Some thoughts on methyl bromide 

Pismo Beach

I thought you did a balanced job with your “Chemical warfare” article (Dec. 9). That’s a rare talent these days. I would be really very interested to learn what quotes you get from talking to those who campaigned against methyl bromide for the past decade or more.

Do they understand that they have escalated the issue? Do readers in general understand that political and regulatory pressure on the more effective chemicals will lead to softer chems allowable for use at higher rates? Do they also realize that same pressure on farming is exactly what results in consolidation of businesses and the enlargement of farming operations?

Just some thoughts. Thanks.
