How hypocritical of Dow to do this...

Having Dow chemical involved is like Monsanto brainwashing folks about GE foods being safe when they made agent orange years ago.

Also Coke is buying up water supplies to privatize that in other countries.

And thanks Gore the opportunist for pushing those damn spiral "energy saver" light bulbs made in China that have a dangerous amount of mercury powder in them. People are warned to evacuate a room if those break open.
