This came this morning from Graham White, An Open Letter to Tom Vilsac, USDA and Lisa Jackson, EPA.
The heat is rising. Regulators in the UK have retreated from their position that there is “no credible evidence,” (simply parroting what the U.S. EPA has been saying), to agreeing to reassess the approval of neonics in the U.K. There has been not a peep from the EPA yet. There will be another blockbuster study released to the public Thursday, this time from Harvard.
The EPA appears to be in the bunker. None of these managers will admit to anything unless forced to because their fingerprints are all over a decade or more of bad decisions that have led to this disaster.
