In August 2018, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a ban on Chlorpyrifos.

EPA Response:

“EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said that the agency is reviewing the court decision. He also questioned data from [CCCEH] regarding the health effects of chlorpyrifos.”
“Even low to moderate levels of exposure to the insecticide chlorpyrifos during pregnancy may lead to long-term, potentially irreversible changes in the brain structure of the child.”

Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.
