Stop Dow Chemical from Poisoning Our Families and the Planet With Pesticides
What does a cool $1 million buy you in the Trump administration these days? A green light to sell a brain damage-causing insecticide and endangered species-killing pesticides, apparently. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Who are the victims? Farm workers, children, and endangered species.
Andrew Liveris heads Trump's "American Business Council." He's also the president and CEO of Dow Chemical Company, which gave $1 million for Trump's inauguration.
In March, EPA chief Scott Pruitt said that the agency would not ban the Dow-manufactured insecticide chlorpyrifos, which has been linked to brain damage and is especially dangerous to children and farmworkers. Now, Dow wants the Trump administration to bury government studies on the risks of three highly toxic pesticides to endangered species.
Much has been made of Trump's anti-science rhetoric. Well, this is where the rubber hits the road. Dow has influence with Trump, and his administration is suppressing the clear results of scientific studies and going against the recommendations of scientists.
We must tell Dow: We're watching you, and we won't let you get away with it.
Make your voice heard. Sign the petition and tell Dow that we won't let their dangerous pesticides destroy our families or the planet.
