Greens Give EPA 'a Swift Kick in the Butt'

"What we're challenging is EPA's inaction despite a body of evidence" that inert pesticide ingredients can be just as harmful as active ones, plaintiffs' attorney Yana Garcia told Courthouse News.
"Chemicals listed as inert are not inert," she said. "Consumers think the inert ingredients are water or other benign substances used to mix the chemicals, but many are carcinogenic and others have acute impacts and still others have impacts that are currently unknown."
