Defang Agriculture

Evaggelos Vallianatos | August 27, 2014 | Green
My long experience with pesticides, agriculture, and the environment has convinced me we must defang agriculture. Ban most of its biocides. Keep some pesticides for emergencies. But these chemicals are not necessary to produce food. Organic farming is a proof of that.

Fanning the Flames With Fire Retardants

Ellen Moyer, Ph.D. | August 26, 2014 | Green
In a reckless, "hope-for-the-best" approach that puts us all at risk, U.S. policy allows the release of synthetic chemicals into the environment -- before their potentially devastating impacts have been adequately evaluated.
