It has long been posited on this website that the reason for environmentalist opposition to pesticides was due to their seeking to kill humans off by preventing the use of the herbicide in order to fend off insects from consuming crop yields. Now it seems environmentalists are contributing to the deaths of humans via another route that might be very fruitful for their de-population agenda: cocaine.
In an essay posted at Townhall, former US Representative Bob Barr has made a startling observation where he points out that environmentalists are aiding Colombian drug cartels. Greens are opposing the use of glyphosate (aka Round-Up) that was used as part of the United States’ Plan Colombia campaign to eradicate cocaine production by spraying coca fields in the South American country.
Two years ago, according to Barr, Colombia caved to pressure by the World Health Organization that was the result of environmentalist group lobbying. Colombia stopped spraying campaigns on coca fields used by drug cartels for manufacturing cocaine. Until two years ago glyphosate was used to destroy coca and other crop fields used in the cartel’s narcotic production. Environmentalists successfully convinced Colombia to stop their spraying based on the (now refuted) notion that using the herbicide causes cancer.
Consequently, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration, cocaine production and distribution has exploded. A year after realizing their mistake, Colombia re-visited the issue but chose ineffective measures rather than spraying coca fields with glyphosate. Worst of all, Barr says, the US government is not insisting that Colombia reinstate the spraying program.
Thanks to environmentalist influence at the United Nations that resulted in Colombia to stop spraying with glyphosate, the production and distribution of cocaine is at an all time high. This will mean more people’s lives destroyed by cocaine addiction or crimes related to it. If you or your loved one’s life is affected by cocaine addiction, you can thank the environmentalist groups that made it possible.
