Friendly Reminder: The DDT-Holocaust Hoax promoters don’t actually care about malaria deaths

As previously discussed on this blog and elsewhere (e.g. Deltoid, Slate), there is a form of denialism based on the lie that hippies are responsible for millions of deaths due to malaria because they effected a ban on DDT. This is simply and unequivocally false.

But the people perpetuating the DDT-holocaust lie don’t care about facts. Moreover, they don’t actually care about people dying from malaria.

If they did, they would be up in arms about this.

The DDT-holocaust lie promoters like Fred Pearce and Roy Spencer have not and will not say a word about it. Because they are frauds.

  1. I didn’t know Roy Spencer was a DDT-kook, but apparently he is:

  2. Interesting comment at the end:

    “Editor’s note: This piece has been corrected since posting.”

    Did I just read the corrected or uncorrected version? It was still full of errors, both scientifically and logically. And people with influence (US politicians) actually believe this guy, no wonder we are in such dire straights.
