Money involved in banning DDT?

Reply Sat 5 Sep, 2009 09:49 pm



...It is quite possible that money has a role in the banning of DDT. The formula is so old that even in the 1940s, if was in the public domain - so no manufacturer had a patent on it. Other, newer insecticides were patented and corporate pressure may have had a role. Also, when Ruckelshaus was CEO of Weyerhauser, the environmental movement contributed greatly to their bottom line and he may have felt obligated to return the favor.

What is it with you and DDT. It's like a love affair or something.
