Herbicides and Human Rights – Carol Van Strum

Coast Range Radio interviews troublemaker and writer Carol Van Strum. Carol has spent decades documenting and fighting the atrocities perpetrated on the rural communities of the Pacific Northwest through wanton pesticide use by massive chemical corporations, the timber industry and the federal government. Carol is the recipient of the David Brower Lifetime Achievement Award. She is the author of A Bitter Fog: Herbicides and Human RightsNo Margin of SafetyThe Oreo File and other works. Carol was also instrumental to the creation of the Poison Papers.

In 2017, her work was instrumental in Lincoln County’s voter-approved first ever ban of aerial pesticide spraying in the nation. The ban was overturned, and that decision is being appealed. Carol is featured in the new documentary film, The People vs. Agent Orange. To find local screenings and to learn about the film visit
