'Toxic garbage will be sold here': Outcry as Brazil moves to loosen pesticide laws | World news | The Guardian
“The economic interest will prevail over human and environmental health.”

Of 121 pesticides permitted in Brazil for coffee production, 30 are already banned in the European Union, including the toxic herbicide paraquat, Bombardi reported in an extensive 2017 study. [...] The country already lets foreign companies exploit its lower standards of protection, they said, “exporting hazardous pesticides prohibited from use in their domestic markets to be used in Brazil.”

Under Brazil’s current legislation, pesticides with elements considered teratogenic, carcinogenic, mutagenic, endocrine disruptive, or posing risks to the reproductive system can’t be registered, they said. But under the bill, hazardous pesticides will only be prohibited when there is a “scientifically established unacceptable risk” – a definition too vague to be effective.

A giant insect ecosystem is collapsing due to humans. It's a catastrophe | Environment | The Guardian
Today we know beyond doubt, and with scientific statistics rather than just anecdote, that this is true, and the question immediately arises: what caused it?

Advertisement

It seems indisputable: it is us. It is human activity – more specifically, three generations of industrialised farming with a vast tide of poisons pouring over the land year after year after year, since the end of the second world war. This is the true price of pesticide-based agriculture, which society has for so long blithely accepted.

Sewage plants are leaking millions of tiny plastic beads into Britain's seas | Environment | The Guardian
Sewage plants are contributing to plastic pollution in the oceans with millions of tiny beads spilling into the seas around the UK, according to a new report.

Dozens of UK wastewater treatment plants use tiny plastic pellets, known as Bio-Beads, to filter chemical and organic contaminants from sewage, according to a study from the Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition (CPPC).

The report found that many millions of these pellets, which are only about 3.5mm wide, have been spilled and ended up in the environment.

The author of the report, Claire Wallerstein, said once the Bio-Beads had been released they are hard to spot and almost impossible to remove – yet can cause significant harm to marine wildlife. // Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Assumed safety of widespread pesticide use is false, says top government scientist | Environment | The Guardian
“The effects of dosing whole landscapes with chemicals have been largely ignored by regulatory systems,” the scientists said. “This can and should be changed.” They contrast this situation with pharmaceuticals, for which there is a system of rigorous global monitoring after a drug is approved in case adverse effects emerge.

“Vigilance on the scale that is required for medicines does not exist to assess the effects of pesticides in the environment,” they said. They cite the UK as an example of one of the most developed regulatory systems: “Yet it has no systematic monitoring of pesticide residues in the environment. There is no consideration of safe pesticide limits at landscape scales.”

Glyphosat im Urin: Panikmache auf Verbraucherkosten - SPIEGEL ONLINE
75 Prozent der Deutschen sind deutlich mit Glyphosat belastet - zu diesem Ergebnis kommt eine Untersuchung, die die Heinrich Böll Stiftung auf einer Pressekonferenz in Berlin vorgestellt hat. "Die höchsten Belastungen ließen sich bei Kindern von null bis neun Jahren und Kindern und Jugendlichen von zehn bis neunzehn Jahren nachweisen." [...] Insgesamt entdeckten die Autoren bei gut 99 Prozent der Proben Glyphosatrückstände im Urin. Bei 75 Prozent der Probanden, den "deutlich mit Glyphosat" Belasteten, liege der Wert mit mindestens 0,5 Mikrogramm pro Liter Urin um ein Fünffaches höher als der Grenzwert fürs Trinkwasser, heißt es in einer Pressemitteilung. Ein Drittel der Untersuchten habe sogar die zehnfache bis 42-fache Menge des Grenzwerts im Urin.

Gesundheit ǀ Na, dann guten Appetit — der Freitag
Gesundheit Rund 100 Wissenschaftler warnen vor Krebsgefahr durch Glyphosat. Die EU-Kommission sollte sich auf das Vorsorgeprinzip berufen und das Herbizid erstmal verbieten [...] Und jetzt haben rund 100 renommierte Wissenschaftler die seitenlangen Beurteilungen auseinandergenommen und reihenweise Fehler aufgedeckt, vor allem bei der Auswertung der Tierversuche mit Mäusen und Ratten. Ihr Urteil deckt sich in vielen Punkten mit dem des deutschen Toxikologen Peter Clausing vom Pestizid-Aktions-Netzwerk PAN Germany, der seine vernichtende Kritik einer Studie der Europäischen Behörde für Lebensmittelsicherheit schon vor Wochen veröffentlicht hatte. Überraschend ist es also nicht, was die Wissenschaftler einwenden.

Marijuana legalization initiative fails in Ohio - Business Insider
Issue 3 would create a marijuana "monopoly" (actually, an oligopoly) consisting of 10 producers who would have their exclusive rights to engage in the commercial production of marijuana enshrined in the state constitution. The campaign in support of Issue 3 — so-called Responsible Ohio — is predictably supported by those who would hold these exclusive rights. This is crony capitalism at its worst. // same w GMO, Monsanto asked whitehouse (bush) to introduce stringent legislation and regulation about GMO research bc monanto knew it was ahead and didn't want any newcomers in, thus made through legislation, regulation and compliance cost, the barriers to entry artificially high, through its effective strong lobbying to introduce legislation & regulation to its liking.

Jobkiller TTIP: Neue US-Studie warnt vor dramatischen wirtschaftlichen Nachteilen des Freihandelsabkommens Für die EU-Kommission steht fest: Durch das Freihandelsabkommen TTIP mit den USA werden hunderttausende neue Arbeitsplätze geschaffen. Zu einer ganz anderen Einschätzung kommt jetzt eine neue Studie von US-Forschern der Tufts-Universität in Boston. Danach drohen durch TTIP massive Wachstumseinbußen, Jobverluste und niedrigere Einkommen. Die Forscher sprechen von "ernsten Konsequenzen für die EU und ihre Mitgliedstaaten". Für Deutschland errechnen die US-Forscher einen Verlust bei Exporten um 1,14 % gegenüber dem Szenario ohne TTIP. Das Arbeitseinkommen würde sich in Deutschland um 3.400 Euro pro Arbeiter verringern. Vor allem aber drohe ein massiver Jobverlust: 134.000 Arbeitsplätze würden demnach allein in Deutschland verloren gehen; 600.000 Arbeitsplätze in der gesamten EU.

Colony Collapse Disorder [...] in a first-of-its-kind study published today in the journal PLOS ONE, scientists at the University of Maryland and the US Department of Agriculture have identified a witch’s brew of pesticides and fungicides contaminating pollen that bees collect to feed their hives. The findings break new ground on why large numbers of bees are dying though they do not identify the specific cause of CCD, where an entire beehive dies at once. [...] The pollen was contaminated on average with nine different pesticides and fungicides though scientists discovered 21 agricultural chemicals in one sample. Scientists identified eight ag chemicals associated with increased risk of infection by the parasite. >> http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0070182

The Justice Department is investigating whether Monsanto, which has patents on the Roundup Ready system, is violating antitrust laws, unduly increasing prices or hindering innovation.
