It looks like someone simply broke

F ALSE ALLEGAT ION S C ONC ER N ING D DT

The Green Space Industry needs to remind the public that it does not routinely kill
birds during the course of its activities.

And neither did DDT.

Allegedly, DDT harmed bird reproduction by thinning their egg–shells.

This seemingly led to the decline of the Bald Eagle and the Peregrine Falcon.

No doubt, the placement of these birds on endangered lists was a strong factor
leading to the U.S. removal of DDT.

Read the next segments, and formulate your own conclusions about the EXAG-
GERATED EFFECTS of DDT on birds, and our world of JUNK SCIENCE.

T HE ALLEGED E FFECT OF DDT ON BIRDS

Beginning in the 1950s, DDT was used on a massive scale to control the insect
vectors of the Dutch Elm Disease, as well as the larvae of the Gypsy Moth and the
Spruce Budworm.

Wherever DDT was used, some consequences were observed ― this usually in-
volving a noticeable reduction in bird activity, or a change in their habits.

Some people commented that a reduction in bird activity after an application of


DDT could mean several things.

Using DDT would remove a food source from the birds.

This would lead to the birds flying elsewhere for food.

It would not necessarily mean that DDT was killing birds.


T HE D ISGR ACEFUL AND MISLEAD IN G WUR STER ART IC LE

In 1965, an article was repeated in each of the magazines Ecology and Science
regarding the alleged death of certain bird species following DDT applications for
Dutch Elm Disease in Hanover, New Hampshire.

The author was Charles Frederick Wurster Junior.

Wurster claimed that ―

« Severe mortality of both resident and migrant birds occurred in Hanover during
spring 1963, and the evidence IMPLICATES DDT as its cause . »

This was not necessarily an exhaustive study ― it was merely a visual compari-
son between Hanover and Norwich, Vermont.

Norwich itself was never sprayed with DDT.

A mere 151 dead birds were found in Hanover, 10 in Norwich, and the feeding
habits of some birds APPEARED changed.

Incredibly, the dead birds were not always analyzed for traces of DDT.

Obviously, DDT was held accountable !

WHO WAS CHARLES FR ED ER ICK WUR ST ER J UN IOR ?

The disgraceful and misleading article discussed in the preceding segment was co–
written by Enviro–Maniac Charles Frederick Wurster Junior.

Wurster eventually became a co–founder and « volunteer scientist » for the Envi-
ronmental Defense Fund ( EDF ) beginning in 1967.

EDF was the Environmental–Terror–Organization that instigated a major conspir-


acy campaign against DDT.

However, the intentions of this organization may not have been pure–at–heart.
U.S. Enviro–Maniac
Charles F. Wurster Junior
grinned like the Cheshire Cat

D AM N ING ST AT EM ENT F R OM WUR ST ER

On October 5 t h , 1969, Enviro–Maniac Charles Frederick Wurster Junior made the


following damning statement in the Seattle Times ―

« If the environmentalists win on DDT, they will achieve, and probably retain in
other environmental issues, A LEVEL OF AUTHORITY THEY HAVE NEVER HAD BE-
FORE. In a sense, then, much more is at stake than DDT . »

Clearly, some Environmental–Terror–Organizations used DDT as a means to IN-


CREASE THEIR POWER.

There may never have been a bird issue !


WHERE WER E THE D EAD BIRD S ?

In fact, there appear to be NO valid scientific reports of « birds falling out of the
sky and bird carcasses littering the countryside » following the application of DDT.

Did birds really fall out of the sky


during the « DDT years » ? No way !!!

Let’s not forget that during the « DDT years » ( 1941–1972 ), approximately
1,350,000,000 pounds of DDT was used domestically in the United States.

If the Environmental–Terror–Movement was correct about DDT and its effect on


birds, where were the thousands of dead bodies ?

We are not the only people that have noticed this !

So did Michael Crichton.


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

T H E WISD OM OF MICH AEL CR ICH T ON

Michael Crichton was the famous author who wrote books like State of Fear and
Jurassic Park. Crichton was also a scientist and researcher.

In 2003, Crichton made following remarks ―

« I can tell you that DDT [ … ] did not cause birds to die, and should never have
been banned . [ … ] Banning DDT is one of the most disgraceful episodes in the
Twentieth Century history of America . »

Moreover, the restrictions on the use of DDT resulted in MILLIONS OF UNNECES-


SARY DEATHS !

In 2004, 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.

T H E WISD OM OF 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
medicine, 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 in order 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 ― Environmental Defense Fund, Sierra Club,
and 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 Organization Respond-
ing 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 enter-
tainment of the reader by providing a sequence of historical events WITH COMMENTARY. The neutrality of these Reports
might be disputed. Don’t thank us. It’s a public service. And we are glad to do it.

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.

HUJE is a term used to describe Enviro Maniac Activists that routinely concoct FEAR MONGERING, FRAUDULENT LIES,
MISCONCEPTIONS, COERCION, THREATS, DECEPTIONS, TERROR, and PARANOID CONSPIRACIES that are DESIGNED to
SCAM and DECEIVE the public into believing there is some IMAGINARY 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 IRREPLACE-
ABLE, and ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE.

HUJE have created LOSS OF REVENUES, BUSINESS FAILURES, BANKRUPTCY, and UNEMPLOYMENT, inflicting DESPAIR
and DESTITUTION for THOUSANDS of hapless victims throughout the Green Space Industry. The DEPRAVED INDIFFER-
ENCE of Maniac Culprit Terrorist Basterd HUJE is viewed as a form of TERROR, HARM, and THREAT against the Green
Space Industry.

This Report provides NO guarantee regarding accuracy or completeness. In no event shall Force Of Nature be liable for
any incidental or consequential damages, lost profits, or any indirect damages. Force Of Nature is TOTALLY INDEPEND-
ENT of any trade association or business operating within the Green Space Industry. The events, characters, companies,

not be coincidental. All information, excerpts, and pictures contained in this Report were found somewhere on the Inter-
net, and may be considered in the public domain, serving one of the following purposes ― archive, education, promo-
tion, publicity, or press release.

Force Of Nature, and its various incarnations, is the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues. Mr. Gather-
cole is a principal FOUNDER of the Modern Professional Lawn Care Industry in BOTH Ontario and Quebec. He holds a de-
gree in Horticulture from the UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH, and another pure and applied science degree from McGILL UNI-
VERSITY. He has worked in virtually all aspects of the Green Space Industry, including GOLF, PROFESSIONAL LAWN
CARE, and CHEMICAL INDUSTRY, and has served in environmental compliance, government negotiations, public affairs,
and workplace safety. Mr. Gathercole has supervised, consulted, programmed, 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 agrono-
mist. For many years, Mr. Gathercole was a contributing columnist for TURF & Recreation Magazine, Canada’s Turf and
Grounds Maintenance Authority.

Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues have followed the evolution of ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM for over a quarter cen-
tury. For FIFTEEN YEARS, the strategies designed and implemented by Mr. Gathercole and his colleagues guaranteed the
control of the VERMIN OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERROR for the entire Modern Green Space Industry across Canada. Their
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.

Today, Mr. Gathercole is the ONLY TRUE RELIABLE WITNESS of the Hudson Affair. 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 ! Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as FOUNDER of Force Of Nature.
