It reminded me of this ridiculous program:
Stronach and Mercer were at the conference to promote a "Spread the Net" program for purchasing and distributing bed nets in Africa to help protect children from mosquitoes.
"More African children under the age of five die from malaria than any other cause," she said.
Mosquitoes spread malaria, which kills 3,000 children in Africa every day.
The program, which aims to get individuals to buy 500,000 bed nets for distribution in Liberia and Rwanda, is the brainchild of Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, a famed economist and author of The End of Poverty.
The bed nets cost $10 each.
Malaria is epidemic in Rwanda, Sachs told the conference, with "children dying in huge numbers because of the lack of something as simple as a long-lasting insecticide-treated bed net."
No mention of DDT, it costs pennies and because of one silly little eco-nuts book, with no scientific verification, was banned world wide. Millions of African children have died because of people like Al Gore and Belinda, not evil, just wrong. They are wrong again, but seeing as how Al Gore's bank account is increasing just like the hockey stick he used in his Hollywood movie, I don't see him stopping his gravy train. He gets between $250,000 and $300,000 every time he speaks and he does not allow media or questions. Typical lefty, grab the money with lies and no debate.
Could it be about profits???
For decades, BASF has been committed to the fight against malaria and other tropical diseases. The company's latest contribution is Interceptor®, a mosquito net coated with the insecticide Fendona®. The net remains effective against mosquitoes for several years.
Funny DDT is harmless and has been around for years, but "new" solutions need to be found? Hummm. Like banning freon in fridges and now banning regular light bulbs to replace them with ones filled with mercury. Not evil, just looking for profits.
This hysteria about banning, a particular ambition of lefties, reminded me of this oldie but goody:
The most depressing part of the whole documentary was the little kids, talking about drowning after watching the Gore movie. Someone, like their teachers, should tell them it's fiction not fact. I challenged my sons teachers when my sons came home and told me they had watched the Gore movie in class. I demanded they should also show "The Great Global Warming Swindle, or stop showing Gore's movie. They had no clue that any other side of the issue existed. Nice teaching of our kids.
I don't think these people are evil, but their agenda is for sure. It hurts the poorest in our world, and with the Copenhagen Agenda, it seems they have assured the third world countries that they will get money, lots and lots of money, but no real help in development. Not evil, just socialist.
