While Sen. Inhofe and his merry band of fearmongers point to the dire threat posed by environmentalists, industry front groups like The Center for Global Food Issues are out to assure us that there's really nothing wrong dietary fat, growth hormones or pesticides. If you have any doubts, read their intriguingly-titled tome Saving the Planet with Pesticides and Plastic. The book will only set you back $23.95, and I'm sure that money will only fund activities that are safe and healthy. Now, who's the real threat...?
The Center for Media and Democracy has information available on these solid citizens, including director Dennis Avery.
Thanks to Treehugger for the heads-up on these clowns.
