The Frog Scientist and the Atrazine Controversy

The controversy over the safety of the pesticide atrazine (the most commonly used agricultural chemical in the U.S.) continues. Global News has a new report on the debate that features Dr. Tyrone Hayes, the subject of the Scientists in the Field title THE FROG SCIENTIST. Teachers and parents may want to pair THE FROG SCIENTIST with this follow-up video to spark a debate about environmental health, public policy, and what one person can or should do when confronting powerful interests.
