The restrictions on the use of DDT has
resulted in millions of unnecessary deaths

T H E IM PACT OF T H E R EM OVAL OF DDT


― MIC H AEL CR IC HT ON

There is still a great deal of controversy regarding the decision to remove DDT
from the world market.

One popular debate can be summarizes as follows ―

The restrictions on the use of DDT has resulted in MILLIONS OF UNNECESSARY


DEATHS !

In 2004, popular author Michael Crichton summed up the


situation with the following excerpt from his book entitled
« State of Fear » ―

« Arguably, the greatest tragedy of the Twentieth Century


was the removal of DDT.

DDT was the best insecticide for the control of mosquitoes .

Despite views to the contrary, no other products were as


efficient, or as safe .

Since the removal of DDT, it has been estimated that THIRTY TO FIFTY MILLION
PEOPLE have DIED UNNECESSARILY from the effects of malaria .

Sadly, removing DDT has KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN HITLER .

Before the removal of DDT, malaria had become almost a minor illness, with only
fifty thousand deaths per year throughout the world . »
T H E ST OC KH OLM C ON VEN T ION

The STOCKHOLM CONVENTION on Persistent Organic Pollutants was the result of


enviro–maniac negotiations that began in Montreal in 1998 under the United Na-
tions Environment Programme.

The objective of the STOCKHOLM CONVENTION was to arbitrarily control, reduce,


or eliminate discharges, emissions, and losses of persistent organic pollutants to
the environment.

In 2004, the STOCKHOLM CONVENTION called for the elimination of DDT, as well
as other persistent organic pollutants, barring any health crisis.

Ninety–eight countries ratified the convention.

PAUL K. DRIESSEN

In 2003, Paul K. Driessen wrote the book « Eco–Imperialism ― Green Power,


Black Death ».

Driessen claimed that MALARIA DEATHS are TWO MILLION


PER YEAR.

Moreover, the hundreds of millions who « survive » the dis-


ease are too sick to work or take care of their families.

They become more vulnerable to subsequent diseases, such


as AIDS, dysentery, and tuberculosis.

The survivors are obviously not able to adequately contrib-


ute to the economy.

According to Driessen ―

« It’s no wonder that Sub–Saharan Africa is one of the most destitute regions on
Earth . »

It has been observed that the removal of DDT showed that the West has a lack of
compassion for those suffering in Third World countries.

Treatments were used long enough in the Southern United States and Southern
Europe to eliminate insect–borne diseases, but now that DDT is only needed in
poor countries, such as those found in Africa and Asia, it has been removed.
According to Driessen ―

« Now, well–off environmental activists can afford to rail against pesticide use in
Africa, while they enjoy all the comforts that our high–tech, malaria–free society
bestows upon them . »

PR ESSUR E TO GIVE UP DDT

Many African nations want to use DDT to SAVE LIVES, but they have been told
their agricultural exports may not be accepted if spraying becomes
« widespread ».

Some people assert that many countries have been under pressure from interna-
tional health and environmental agencies to give up DDT, or face losing aid grants
or trade sanctions.

Both Belize and Bolivia have gone on record to say that they gave in to such pres-
sure from the U.S. Agency for International Development ( USAID ).

Additionally, the European Union ( EU ) has threatened trade sanctions against


countries like Uganda that seek to use DDT, even solely for malaria control.

Fortunately, the 2004 STOCKHOLM CONVENTION inadvertently paved the way for
the world–wide endorsement of DDT to control and repel the malaria insect vector.

Happily, anti–DDT policies changed, thanks to President George w. Bush.

A T URNABOUT F OR DDT

DDT now plays a crucial part in the U.S. program, announced


by President George W. Bush in 2005, to spend an additional
1.2 billion dollars on malaria control over the next five years.

Later in 2005, the U.S. Agency for International Development


( USAID ) reversed its long–time opposition to the purchase
of DDT.

This represented a momentous turnabout in U.S. foreign pol-


icy.
The following is an excerpt from a speech that Bush presented on December 14 t h ,
2006 ―

« One area in which America has a tremendous potential to help is in the fight
against malaria. At home, malaria was eliminated decades ago. It is possible to
eliminate malaria. In Africa, malaria remains a persistent killer. I think our citi-
zens will be amazed to hear that last year, about a million Africans died of ma-
laria. The vast majority were children under five ― their lives ended by nothing
more than a mosquito bite. In some countries, more people die of malaria than
HIV/AIDS ― and last week, a new study showed that people who contract ma-
laria become more likely to spread HIV. [ … ] We’re spending 1.2 billion dollars
over five years to provide bed nets, and indoor spraying, and anti–malarial medi-
cine, in fifteen African countries. »

Moreover, in 2006, the European Union ( EU ) indicated that it would NO LONGER


IMPOSE TRADE SANCTIONS on those countries that use DDT for controlling a
HEALTH CRISIS.

Evidently, the malarial affliction of more than 515 million people per year, and
more than 1 million deaths per year due to malaria, qualified this situation as
« health crisis », as defined by the 2004 STOCKHOLM CONVENTION.

In essence, the 2004 STOCKHOLM CONVENTION paved the way for the world–wide
endorsement of DDT to control and repel the malaria insect vector.

WOR LD H EALTH ORG AN IZAT ION E ND OR SED DD T

On September 16 th , 2006, the World Health Organization ( WHO ) announced that


DDT could be used once again as a principal tool against malaria.

For 30 years, the WHO had phased out DDT from widespread « indoor residual
spraying ».

As of 2006, WHO endorsed DDT for « indoor residual spraying » in those areas
subject to epidemics, as well as in places with constant and high malaria trans-
mission, including throughout Africa.

Ironically, several environmental groups now grudgingly endorse the indoor use of
DDT for malaria control, including ― the Environmental Defense ( Fund ), the Si-
erra Club, and the Endangered Wildlife Trust.

After having killed more people than Hitler, maybe the environmental movement
finally grew a conscience ? Not completely !

The World Wildlife Fund and others still lobby against DDT.
Force Of Nature presents THE WHOLE TRUTH FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE from National Organi-
zation Responding Against Huje that seek to harm the Green Space Industry (NORAHG). It is a series of
Reports destined for the Green Space Industry, the Environmental Terror Movement, Governments, and the
Media, nationwide across Canada, the United States, and overseas. The information presented in Force Of
Nature has been developed for the education and entertainment of the reader by providing a sequence of
historical events WITH COMMENTARY. The neutrality of these Reports might be disputed.

Huje is a term used to describe Enviro Maniac Activists that routinely concoct FEAR MONGERING, FRAUDU-
LENT LIES, MISCONCEPTIONS, COERCION, THREATS, DECEPTIONS, TERROR, and PARANOID CONSPIRA-
CIES that are DESIGNED to SCAM and DECEIVE the public into believing there is some NON–EXISTENT
danger with conventional pest control products. Huje also SCAM and DECEIVE Government Officials into the
NEEDLESS, SENSELESS, and MALICIOUS CONSPIRACY to PROHIBIT conventional pest control products that
are FEDERALLY LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE, TOTALLY IRREPLACEABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSA-
BLE.

All information, excerpts, and pictures contained in this Report were found somewhere on the Internet, and
may be considered in the public domain, serving one of the following purposes ― archive, education, pro-
motion, publicity, or press release. The events, characters, companies, and organizations, depicted in this
Report are not always fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, may not be coincidental.
Force Of Nature is TOTALLY INDEPENDENT of any trade association or business operating within the Green
Space Industry. Don’t thank us. It’s a public service. And we are glad to do it.

Force Of Nature, and its various incarnations, is the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his entourage.
Mr. Gathercole is a principal FOUNDER of the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry in BOTH Ontario and
Quebec. He holds a degree in Horticulture from the UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH, and another pure and applied
science degree from McGILL UNIVERSITY. He has worked in virtually all aspects of the Green Space Indus-
try, including GOLF, PROFESSIONAL LAWN CARE, and CHEMICAL INDUSTRY, and has served in public af-
fairs, workplace safety, and environmental compliance. Mr. Gathercole has supervised, consulted, pro-
grammed, and/or overseen the successful and safe execution of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of pest control
applications in the urban landscape. He has trained, instructed, and consulted with THOUSANDS of turf
managers and technicians. Mr. Gathercole has also been an agricultural agronomist. For many years, Mr.
Gathercole was a contributing columnist for TURF & Recreation Magazine, Canada’s Turf and Grounds Main-
tenance Authority. Mr. Gathercole is now retired from Force Of Nature, although his name continues to ap-
pear as the FOUNDER. Mr. Gathercole is personally credited for crafting the Golf Industry Exception Status,
that endures to this day. He is also the creator of the signs that are now used for posting after application.
His vast knowledge of our long journey with Environmental Issues is UNDENIABLE ― hopefully ! For FIF-
TEEN YEARS, the strategies designed and implemented by Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues guaranteed the
control of Environmental Terror for the entire Modern Green Space Industry across Canada. Mr. Gather-
cole’s involvement in Environmental Issues reached a fevered pitch in the 1990s, when he orchestrated,
with his colleagues, legal action against the Forces of Environmental Evil in the Town of Hudson, Quebec.
Mr. Gathercole is the ONLY TRUE RELIABLE WITNESS of the Hudson Affair.

Mr. Gathercole and his entourage have followed the evolution of ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM for over a
quarter century. Through Force Of Nature, Enviro Maniac Activist Huje are identified on the basis of their
statements, activities, affiliations, and whereabouts. Even though each Enviro Maniac Culprit is a misguided
adversary, each still deserves our respect. The use of the terms Maniac, Culprit, Terrorist, or Basterd are
not accusations of any legal wrong doing. Force Of Nature is simply holding Enviro Maniac Activists ac-
countable for conspiring to change public policies that TERRORIZE, HARM, and THREATEN the Green Space
Industry. Their pretentious prohibitionist rants have created LOSS OF REVENUES, BUSINESS FAILURES,
BANKRUPTCY, and UNEMPLOYMENT, inflicting DESPAIR and DESTITUTION for THOUSANDS of hapless vic-
tims throughout the Green Space Industry. The DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE of Maniac Culprit Terrorist Bas-
terd Huje is viewed as a form of TERROR, HARM, and THREAT against the Green Space Industry.
