Methyl Iodide Permit Issued in SB County

One of the primary campaign of the Weston A. Price Foundation is 'non-toxic farming.  

Please read the upcoming use and danger of Methyl Iodide in Santa Barbara County and what you can do.

Methyl Iodide Permit Issued in SB County
Trish Damen-Stone/P2P subscriber & food safety advocate  

I got confirmation today that the SB County Ag Commissioner's office issued a permit to a farmer in North County (Guadalupe area) for application of toxic methyl iodide. There is really nothing stopping them from issuing permits elsewhere in the county. It will be another Ventura county and the fog over the city.

You may want to read about our own CA DPR expert scientist team testifying as to the dangers of methyl iodide and then having the DPR bureaucracy issuing the go ahead (see below links). I have contacted Salud Carbajal, 1st District County Supervisor, who is concerned about the pesticide issue in North County where farm workers and their families are being exposed.

Let your farm friends and others know about this and have them contact their assigned senators/reps/supervisors. They need to educate and voice their concern to their elected officials. Good luck from a senator standpoint. Looking at Strickland's website, his focus is bringing back the NFL to LA. Argh. The one link I found that had anything to do with humanistic causes was at the very bottom CA E3 (environment, economy and education). Low and behold, the link went no where. So, I hold very little hope for our representation from a senator standpoint.


South County - Assemblymember Das Williamsat: Although he is our assemblymember, the harm is taking place outside of his area. Proactively though, he should be contacted. I have given him the heads up. 
North County - (where the harm is taking place): Assemblymember K.H. "KATCHO"

County Supervisors:
Salud Carbajal (Carp, SummerlandMission Canyon and parts of SB)
