Thank God for the dogmatic environmentalists and organicos that got DDT banded.
They know you cannot undo the harm that it did and you will not find them
glorifying DDT. You can not bring back the wild life it killed nor the harm
it has done to mankind . You can not even get it out of breast milk. If it
took a environmental nut to get it banded I'm glad. One for us. One for the
environment .Can you get the herbicides out of our drinking supply and the
pesticides out of our Baby food. And I don't see any organicos trying to ban
pesticides. I see a lot of people volunteering to get off the pesticide
tread mill on their own. They see were it leads. It is not sustainable and
they are finding that out. They are using worse things than DDT and I hope
the people that got DDT banded have not quit the fight. I think we need
more environmentalists and organicos.
