Environmentalists Proving They Don’t Care About the Environment (Guest: Angela Logomasini)

April 18, 2018

Environmentalists are suing the manufacturer of a popular pesticide in spite of scientific evidence proving the pesticide is safe.

For over twenty years, the pesticide Roundup has seen safe use worldwide. Every environmental regulatory body that has ever examined Roundup has approved it as safe for use. Yet, more than 700 farmers, gardeners, and landscapers are suing Monsanto, who produces the pesticide, claiming it is a carcinogen. During a weeklong scientific tutorial held on the case, the Judge hearing the lawsuit expressed skepticism the pesticide posed the danger claimed. Angela Logomasini, discusses why the judge is correct. Roundup is safe for human use and it should not be further regulated.
