Mike Papantonio and Trial Magazines Editor Farron Cousins discuss break down the continued export of dangerous pesticides from the U.S. to developing countries. Despite being banned by the EPA, these spray-based chemicals kill nearly 350,000 people a year. Also, U.S. energy officials re-brand American fossil fuels as “freedom gas” in a bid for expanded influence in the global oil trade.
Then, RT correspondent Brigida Santos walks us through the ongoing environmental fiasco with Carnival Cruise Lines, who is now being fined $20 million for again violating their probation set in 2017 for illegally dumping oil and toxic waste into the ocean. This in addition to the $40 million Carnival was ordered to pay in their 2017 settlement.
Plus, legal journalist Mollye Barrows dives into the case of former school resource officer Scot Peterson, and whether his failure to intervene in the February 2018 mass shooting, which killed 17 students and staff, is in fact criminally culpable.
