Saving Life on Earth: Discussion on Protecting People & Wildlife from Poisonous Pesticides
HOST: Center for Biological Diversity
SPEAKERS: The presentation will feature the Center's Lori Ann Burd, environmental health director, and Dr. Nate Donley, senior scientist.
WHEN: Aug. 13, 2020 at 4 PM - 5 PM PT
More than a billion pounds of pesticides are used in the United States each year.
While many assume this use is highly regulated, the reality is that the Environmental Protection Agency has for decades refused to assess the impacts of pesticides on endangered species or look at some of the most basic impacts on human health, like farmworker exposure or how our bodies react to being exposed to multiple pesticides at once.
Join us for an hour to learn what the Center is doing to ensure that endangered species and people, especially vulnerable farmworkers and children, are protected from dangerous pesticides and how you can help.
About a quarter of pesticides used in the states are deemed too dangerous to be used in the European Union and other major agricultural nations. Pesticides are also a leading cause of pollinator declines, but are still heavily used even on public lands set aside for wildlife protection.
There’s much work to be done to protect all of us from pesticides.
