Well, again, you haven't answered my question. I guess there is no reason I deserve an answer, but the big issues remain. Do you favor DDT use, despite your difference with Prager over the so-called "myth"? Your 900,000 statistic could have been reduced by use of DDT, even as it lost effectiveness. By the Obama reasoning ("if even one life can be saved") you would have argued for its use. On the other hand, if you buy into the cost-benefit reasoning of Lomborg and other rational humans, perhaps you think that developing resistent strains of mosquitos would be too dangerous (like pennicilin losing its effectiveness against pneumonia), and you don't favor its use? Any comment?
