Given these statements and DDT’s P RO V E N E F F E C T IV E N ES S IN MA L A R IA


C O N T R O L , one might imagine that the United Nations would be working to
secure the rights of sovereign nations to use the most appropriate public–
health tools for their circumstances.

Regrettably, that is not the case.

DDT use is not governed by a rational debate about its merits amongst rela-
tively balanced, if opposing, interests, but by vested interests opposed to its
use.
Far from being an impartial arbiter and defender
of sound scientific evaluation in the debate over DDT,
the UN is merely a conduit for anti–DDT interests

LET ’S PAUSE …
AN D L OOK AT SOM E ALARM IN G ST AT IST IC S

It has been predicted that so–called GLOBAL WARMING


will affect the Arctic, as well as the African and Asian
countries, North America, and Europe.

Consequently, it is expected that dozens of millions of


refugees will be created, and that famine will affect 80
to 200 million people.

We should all be reminded that many experts view


GLOBAL WARMING as purely SPECULATIVE.

We are also advised to get a grasp on factual existing


problems that plague our entire planet.

As we speak, we have real problems, with poverty,


AIDS, polluted drinking water, and Malaria, which are
afflicting and killing many times more people than
global warming ever will.

Hunger is the most extreme form of poverty.

Presently, 854 million people across the world are hun-


gry.

Every day, almost 16,000 children DIE from hunger–


related causes ― almost 6 MILLION CHILDREN DIE
ANNUALLY due to hunger.

The latest statistics on the world epidemic of AIDS and


HIV indicate that 39½ million people are living with it.

AIDS deaths for 2006 were 2.9 million, despite recent


improvements to access to anti–retroviral treatment.

Equally serious is the fact that a world–wide shortage


of fresh drinking water affects forty per cent of the
planet’s population.

Each year, 11 MILLION PEOPLE DIE of diseases related


to water that is not clean enough for consumption.

Finally, some observers believe that Malaria acutely af-


flicts MORE THAN 515 MILLION PEOPLE PER YEAR.
515 MILLION PEOPLE is MORE PEOPLE than live in Canada, the United States, and Mexico,
combined.

Two–thirds of all Malaria cases occur in Africa.

Additionally, Malaria causes more than 1 MILLION DEATHS PER YEAR, principally among
children under the age of five years and pregnant women.

At least eighty–six per cent of these deaths are in Sub–Saharan Africa.

Globally, an estimated 3,000 women, children, and infants DIE from Malaria every day.

Twelve billion dollars per year is lost to Malaria.

In some countries, more people die of Malaria than HIV/AIDS ― and recently, a new study
showed that people who contract Malaria become more likely to spread HIV.

For over one–half century, DDT has been used as part of the solution to one of the world’s
great problems.

Through the policies of depraved indifference of Environmental Terror Organizations, DDT


has been prohibited in a manner that can only be described as « Eco–Manslaughter ».

E R AD IC AT IN G MALAR IA WITH DDT

Malaria has wrought an enormous economic toll, by incapacitating otherwise productive


people.

The burden of Malaria costs Sub–Saharan Africa an estimated twelve billion dollars per year.

Thousands survive the disease with brain damage, thus keeping millions at home to care for
them.

It is the principal reason why people in Africa are living in abject poverty.

Both North America and Europe have not harboured Malarial mosquitoes since the 1940s.

This was accomplished through the use of a range of public health measures, as well as
generally increasing health and living standards.

In fact, the beginning of the decline of Malaria was due principally to the drainage of
swampland and the removal of mill–ponds.
It had been known since 1914 that Malaria could be
controlled by fluctuating water levels.

Nonetheless, DDT contributed to the final eradication


of Malaria in the developed world.

In 1955, the World Health Organization ( WHO ) began


a program to eradicate Malaria throughout the ENTIRE
world.

The program RELIED GREATLY upon the application of


DDT to control mosquitoes, with a practice called DDT
Residual House Spraying.

As a result of this program, by 1967, Malaria was


eradicated from all developed countries where Malaria
was endemic.

Large areas of tropical Asia and Latin America were


freed from the risk of infection.

In Sub–Saharan Africa, the campaign was only


launched in three countries since it was not considered
feasible in the others.

Swaziland and Mozambique are examples of countries


that have very successfully REDUCED Malaria infestations with DDT.

Throughout the years, spectacular DECREASES in Malaria infections and deaths were seen
after implementing an extensive anti–mosquito program with DDT.

Here are five examples. ―

In 1970, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences summed up the situation with the following
excerpt from their book Life Sciences. ―

« To only a few chemicals does man owe as great a debt as to DDT. [ … ] In little more
than two decades, DDT has prevented 500 million human deaths, due to MALARIA, that
otherwise would be inevitable. »

The situation concerning Malaria eradication can be summarized with the three following
points ―

• DDT contributed to the final eradication of Malaria in the developed world

• Spectacular decreases in Malaria infections and deaths were seen after im-
plementing anti–mosquito program using DDT

• Our modern day world of politicized science refuses to admit that DDT has
prevented hundreds of millions of deaths with its life–saving eradication of
human diseases

For over one–half century, DDT has been used as part of the solution to one of the world’s
great problems.

Through the policies of depraved indifference of Environmental–Terror–Organizations, DDT


will be prohibited in a manner that can only be described as « Eco–Manslaughter ».

Additionally, these Enviro–Terror–Organizations prefer seeing money wasted on investigat-


ing myths like so–called GLOBAL WARMING rather that solving some REAL world problems,
such as with POVERTY, AIDS, POLLUTED DRINKING WATER, and MALARIA, which are afflict-
ing and killing many times more people than GLOBAL WARMING ever will.
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,
and organizations, depicted in this Report are not always fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, may
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.
