Pollinator plan aims high, but falls short. Tell the White House Task Force they can do better.

The White House Pollinator Health Task Force (WHTF) has just released its strategy to address the threats to bees, monarchs and other pollinators.  While the Task Force has developed positive, far reaching goals for honey bees, monarch butterflies and other pollinators, the plan is unfortunately far too weak to actually accomplish those goals.

We think the White House can do better.

Tell Congress to Oppose “Fast Track” for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement

Right now, the largest international trade deal in history--the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP--is being negotiated behind closed doors, and Congress is considering giving it "Fast Track" approval, which would strip Congress of its authority to debate or amend the content of the deal. Tell Congress to vote "No" on Fast track and to make the text of the TPP public!

Tell Congress to stand up for our right to know!

Tell President Obama to stop “Agent Orange” crops and the toxic chemicals they rely on

EPA has just announced approval of Dow Chemical’s new “Enlist Duo” herbicide to be used with Dow's new genetically engineered corn and soybeans. “Enlist Duo” is a mixture of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) and the even more toxic 2,4-D (part of the chemical mixture Agent Orange). Urge President Obama to stop this toxic herbicide and the genetically engineered crops that depend on it!
