5.0 étoiles sur 5 SOS for reality, 26 janvier 2014
Not only an outstandingly important, in-depth expose of a 20-year scandal. I ask myself "where will we go from here? Will the farce be extended to AR6, AR7, AR8....until the next Ice Age?

More important still: will the mis-use of science continue to drive our society, steered by charlatans pushing their agenda?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 At last, the real story on DDT as told by two respected malariologists, 28 avril 2011
Ce commentaire fait référence à cette édition : The Excellent Powder: DDT's Political and Scientific History (Broché)
This is an excellent book, carefully researched by two specialists in the field.

The history of the demonization of DDT should be a lesson to society: if public policy decisions are based on science, then activists-'however well intentioned'-must take the back seat. The trend for policy to be set by persons posing as scientists and speaking in the language of science is a dangerous one.

In this and several other fields, environmental lobby groups have strayed far from the path of conservation, pollution control and other important objectives.

It is a credit to the World Health Organization that they have finally re-approved the use of DDT for public health purposes. In regions where malaria mosquitoes are still susceptible to the "powder" this has led to tremendous improvement in human health, with many lives saved.

I hope this book will be widely read, though I doubt it will succeed in dousing people's fears that DDT is dangerous to human health. The truth is that, used in tiny quantities applied to the indoor walls of houses, it has saved millions of lives without any of the horrendous impacts that are commonly assumed to be "proven" by scientists.
