New Zealand: Contaminated Soil, Air, Water

“Unsustainable industrial and farming activities [have resulted] in chemical contamination of soil, air and water. Arsenic, copper, DDT, dieldrin and lead are the lethal legacy of decades of unsustainable agriculture. Successive governments have advocated for the use of toxic pesticides in New Zealand. [Administrator] Officials assured New Zealanders these pesticides were safe, even in the face of evidence that showed otherwise. Some persistent pesticides, like endosulphan, are still allowed, creating the contaminated sites of the future.” ~ Green Party of Aotearoa NZ
