ATRAZINE—SAFE FOR PEOPLE, GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE ECONOMY
The documentary movie “Last Call at the Oasis” dramatizes a real crisis—the global shortage of clean water.
But the film gets key facts wrong about atrazine, a herbicide that is not only safe, but actually protects clean water and saves land from cultivation. If not corrected, this negative spin could lead to policies that wind up harming the environment.
Can an herbicide actually protect our precious water resources, support wildlife habitat and benefit the environment? Yes it can!
