Fixing the EPA's Broken Pesticides Program

PEER and other organizations, like PPAN, have expressed serious concerns about the failure of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to protect people and the environment from the dangers of pesticides. This webinar will provide insider perspectives on the ongoing failures of the EPA to “protect scientists from political interference and ensure they can think, research, and speak freely to provide valuable information and insights to the American people.” This webinar will also highlight why now is the time to push for immediate changes in the EPA's pesticide programs and why we must also seek protections at the state and local levels because federal protections are not adequate. Presenter Bio Tim Whitehouse, Executive Director, PEER Tim has more than 25 years of experience working on a wide range of environmental issues with governments, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and community groups. His interest is in the intersection of science, policy, and the civil service. He believes in protecting employees who raise concerns about their workplace and in exposing undue influence on government for private gain. Previously, Tim was a senior attorney at the EPA and was head of the Law and Policy Program at the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation in Montreal, Canada. He has worked as a consultant for companies on environmental compliance issues, and with nonprofit organizations focusing on clean energy issues. Most recently, he was executive director of Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility, a health advocacy group working to address climate change, toxics pollution, and nuclear disarmament issues. He holds a JD and BA from Emory University and an MA from New York University.
