Monsanto and the EPA … figures!


I thought this is worth sharing.  Monsanto effects us all. We need to be aware of what they are doing, and what they are getting away with courtesy of the Environmental Protection Agency.  I have to wonder, whose environment are they protecting, anyway?

 

2,4-D and the dioxin pollution it creates are too dangerous to allow, period, but in the hands of bad actors like Monsanto and Dow Chemical the dangers increase exponentially. What’s the Environmental Protection Agency doing? Helping cover-up the chemical companies’ crimes!

In February, Monsanto agreed to pay up to $93 million in a class-action lawsuit brought by the residents of Nitro, West Virginia, for dioxin exposure from accidents and pollution at an herbicide plant that operated in their town from 1929 to 2004.

That may seem like justice, but it is actually the result of Monsanto’s extraordinary efforts to hide the truth, evade criminal prosecution and avoid legal responsibility.

  1. I’m going to share this on Twitter. It’s amazing what Monsanto and the other biggies can get away with here. And it all flies under the radar… Just goes to show that it’s all about who can afford the biggest lobby in America. I blame Monsanto and others for colony collapse syndrome. It’s about time people got fired up about GMO food and pesticide/chemical release and disposal.

    As a side note, the community around Nitro is heavily into hiking and kayaking/white water rafting. I’ve driven through there myself on a rafting trip. It’s tragic to me that that beautiful wilderness is being polluted by chemicals.

    • I was really going to try to avoid anything of the political nature on my blog. However, sometimes, we can only bury our heads in the sand so far. Monsanto needs to be exposed, and the entire world needs to boycott them, if nothing else. Thank you for passing this along. The more eyes that see it, possibly, the more people that will wake up and realize that Monsanto is destroying OUR planet.
