Several anti-environmentalists have claimed that public concern over the effects of DDT after the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring led to a ban on the pesticide in some third world countries in the 1960s. This ban, it is claimed, led to a resurgence in malaria, resulting in thousands of deaths. But in accounts of the war on malaria, such as in Laurie Garrett's The Coming Plague, it is clear that the suspension of spraying programs was unrelated to any environmental concerns. In fact, DDT continued to be the insecticide of choice in the battle against malaria as recently as 1994, some 30 years after the alleged ban, in areas where it was still effective (Curtis).
...There were suspensions in the spraying programs, but they were not the result of any "environmental hysteria". To understand what actually happened, it is necessary to learn about the realities of pesticide use. One of the major problems with using pesticides is that insect populations soon develop resistance to the chemicals. Insects resistant to DDT began appearing one year after its first public health use (Garrett, page 50). As new insecticides were introduced, resistance to them also developed. Much of Silent Spring is a cataloging of reports of resistance to insecticides.

…. As early as 1967 it was clear that the effort had failed, and in 1972 the official policy shifted from eradication to control of malaria1967 it was clear that the effort had failed, and in 1972 the official policy shifted from eradication to control of mala.
"Some anti-environmentalists" - hmmm, so questioning the wisdom in banning DDT amounts to anti-environmentalism - typical leftist hyperbole, so the author's credibility is already in question

"led to a resurgence resulting in thousands of deaths" - thousands?, try millions - as reported by the World Health Organization approx 1 million die from malaria a year. Another whack at the author's credibility.

If DDT use was already being scaled back due to "insect resistance", why was the Environmental Defense Fund founded in 1967 with the express purpose of banning DDT. I already noted the complete bias shown by the EPA director Ruskleshaus who himself was a member of the EDF - can anyone say "conflict of interest" when he overturned the judge who actually HEARD the testimony of experts and ruled the evidence was not there to support a ban of DDT. This same Ruskleshaus who solicited donations for the EDF.

Interesting that the author failed to mention another HUGE reason that DDT use was curtailed - donor organizations refused to contribute money for malaria prevention if DDT was used. So countries that were dependent upon donations and grants to PAY for malaria preventive measures had no choice but to use other, less effective means since they couldn't pay for DDT themselves.(i.e. USAID, UN Development Programme, NORAD, and SIDA - per Malaria World Internationale)

Finally, if environmentalists really had so little to do with the banning/scaling back of DDT, why do they consistently tout it as either a huge environmental victory or an ongoing struggle?(EDF, Sierra Club, WWF, and so on)

I'm sure many folks will catch the disease known as libroiditis.......


Symptoms include foggy brains, dead brains, and leaking body fluids that eventually cause body death....

Back in the days of the "dark ages" it was known as the "effort to irradiate stupid", but failed due to idiots running around claiming they needed health care , which included bleeding, exorcism, and burning witches at the stake....something that might work today on Libroids.....

Wingnuts Expose Leftist Google Group Before It Can Conquer America

Pity the poor wingnuts. They worked so hard to bust ACORN into a million pieces and salt the earth so no part of it would ever grow back. Little did they know that the Progressive Menace was just using ACORN as a distraction while it rebuilt the most fearsome of all anti-American organizations dedicated to spreading leftist propaganda like the Ebola virus: JournoList, which has been reconstituted as a closed Google Group called Gamechanger Salon. And the conservative website Mediatrackers.org is ON IT.

...Congrats to Mediatrackers.org for this shocking discovery that reporters who cover the left wing of American politics might want to interact with activists of that wing in order to find out and report on what the left wing is actually doing. We look forward to the group’s next big scoopy scoop that the sun sets in the west.

S&P rationale for the downgrade
On August 5, 2011, representatives from S&P announced the company's decision to give its first-ever downgrade to U.S. sovereign debt, lowering the rating one notch to "AA+", with a negative outlook.

Governance and policy-making stability
S&P was direct in its criticism of the governance and policy-making process, which took the U.S. to the brink of default as part of the 2011 U.S. debt-ceiling crisis that same week:

"More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011. Since then, we have changed our view of the difficulties in bridging the gulf between the political parties over fiscal policy, which makes us pessimistic about the capacity of Congress and the Administration to be able to leverage their agreement this week into a broader fiscal consolidation plan that stabilizes the government's debt dynamics any time soon."

"The political brinksmanship of recent months highlights what we see as America's governance and policymaking becoming less stable, less effective, and less predictable than what we previously believed. The statutory debt ceiling and the threat of default have become political bargaining chips in the debate over fiscal policy. Despite this year's wide-ranging debate, in our view, the differences between political parties have proven to be extraordinarily difficult to bridge, and, as we see it, the resulting agreement fell well short of the comprehensive fiscal consolidation program that some proponents had envisaged until quite recently. Republicans and Democrats have only been able to agree to relatively modest savings on discretionary spending while delegating to the Select Committee decisions on more comprehensive measures. It appears that for now, new revenues have dropped down on the menu of policy options. In addition, the plan envisions only minor policy changes on Medicare and little change in other entitlements, the containment of which we and most other independent observers regard as key to long-term fiscal sustainability."

Uhmmm, one would presume that the protocols broke down, perhaps if one looked at the environment that the protocols were being implemented under one would better understand that well versed does not translate into well implemented day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute. Perhaps a rational person might consider that those on the scene may have been overwhelmed while working under less than ideal conditions, while trying to maintain well versed protocols.

Or a fear monger might not consider any of this.

Who ever could have seen this coming...

Every Republican must answer: Has Barack Obama really been waging a 'war on whites'?
by Ian Reifowitz
WED AUG 06, 2014 AT 06:30 PM PDT
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/08/04/1319...

Get ‘em on record. Every last one of them. That’s what we need to do. Every single Republican presidential hopeful, Congressional leader, hell, any Republican who is running for federal or statewide office this fall needs to answer the question of whether or not there is a “war on whites” being waged right now by President Barack Obama. From where could such a preposterous idea come, you might ask? Where else, but from a House Republican?

“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else...It's part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”

That's the truth according to Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, who uttered those words in an interview with right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham on Monday. This is not a local, county official. This is not one of a half-dozen candidates for a congressional seat. This is a sitting U.S. congressman. Last year Brooks voted for John Boehner to be speaker of the House. Right now, we deserve to know whether Boehner thinks the president started a war on whites back in 2008. But we don't want to hear just from Boehner. We must hear from all of them.

The time has come for each and every Republican to decide where he or she stands. They must come out into the open and either embrace the race-baiters, or throw them under the campaign bus. But understand this, when an Alabama conservative says that the black president and his party have been waging war against white people, he is channeling the spirit of George Wallace declaring "segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." He is calling forth hatred. He is all but summoning violence.

Rational people know that there has been no actual legislation either proposed, supported, or passed by this president that has targeted white Americans as a racial group. Furthermore, as I've written elsewhere, Barack Obama has, through his words, sought to strengthen the bonds that bring all Americans together across racial lines in a way no previous president has done.

Mo Brooks is a hateful demagogue of the lowest order. That we know. What we don't know is this: Are there any Republicans out there willing to stand up and reject his hate?

I'm so sorry the point "rename" was making just flies right by. If little Lefties want to get together and promote their irrational positions - more power to them. Go to Gamechanger Labs, you could spend hours going through all their links. But when so-called objective journalists (pardon me while I stop laughing) go to websites like these to "promote" their programs - yeah, it does make one wonder just how objective their reporting and interviewing will be. Have your viewpoint, fine - we all know you do anyway, but BE HONEST about it.

Thanks for the link, not that it will matter. If the facts don't fit the liberal mind set…"I see NOTHING."

"The numbers never lie. Currently, 352 bills that passed the House are awaiting action on Harry Reid’s desk. Of these bills:
- 98% passed with bipartisan support
- Nearly 70% passed with 2/3rds support or more
- Over 50% passed with no opposition at all
- And 55 were introduced by Democrats
And still, Harry Reid refuses to bring them up for a vote."
