Save the Frogs rally demands EPA ban Atrazine

 
The herbicide Atrazine, when used in cornfields, increases the yield by about 1%. On the other hand, enough is applied to frogs by runoff and pollution to turn many male frogs into sterile females, thus reducing their reproductive yield to zero. On April 29, a group known simply as Save the Frogs showed up at the EPA demanding that Atrazine be banned. Video of the Save the Frogs Rally
