Environmentalists more than an "unwelcome distraction" for tackling malaria

malariaThere has been a lot of chatter this week about how malaria cases have gone down in spite of rising temperatures.  Another doomsday scenario by Gore and the IPCC laid to rest.

According to an article in the BBC, research leader Dr. Peter Gething from Oxford University "described the climate link as an 'unwelcome distraction' from the main issue of tackling malaria."

We would have to disagree with Dr. Gething.  Environmentalism is not just an "unwelcome distraction" but an agitator when it comes to malaria.  Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" resulted in taking one of the most effective malaria killing chemicals, DDT, off the market. 

Because of Carson's alarmist predictions, millions in Africa, particularly children, have faced early deaths.  This serves as a lesson to what can happen when both sides of an issue are not presented to the public.  This is why Not Evil and the IWF have launched a Balanced Education for Everyone, and created educational resources that address malaria and DDT. 

When alarmist propaganda dominates the media and the classrooms, there is even more than a child's worldview at stake. As we've seen in Africa, sometimes it can be chilld's life.
