New Year is time to protect the Earth

jRF3AwR23cLNGXLNeIWar is one of the major enemies of our environment. Our Earth is being destroyed by war. War is waged with toxins like Agent Orange and dioxins, which have left several generations of Vietnamese children with horrible birth defects and American soldiers still suffering.
Now Agent Orange rears its ugly head in our American food system. Religious people everywhere long to protect and honor the Earth, make sure it continues to give life, not death. Consider this small article reprinted from the Veterans for Peace newsletter:
“The EPA has approved Dow Chemical’s new ‘Enlist Duo’ herbicide, which is a mixture of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup) and the very toxic 2, 4-D, a component of Agent Orange that has been linked to a number of illnesses including Parkinson’s disease and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This new herbicide is for genetically modified crops, replacing Roundup/glyphosate, because weeds are becoming resistant to Roundup after years of its heavy use on ‘Roundup Ready’ GMO crops. Now a stronger herbicide is required for these GMO crops, and what would be better than Agent Orange?
Please call President Obama at 202-456-1111 and remind him how much he likes Vietnam veterans and to show his appreciation by prohibiting this deadly toxin from ever being manufactured, stored, sold or implemented again.
The VA, by the way, does not treat vets for Agent Orange-related illnesses, which is something most Americans and possibly even the President are not aware of.”
