As a follow-up to Ted Balaker's earlier post on malaria and DDT, I saw that Tech Central Station ran a piece today by CEI's Angela Logomasini in which she argues for the emergency use of DDT to prevent the tsunami death toll from rising even higher as a result of malaria: And the Washington Times agrees: However, not everyone agrees, though I personally find this argument less than persuasive. I suspect that JunkScience.com's Steven Milloy wouldn't find it persuasive either.
