Sobre o livro
Chemical poisons have infiltrated all facets of our lives housing, agriculture, work places, sidewalks, subways, schools, parks, even the air we breathe. More than half a century since Rachel Carson issuedSilent Spring her call-to-arms against the poisoning of our drinking water, food, animals, air, and the natural environmentThe Politix of Pesticides takes a fresh look at how activists around the world are fighting back against Monsantos most dangerous creation, glyphosate.The scientists and activists contributing toThe Politix of Pesticides, edited by long-time Green activist Mitchel Cohen, explore not only the dangers of glyphosate better known as Roundup but the campaign which ended with glyphosate declared as a cancer-causing agent. In an age where banned pesticides are simply replaced with newer and more deadly ones, and where corporations such as Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and DuPont scuttle attempts to regulate the products they manufacture, what is the effective, practical, and philosophical framework for banning glyphosate and other pesticides?The Politix of Pesticides explores the best strategies for winning the struggle for healthy foods and a clean environment. It takes lessons from activists who have come before, and offers a new, holistic and radical approach that is essential for defending life on this planet and creating for our kids, and for ourselves, a future worth living in.
