These idiot, moronic republicans sit on the Science, Space and Technology committee. Just absolutely unbelievable. It is not only the height of offensive, it is dangerous and madness that these imbeciles are in any position of authority and hold the future of the earth in their ignorant hands. Even more pathetic, Americans voted them into office and concur with their world view. How insane is that.

Warming temperatures are cause for the expansion of tick habitat and the massive increase in Lyme disease cases. But, the increase in all insect transmitted diseases will increase worldwide because of climate change/global warming.

It is getting hotter (126 degrees, but it's a dry heat). 106 degrees in San Francisco is unreal, but it happened last year.

Monsanto, maker of Round up, loses court battle and ordered to pay 289 million in damages to dying man. I'm sure it will be appealed and he will die (doctors didn't think he'd make it through the trail) long before it is settled. Monsanto has big bucks.

and, this is an old article (9 years old), but it says that in 2011 88,000 pounds of glyphosate (round up) was in the U.S. Since then it has been named a probable carcinogen and banned in many countries. It's in our water, our air, and many foods--from Cheerios to baby food to Ben & Jerry's.

Farmers are spraying it on crops right before harvest to hurry the drying process along. Weeds are becoming immune and it is ruining the soil. Anyway, it's everywhere and in too much food and water.
Here are a couple of articles to peruse.

Quaker Oats tested exceed (by more than 100 %) the dosage considered beyond the adequate measure of safety. Now round up is used to hasten the harvest--nothing to do with weed control. This is insane. Some sampled organic oats showed evidence of round up contamination, as well, but in levels much lower and far below the 'adequate measure of safety'. This will continue until the public decides no more. Meanwhile, keep feeding yourself and your kids massive does of round up. Click on the link for named brands and detected levels.
This is not new information. This has been known for many years now and information has been available. So, really, nothing new. And, ppb stands for parts per billion.
