Dow’s Done Deal

It’s official.

Thanks to the folks at Dow Agrosciences, and their buddies at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Dow now has permission to unleash up to 176 million more pounds (according to the USDA, though scientists predict much more) of 2,4-D into the environment.

Yesterday, the EPA removed the last hurdle in the race to rush Dow’s new Enlist-brand corn and soy crops to market, by approving Dow’s Enlist (Deadly) Duo herbicide (made from a highly toxic combination of 2,4-D, one of the toxic ingredients in Agent Orange, and Roundup, whose key active ingredient, glyphosate. The herbicide will be used, liberally, on Dow’s new GMO corn and soy crops.

And that will mean about another $1 billion in sales for the Gene Giant.

It’s enough to make you sick. Literally.

But it’s also reason to keep up the fight. The National Resources Defense Council immediately sued the EPA, and other groups have suggested they’ll do the same.
