Petition to the EPA on Pesticides

Pesticides are a big issue now. Here is another petition to consider signing before June 5th that came in my email today. It will post on my Home Page and on the category Earth Day Every Day. 

Sign on before the June 5 deadline!
 

We have just a few more days to speak up about EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s controversial decision to ignore his own agency’s scientists and greenlight the brain-harming insecticide chlorpyrifos.

The comment period on this terrible decision is open until June 5. Help us flood EPA with the message that keeping chlorpyrifos on the market is unacceptable.

Under Administrator Pruitt’s direction, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reversed course on plans to pull this widely used chemical off the market — putting the health of millions of children and farmworkers at risk.

In fact, more than 50 California farmworkers fell ill in early May when chlorpyrifos drifted from a nearby orchard into the field where they were harvesting. Action on this neurotoxic chemical is long, long overdue.

Add your name to the petition demanding that EPA follow the science on chlorpyrifos today — and spread the word!

Together with partners across the country, we’ll be submitting tens of thousands of signatures to Pruitt’s EPA, Congress and the media next Monday. We’re keeping the legal pressure on too.

Thank you for making a difference!
