    Ugandan activist (and student) Steven Lyazi writes passionately that the West is both hypocritical and imperialistic in dictating policies to Africans that were good enough for Western nations half a century ago and could save millions of African lives — and generate up to $100 billion a year to the Afrcican economiy just from allowing the use of DDT to fight malaria. DDT use reduces death from malaria by 80% or more — and Lyazi himself is a two-time malaria survivor who notes that most Africans lack the money to pay for the costly, time-consuming treatment for this killer disease that the West eradicated 70 years ago using DDT.

  • New paper faults World Health Organization’s willful exaggeration

    A new briefing paper by Dr. Indur Goklany examines the World Health Organization’s recent report on climate change and finds that its estimates of future mortality from global warming are grossly exaggerated. “Because of its willful exaggerations,” says Goklany, “the WHO study risks scaring people into taking ill-considered costly actions to limit greenhouse gases rather than focusing on higher priority global health issues such as hunger, malaria, and diarrhoeal diseases, which can be addressed at a fraction of the cost.”
