The Great Glyphosate Rebellion continues at full pace in Europe as a new European Commission proposal for a temporary license extension of 18 months failed to receive support from the European Union members states.
The European Commission may now submit its temporary extension proposal to an appeal committee of political representatives of the 28 EU member states within one month.
A spokeswoman for the German Environment Ministry stated Monday; “There was no majority for glyphosate in the consultations today”.
The Commission’s plan had ignored scientific evidence that glyphosate is a probable cause of cancer and fails to limit human exposure to the herbicide, said Greenpeace.
