An interesting opposite to Norman Borlaug is mass murderer Rachel Carson.

She wrote the book "Silent Spring" which led directly to the banning of DDT, a very safe pesticide that had already saved millions of lives by preventing mosquito born diseases such as Yellow Fever and Malaria. The ban has resulted in a conservatively estimated 10 to 30 million deaths, almost entirely in the third world. Carson, of course, only wrote her book after the Western World had eradicated Malaria and Yellow Fever by attacking their mosquito carriers with DDT.

Of course you won't read this in the liberal sanitized Wikipedia entry about Rachel Carson. She is the twisted heroine of the modern "environmental" movement.
