Comment[edit]

The article is not clear on what SHOULD be its main point: Was DDT (or any other "POP") banned by this convention - or by a related treaty? --Uncle Ed 14:22, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

The edits made by 'Ltilbu' to the controversies section don't look very impartial at all. Someone familiar with the tone of Wikipedia articles should take a look at them. --69.196.72.50 (talk) 17:17, 28 June 2012 (UTC). An opinion piece, largely w/o citations, by someone very supportive of DDT for monetary or humanitarian reasons161.80.16.221 (talk) 12:59, 8 November 2012 (UTC). Does not seem to be useful here.

Signatory Countries[edit]

I think some descriptive text to support the map of signatory countries is needed, including why it was not ratified by some countries. Also, on the article about PCBs, it says that the U.S. is a signatory to the treaty, whereas the map says it is not. Ohnoezitasploded (talk) 20:00, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

The Dirty Dozen?[edit]

That would be very-very interesting! (<twirling the moustaches>hehehe</twirling the moustaches>) ... said: Rursus (bork²) 18:49, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

I think the article got it wrong, or presents it wrong. The Dirty Dozen are listed here. The names of the offenders are: PCBs, Dioxins, Furans, Aldrin, Dieldrin, DDT, Endrin, Chlordane, Hexa Chlorobenzene (HCB), Mirex, Toxaphene and Heptachlor. Those chemicals have no inhabitants, no responsible governments that can be blamed, and are completely unable to feel any shame for being hazardrous. ... said: Rursus (bork²) 18:56, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Just a thought[edit]

It's kinda interesting that once again the USA have not signed a convention like this. AIKÄRBÄST (talk) 22:45, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
