  1. Sure, bring back DDT! The chemist who invented it was given a Nobel prize
    in medicine because everywhere it was used, it eradicated Malaria. Sri Lanka
    started using DDT and the crop yields increased by 50 percent and new cases
    of Malaria went from about 250,000 to about 16. As PJ O’Rourke put it, a
    reduction of that size in a tropical hell-hole like Sri Lanka was a bif deal.

    PS When they followed our lead and banned DDT, the rates of new cases
    shot up to pre DDT numbers in the course of a single year. We were on the
    verge of total eradication before tree-huggers using junk science succeeded
    in getting DDT banned.
