nile proliferating, DDT really needs to be revisited by UNbiased researchers.
And at a time when West Nile has become a concern - it's time to start using DDT again.
It's time that the junk science behind the banning of DDT be made public - and I don't mean simply on an internet web page - IT's time for new hearings and a re-evaluation.
What an amazing bunch the Left is. They accuse anyone not on their side of lies (even when the truth is being told) - but have no qualms about lying themselves...

DDT can be used safely for all the things it is irreplacable for.
Problems happen with any chemical if people spread it around indiscriminately.
The laws we now have controlling the use of all pesticides are adequate to keep things in check.
It was Rachel Carlson and her book "Silent Spring" that started the hysteria against DDT
We need to bring this stuff back and pronto....
DDT saves lives....the ban on DDT costs human lives...

As young children it was a curious site to see that billowing cloud of DDT coming out of the tank carried on the back of a truck. We would follow it all over the place.
It never hurt us.

2 things you need to know about DDT
1) it works
2) the science that precipitated it's ban was phony.
