After spending over $13 million last year for lobbying, #dowchemical thinks it will be just fine, even though science has proven even tiny amounts of its #pesticides cause #braindamage to #children.  #chlorpyrifos, #diazinon, and #malathion are pesticides that are huge #money-makers for Dow Chemical, with the company selling approximately 5 million pounds of chlorpyrifos in the U.S. each year, according to the Associated Press.  The company has run into a problem now, and it’s not the fact that the pesticide was “originally derived from a #nervegas developed by #nazi Germany,” though that’s certainly not great for marketing materials. the current problem is a group of studies by federal #scientists have found that chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion are harmful to almost 1,800 “critically threatened or endangered species.” Historically, groups like the #environmentalprotectionagency would want to avoid killing frogs, #fish, #birds, mammals, and plants, which is why the regulator and two others that it works with to enforce the Endangered Species Act are reportedly “close to issuing findings expected to result in new limits on how and where the highly #toxic pesticides can be used,” the AP reports.  Fortunately for Dow, the EPA is now run by climate-change denier and supporter of profits over life, #ScottPruitt, who last month said he would reverse “an Obama-era effort to bar the use of Dow’s chlorpyrifos pesticide on food after recent peer-reviewed studies found that even tiny levels of #exposure could hinder the #development of children’s brains.” And of course Dow Chemical C.E.O. #andrewliveris is friends with #presidentdonaldtrump. So, you can see how the company, which the AP reports also spent $13.6 million on #lobbying last year, might feel like it is in the clear.  According to the AP, lawyers representing Dow and two other companies that manufacture the pesticides in question (known as #organophosphates) have sent letters to
Because the makers of Agent Orange are *clearly* a reliable, honest voice of reason. (Hard eye roll) But they have deep pockets, so throwing $1 million at Trump should "help" their case. Gahhhh this crap burns me up! 😠🔥💀 {From the article: "Dow Chemical wants the Trump administration to “set aside” the findings of federal scientists that show a group of widely used pesticides are harmful to nearly 1,800 critically threatened or endangered species."} Not to mention the effects to the humans who eat that food - WE are going to be an endangered species, too, if we don't stop spraying toxic shit all over our food! Just last month, the Trump administration got the EPA to reverse Obama's ban on use of one of these pesticides (chlorpyrifos) which was found dangerous to children's development in even small doses. It's all about money, folks. #buyorganic #pesticides #corruption #environment #chlorpyrifos #diazinon #malathion #moneytalks #foodsafety #endangeredspecies
These pups have had a tough weekend, hacking up slime from their insecticide sprayed grass binge. Poisoning is real folks! Makes me all more concerned for the halted ban of #chlorpyrifos -this is a serious error by #scottpruitt and disregard for #epa research. We need to protect our wildlife, our produce, our pets, and ourselves! #earthjustice
How are Uk farmers supposed to compete with the rest of the world without subsidies if everything in this photo is illegal in Europe! #chlorpyrifos #gramoxone #roundupready #gmo #bantheban
#repost @leonardodicaprio with @repostapp ・・・ #regram #rg @americanbirdconservancy: Horned Lark is just one of the many birds affected by chlorpyrifos, a pesticide that was, until yesterday, on track to be banned by the EPA for use in agricultural fields. It was banned for home use years ago. "We're disgusted by Mr. Pruitt's decision to yield to corporate interests, given the dangers posed by chlorpyrifos to birds, children, and agricultural workers,” said Cynthia Palmer, Pesticide Program Director at American Bird Conservancy (ABC). Chlorpyrifos, one of the most-used pesticides in the United States, has been killing birds and poisoning the environment for the past half-century.  Because of those risks to wildlife and to human health, ABC has been calling for a ban on the use of chlorpyrifos for years. Environmental Protection Agency scientists agreed and were on course to ban the pesticide this month.  But then, EPA chief Scott Pruitt rejected the conclusion of the agency's own pesticide experts, who had recommended that EPA forbid use of the pesticide permanently at farms nationwide. Rebuffing a petition filed by environmental groups a decade ago, Mr. Pruitt took “final agency action,” which may not be revisited until 2022.  Studies show that women and children are particularly at risk from exposure to chlorpyrifos. ABC is also very concerned about the documented threat chlorpyrifos poses to birds, especially to endangered species. This past summer, EPA's draft biological evaluation on threatened and endangered species found that chlorpyrifos is “likely to adversely affect” 97 percent of all wildlife, including more than 100 listed bird species.  Speak out: Tell your elected representatives that chlorpyrifos must be banned!  #americanbirdconservancy #chlorpyrifos #pesticides #epa #pruitt #birds #hornedlark #insecticides
If you were #epa chief - would you ban #chlorpyrifos ?  After reading exposure during pregnancy can harm the fetus - how can a member of the #prolifeparty not ban it?!?!?! #scottpruitt  #whatanasshole #republicans #profitbeforepeople #hypocrites
When you vote #republican, please remember what you are #voting for..... #profits mean more than #children .......#prolife party my ass!!!! #whatkindoffuckeryisthis #epa #scottpruitt #chlorpyrifos
When you vote #republican you are voting for the rights of the rich and #corporations.  #pruitt #epa #epachief  Pruitt’s order allows #chlorpyrifos, an organophosphate #insecticide that’s been used on crops from broccoli to cranberries since the 1960s, to remain on the market for agricultural use. The #epa proposed in November 2015 under the #obama administration to permanently ban the chemical on food crops, citing potential risks to human health.  Chlorpyrifos, also known by its trade name Lorsban, is Produced by #dowchemical Co., it was largely banned in 2000 for at-home use in the U.S., but continues to be widely used on thousands of American farms.  #wtf thank a #republican #trumpvoter for poisoning you......
News on the #conventionalagriculture food front - Last week Trump's EPA administrator #scottpruitt reinstated #dowchemical's pesticide, banned in countries around the world, back into #americanagricluture  The pesticide in question, #chlorpyrifos, is a nasty piece of work. It's an organophosphate, a class of bug killers that work by "interrupting the electrochemical processes that nerves use to communicate with muscles and other nerves," as the Pesticide Encyclopedia puts it. Chlorpyrifos is also an endocrine disrupter, meaning it can cause "adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects," according to the National Institutes of Health. #callcongress #resist #farmingforsocialjustice

New Environmental Protection Agency Director Scott Pruitt signed an order denying the agency's own proposal to ban chlorpyrifos. This dangerous organophosphate insecticide known to be harmful to human health at levels found on food is used on alfalfa, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, tomatoes, and strawberries, among other crops. “By reversing the previous Administration’s steps to ban one of the most widely used pesticides in the world, we are returning to using sound science in decision-making – rather than predetermined results," said Pruitt. Obviously, Pruitt's "sound science" is alternative science from some alternative reality. Major studies from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, the UC-Davis, and Columbia University have found strong evidence that low doses of chlorpyrifos inhibits kids' brain development, including when exposure occurs in the womb, with effects ranging from lower IQ to higher rates of autism. Dow AgroSciences makes this insecticide. Looks like Dow's $1 million payment to Trump's inaugural committee bought it hundreds of millions in profits from continuing death and destruction. Disgusting.

They say u can't save and can't please everyone, But better save breathing innocent, be human be animal, to stuffing'em on.

"Scientists have spent years documenting that exposure to chlorpyrifos increases children’s chances of having long-term, developmental problems, including attention, memory and intelligence deficits, tremors, and autism. After carefully weighing that evidence — as well as critiques of it from Dow Chemical, which patented and still sells most of the pesticide — the EPA decided to move ahead with a ban on chlorpyrifos in 2015." https://interc.pt/2oEuUCz  #epa #chlorpyrifos #health #children #autismawareness #autism #dowchemical #awareness #environment #environmentalscience #onelove #onepeople #oneearth
The EPA says it's reversing course and keeping chlorpyrifos on the market. More on our news page @ regenerationvermont.org.
