'Tell Gov. Brown: Ban the dangerous pesticide chlorpyrifos!':

'Trumpís EPA is refusing to ban a commonly-used pesticide thatís known to damage brain development in children and is unsafe at any level. Chlorpyrifos is sprayed on fruits and vegetables like strawberries, broccoli, apples, and oranges. It gets absorbed into the food -- peeling or washing wonít get rid of it.

In 2015, the EPA announced that after years of study, it couldnít guarantee the safety of chlorpyrifos, and recommended banning it. Then Trump came into office and put Scott Pruitt -- a climate change denier and enemy of environmental regulation -- in charge of the EPA. Now the EPA is just ignoring its own findings and refusing to ban this dangerous chemical.

We may not be able to influence Trumpís EPA, but we can get this chemical banned in California. This would have a huge impact -- the state grows two thirds of the countryís fruit and nuts, and a third of our vegetables. California uses about 20% of the nation's chlorpyrifos, meaning that if we can ban it here we can put a real dent in the national market for this dangerous poison.

California Governor Jerry Brown can order the California Department of Pesticide Regulation to ban this chemical -- but he needs to hear from more of the public. Gov. Brown is considering his environmental legacy, and he's promised to resist the Trump administration. Ask him to ban chlorpyrifos now to help protect consumers, farmworkers, and communities around the nation......'
