Thomas O. McGarity, “As Trump’s EPA Takes Shape, Here’s Your Pesticide Cheat Sheet” (Civil Eats)

On February 2, 2017, Civil Eats quoted Professor Thomas O. McGarity in a story about how EPA’s regulation of 5 major pesticides has serious implications for the environment and public health. According to the Professor McGarity, President Trump’s recent executive order instructing agencies to repeal two regulations for every new one enacted could affect pesticide rules. When the EPA set pesticide “tolerances” or residue levels, those are rules that could fall victim to the order, he explained.
