'Historic Settlement' Cheered as Harbinger of End to Toxic Pesticides' Harm

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

A conservation organization is celebrating what it calls a "historical settlement" that stands to put permanent restrictions on widely used pesticides and prevent federal agencies from doing industry bidding.

The settlement (pdf) reached Friday between the Center for Biological Diversity, the Interior Department, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) centers around the impacts of atrazine, simazine, propazine, and glyphosate on endangered species.

Six years more, why?

Historic maybe, but timely? Absolutely not! Collusion and corruption continue with only a "band-aid" approach by government Of, By, and For greed at any cost!

"USFWS will now have to finish the consultation process with EPA on these chemicals' impacts on endangered species by December 2022" - 2022?!
6 more freakin years?? I guess these 'consultations" are really time consuming.....BS! This kind of delay is typical for these MoFo's! I suggest we expose them & loved-ones until the "consultations" are completed - then see how long it takes!

As usual with these "deals" government takes its sweet-rotten time doing the job it should have done years/decades before and very predictably gives the chemical poison conglomerate ample time to sell-off its stocks (as well as produce more) to wring every last nickel from the death of the wild....as well as human deaths via diseases and conditions likely/probably caused by their damn deadly untested poisons! There are thousands of other killers on the market.......

So that the consultation process can conclude with, "due to the fact that all the species put at risk by these chemicals are now officially extinct, we've concluded there's no longer any good reason to remove them from use."
