Awash in Deadly Toxics, Biological Life Threatened
Two reports today which further highlight the degree to which poisons used in everyday life are deadly and changing ecosystems. The widely used herbacide Roundup has been found to be killing amphibians in large numbers. And the Californian nuisance plant horseweed in has derived resistance to herbacides used to control it. The world is awash with human created toxics of which we do not know their ecological impacts singlely, much less as a toxic cocktail. The chemical industry is a criminal enterprise, deriving profits from poisoning biological life and ecological systems upon which we all depend.
