Let’s hope this doesn’t get lost in the noise of the moment

Monsanto was well aware that its “Roundup 2.0” chemical/seed system, known as Dicamba, would be a disaster for farmers — and soil and anything within the vicinity (as Dicamba get airborne awfully easily).

I wrote about this issue in my second novel and I knew back then that this type of information would leak out — I wish it had much earlier — but better later than never.

I grew up near Monsanto and for many many years was ignorant about the company — though the fact that the campus is built like a fortress should have been a clue.

Anyway, there’s no joy in seeing the company come under fire. Because nobody really wins in the end. The chemicals will be in the soil, our food, our bodies for years to come.
