Looking around various sites I see repeated references that the banning of DDT was a crime against humanity, causing 30+ million deaths.
Ignoring everything else, these commentators seem to think that DDT would be effective forever. Antibotics were also meant to last, but now there are plenty of resistant strains of bacteria now floating around. Wouldn’t this also happen to DDT as eventually insects would evolve resistance to it, and it would become useless like early antibiotics?
The first link I found on the topic was this. It echoes my thoughts too, saying that DDT had become less effective as time passed.
Counterproof? From a neutral source, not from either activist side.
