I disagree with LM's contention that your argument is a straw-man, and I
believe you are right. Food safety concerns are driving the ag chemical
industry toward safe, well-targeted pesticides. Many are clearly safer than
classic natural products like rotenone. But I do think he has a point about
how much regard organic adherents have for rational arguments. I don't
believe that the driver in this movement is really safety, but a desire to
cohere to natural law. The food safety issue is more of a tool to incite to
action the masses, who don't care that much about natural law (or just
incite them to buy organic).
