We had the great plague which one can directly attribute to the weather given that the extreme cold caused everybody throughout Europe to huddle inside of their dwellings, with their animals, for weeks on end. Not the most hygienic environment and Malaria was epidemic. The extreme weather causing late frosts and premature winters prevented the farmers from planting or harvesting their crops resulting in starvation with livestock and people simply freezing to death. When we talk about the Black Death or Bubonic plague it was only an aspect of the period and many other causes were attributable to the vast death rate in that time.
The fact that the 'Maunder Minimum' is not included in the calculations of the climatologists working for the IPCC or indeed any of the other historically based information regarding extreme changes in weather over the past few millennium, does give rise to a nagging suspicion as to why it has been omitted and the clear effect of sunspot frequency, although well documented, has also been omitted leading one to the conclusion that a conspiracy is taking place.
The dangers of DDT was the first of many cons and lies about a relatively benign substance, as far has humans and livestock were concerned, it just killed off Mosquito larvae. Since it's ban millions of people in Africa and other third world countries have died for the want of a few pennies worth of DDT. Good for the Eugenicists from the Rockefeller and Strong Camp, those nice people from the Club of Rome, and of course Malthus the man from the age of enlightenment, an economist and demographer whose idea it was to withdraw anything that could possibly save lives deemed by him to be economically nonviable.
I suggest you start preparing for the coming cold spell, get some DDT, insulate your homes, stock up on tinned food, extra fuel, warm clothes and blankets and, if you have the space, invest in a green house because you're going to need it.
