Fighting evil with evil (The Flemish Beerdrinker)

Via Simonworld comes this message that Manila, the capital of the Filipines, is free from malaria. Cause: pollution is driving away Mosquitos. Of course for Manila it would even be better to be malaria-free without pollution clouds. But it’s a little bit like fighting global warming with nuclear energy i suppose. Second best, but nevertheless the way to follow if the first best solution is unavailable or too costly. Better to stick with a little bit of nuclear waste, than with all the evils of global warming. And maybe in Manila, it’s better to stick with clouds than with Mosquitos.
