Backup For Statements On County Glyphosate Ban

BY DAVID HAMPTON

Editor,

It has come to my attention that I should provide additional backup for some of my statements in my letter to the editor ( https://losalamosreporter.com/2023/03/04/against-addition-of-exemptions-to-councils-ban-on-glyphosate-use-on-county-property/) regarding the County’s ban on glyphosate.

The first is a compilation of the whole process we have gone through the past few years:

The second shows an example of accidental or misapplication of glyphosate:

Both letters include links to presentations detailing additional information, including, if memory serves, additional examples of problematic applications, both in Los Alamos and White Rock. It would be difficult to compile the evidence posted over the years by people on Facebook, but it also exists. There are also probably some county records documenting additional occurrences.

Thank you!
