Professor of Medical Ethics and author THOMAS KERNS shows how the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its two related internationally adopted documents - the Convention on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights - can form an effective context for environmental activist campaigns. He outlines three strategies for organizers to follow and points to the effectiveness or California's Stop the Spray movement as a model.

Prof. Kerns is the author of ENVIRONMENTALLY INDUCED ILLNESSES: Ethics, Risk Assessmennt and Human Rights. His college level philosophy course, Environment and Human Rights is on-line

He is the founder of the EHRA - Environment and Human Rights Advisory, a consulting service for environmental organizations and government agencies.

Dr. Tom Kerns, served as a commissioner for the 2006 People's Inquiry in Auckland, New Zealand into impacts and effects of the aerial pesticide spraying over urban areas of Auckland.

Here's the link to Dr. Kerns' comprehensive report on the 23 human rights violations caused by the California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA) spraying pesticides over urban Monterey, CA and Santa Cruz, CA

Ed Brown presents, Unacceptable Levels, a story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us. This film poses challenges to our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact.

DO You STILL Buy This BS?

Dietary pesticides (99.99% all natural).

The toxicological significance of exposures to synthetic chemicals is examined in the context of exposures to naturally occurring chemicals. We calculate that 99.99% (by weight) of the pesticides in the American diet are chemicals that plants produce to defend themselves. Only 52 natural pesticides have been tested in high-dose animal cancer tests, and about half (27) are rodent carcinogens; these 27 are shown to be present in many common foods. We conclude that natural and synthetic chemicals are equally likely to be positive in animal cancer tests. We also conclude that at the low doses of most human exposures the comparative hazards of synthetic pesticide residues are insignificant.

LET'S SEE... Approximately 1.1 billion pounds of pesticide active ingredient are used annually in the U.S., and over 20,000 pesticide products are being marketed in the U.S...
1.1 billion lbs of ACTIVE INGReDIENTS (** of pesticide ~but is not total amount because there are other ingredients added, water/oil added, and when mixed they become 1000xs stronger/hazardous) ...~sprayed into our food, and USA soil.
÷ 320 million USA POP (that's divided by every man, woman and child) =
3.4375 lbs ...amount of pesticide each individual is responsible for in the USA... Alaska included...
Not counting **...

If the mix was 10 to 1, and add.O.66 other ingredients x1000 we could get a better idea... And every year we eat half that amount and the other half is left for a half life in the next lets divide that by 2 and add into our final number every citizen is responsible for RE:pesticides...
But the number will still not be correct because the preceding year would have a 1/4 half life from the year before last!
and so on...don't forget! Our food no longer has nutrition either, so might be a number, but for me it's DINNER!

Each person is responsible for 51,563 LBS of pesticide damage a year...
51562.5 × 320000000 USA pop. 
What does that mean?
That means...
That is as much as our National Debt...almost 19 trillion lbs worth of damage by pesticide every year...and half life added back with all the former years of half lifes not counted...
No wonder Bees and pollenators just want to die...
Also must add in the rest of the world...
and add in every other chemical whatever to do what ever...
Won't be long before everything is dead now...
I wonder what Grandma and Grandpa would think about their pensions supporting this behavior?
After all we do it for our kids right?
And this part...FAIL ...
IT'S ALL A BIG GAME ON US ...They are acting for some other entity ...This unknown presence to me are Gov. Pensions, They run the game thru them, and rip off tax payers quite a bit while doing so...Wall Street is where it emanates from, and so that also includes bankers... Word from the top on what goes? Comes from there.
We need to make it hard &  expensive  to operate, with boycotts, and sharing INFO!
