Greenpeace activists are demanding that Christine Todd Whitman, the new head of the agency, stop favoring dirty industry over scientific precaution. Since last fall, nearly 300 food products have been contaminated with StarLink corn. EPA approved StarLink only for animal feed but the agency has yet to enforce its rules against the company. Instead, Whitman plans to name Linda Fisher, former executive of the biotech industry giant Monsanto, as the Deputy Administrator of the EPA.
