EPA rollbacks already touching Americans’ lives

Picking cabbage that morning, the workers noticed a tarry smell drifting from a nearby orchard. Mouths and lips tingled or went numb. Throats went dry. Soon some workers were vomiting and collapsing.

Officials in California’s farm-rich Kern County, where the workers fell ill, concluded that the harvesters were reacting to a pesticide, chlorpyrifos, misapplied at the neighboring orchard.

Five weeks before, in one of his first acts at EPA, Pruitt had reversed an Obama-era initiative to ban all food crop uses of the pesticide, which damages the brain and nervous system of fetuses and young children and has been prohibited as a household bug-killer since 2001.

This thug and his gang of cronies are an abomination, an assault on us all, the enemy of the people of America. It’s your air and water they are polluting, you brain damaged Trumptard imbeciles.

Suppressed Study: The EPA Underestimated Dangers of Widespread Chemicals

But the internal documents obtained by the Guardian show the FDA has had trouble finding any food that does not carry traces of the pesticide.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been testing food samples for residues of glyphosate, the active ingredient in hundreds of widely used herbicide products, for two years, but has not yet released any official results.

Obama’s EPA is ready to radically raise the amount of radiation in our water.

Comments

Beyond Nuclear:

Tell EPA: don’t repeat Flint! Protect our drinking water from radioactivity!
The EPA is proposing VERY high radiation levels for drinking water that can be used not only for emergency releases, but in any instance governments and regulators wish to ignore more protective standards. Added to food and other exposures, these levels will be even more dangerous to public health.

These levels can be thousands of times higher than current EPA standards. There is indication in documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that, in some cases, these allowed exposures could cause acute radiation effects, such as vomiting and fever. Clearly EPA doesn’t remember Flint, MI and how they utterly failed to protect public health, particularly health of pregnancies and children.

Further, EPA is basing its pregnancy and childhood exposure levels on nearly unobtainable reports from a scientific body that takes funding from the nuclear industry lobbying group, the NEI.
Time is short so A CALL is needed! PLEASE CALL Gina McCarthy at 202-564-4700.
Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA is ignoring their own drinking water and risk standards, which are more protective of public health, in favor of industry.
Tell her it is unacceptable that the EPA seems to be keeping from public scrutiny parts of the Protective Action Guide (PAG), such as all radionuclide levels allowed by the guide; and not providing complete documents on which the PAG is based.

Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA would base childhood exposure levels on a report from a group that takes money from industry lobbyists.

If you also wish to comment on these so-called Protective Action Guides, the DEADLINE for comments is July 25, 2016. Beyond Nuclear will be making detailed comments on EPA’s proposed levels.

The EPA has been occupied by hostile forces who seek to poison America for fun and profit. These are crimes and outrages.

Horses are being born without the ability to swallow — and fracking could be to blame

Link Between Fracking and Toxic Water

“This is a wake-up call,” said Dominic DiGiulio, lead author of the Stanford University study, published in Environmental Science and Technology. “It’s perfectly legal to inject stimulation fluids into underground drinking water resources. This may be causing widespread impacts on drinking water resources.”

 

I have several “F” words lined up. Beyond fracking, it’s fascism that sticks out the most.

Cancer on the Rise in Post-Fukushima Japan

In Fairewinds’ latest update of the ongoing nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima Daiichi, Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen presents two reports that confirm the direct link of numerous cancers in Japan to the triple meltdown. Based upon data from Japanese medical professionals and utility owner of the meltdown site, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), Arnie concludes that heavy radioactive discharges will be the cause of enormous spikes in cancer in Japan.

TEPCO’s press release confirms the leukemia diagnosis for a TEPCO worker due to his ongoing exposure during the last four years to radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi triple meltdown. Sadly, during the early months of the Fukushima Daiichi emergency, most TEPCO workers did not wear the required dosimeters required to measure each employee’s exposure to radiation, which has made accurate assessment of the radiation doses received by TEPCO employees impossible.

The second report, provided by esteemed Japanese medical professionals, reveals that the incidence of thyroid cancer is approximately 230 times higher than normal in the Fukushima Prefecture.  This disturbing number for the people of Japan is solely due to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster and the ongoing radioactivity emanating from the decimated nuclear site.

In this video, Arnie recounts his presentation from 2013 at the New York Academy of Medicine where he forecast continuous radiation releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and also the devastating health effects for the Japanese people, despite the chronically underestimated radiation exposure levels propagated by the International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Japanese government.
