EPA Must Fulfill its Duties (says a Federal Judge)

In May, a federal court ordered the EPA to study 75 pesticides and their effects on endangered species within the next 5 years, and to limit their use in wildlife areas until the evaluation is completed. Did you know that 10 million pounds of pesticides are used in the San Francisco Bay Area every year? And that’s only the amount that gets reported. The Center for Biological Diversity, which filed the lawsuit that forced this decision, said, “These pesticide-use restrictions will protect some of the Bay Area’s most vulnerable wildlife from inappropriate use of toxic pesticides.”
