A Fed Judge thwarted the Will of the People on Kaua'i.. I hate the MOFO. I moved to the other side of the Island to get away from their relentless spraying of poisonous roundup on the West side.

Federal Judge: Kauai's GMO Law Is Invalid

HONOLULU (AP) — A Kauai County law requiring companies to disclose their use of pesticides and genetically modified crops is invalid, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favor of four seed companies seeking to stop Kauai's new law from going into effect in October.

Syngenta Seeds, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics Inc., doing business as Dow AgroSciences, and BASF Plant Sciences sued for a permanent injunction, arguing the ordinance unfairly targets their industry.

Kurren's ruling agrees that the ordinance is pre-empted by state law. The judge's ruling stops the county from enforcing the ordinance.

"I'm disappointed but that's the judge's option," said Paul Achitoff, an Earthjustice attorney who helped defend the law on behalf of intervening community groups. "I think the consequences for the people of Kauai, in particular, and throughout the state are very unfortunate."



From your link.. mahalo marmar

"One final comment on the climate-denier talking point. How ironic that Enright and the biotech industry would pretend to side with the scientists sounding the alarm on global warming—when the largest contributor to global warming is industrial agriculture, with its GMO monoculture crops. Anyone serious about global warming knows that our best hope is to ditch our chemical-intensive, soil-destroying industrial agriculture and replace it with organic, regenerative farming practices that restore the soil's ability to capture carbon."

The gmos are so purposely obtuse

Mahalo 1StrongBlackMan!.. No, "party loyalty" from me whatsoever.. I couldn't care less..

it's about the Environment, and yes the dreaded SCOTUS, Health Care, the Poor(which is a very targeted self interest for me.. and everyone in that situation), Social Security, LGBT, and Voting Rights!, Oh, did I mention the Environment of our Planet?

As I said in my previous post thanking President Obama for being there for us and standing

against teabaggers4hate and other enemies who have nothing but cheap pot shots.. they both studiously avoid acknowledging any positive Progress Obama has made.

That would not jive with their agenda.. a beaut from the link today..

President Barack Obama is given a tour of solar panels on the roof of the Department of Energy (DOE). With President Obama (L-R) are DOE HQ Energy Manager Eric Haukdal, DOE Deputy Secretary Liz Sherwood and Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of Energy Kate Brandt

smack! G'night, she~

They are such a beautiful couple.. glowing from the inside, she~ One thing the President was up

to today.. Our Planet's Environment..with his EO Pen, again!

President Barack Obama signs an Executive Order, titled “Planning for Sustainability in the Next Decade,” which will cut the Federal Government’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 40 percent over the next decade from 2008 levels, in the Oval Office. Behind President Obama are senior advisor Brian Dreese and Senior Advisor at the U.S. Department of Energy Kate Brandt


Thank you, she.. what a gif!

"Mr President. Thank you for being the sane rudder that has led us through uncharted water."

Indeed! Thank you, President Obama for all you've done for us over the years since you were voted into Office. We've been so fortunate to have you fighting against the insanity that is AKA/the US teaparty4hate, and the myriad of other enemies, that give you no credit for anything but, are so quick to jump on with their ignorant cheap shots.

"There is no rhyme or reason. There is only the chilling reminder that we live precariously and die

randomly, and that there is honor in facing each day with purpose and grace."
