Explosive: Pesticides in Paradise: the war on life in Hawaii
If you were the President of the United States, and the land where you were raised was under attack, would you see something, say something, do something?
If you were a tourist, would you visit this place?

I’ll present several key quotes which, in a half-sane world, would force government officials to take immediate and drastic action to stop the onslaught and punish the corporate offenders with lengthy prison sentences.
Yet, right now, the voters of Maui County, who scored a victory last November, who created a new law temporarily blocking Monsanto and Dow from continuing these inhuman experiments, while a true investigation uncovered all the secret details…the voters of Maui are embroiled in a federal court room to make their entirely legitimate vote stand up.
Similar legislative actions on Kauai and the Big Island have been struck down.
As you read the quotes below, keep in mind we are talking about human experimentation with no informed consent from the population. This is not, for the most part, commercial agriculture.
From the report, Pesticides in Paradise:
“Since 1987 Hawai’i has hosted more cumulative [pesticide] field trials (3,243) than any other state. In 2014 alone, 178 different GE field tests were conducted on over 1,381 sites in Hawai’i (vs. only 175 sites in California).”
“DuPont-Pioneer applied 90 different pesticide formulations containing 63 different active ingredients on Kaua’i from 2007 to 2012. The company sprayed on two-thirds (65%) of the days over this period and made from 8.3 to 16 applications per application day on average.”
“The third-most frequently applied class of pesticides is also among the most toxic: the organophosphate insecticide chlorpyrifos was sprayed an average of 91 days each year.” [The EPA has written, concerning organophosphates and carbamates: “Both of these classes of older insecticides are very highly acutely toxic to bees and…are also very highly acutely toxic to humans and wildlife.”]
“Restricted Use Pesticides (RUP) [the most toxic pesticides] sales data for Kaua’i show that 22 RUPs containing 18 active ingredients were applied in agriculture from 2010 to 2012.”
“The American Academy of Pediatrics recently published a major report entitled ‘Pesticide Exposure in Children’ that reviewed 195 medical studies; their chief concerns were that pesticides are linked to childhood cancers, neurobehavioral and cognitive deficits, adverse birth outcomes, and asthma.”
“In adult populations, pesticide exposure has been linked to Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, bladder and colon cancers, Parkinson’s disease, depression, and disrupting our hormonal or endocrine systems.”

Corporate wars against populations don’t require Congressional approval or Presidential assertions of power. They only need the acquiescence of government. Silent permission. The pretension of ignorance. And oh yes, sold-out complicit major media.
