Opinion: Goodbye chlorpyrifos and good riddance

This is the story of Dow Chemical and DuPont and its decades old pesticide chlorpyrifos...although it could just as easily be applied to any Big Ag product manufacturer.  What's chlorpyrifos you ask

Opinion: EPA chooses chemical companies over children’s health

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in August 2018 already ruled chilorpyrifos unsafe and ordered EPA to revoke food tolerances and take the pesticide off the market.

But that ruling was vacated in February after EPA requested a rehearing which ultimately ordered EPA in a writ of  mandamus to issue within 90 days a full and fair decision on the petitioner's objections.

I fully expect the justices over at the Ninth Circuit will leave little tolerance for EPA's decision to continue to allow Corteva to market chlorpyrifos.
