ʻO Monsanto's Tier 1-4 "ʻOihana Hana"

ʻAoʻao 5 o ka palapala Monsanto hōʻike i nā papa ʻehā o nā "hoa hana ʻoihana" i hoʻolālā ʻia e nā luna hoʻokō ʻo Monsanto e komo i kāna papahana hoʻomākaukau IARC.

Ke hoʻopiʻi nei i ka hoʻopiʻi kūʻē ʻana i ka hōʻike maʻi ʻaʻai ma glyphosate

Ua wehewehe ka palapala PR a Monsanto i kā lākou manaʻo e alakaʻi i ka pāpāho ikaika a me ka hoʻolaha ʻana i ka pāpili kaiaulu e "orchestrate outcry with the IARC decision."

Hōʻike ka manaʻo iā Sense About Science e "alakaʻi i ka pane o ka ʻoihana"

Kūkākūkā ka palapala PR a Monsanto i nā hoʻolālā e alakaʻi i ka pāpāho ikaika a me ka hoʻolaha ʻana o ka pāpili kaiaulu e "orctrate outcry with the IARC decision." Hōʻike ka papahana i ka hui Sense About Science (i nā paʻa me kahi māka nīnau) no "alakaʻi i ka pane o ka ʻoihana a hāʻawi i ka pae no nā mea nānā IARC a me ka mea haʻi ʻōlelo ʻoihana."

ʻO Sense About Science kahi aloha lehulehu i hoʻokumu ʻia ma Ladana kēlā kiki ana i paipai i ka hoʻomaopopo ʻana i ka lehulehu i ka ʻepekema, akā ʻo ka hui “ʻike ʻia e lawe i nā kūlana ʻae i ka ʻae ʻepekema a kipaku paha i nā hōʻike e kū nei i ka hōʻeha, "I hōʻike ʻo Liza Gross ma The Intercept.

Kuhi ka ʻaoʻao 2 o ka Monsanto PR palapala i ka lawe waho mua no ka hoʻolālā a me ka hoʻomākaukau: "E hoʻopili iā Henry Miller" e "hoʻokomo / hoʻokumu i ka ʻike lehulehu e pili ana i ka IARC a me nā loiloi."

"Inā wau e hiki ke hoʻomaka me kahi kikoo kiʻekiʻe."

ʻO Henry I.

Kuhi ka papahana Monsanto i ka "MON nona" o ka hana ma ke ʻano ʻo Eric Sachs, ka ʻepekema, ʻenehana a me ke alakaʻi o ka hoʻolaha ʻana iā Monsanto.

Nā palapala ma hope i hōʻike ʻia e The New York Times hōʻike i kēlā Sachs leka uila iā Miller hoʻokahi pule ma mua o ka hōʻike a ka IARC glyphosate e nīnau ai inā makemake ʻo Miller e kākau e pili ana i ka "hoʻoholo kūʻē." Pane maila ʻo Miller, "Inā wau e hiki ke hoʻomaka me kahi kikoʻī kiʻekiʻe." Ma Malaki 23, Miller kau ʻia kahi ʻatikala ma Forbes i "aniani nui" i ka hoʻolālā i hāʻawi ʻia e Monsanto, e like me ka Times. Ua hoʻokaʻawale ʻo Forbes i kona pilina me Miller i ke ala ʻana o ka hana ʻino a me ka holoi i kāna mau ʻatikala mai ka pūnaewele.

Nā nūhou e koho ʻia ʻo Pelekikena Donald Trump e noʻonoʻo nei i ka Lunamakaʻāinana US ʻo Mike Pompeo no kahi pahu kuhina e hōʻike ana i ka pōʻeleʻele o nā lā e hiki mai ana no ka ulu ʻana o ʻAmelika i ka “neʻe ʻana o ka meaʻai,” e kākoʻo nei no ka mālamalama hou a me ka liʻiliʻi o nā pesticides i ka hana ʻana i ka meaʻai.

ʻO Pompeo, kahi Repubalika mai ka moku mahiʻai o Kansas, ka mea i koho ʻia no Monsanto Co. a me nā mea pāʻani ʻē aʻe a me nā mea kanu Big Ag i ka makahiki 2014 i ka wā i ʻōwili ʻia ai ka ʻoihana pekelala e kāpae i nā mokuʻāina mai ke kauoha ʻana i ka lepili ʻana i nā meaʻai genetically modified. Ua hoʻolauna ʻo Pompeo i ke kānāwai "Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act" i ʻApelila o kēlā makahiki me ka manaʻo e hoʻokahuli i nā bila ma kahi o ʻelua mau mokuʻāina he ʻumikūmālua.

Ua kapa ʻia ʻo Trump ʻO Myron Ebell, Luna Hoʻokele o ka Center for Energy and Environment ma ka hoʻokūkū ʻoihana Institute, e alakaʻi i nā hana hoʻololi i ka Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ʻO kēlā nūhou hauʻoli no ka ʻoihana mahiʻai no ka mea aia ʻo Ebell he peahi nui o nā pesticides.ʻO kāna hui SAFEChemicalPolicy.org hoʻokūkū ka pūnaewele i ka palekana a me nā pono o nā kemika i hoʻohana ʻia i ka mahiʻai a me nā wahi ʻē aʻe, a me nā noiʻi hōʻemi e hōʻike nei i ka hōʻino.
