The EPA should reverse registration of methyl iodide
This page (linked to below) describes the numerous problems associated with the highly toxic substance, methyl iodide. Even though EPA and external scientists argued against it, the agency approved methyl iodide for fumigation. This is bizarre and irresponsible behavior, yet again, from the Bush-controlled EPA.

A professional view of Green Chemistry for the general reader
Having worked in Green Chemistry since about 1990, I hope to offer comments that help you evaluate what is really good for the environment, what helps but could be better, and what is undesirable. This is my second blog- the first reviews fiction, but since I put some Green Chemistry there out of impatience, there are cross-references between the blogs. Comments are welcome and encouraged! Thanks, James K. Bashkin. © 2007-2010
