It is a bit more complicated than merely stating that the EU has deemed Glyphosate safe.

There had been calls; especially from UK Conservatives for a 15 year extension of the Glyphosate licence in Europe. The EU only allowed an extra 5 years, which expires in 2022.

Farmers were up in arms about the potential loss of Glyphosate as a resource. Because of course their profits are far more important than the health of our nation.

Tory MEP Ashley Fox moaned that the shorter extension "simply prolongs the uncertainty for our farmers, who are being badly let down. They cannot plan for the future without long term assurances about the availability of substances they rely on."

Sadly it is the UK government who have been complicit in the continued use of the product. Many EU countries voted against its continued use. They are planning to ban the use of this product earlier than the 2022 deadline.

Earlier this year, France banned it outright. Which means regardless of what the EU might have decided (supported by the UK), a country can still control its own agriculture and safety of its citizens.

I was posting tongue in cheek. I think this snippet is open to debate:

Without glyphosate, farmers would need to rely on plowing (or what is known as tillage), a weed control technique that turns over the soil. Tillage typically requires the use of heavy farm machinery which increases fuel consumption and causes soil disruption, both of which release greenhouse gases, like CO2, that contribute to climate change. Disrupting the soil can also cause erosion, allowing vital nutrients to be washed away with the soil. Glyphosate-based herbicides enable farmers to control weeds with little or no tillage, which dramatically reduces the carbon footprint and helps farmers maintain healthier soil.

Reducing tillage can diminish soil erosion by up to 90 percent and, in 2014 alone, reduced carbon emissions by an amount equivalent to removing nearly 2 million cars from the road.

Mac

I'm against the use of the stuff.

But you can't blame the EU, without accepting the complicity of the UK government.

Which is like saying that even if we were not part of the EU; we would still be choosing to use the stuff.

This is because of the farming lobby and the Conservative integration into that lobby.

Like I said, member states like France have already made their own decision to ban the stuff. We haven't...
