The fact that C.E.O. Andrew Liveris is a close adviser to Donald Trump can’t hurt. Chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion are big Dow Chemical money-maker pesticides, with the company selling 5 million pounds of chlorpyrifos in the U.S. yearly, according to the AP. Dow has a small problem on its hands, and it’s not the fact that the pesticide was “originally derived from a nerve gas developed by Nazi Germany,” per the AP, though that’s certainly not great for marketing materials. It’s the fact that studies by federal scientists have found that chlorpyrifos, diazinon, and malathion are harmful to almost 1,800 “critically threatened or endangered species.” EPA will issue findings resulting in new limits on how and where the highly toxic pesticides can be used.
