"Elinye inyathelo lokufikelela koko kukususa zonke iintlobo zenkxaso-mali kumashishini asebenza kwimizi-mveliso eyenzakalisa impilo."

Isifundo sinesihloko “UCoca-Cola wayibumba njani iNkongolo yaMazwe ngaMazwe malunga nokuSebenza koMzimba kunye neMpilo yoLuntu: Uhlalutyo lokuTshintshiselana nge-imeyile phakathi kuka-2012 no-2014. ” Kwabhalwa ngokubhaliweyo nguBenjamin Wood, ugqirha kunye nomgqatswa we-PhD kwiDyunivesithi yaseDeakin; UGary Ruskin; Kunye noNjingalwazi onxulumene naye uGary Sacks, naye osuka kwiDyunivesithi yaseDeakin.

Eli phepha lithi "ukuhanjiswa kolwazi lwenzululwazi kwiinkomfa zesayensi kufuneka kukhuselwe ngcono kwiindlela ezifihlakeleyo nezingabonakaliyo zempembelelo kumashishini. Umzekelo wokupheliswa kwenkxaso-mali kushishino lwecuba, njengoko kuchaziwe kwiNgqungquthela yeNkqubo-sikhokelo yoLawulo lweCuba, inokusetyenziswa nakwishishini lokutya. ”

UCoke kunye nabahlohli bazamile ukunciphisa ubungakanani be-Coke's 1.5 yezigidi zeedola kunye nendima yenkampani ekwenziweni kwe-GEBN. I-Coke ikwagcina "usapho lwe-imeyile" lwabahlohli bezempilo boluntu uCoke wayesebenzisa ukukhuthaza umdla wayo.

Olu phononongo lwalusekwe kumaxwebhu afunyenwe kusetyenziswa iirekhodi zikarhulumente nge-US Right to Know, uphando kwezempilo yoluntu kunye neqela labathengi.

"Eli libali lendlela uCoke asebenzise ngayo izifundiswa zempilo yoluntu ukwenza amaqhinga ecuba okutshaya ukukhusela ingeniso yawo," utshilo uGary Ruskin, umlawuli olawulayo we-US Right to Know. "Yindawo ephantsi kwimbali yezempilo yoluntu, kunye nesilumkiso malunga neengozi zokwamkelwa kwenkxaso-mali yeziko kwimisebenzi yezempilo yoluntu."

Ngokubhekisele kwinkxaso mali kaCoke, uJohn Peters, unjingalwazi kwezamayeza kwiYunivesithi yaseColorado, kuchazwe“Ngokuqinisekileyo kuza kufuneka siyixele le mali [yeCoca-Cola] ngaxa lithile. Eyona nto singathanda ukuyikhetha kukuba sibe nabanye abaxhasi ngaphambili… Kanye ngoku, sinabaxhasi ababini. Coca Cola kunye nomntu ongaziwayo ukuba unikele… .UJim [Hill] noSteve [Blair], ingaba iyabandakanya neeYunivesithi njengabaxhasi / ngabaxhasi abaphumeleleyo kuvavanyo lobuso obomvu? ”

Kwenye imeyile, UJohn Peters uyacacisa"Silawula eminye imibuzo ye-GEBN kwaye ngelixa sichaza iCoke njengomxhasi asifuni kuxela ukuba banike malini."

Eli phepha likwabonelela ngobunkokheli bukaCoke beqela elihlangeneyo labahlohli bezempilo bakhuphe uphando kunye nemiyalezo yobudlelwane noluntu exhasa uCoke. URhona Applebaum, owayengu-VP ngelo xesha kunye negosa eliyintloko lezenzululwazi kunye nezempilo eCoke, basebenzisa igama elithi “usapho lwe-imeyileUkuchaza inethiwekhi. Eli phepha lithi, “uCoca-Cola uxhase uthungelwano lwezifundo, njenge 'ntsapho ye-imeyile' ekhuthaza imiyalezo enxulumene nesicwangciso-qhinga sobudlelwane noluntu, kwaye ifuna ukuxhasa abo bahlohli ekuqhubeleni phambili imisebenzi yabo nokwakha amaziko abo ezempilo kunye namaziko onyango . ”

"Usapho lwe-imeyile" lweCoke ngumzekelo nje wakutshanje wentengiso eyoyikisayo eyunivesithi kunye nomsebenzi wezempilo, "utshilo uRuskin. "Abahlohli bezempilo yoluntu kusapho lwe-imeyile neCoke bafana nabaphuli mthetho kusapho lwe-imeyile kunye no-Al Capone."

Isifundo sanamhlanje kwiZempilo kaRhulumente Isondlo sithi "Ukuvavanya iinzame zikaCoca-Cola zokuphembelela impilo yoluntu 'ngamazwi abo': uhlalutyo lwee-imeyile zeCoca-Cola kunye nabahlohli bezempilo bakarhulumente abakhokela iGlobal Energy Balance Network."

Amaphepha eDicamba: amaXwebhu aphambili noHlahlelo

ushicilelo Imeyli isabelo Ukufuna

Amafama amaninzi ajikeleze i-United States amangalela i-Monsanto Co yangaphambili, ethengwe ngo-2018 ngu-Bayer AG, kunye ne-BASF ye-conglomerate kwiinzame zokwenza iinkampani ziphendule kwizigidi zeehektare zomonakalo wezityalo amafama athi kungenxa yokusetyenziswa ngokungekho mthethweni i ukhula lubulala ikhemikhali dicamba, Ukusetyenziswa okunyuswe ziinkampani.

Ityala lokuqala lokuya enkundleni lafaka phakathi iiFama zaseMissouri ezichaseneyo neenkampani kwaye kwaphumela kwisigwebo sezigidi ezingama-265 zeenkampani. Inkqubo ye- ijaji yanikezelwa $ 15 yezigidi kwimbuyekezo yomonakalo kunye ne- $ 250 yezigidi kumonakalo owohlwayayo.

Ityala lafakwa kwi Inkundla yeSithili sase-US kwiSithili seMpuma saseMissouri, kwiCandelo laseMpuma-mpuma, kwiDokhethi yaseKhaya # 1: 16-cv-00299-SNLJ. Abanini beeFama zeBader batyhola ukuba iinkampani zenza iyelenqe lokwenza "intlekele yendalo" eya kuthi inyanzele amafama ukuba athenge iimbewu ezinyamezelayo ze-dicamba. Amaxwebhu aphambili kwityala anokufunyanwa ngezantsi.

IOfisi ye-EPA yoMhloli-Jikelele (i-OIG) uceba ukuphanda Ukuvunywa kwe-arhente ye-dicamba herbicides entsha ukumisela ukuba i-EPA iyayithobela na imimiselo yomdibaniso kunye "nemigaqo yesayensi efanelekileyo" xa ibhalisa i-dicamba herbicides.

Intshukumo yaseburhulumenteni

Ngokwahlukeneyo, nge-3 kaJuni ka-2020. Inkundla yezibheno yase-US kwiSekethe yesithoba yathi i-Arhente yoKhuseleko lwezeNdalo yaphule umthetho ngokuvuma ukubulawa kwe-dicamba yi-Bayer, BASF kunye ne-Corteva Agrisciences kunye ukuchithile ukuvunywa kwe-arhente yamachiza abulala amayeza e-dicamba-based athandwayo ayenziwe ziikhemikhali ezintathu ezinkulu. Isigwebo senza ukuba amafama aqhubeke nokusebenzisa imveliso.

Kodwa i-EPA yasikhaba isigqibo senkundla, ikhupha isaziso nge-8 kaJuni yatsho Abalimi bangaqhubeka nokusebenzisa i-dicamba herbicides yeenkampani kude kube ngu-Julayi 31, ngaphandle kokuba inkundla ithe ngqo ngolungelelwano ukuba ayifuni kulibaziseka ukuphuma kwezo zicelo. Inkundla icaphule umonakalo owenziwe kukusetyenziswa kwe-dicamba kwihlobo elidlulileyo kwizigidi zeehektare zezityalo, iziqhamo kunye nemifuno kwilizwe lase-US.

NgoJuni 11, 2020, Abakhalazi ecaleni wafaka isindululo esingxamisekileyo efuna ukunyanzelisa umyalelo wenkundla kunye nokubamba i-EPA ngendelelo. Imibutho emininzi yasezifama ijoyine iCorteva, iBayer kunye ne-BASF ekuceleni inkundla ukuba inganyanzelisi ngokukhawuleza ukuthintelwa. Amaxwebhu afumaneka apha ngezantsi.

imvelaphi

I-Dicamba ibisoloko isetyenziswa ngamafama ukusukela ngee-1960s kodwa ngemida ethathela ingqalelo ukuthambeka kwemichiza ukukhukhumala kunye nokuhamba-hamba kude ukusuka apho wafafazwa khona. Xa iimveliso zokubulala ukhula ezithandwayo zeMonsanto, ezinje ngeRoundup, ziqala ukuphulukana nokusebenza ngenxa yokuxhathisa ukhula, iMonsanto yathatha isigqibo sokumilisela inkqubo yokulima i-dicamba efana nenkqubo yayo eyaziwayo yeRoundup Ready, eyayibhangqa iimbewu ezinyamezelayo ngeglyphosate kunye ne-glyphosate herbicides. Abalimi abathenga imbewu entsha ye-dicamba enganyamezeliyo yemfuza banokunyanga ngokulula ukhula olunenkani ngokutshiza amasimi onke nge-dicamba, nditsho nakwiinyanga ezikhulayo ezishushu, ngaphandle kokonakalisa izityalo zabo. IMonsanto uxele intsebenziswano kunye ne-BASF ngo-2011. Iinkampani zithe i-dicamba herbicides yabo iya kuba mbalwa kakhulu kwaye ingathambekisi kangako kuneendlela ezindala zedicamba.

I-Arhente yokuKhuselwa kokusiNgqongileyo yamkela ukusetyenziswa kweMonsanto's dicamba herbicide "XtendiMax" ngo-2016. I-BASF iphuhlise eyayo i-dicamba herbicide eyibiza ngokuba yi-Engenia. Zombini iXtendiMax kunye ne-Engenia zathengiswa okokuqala eMelika ngo-2017.

IMonsanto yaqala ukuthengisa imbewu yayo enganyamezelekiyo nge-dicamba kwi-2016, kwaye ibango eliphambili labamangali kukuba ukuthengisa imbewu ngaphambi kokuvunywa ngokusemthethweni kwe-dicamba herbicides kukhuthaze amafama ukuba atshize amasimi ngeendlela ezindala, ezinobunzima be-dicamba. Isimangalo esibi esithi: “Unobangela wentshabalalo kwizityalo zePlaintiffer Bader's yiMmangalelwa uMonsanto ukukhululwa ngabom nokungakhathali kwenkqubo yesityalo esineziphene - ezizezi iimbotyi zesoya iRoundup Ready 2 Xtend eguqulweyo kunye neBollgard II Xtend yembewu yomqhaphu (“ izilimo zeXtend ” - ngaphandle kokuhamba ne-dicamba herbicide.

Amafama athi iinkampani ziyazi kwaye zilindele ukuba imbewu entsha izakukhuthaza ukusetyenziswa gwenxa kwe-dicamba kangangokuba ukuhamba kuya konakalisa amasimi amafama angakhange ayithenge imbewu ye-dicamba eyinyamezelayo. Amafama atyhola ukuba oku kwakuyinxalenye yesikimu sokwandisa ukuthengiswa kwembewu ehambelana nemfuza yedicamba. Uninzi lutyhola ukwenziwa kwe-dicamba entsha ethengiswe ziinkampani nayo ikhukhumele kwaye ibangele ukonakala kwesityalo njengoko kwenziwe iinguqulelo ezindala.

Ngolwazi oluthe kratya malunga nedicamba, nceda ubone eyethu iphepha leenkcukacha ze-dicamba.
