Steven Milloy has an item about the 30th anniversary of the criminal US ban on DDT, which has had such dire consequences for millions who will never be known to the do-gooders who preened themselves on this victory.

DDT use has virtually disappeared. Many countries blindly followed the U.S. ban or succumbed to activist pressure.

But there are other battles still to be fought in this war. Milloy reports that:

Activists recently succeeded in pushing a virtual world-wide ban in the form of a United Nations’ treaty signed by the Bush administration, but not yet ratified by the Senate.

Follow up by visiting Milloy's DDT FAQ page.
