The New York Times - It's Time to Spray DDT

This is a very interesting OP-ED from the NY Times. Nicholas Kristoff writes about how it is time to re-evalaute DDT in the fight against Malaria. My personal politics tend toward the moderate liberal side of things, and I believe very strongly in a long term holistic planning with regard to environmental issues. Thus spraying DDT would very much have been on my list of bad things to do. This article may have changed my mind. Malaria is one of the words greatest threats; it kills two million people every year.
