EPA: Ban This Toxic Pesticide
On February 24, 2017, President Trump gave Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris a small present: the pen he used to sign an executive order on regulatory “reform.”
On March 29, Trump’s EPA gave Dow a much bigger present.
They are refusing to ban Dow’s toxic pesticide chlorpyrifos. The pesticide attacks kids’ minds, giving them reduced IQ, memory loss and attention deficit disorders. It sickens workers, causing tremors and vomiting.
Earthjustice attorney Patti Goldman is in court fighting the decision.
