Democracy Now!

The ruling "vindicates years and years, decades of independent scientific work" studying Roundup, says journalist @careygillam. Gillam authored the book "Whitewash," on Monsanto's longstanding efforts to silence oppositional voices & scientific research about glyphosate. #DNlive
The court found that not only does Roundup cause cancer, but Monsanto acted with malice, says Brent Wisner. "This started 20 years ago. Monsanto has known that their product can cause cancer, and has gone out of its way to ignore it, and/or fight any science that suggests a link"
"His cancer, while he was spraying, had transformed from a relatively controllable type… to one that's essentially a death sentence. And the fact that Monsanto never called him back, the fact that they never warned him, deprived him of the ability to make an informed choice."
On-air now: We're speaking with attorney Brent Wisner of @baumhedlund, who represented school groundskeeper Dewayne Lee Johnson against Monsanto. Johnson developed cancer after using the Roundup weed killer, which contains glyphosate. Doctors say he is unlikely to live past 2020.

Former @Interior official @jclement4maine says people in the U.S. want the government to address climate change directly, not scapegoat environmentalists: "Most Americans get it, that climate change is no longer something we can just wish away with this administration."
Reporter @bjlefebvre of @politico notes Ryan Zinke has been the subject of investigations "almost from the start" at the Interior Department, with 14 investigations into misconduct. It "almost averages out one to two per month"
Sallie Holmes interrupted Zinke's speech with a question about climate change worsening wildfires across the Western U.S., and asked why @Interior has cut its fire budget: "The majority of Americans care about our public lands… We really only want a seat at the table." #DNlive
