REPEATING CDFA LBAM LIES OVER AND OVER AGAIN DOES NOT MAKE THEM TRUE.
LBAM IS NOT A DANGEROUS PEST. IT IS A SCAM FOR MONEY BY THE CDFA AND THE PRIVILEGED INSIDER PESTICIDE COMPANIES THAT CONTROL CDFA.
At first I thought that CDFA and USDA just didn't get the correct information and that these agriculture agencies had jumped through the wrong door as government agencies often do with our money.
But since they are reporting the same misinformation for numerous years now and still including LBAM as a dangerous pest when in fact it is an agricultural NON-ISSUE to growers, it is quite apparent that CDFA's policies are to (1) Grab as much of our tax money as they possibly can using false "Emergencies" when they think they can get away with it, and (2) to promote as much pesticide use as they can to serve their chemical company masters.
200 million pounds of pesticides applied every year in California is MORE than enough. That is 6 pounds each person per year, 1/2 pound per month for each pregnant lady, fetus, infant, child, teen, adult and senior. That is way more than even the amount of salt we eat.
CDFA has promoted pesticides in California so that agriculture lands are essentially saturated and can't take any more. So now CDFA is promoting additional pesticides beyond agriculture lands to spread them over our communities and into our forests to keep the pesticide sales growing.
CDFA is truly more dangerous to our children than the drug pushers hanging around the schools. We can try to teach our children to avoid the drug pushers, but no one can avoid the toxic chemicals that CDFA is pushing and now pushing them with fake "Green" labels pretending they are almost good for us, nearly the identical methods of the drug pushers.
Drug pushers catch one or two or a handful of our children and when they are caught they go to jail. The Executive management of CDFA are catching ALL of our children. And just because they have fancy offices to hide themselves from being seen on street corners, is no reason that these child chemical molester executives should not be tried and placed in the most uncomfortable prisons.
Here is a professor's press release revealing that the CDFA underestimated by over one million times the toxicity of a pesticide they aerially sprayed directly onto people in their community where they live and work and raise children. They sprayed them from airplanes from 500 feet high and told the people it was "Safe" so the people did not even know to run and get their kids out of there. http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/arti...
Regardless of the numerous FALSE reports of damage, there is NOT a single DOCUMENTED instance of damage from LBAM at any County Agricultural Office in the State of California.
ALL CDFA DAMAGE REPORTS ON LBAM WERE FALSE, ALL WERE LIES.
