Call for Action: Ban the Use of Methyl Iodide!

The public has until June 29th to state its opposition to use of Methyl Iodide as a pesticde in CA. The EPA approved its use in 2007, even after 50 scientists, 5 of them Nobel Laureates, advised against its use.
Methyl iodide is so reliably carcinogenic that it's used in the lab to cause cancer. Scientists say it "cannot be used safely," yet Gov. Schwarzennegger has pushed its approval. We have until the end of June to register public outrage.
How can you help?:
1) Call the Governor & demand that methyl iodide not be approved for use in California: (916) 445-2841
2) Comment by email: mei_comments@cdpr.ca.gov
3) Sign an online petition and get more information:
