DDT[edit]

The DDT section under the criticism part is rather odd. The section is mainly about bias from researchers rather than actually being about DDT, so the title should be more descriptive. Using DDT as the first title in a paragraph on criticism of environmentalism sparks, to me and probably many others, some weird initial reactions as general opinion is that DDT is one of the prime examples of undisputed environmental measures, and there are better examples to illustrate the actual point of the paragraph. Also, the actual convention that banned DDT has an exempt for using DDT in countries suffering heavily from malaria, so what the example is trying to illustrate falls short as well. Better completely remove the DDT reference.

Pointing out that 'agent X is very toxic for this, that, those and them, however is useful in doing Y' is a very weak point to illustrate the criticism, as it is rather obvious that some toxic pesticide is useful at combating some threat to human interests, or it wouldn't have been used anyway. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.165.221.153 (talk) 22:42, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Some recent vandalism is still uncorrected[edit]

This recent edit removed some text from this article for no apparent reason. I attempted to undo this edit, but it can't be directly undone because of "conflicting intermediate edits". Jarble (talk) 07:04, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Fixing a dead link[edit]

I investigated the dead link for footnote #3, which is used in a number of locations. I found what I believe to be the correct source for this citation. However, I am unfamiliar with Deep web citation protocols and this article's citations appear to be inconsistent so I did not feel comfortable editing the reference myself. Here is the information that I found.

The dead link is to this URL: http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/law/lwsch/journals/bcealr/28_2-3/07_TXT.htm

This leads to a "Not Found" page at Boston College. A search for "bcealr" on the BC website reveals that it stands for "Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review."

The second-to-last section of the URL appears to refer to a volume and issue number. Looking at the BCEALR home page at http://lawdigitalcommons.bc.edu/ealr/, you can see that their new protocol for linking to a specific volume/issue/article is to add /vol#/iss#/#/ at the end of the URL. Thus this article would be http://lawdigitalcommons.bc.edu/ealr/vol28/iss2/7/. Here's a full citation for that source, which seems pretty clearly to be the source being referred to by this article:

Stacy Silveira, The American Environmental Movement: Surviving Through Diversity, 28 B.C. Envtl. Aff. L. Rev. 497 (2001), http://lawdigitalcommons.bc.edu/ealr/vol28/iss2/7

Hopefully someone who's more familiar with Deep web citations than I am can fix the reference.
