Long before “fake news” was a household word, playwright and political activist George Bernard Shaw warned: “Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.”
For decades, Monsanto has manufactured and disseminated “false knowledge” about its top-selling weedkiller.
And our taxpayer-funded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been right there by Monsanto’s side. Ignoring the truth. Protecting Monsanto’s profits.
We may not be able to keep the EPA from signing off on another 15 years of glyphosate.
Then again, if we keep the pressure on, in a very public way, the EPA may keep dragging its feet—and that could buy us enough time until we get through the 2020 elections and maybe, just maybe, end up with an administration that will put your health and safety ahead of Monsanto's profits.
It's worth a shot, don't you think?
