Opostos mas ao mesmo tempo tão parecidas. Em 15 anos de amizade muita coisa mudou, mas permaneceram iguais o amor, o companheirismo e a irmandade. Mesmo que as vezes um pouco distantes, crescemos juntas, amadurecemos juntas, estivemos juntas em cada passo uma da outra. E assim estaremos. Permaneceremos. Até o fim. Porque o que é verdadeiro dura para sempre. Te amo minha unicórnia.
After spending over $13 million last year for lobbying, #DowChemical thinks is will be just fine, even though science has proven even tiny amounts of its pesticides cause brain damage to children.
Chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion are pesticides that are huge money-makers for Dow Chemical, with the company selling approximately 5 million pounds of chlorpyrifos in the U.S. each year, according to the Associated Press.
The company has run into a problem now, and it’s not the fact that the #pesticide was “originally derived from a #nervegas developed by #NaziGermany,” though that’s certainly not great for marketing materials. the current problem is a group of studies by federal scientists have found that chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion are harmful to almost 1,800 “critically threatened or endangered species.” Historically, groups like the #EnvironmentalProtectionAgency would want to avoid killing frogs, fish, birds, mammals, and plants, which is why the regulator and two others that it works with to enforce the Endangered Species Act are reportedly “close to issuing findings expected to result in new limits on how and where the highly toxic pesticides can be used,” the AP reports.
