Sign of the times

It's illustrative of the changing attitude to climate change that a Wall Street Journal comment piece is titled:

I liked, re malaria, "Changes in agriculture, living conditions and a drop in the price of quinine, a cure still used today, all helped eradicate it." That looks awfully like "malaria vanished from Britain and we don't really know why."

Good find! The article seems to gloss over the fact that malaria is on the increase because people aren't allowed to use DDT as much as they used to (if at all?).
