Just Don't!

Attorney Peter C. Wright is a lawyer who has spent his entire career helping Monsanto and Dow avoid cleaning up their toxic pollution.

According to the New York Times, Wright, who spent 19 years at Dow, one of the world’s largest chemical makers, once described himself in a court deposition as “the company’s dioxin lawyer.”

Now, Trump wants to put Wright in charge of—guess what?—forcing companies like Monsanto and Dow to clean up their toxic pollution.

Wright has a long history of being on the wrong side of the chemical safety debate. One of his favorite defense strategies is to argue that dioxin, a known carcinogen and Monsanto and Dow pollutant, isn’t really as bad as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) makes it out to be—even though scientists place dioxin (which often ends up in our food) “among the most toxic chemicals known to man.”

We have just two words: Fox. Henhouse.
