a Q&A period on 10/23/07, Secretary of CDFA, A. G. Kawamura, and other state officials
revealed their spray schedule. After the November, 2007 pesticide aerial applications,
spraying will resume in March, 2008 and continue EVERY 30 DAYS FOR 9 MONTHS STRAIGHT!!
Then again in 2009, starting in March, biochemical pesticides will again
be sprayed on the human population EVERY 30 DAYS FOR 9 MONTHS STRAIGHT!! They
said that this will continue for two complete moth life cycles after the very
last moth is found. In other words, since they have previously admitted that the
efficacy of this method is unknown, these operations will continue indefinitely...
for years and years!!
The state officials were also asked if there has
been any crop damage documented at all so far in California due to the LBAM. After
whispering to each other for about 20-30 seconds, a sober answer was finally given.
And the answer was, "No".
And we're supposed to believe that this is deserving
of an "emergency" status?
