The Trump Administration recently removed a ban on Dihydrogen Monoxide! We now face a dystopia that our children may not survive - we must act immediately to reinstate the ban!

Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage.
 
Dihydrogen monoxide: 
• is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain. 
• contributes to the "greenhouse effect." 
• may cause severe burns. 
• contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape. 
• accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals. 
• may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes 
• has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients. 

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide will now be allowed to be used:
• as an industrial solvent and coolant. 
• in nuclear power plants. 
• in the production of styrofoam. 
• as a fire retardant. 
• in many forms of cruel animal research. 
• in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical. 
• as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products. 

Companies will begin dumping waste with harmful DHMO into rivers and the ocean and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is now legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it!

The ban on production, distribution and use of this damaging chemical was lifted due to its "importance to the economic health of this nation." We as a nation can't allow this to happen. Again, please be a voice of reason and sign this petition!
