Prohibition Failure    Madison’s Schizophrenia

 

Municipal Policy

 

 

Some observers have stated that the Madison Parks Division’s use of pesticides reflects the city’s schizophrenic history of pesticide use    and several violations of its own [ anti-pesticide ] policy. 

 

In 1991, the Madison’s City Council severely restricted the use of pesticides, and in 2002 Mayor Sue Bauman placed a moratorium on the use of Roundup ( glyphosate ). 

 

In 2004, the city developed a pesticide policy, stating   

 

The City of Madison agrees with the U.S. EPA that « all pesticides are toxic to some degree, and the commonplace widespread use of pesticides is both a major environmental problem and a public health issue ».  [  ?!?!  ]

 

 

NORAHG Response

 

PESTICIDES LIKE 2,4-D ARE SAFE FOR KIDS !

 

In the urban landscape, pesticides are NOT major environmental problem and NOT a public health issue.  According to a leading expert, Mr William Jordan, Deputy Director, Office of Pesticide Programs, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA ), parents DO NOT need to worry as long as a pest control product is used correctly.  The EPA has spent a lot of time looking at products like 2,4-D, and has concluded that it is SAFE FOR KIDS.

Prohibition Failure    Madison’s Schizophrenia

 

Integrated Pest Management

 

 

The policy, in line with an « Integrated Pest Management » ( IPM ) approach, states that all city departments « should give preference to non-pesticide management practices » [ which do not work ]  and use the « least risky » pesticides only as « a last resort ». 

 

 

NORAHG Response

 

GREEN ALTERNATIVE PESTICIDES ARE NOT SAFER & DO NOT WORK !

 

There are NO alternatives that work.  Prohibition is somehow validated by pesticide-hating fanatжcs who merely concoct MYTHS against conventional products.  When it comes to controlling pests, the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products should be a no-brainer.  Anti-pesticide prohibition leads to the catastrophic problems of weed invasion and insect infestation.  It is impossible for professionals, and even home-owners, to protect their properties by using so-called green alternative pesticides.  There are NO viable, NO efficacious, NO economical, and NO low-risk alternatives to replace conventional pest control products.  Green alternative pesticides are BOGUS AND DISMAL FAILURES    they DO NOT work and they are NOT innovative products.  By definition, ALTERNATIVES ARE INFERIOR, which is why they did NOT win the market-place originally.  Overall, green alternative pesticides are ineffective, inadequate, inferior, high-risk, more toxic, and stunningly expensive !  In many cases, green alternative pesticides are questionably higher in toxicity, and pose higher environmental risks.  Green alternative pesticides and even organic fertilizers often contain living pathogenic organisms, fermented materials, or metals that may be deemed unsafe for children, adults, and the environment.  Conventional pest control products are absolutely necessary.  Fortunately, conventional pest control products are safe, effective, economical, and low-risk.

IPM PROVIDES NO BENEFIT !

 

The interpretations of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) provide NO BENEFIT and NO SCIENTIFIC BASIS with the use of simplistic messages like « use least toxic pesticides as a last resort » and « apply it only as a last resort ».  According to three scientific organizations    Weed Science Society of America ( WSSA ), American Phytopathological Society ( APS ), and Plant-Insect Ecosystems Section of the Entomological Society of America ( P-IE ESA )    these messages are NOT THE CORRECT APPROACHES to the pesticide component of an Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) program. 

 

http://pesticidetruths.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Force-Of-Nature-FAILURE-of-IPM-2012-11-12-UPDATE-Least-Toxic-Pesticides-Applied-As-A-Last-Resort-pdf-300-dpi.pdf

 

http://pesticidetruths.com/2012/11/20/integrated-pest-management-least-toxic-pesticides-applied-as-a-last-resort-2012-11-12/

 

 

A Lunatжc Pesticide Management Advisory Subcommittee of experts was created ( by ordinance ) to review city pesticide use and advise on IPM practices. 

 

The 2004 pesticide policy appears to still be in place, but in 2013, Mayor Paul Soglin dissolved the pesticide committee. 

 

In 2015, the city’s Lunatжc Pollinator Protection Task Force recommended that the city limit pesticide use to protect bees and butterflies.  [  ?!?!  ] 

 

Regardless, city departments CONTINUE TO USE hundreds of gallons of pesticides ( glyphosate; 2,4-D; and several others ) on athletic fields and other city lands.  [    because green alternatives & practices DO NOT WORK !  ] 

 

Oddly, the Madison’s assistant parks superintendent is quoted as saying said that the city only prohibits pesticides in median strips. 

 

Actually, the city’s pesticide policy, which says   

 

The City shall NOT USE ( emphasis in original ) pesticides to control dandelions and other broadleaf weeds on general parklands, median strips, street terraces, roadsides, general lawn areas, and athletic fields that are not reserved, nor are fees paid for their use. 

 

The Parks Division also admits to applying Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide that the task force specifically requested the city not use because of its known negative effects on bees.  [  WRONG !  ]

 

The city pesticide policy prohibits the use « any pesticide under EPA Special Review ». 

 

Imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid insecticide, is under review.

NEONICOTINOID INSECTICIDES DO NOT CAUSE BEE DEATHS !

 

There is a certain junkyard dog mentality with bee conspiracy fanatжcs.  When they latch onto an issue, they never let go.  So it goes with their subversive attacks against Neonicotinoid Insecticides.  A decade ago, a sudden die-off in some regional honey bee hives launched fund-raising juggernaut that deceived to protect us from yet another apocalypse.  And yet, anti-neonicotinoid & bee-conspiracy fanatжcs falsely allege their methods have worked so far, because of their logic of MAGIC BEANS SCIENCE.

Glyphosate

 

 

Is Roundup one of the « least risky » pesticides the city could use, per its policy ?!?! 

 

In 2015 the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as a « probable carcinogen », and numerous scientific studies have associated it with birth defects, low birth rates, hormonal disruption and other human health effects     as well as negative effects on amphibians, fish and other animals.  [  ?!?!  ] 

 

On July 7th, 2017, California added glyphosate to its list of chemicals known to cause cancer.  [  ?!?!  ] 

 

Monsanto has worked hard to promote the use of glyphosate as a safe way to protect « native » species by removing « invasive » or « alien » species     the top reason for its use in Madison’s conservation areas. 

 

Monsanto PR materials describe glyphosate « as safe as table salt ».

HEALTH CANADA HAS VINDICATED GLYPHOSATE !

 

Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency ( PMRA ) is responsible for administering the Pest Control Products Act on behalf of the Minister of Health.  At the PMRA, before a pest control product is allowed to be used or sold in Canada, it must undergo a rigorous scientific assessment process which provides reasonable certainty that NO HARM WILL OCCUR, including chronic effects such as cancer, when used according to label directions.  Health Canada has reached the following conclusions about Glyphosate         Glyphosate is NOT expected to pose risks of concern to human health or the environment      Health Canada has granted the continued registration of Glyphosate      Health Canada, as well as all other national regulatory agencies world-wide, have vindicated Glyphosate    these agencies include those within the European Union, the United States, and the United Nations      NO pesticide regulatory authority in the world considers Glyphosate to be a carcinogenic risk of concern      NO risk of concerns to human health or the environment have been identified with Glyphosate’s surfactants, like Polyethoxylated Tallow Amines ( POEA )      Non-occupational risks are NOT of concern      Non-occupational risks from by-stander dermal exposure are NOT of concern      Overall, there are currently NO environmental incident reports involving Glyphosate in Canada      Products containing Glyphosate are UNLIKELY to affect your health      The dietary risks for Glyphosate are NOT a risk of concern      There are NO health concerns with Glyphosate for all segments of the population, including pregnant and nursing women, infants, children, and seniors, when all possible food sources are eaten every day, over a life-time      There is NO expectation of risk of concern for pollinators, beneficial insects, and amphibians      To further protect workers entering treated sites, a Restricted-Entry Interval of 12 hours is now required for agricultural uses of Glyphosate.   The evidence in favour of Glyphosate is overwhelming.  ( See links below. )  WILLIAM H GATHERCOLE AND NORAH G

Background Information

 

US EPA Carefully Regulates Pesticides

 

 

Anti-pesticide fanatжcs often use the following statement from the US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) to give the public the false and fraudulent impression that children and adults are being exposed to imaginary danger whenever a pest control product is used   

 

Pesticides are designed to ( in most cases ) kill pests.  Many pesticides can also pose risks to people.  

 

However, these fanatжcs conveniently neglect to include the following sentences which are included in the same statement 

 

However, in many cases the amount of pesticide people are likely to be exposed to is TOO SMALL TO POSE A RISK. 

 

To determine risk, one must consider both the toxicity or hazard of the pesticide and the likelihood of exposure. 

 

According to US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ), in a report entitled « Pesticides and Food : Health Problems Pesticides May Pose » 

 

Laboratory studies show that pesticides CAN CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS, such as birth defects, nerve damage, cancer, and other effects that might occur over a long period of time. 

 

However, these effects depend on HOW TOXIC the pesticide is, and HOW MUCH of it is consumed. 

 

Some pesticides also pose unique health risks to CHILDREN. 

 

Within the same report, US EPA states that those issues concerning pest control products are addressed through its assessment program 

 

For these reasons, the Federal Government, in cooperation with the States, carefully regulates pesticides to ensure that their use DOES NOT POSE UNREASONABLE RISKS to human health or the environment. 

 

In particular, the Federal pesticide program is designed to ensure that these products can be used with a reasonable certainty that they WILL POSE NO HARM TO INFANTS, CHILDREN, AND ADULTS.

VICTORIES      So far, several jurisdictions ( states, cities, counties, districts, and towns ) in America that have ended, rejected, rescinded, or stopped their prohibitions against pest control products used in the urban landscape. 

 

Fortunately, the majority of U.S. states have legislated pre-emption laws in order to stop America’s anti-pesticide & environmental terrжrism. 

 

In general terms, pre-emption refers to the ability of one level of government to over-ride the laws of a lower level. 

 

Pre-emption laws have effectively stopped the possibility of state or municipal prohibitions against pest control products, and even fertilizers, used in the urban landscape and by the agriculture industry. 

 

Furthermore, in The Era Of Trump, the golf and professional lawn care industries will no longer fear arbitrary prohibitions against pest control products that are, in fact, safe and effective.

Proposed Self-Imposed

Prohibition On County-

Owned Playgrounds Rejected

 

Ill-Informed Activist-Parents Were

Mock-Concerned About Children &

Pest Control Applications In Parks

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

On November 21st, 2016, the Anne Arundel county council narrowly rejected legislation that would have prohibited against the use of pest control products on county-owned playgrounds. 

 

For the control invasive weed pests and destructive insect pests, the proposed prohibition would have only allowed ineffective [ and non-chemical ?!?! ] green alternative pesticides    conventional & effective pest control products would have been prohibited. 

 

The fanatжcal-prohibition was proposed after complaints, coercion, and intimidation from ill-informed activist-parents who were mock-concerned about children and pest control applications in parks. 

 

Should fanatical activist-parents be allowed near children ?!?!

In early 2012, Ashland’s parks commissioners unanimously rescinded prohibition, and re-authorized conventional pest control products on baseball and softball infields since parks department staff reported that organic pesticides proved largely ineffective for controlling weeds. 

 

Weeds took over the dirt areas of the infields in 2011, creating an uneven and unsafe surface, presenting a liability issue for the parks department. 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

SUMMARY

 

 

On August 21st, 2012, Durango city councillors listened to a three-hour debate involving science and calls for decisive action to save the environment to persuade them to impose anti-pesticide prohibition against the use of pest control products in the urban landscape. 

 

Anti-pesticide lunatжc Katrina Blair attempted to deceive city councillors by alleging that other jurisdictions have successfully adopted similar ordinances, such as Boulder, Colorado. 

 

Cathy Metz, the city’s director of parks and recreation, noted the abundance of weeds in Boulder parks when relying on so-called organic pesticide-free maintenance. 

 

According to Metz   

 

I don’t think boulder is the example we want to follow. 

 

They get complaints every year about dandelions. 

 

Boulder is internationally-recognized for the poor condition of its green spaces    they are garbage dumps. 

 

Pest control products are scientifically-safe, will cause no harm, and are no threat to children. 

 

Because the maintenance of Boulder green spaces is such a dismal failure, municipal government officials have no choice than encourage the public to somehow appreciate dandelions. 

 

They are not competent to manage Boulder’s green spaces.

SUMMARY

 

 

In 2011, the Chicago Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) and Pesticide-Free Program was pronounced dismal failure. 

 

The IPM program contributed to the worst playing field conditions the Chicago district has seen in more than a decade. 

 

After four years, Chicago cancelled the integrated pest management program and rescinded the prohibition of pest control products. 

 

Because of Chicago’s adoption of integrated pest management ( IPM ) pesticide-free program, weeds represented more than 60 per cent of ground coverage. 

 

IPM cultural practices failed and did not control weed and insect pests. 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

SUMMARY

 

 

By early 2012, Park District of Highland Park concluded that organic and pesticide-free maintenance of its sports fields was a dismal failure. 

 

The manual weed picking program was deemed totally ineffective. 

 

In order to rid the sports fields of weeds by using manual weed picking, Highland Park observed that you would need an army and concluded that « we don’t think that’s a solution ». 

 

The city’s professional labour force, along with volunteers, were devalorized into a group of mere cotton-picking niggжrs. 

 

Highland Park needed to rescue the weed-ridden sports fields from organic and pesticide-free maintenance failures. 

 

Three major sports fields were over-run with more than 60 per cent weed invasion. 

 

The non-expert anti-pesticide activists, like the lunatжc-clowns from Beyond Pesticides, who recommended organic and pesticide-free maintenance, knew nothing and were utterly incompetent. 

 

Pest control products used in the urban landscape are government-approved, federally-legal, scientifically-safe, and practically-non-toxic. 

 

These products did not need to be prohibited. 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

SUMMARY

 

 

On August 21st, 2012, the Durango city council voted unanimously to reject a petition-driven ordinance ( a.k.a. anti-pesticide prohibition ) against the use of conventional pest control products, as well as non-organic fertilizers, on city parks and property. 

 

The city of Durango is located in the state of Colorado, with a population of almost 17,000. 

 

Durango’s municipal government officials attempted to appease local anti-pesticide lunatжcs with so-called chemical free parks. 

 

Two city-owned parks, Brookside and Pioneer, were designated as so-called chemical free parks. 

 

The condition of these parks relied upon so-called organic pesticide-free maintenance and non-organic fertilizer. 

 

The chemical free parks were abysmal failures. 

 

They were examples of why organic maintenance cannot work on a larger scale without turning the entire city into a gigantic garbage dump. 

 

The so-called chemical-free parks were/are unsightly due to the broad-leaved plantain weeds growing amidst the grass where the children play. 

 

It would be preferable to apply pest control products that are scientifically-safe, will cause no harm, and are no threat to children. 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance is not economically viable without droves of laborers to hand pull unwanted plants.

SUMMARY

 

 

Everett is a coastal city in the state of Washington, with a population of over 100,000. 

 

The Lowell park pesticide-free pilot-project ended in May 2012, and the city of Everett, Washington, resumed spraying weeds with conventional products. 

 

The application of pest control products was resumed because not enough volunteers could keep the park up to city standards. 

 

It was too much work for volunteers to maintain the whole park, Dunn said. 

 

Without the use of conventional pest control products, city of Everett was forced to resort to the back-breaking and agonizing job of weed pulling by hand ! 

 

Resident weed-picking volunteers, most of whom are elderly and unemployed, were forced to become a group of mere weed-picking niggжrs. 

 

Volunteers were needed because green alternative pesticides were bogus and did not work ! 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

GOLF INDUSTRY    Sharp Park Golf Course ( USA )

 

 

Closure Stopped

 

Sharp Park Will Remain A Golf

Course After A Federal Judge

Dismissed A Legal Challenge

From Golf-Hating Fanatжcs

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

On December 6th, 2012, Sharp Park Golf Course was allowed to remain a golf course after a federal judge dismissed a legal challenge from environmental-terrжrist-organizations.  

 

Golf-hating organizations continue to attack the golf industry. 

 

These  organizations    what are they for ?!?! 

 

They exist for one reason and one only    and that is to make profit.  

 

They prosper from cash donations, illicit businesses, unqualified employment, and government grants, quite often without paying a single penny in taxes. 

 

Sharp Park Golf Course is/was not harming animal species. 

 

According to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Sharp Park would most likely not pose threats to the existence of frogs and snakes on and around the golf course. 

 

As usual, enviro-lunatжcs hate and despise the game of golf. 

 

Enviro-lunatжcs want to shut down golf facilities like Sharp Park. 

 

Golf-hating organizations like National Parks Conservation Association and Wild Equity Institute have terrжrized the city of San Francisco for years over the future of Sharp Park Golf Course. 

 

Sharp Park may still be closed because of their relentless and unceasing lies and mis-information. 

 

The habitat that enviro-lunatжcs are trying to allegedly recover was originally created when the golf course was built along with a sea wall, isolating the Laguna Sal from ocean waves. 

 

If the golf course had never been built, there would have been no habitat for the endangered species. 

 

Nevertheless, golf-hating enviro-lunatжcs seek the destruction of the golf industry. 

 

These terrжrists attack the golf industry under the pretext of alleged ill-effects on the habitats of obscure and insignificant species like garter snakes and tadpoles. 

 

The golf industry should tell anti-golf activists to get off our grASS and roast in hell.

Federal Judge Strikes

Down Ordinance

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

Officials at Kauaʻi County faced the spotlight of scrutiny and the terrжr of the courts.

 

Their anti-pesticide restriction could not be defended in court.

 

Kauaʻi County’s ordinance-restriction arbitrarily and illegally forced the agriculture industry to divulge what pest control products were to be used for crop protection.

 

Kauaʻi County also arbitrarily and illegally forced the agriculture industry to create arbitrary and unnecessary buffer zones near public places like hospitals, schools, and parks.

 

Kauaʻi County’s ordinance was struck down.

 

Kauaʻi County is a county located in the U.S. State of Hawai’i, with a population of 67,000.

 

A federal judge has ruled that the Kauaʻi County law arbitrarily and illegally forcing the agriculture industry to divulge its use of pest control products and Genetically Modified ( GM ) Crops is invalid.

 

On august 25th, 2014, U.S. federal magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favour of four agricultural businesses seeking to stop Kauaʻi County’s arbitrary and illegally restriction from going into effect.

The city’s professional labour force was devalorized into a group of mere cotton-picking niggжrs. 

 

By 2011, government officials rescinded prohibition since residents were no longer interested to volunteer their time in a losing battle against weeds. 

 

Before prohibition, Lawrence spent less than 10,000 dollars per year for pest control products. 

 

However, municipal officials estimated that the cataclysmic cost of a pesticide ban would be 213,000 dollars for equipment, 116,000 dollars annually for staff, and 95,000 dollars annually for materials.

SUMMARY

 

 

Lincoln City’s 2007 move to eliminate pest control products in its parks resulted in a surge of weed growth. 

 

In 2010, Lincoln City spent 260 staff hours with people on their hands and knees weeding, and they still could not keep up with the weeds. 

 

Back when the department was applying pest control products, parks workers would spend only 60 hours. 

 

Lincoln City has had to neglect tasks ranging from manicuring trees to pressure-washing and painting trash cans. 

 

Green alternatives like vinegar acid are more toxic and more dangerous. 

 

They can burn the eyes and skin of workers, so municipal employees had to wear protective masks and suits. 

 

Three years after going pesticide-free, pest control products need to be used again in weed-infested parks. 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance was a dismal failure.

Prohibition Stopped

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

On June 12th, 2014, residents voted in favour of prohibiting against the use of pest control products used in the urban landscape throughout Ogunquit. 

 

That vote was voided because town officials forgot to check with the Maine Board of Pesticides Control prior to the vote, as required. 

 

This result is in direct contradiction to the vote held on June 11th, 2013, when Ogunquit residents defeated a proposal to prohibit against pest control products. 

 

Now the State of Maine has deemed this prohibition as illegal. 

 

The State of Maine deserves congratulations.

SUMMARY

 

 

In 2004, the city of Portland capitulated under pressure from the anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organization called Northwest Coalition for Alternatives to Pesticides ( NCAP ). 

 

The only solutions were the huge cost in paid labour and volunteer work as back-breaking weed-pickers, and hazardous flame-throwers. 

 

Ultimately, the city was only able to afford pesticide-free parks through the use of volunteers who were unreliable, and whose enthusiasm severely declined over a three year period. 

 

When using conventional and scientifically-safe pest control products, Portland spent a mere 371 dollars per year to keep the weeds out. 

 

However, pesticide-free parks came with the cataclysmic cost increase of 3,621 dollars in annual maintenance, and 9,455 dollars in start-up costs for each new park. 

 

Cataclysmic cost increases were also required to pay parks department employees to haul weeds collected by volunteers, and to inspect the parks to make sure weeds were under control. 

 

Organic pesticide-free maintenance meant devalorizing the municipality’s professional labour force into a group of cotton-picking niggжrs.

TRUMP, The Era Of

 

 

Trump Will Drain The Swamp Of

Enviro-Terrжrism In Washington

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

Not only does President Donald Trump intend to « drain the swamp » in Washington, Mr Trump will NOT represent the twisted-interests of anti-pesticide & environmental-terrжrist organizations like Environmental Working Group.

 

With President Trump, the golf and agriculture industries will no longer fear arbitrary prohibitions against pest control products that are, in fact, safe and effective. 

 

Overall, with the historic Trump victory, these industries may no longer need to fear arbitrary prohibitions against pest control products.

 

Dear environmental-terrжrists    get your panties out of a wad. 

 

Let us know when the IRS comes after you under President Trump. 

 

With President Trump, anti-pesticide and pro-global-warming terrжrism will come to an end.

WALLINGFORD, City of ( Connecticut, USA )

 

 

Pesticide-Free Failures With Maintenance,

Manual Weed Picking, Integrated Pest

Management, & Stunningly Exorbitant Costs

 

 

SUMMARY

 

 

When residents of Wallingford, Connecticut, see an baseball in-field over-grown with weeds, they get really upset about the pesticide ban failure. 

 

Anti-pesticide prohibition has inflicted a host of problems that were not really thought out properly. 

 

Because of Wallingford’s 2012 reckless and arbitrary prohibition against pest control products used in the urban landscape, municipal employees cannot use safe and effective herbicides, instead, they pull the weeds by hand and use weed trimmers. 

 

Within 18 months, Wallingford had a substantial change in the turf thickness on the athletic fields, and weeds were out of control around the buildings and landscape beds, converting green spaces into weed-infested garbage dumps.

 

After prohibition was imposed, Wallingford’s schools were forced to spend exorbitant amounts of money. 

 

The schools were forced to buy over 40,000 dollars’ worth of equipment, and were forced to hire more personnel to pull weeds. 

 

The exorbitant cost of a so-called organic pesticide-free program    with no conventional pest control products    was significantly more expensive than an Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) program that allows pesticide use as a last resort. 

 

According to David Paul, director of facilities for the city school system, organic green alternative pesticides « just don’t work, and whatever does remotely work is so expensive it’s not conducive to our budgets ». 

 

In Wallingford, green alternative pesticides are a dismal failure. 

 

Moreover, Wallingford municipal employees are forced to resort to manual labour, and are required to hand-pull weeds, just like cotton-picking niggжrs. 

 

Those who support overturning the prohibition believe not using pest control products can still create a harmful environment for students.

 

Actually, children are at risk with anti-pesticide prohibition. 

 

Sports fields are over-grown with clovers and dandelions. 

 

Clover also attracts sting and potentially deadly bees. 

 

If children play on a weed-infested pesticide-free sports field, what happens if they get stung by bees ?!?!

 

If children play on a weed-infested pesticide-free sports field, what happens if they have a deadly allergy to bees ?!?!

WE SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT PROHIBITION FROM AN INDEPENDENT PERSPECTIVE !

 

We are the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that conspire to destroy the Green space and other industries ( NORAHG ).  As a non-profit and independent organization, we are environmentalists who are dedicated to reporting about truth-challenged pesticide-hating fanatжcs ( HUJE ) who conspire to destroy businesses that are dependent on the use of safe and effective conventional pest control products.  We also report on the work of several highly-rated leading experts who have recognized expertise, training, and background in matters concerning pest control products, and who promote environmental realism and pesticide truths. 

 

NORAHG is the sworn enemy of lying, pompous, smug, uneducated, & pesticide-hating enviro-fanatжcs.  Overwhelming scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that pest control products are scientifically-safe, and will not cause harm to children, adults, animals, or the environment.  ( See links below. ) 

 

Not surprisingly, enviro-fanatжcs have demonstrated that they are incapable of processing overwhelming scientific evidence.  Should we trust these fanatжcs, who conveniently ignore scientific evidence, and attempt to impose their politicized-doctrines and twisted life-style choices against our society ?!?! 

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of Mr William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.  We dare to defy the pesticide-hating fanatжcs by exploring the whole truth from an independent perspective on The Pesticide Truths Web-Site      http://pesticidetruths.com/  

 

With a Conservative victory in the 2019 Canadian Federal Election, there will be NO NATIONAL PROHIBITION against pest control products.
