momo33me [Feb. 21 2015]: While some of us were playing in the snow, others used the cover of the storm to go out and destroy olive trees that sustain Palestinian farmers in the Southern Hebron Hills. Local residents discovered some 24 olive trees severely vandalized this morning. The residents, who suspect settlers, informed the Israeli “Shai” police force, which inspected the scene and launched an investigation. If past experience is anything to go by, the investigation will fail to bring the offenders to justice.

Santa Fe Province, which is Argentina’s number one producer of cereals, forbids the use of pesticides less than 500 meters from populated areas. However, AP uncovered evidence that toxic chemicals were used as little as 30 meters from people’s homes. ... studies show that cancer rates in the province are two to four times higher than the rest of the country, while in the neighboring province of Chaco birth defects have quadrupled since the introduction of biotechnology in the agricultural industry around a decade ago. Researchers also found high rates of thyroid disorders and chronic respiratory illness in Santa Fe.

In addition, AP found that Argentine farmers use about 4.5 pounds of pesticide concentrate per acre, which is over double the amount used in the US.
