White Atrazine and it's effects are not disputed, there are many more issues affecting frog populations than just this issue. The links between rapid declining frog numbers and Atrazine is not so well established. Other pollutants in the environment, damage to waterway ecosystems and climate change are having a vastly larger effect.

Perhaps true Lucas, but when you consider there are 18,000 other registered pesticides in the USA, you can imagine the overall threat from pesticides that amphibians face.

But Lucas, the use of atrazine still on Tasmanian forest plantations must be contributing much to waterway ecosystem damage in Tasmania.

Humans and frogs share half our DNA. If Atrazine has proven to be harmful to frogs, imagine what affect it's having on humans. For the sake of the world's remaining frog populations, and for the health of ourselves and our children, I urge the United States Environmental Protection Agency to place a federal ban on the sale and use of Atrazine.

I don't have much hope for the EPA since it's corrupt to the core and in the pockets of criminal corporations . Europe just implemented a continent wide ban on the neonicotinoids..the nerve agent pesticides that are killing off bees and pollinators..Europe came to their senses much to dismay of the terrorist poison corporations, Bayer, Sygenta, Dow and Monsanto, but of course the EPA in the US immediately declared they would not ban those nerve agent poisons, even though they know full well...

Without pollinators in the ecology that would also be the end of food crops but the EPA would murder all of America if it meant a short term profit for their circle of thugs.

I have also noticed frog decline. I got in touch with sfwd about this very problem That was 6 years ago. It takes forever for anything to get done on environment. It might be too late to save us or our planet. It saddens me what men have done to our planet. Makes me weep.

Ultimately there is no such thing as a "safe" pesticide. They are all toxins.
