Anti-Pesticide Activists Are NEVER Satisfied

 

Highland Park wants to use Confront, a product that NON–EXPERT Sangeet Singh–Gasson has ARBITRARILY DECREED as being a « dangerous herbicide ».

Confront was actually brought to market as an alternative to the HATED 2,4–D, but clearly, this form of APPEASEMENT was NOT ENOUGH to satisfy Anti–Pesticide Activists like Sighn–Gasson.

And evidently, Sighn–Gasson is among the MANY activists that will SAY ANYTHING in order to get their way.

Sighn–Gasson ALLEGES that some provinces in Canada « forbid » the product Confront.

Well, well, well … Sighn–Gasson CONVENIENTLY IGNORES THE FACTS ! ― Confront was and has NEVER been available in Canada, and it certainly has NOT been « forbidden » from that market.

Overall, Sighn–Gasson is WRONG about Confront, and is MOST DEFINITELY WRONG about the safety of pest control products.

Thanks to Sighn–Gasson, we are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI–PESTICIDE TERRORISM where science is trumped by FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOUR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

 

NOT Credible

 

Anti–Pesticide Activists, like Sighn–Gasson, are NOT CREDIBLE experts on pest control products.

This PROBLEM WITH LACK–OF–ACTIVIST–CREDIBILITY reflects the overall larger problem with ALL Anti–Pesticide Activists.

There are NO Anti–Pesticide Activists who are scientists or researchers with credentials in the field of pest control products.

NONE ! ― they are NOT COMPETENT to talk about pest control products.

Nonetheless, Anti–Pesticide Activists are PARTISAN, ARROGANT, and NARCISSISTIC ENOUGH to DEMAND that other people do things their way.

Sighn–Gasson is DEMANDING that Highland Park employ Chip Osborne as a FOR–PROFIT consultant, despite the fact that Osborne has NO background, training or expertise in the SUCCESSFUL management of Green Spaces.

Osborne is merely a PARTISAN–DIRECTOR for an Anti–Pesticide Organization with a HUGE VESTED INTEREST IN SUBVERSIVELY PERPETUATING IMAGINARY DANGERS about pest control products.

 

 

Beyond Pesticides

 

Beyond Pesticides is a Non–Expert Tax–Exempt Partisan Anti–Pesticide Organization.

This organization is an expert in FUND–RAISING, but has NO EXPERTISE in science or research.

The PRIMARY CONCERNS of Beyond Pesticides is BUSINESS, CASH–FLOW, PROFIT, and CELEBRITY.

Beyond Pesticides PAID–FOR–PROFIT two of its PARTISAN–DIRECTORS to operate as Anti–Pesticide LOBBYISTS in the CONSPIRACY to PROHIBIT pest control products in the High Land Park.

One Beyond Pesticides DIRECTOR was a mere zoology professor, Warren Porter, and the other, Chip Osborne, was an organic lawn care operator with a failing business.

Neither one of these directors has ANY recognized background, training, or expertise in matters concerning pest control products.

Their advice is TOTALLY WORTHLESS and UTTERLY USELESS.

 

 

Children Are NOT At Risk

 

According to Sighn–Gasson, applying pest control products to playing fields is somehow unsafe.

As do so many Anti–Pesticide Activists, Sighn–Gasson associates ANY problem with ANY pesticide ( even if only perceived and not proven ) with ALL pesticides, and evidently, the FEAR–MONGERING is now being applying BEYOND the mere use of a single product like Confront.

Non–Expert Anti–Pesticide Activists, like Sighn–Gasson, are GREATLY MISTAKEN by saying that, as a result of the PROHIBITION of pest control products, fewer children will be exposed to some IMAGINARY DANGER.

What DANGER !?!? ― pest control products CAUSE NO HARM, including chronic effects such as CANCER.

Pest control products have a WIDE SAFETY MARGIN.

NO HARM WILL OCCUR when pest control products are used according to label directions.

Anti–Pesticide Activists like Sighn–Gasson are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE concerning pest control products.

Conveniently IGNORING Leading Authorities

Sighn–Gasson expresses MOCK–PARTISAN–OUTRAGE about Professor Bruce Branham.

Professor Branham was the LEADING EXPERT who provided COMPETENT ADVICE to Park District Board of Highland.

Predictably, Sighn–Gasson was NOT satisfied with a LEADING EXPERT who presented the fact that pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY–SAFE.

Anti–Pesticide Activists, like Sighn–Gasson, also CONVENIENTLY IGNORE the expertise of ANY leading authority in matters concerning pest control products.

Partisan Anti–Pesticide Activists like Sighn–Gasson are NEVER satisfied !

Anti–Pesticide Activists, like Sighn–Gasson, also CONVENIENTLY IGNORE the fact that pest control products are EPA–APPROVED, FEDERALLY–LEGAL, SCIENTIFICALLY–SAFE, and PRACTICALLY–NON–TOXIC.

They do so when it suits THEM !

 

 

Scientifically Safe ― Experts

 

Since Sighn–Gasson appears to be dissatisfied with Professor Branham, perhaps she could avail herself to OTHER LEADING EXPERTS.

The following LEADING EXPERTS have RECOGNIZED expertise, training and background in matters concerning pest control products ―

● AMES, Bruce N., Professor

● DOST, Frank N., Doctor

● DRYSDALE, Art C., Horticulturist

● EDWARDS, J. Gordon, Doctor

● MILLOY, Steven J., Juris Doctor

● RITTER, Leonard, Doctor

● ROSS, Gilbert L., Doctor

● SCHWARCZ, Joseph A., Doctor

● SOLOMON, Keith R., Professor

● STEPHENSON, Gerald R., Professor

● WHELAN, Elizabeth M., Doctor

● WOOD, Joel, Doctor

 

 

Children AT RISK

 

Non–Expert Sighn–Gasson ALLEGES that « spraying children’s playing fields with pesticides is unnecessary », and somehow believes that Pesticide–Free Maintenance is a good idea for children.

This is FALSE ! ― Sighn–Gasson is using UNVERIFIED SUCCESS STORIES that, in fact, are FALSE !

Moreover, PROHIBITING pest control products under the PRETEXT of somehow protecting children’s health is actually HARMFUL TO CHILDREN.

There are NO valid reports of pest control product problems with children.

In fact, children are AT RISK with the PROHIBITION of pest control products.

The use of pest control applications on playing fields is NOT ONLY SAFE, it is also NECESSARY.

Without pest control products, playing surfaces become GARBAGE DUMPS, and are a DANGER for children to play on.

Pesticide–Free Maintenance creates GARBAGE DUMPS and DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES ― ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN !

Furthermore, Anti–Pesticide Activists are willing to COMPROMISE ON THE SAFETY OF CHILDREN who need a CUSHION OF HIGH–QUALITY TURFGRASS when playing and running and falling.

Without conventional pest control products, playing surfaces become THIN AND YELLOW, and OVER–RUN WITH WEEDS, INFESTED WITH INSECTS, and DISMALLY DESTROYED.

Turfgrass pests DISRUPT THE UNIFORMITY OF THE TURF and MAY AFFECT THE SAFETY and PLAYABILITY of the playing surface for footing, ball bounce, etc …

WELL–MAINTAINED, THICKER, GREENER, and PEST–FREE playing surfaces have MANY PRACTICAL BENEFITS.

WELL–MAINTAINED turfgrass playing surfaces act as a NATURAL CUSHION as well as an EFFECTIVE SPONGE for rain water.

THIN AND YELLOW playing surfaces OVER–RUN WITH WEEDS and INFESTED WITH INSECTS provide NONE of these benefits.

They are OVER–RUN by Dandelions and other weed pests, and are DESTROYED by INFESTING insect pests like White Grubs.

When it rains, THIN AND YELLOW playing surfaces become SLIPPERY MUD BOGS.

When dry, THIN AND YELLOW playing surfaces become AS HARD AS CONCRETE.

Pesticide–Free Maintenance actually HURTS kids ― falling on SLIPPERY MUD or BAKED SOIL is the direct cause of BROKEN BONES, TWISTED ANKLES, and SKINNED KNEES.

Any trend favouring Pesticide–Free Maintenance will lead to GARBAGE DUMPS, DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES, and HURT CHILDREN.

TURFGRASS QUALITY and SAFETY are generally IMPROVED when pest control products are used judiciously to control pests that can’t be controlled in other ways.

Pest control products ENHANCE the Urban Landscape, and makes playing surfaces SAFE FOR CHILDREN.

Background Information from an Independent Perspective

 

 

Highland Park

 

 

Highland Park is one of several municipalities located on the North Shore of the Chicago Metropolitan Area.

 

Highland Park is a relatively affluent suburb of Chicago, located 40 kilometres north of Chicago on the shore of Lake Michigan, in the State of Illinois. 

 

The population is over 33,000. 

 

Highland Park is considered a Democratic stronghold, which explains the small CONSPIRACY within this community to prohibit pest control products used in the Urban Landscape.

 

Local Anti-Pesticide Activists ALLEGE that the community has somehow shown overwhelming support for organic lawn care.

 

This is FALSE !

 

LESS THAN TWO-DOZEN Non-Expert Anti-Pesticide Lunatic-Residents have COERCED, INTIMIDATED, and TERRORIZED Park Commissioners to PROHIBIT pest control products from the community’s athletic fields, under the PRETEXT that children and ground-water are at risk.

 

The Highland Non-Expert Anti-Pesticide Lunatics are WRONG.

 

 

 

Cigarettes

 

 

Highland Non-Expert Anti-Pesticide Activists have attempted to compare pest control products with cigarettes.

 

Any comparison of CIGARETTES to pest control products is PITIFULLY RIDICULOUS, as well as LAUGHABLY STUPID !

 

Cigarettes have NOTHING IN COMMON with conventional pest control products.

 

Anti-Pesticide Activists use this NONSENSICAL COMPARISON purely as a means of CO-ERCING and INFLUENCING the public into believing that it is necessary to PROHIBIT pest control products, despite the fact that they are HEALTH-CANADA-APPROVED, FEDERALLY-REGULATED, SCIENTIFICALLY-SAFE, and PRACTICALLY-NON-TOXIC.

 

There is NO FEDERAL REGISTRATION of tobacco products.

 

By comparison, there IS a FEDERAL REGISTRATION of pest control products.

 

There is NO agency that regulates tobacco, except perhaps for restricting access to young people.

 

By comparison, there IS an agency that REGULATES pest control products    United States Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Moreover, cigarettes are ABOVE THE LAW because our governments have chosen to shield them from the regulatory process. 

 

This is NOT the case with pest control products.

 

Our governments have chosen to HEAVILY REGULATE pest control products. 

 

In America, pest control products are STRINGENTLY TESTED and REGULATED in order to ensure that they are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE and CAUSE NO HARM.

 

 

 

Scientifically Safe

 

 

Pest control products used for turfgrass maintenance SELECTIVELY AND EFFECTIVELY CONTROL pests, but are COMPLETELY SAFE for other non-target organisms    they DO NOT INJURE TURFGRASSES, and have NO persistence beyond season of use.

 

These products can be USED SAFELY because the amount required to affect human health is SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER than any potential level of exposure.

 

We are exposed daily to numerous examples of man-made and natural substances that may impact human health, but harmless in small doses ( example, low levels of naturally-occurring cyanide in almonds ), and conversely, ordinarily harmless substances that can be deadly if over-consumed ( example, water ).

 

The impact of pest control products on human health is EXTENSIVELY EVALUATED by the Environmental Protection Agency to ensure that these compounds, like other chemicals, such as prescription drugs and vitamins, are SAFE when directions for use are properly followed.

 

Highland Residents DO NOT need to be worried about the infiltration of pest control products into the local watershed.

 

Pest control products used in the Urban Landscape DO NOT enter our lakes and rivers through surface runoff and storm sewers.

 

Moreover, the PROHIBITION of pest control products in the Urban Landscape will NOT improve the water quality of our streams and rivers.

 

It is a MYTH to believe that ANY PROHIBITION protects the environment.

 

Pest control products are ACCEPTABLE FOR CONTINUED USE IN AMERICA because …

 

   Pest control products are APPROVED for use by the EPA

 

   EPA-Approved pest control products MEET STRICT HEALTH AND SAFETY STANDARDS

 

   Pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE

 

   EPA-Approved pest control products provide a reasonable certainty that NO HARM will occur from their use

 

   Overall, when they are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to health and the environment

 

 

 

Beyond Pesticides

 

 

Beyond Pesticides is a Non-Expert Tax-Exempt Partisan Anti-Pesticide Organization.

 

This organization is an expert in FUND-RAISING, but has NO EXPERTISE in science or research.

 

The PRIMARY CONCERNS of Beyond Pesticides is BUSINESS, CASH-FLOW, PROFIT, and CELEBRITY.

 

Beyond Pesticides PAID-FOR-PROFIT two of its PARTISAN-DIRECTORS to operate as ANTI-PESTICIDE LOBBYISTS in the CONSPIRACY to PROHIBIT pest control products in the High Land .Park.

 

One Beyond Pesticides DIRECTOR was a mere zoology professor, Warren Porter, and the other, Chip Osborne, was an organic lawn care operator with a failing business.

 

Neither one of these directors has ANY recognized background, training, or expertise in matters concerning pest control products.

 

Their advice is TOTALLY WORTHLESS and UTTERLY USELESS.

 

Beyond Pesticides is operated by a CLOWNISH group who are clearly NOT COMPETENT to express ANY opinion concerning pest control products.

 

The Board of Non-Expert Directors of Beyond Pesticides is comprised of 

 

   a duck farm operator

 

   a native Indian movement organizer

 

   a zoology professor

 

   an indigent goat herder

 

   an organic lawn care operator with a failing business

 

   an organic produce distributor

 

In other words, the LUNATIC-JOKERS at Beyond Pesticides know NOTHING about conventional pest control products ! 

 

NO ONE at Beyond Pesticides is COMPETENT TO GIVE ADVICE !
