Namuhla, uCarey Gillam, owayeyintatheli yeReuters futhi esengumqondisi ocwaningweni wamanje we-US Right to Know, wethule incwadi yakhe entsha, I-Whitewash: Indaba Yombulali Wokhula, Umdlavuza Nenkohlakalo Yesayensi (Island Press), uphenyo olunzima mayelana ne-pesticide enkabeni ye-maelstrom yokulawula nesemthethweni zombili izinhlangothi ze-Atlantic.

Kusasa, uGillam uzovela njengochwepheshe omenyiwe phambi kwamalungu ePhalamende laseYurophu e ukulalelwa kwekomidi ngokuhlanganyela ukuxoxa ngemizamo kaMonsanto yokusebenzisa isayensi nokuhlolwa kokulawulwa ku-glyphosate.

AmaGillam ibhuku futhi ubufakazi kusekelwe eminyakeni engu-20 yocwaningo kanye nemibhalo eminingi yezimboni echaza amaphethini enkohliso azungeze i-flagship killer killer Roundup kanye nesithako sayo esisebenzayo i-glyphosate, nemithelela kubantu nakwimvelo.

Ngokuvumelana ne Abashicileli Weekly, "UGillam ngobuchwepheshe uhlanganisa ingxabano lapho ukungaboni kahle kwezinkampani kuhlangana nezindaba zezempilo yomphakathi kanye nemvelo." Kirkus Izibuyekezo izingcingo I-Whitewash "Indaba eshaya kanzima, evula amehlo," kanye "nempikiswano enamandla yendawo yezomthetho ebeka izintshisekelo zomphakathi ngaphezu kwenzuzo yezinkampani."

As I-Whitewash imininingwane, i-glyphosate iyisayensi yezolimo esetshenziswa kakhulu emlandweni — isibulala-zinambuzane esigcwele kakhulu emoyeni wethu, emanzini, ekudleni kwethu, nasemizimbeni yethu uqobo. Sekungamashumi eminyaka kunconywa njengamakhemikhali “aphephe ngokwanele ukuthi angaphuzwa,” kepha iqembu elikhulayo locwaningo lwesayensi libopha i-glyphosate kuma-cancer kanye nezinye izinsongo zezempilo nezemvelo.

I-Whitewash ihlola izimangalo ezisemthethweni zezinkulungwane zabantu baseMelika abathi iRoundup idale umdlavuza wabo, futhi idalula ithonya elinamandla lomkhakha wezinkulungwane zamarandi osesebenze amashumi eminyaka ukugcina abathengi besebumnyameni nabalawulayo behlola. Le ncwadi iveza ukuthi ithonya lezepolitiki selisebenze kanjani iminyaka ezinhlanganweni ezilawulayo ngenkathi liphinde laveza amaqiniso angenakuphikisa ngamazinga e-glyphosate namanye ama-pesticides atholakala kakhulu emikhiqizweni yethu yokudla.

I-Whitewash kucacisa ukuthi eminyakeni engama-55 ngemuva kokuthi uRachel Carson noSilent Spring bevuse umhlaba ezingozini zokusetshenziswa kwezibulala-zinambuzane ezingavinjelwe, sehlulekile ukulalela izixwayiso zakhe.
