Scientists believe the pesticide clothianidin is at least partially to blame for the alarming rise in bee colony collapse — the sudden bee-die off which has claimed about 30% of the U.S. honey bee population each year since 2006.
But twice this year, the EPA has refused to step in. If we don’t convince the EPA to reconsider, it is not scheduled to review clothianidin again until 2018. By then it could be too late for the bees, and the one third of our food crops bees play a crucial role in pollinating.
The EPA is currently accepting public comments on its latest decision not to to declare bee die offs an emergency situation.
Now is a crucial moment to make our voices heard for the Bees.
Tell the EPA: Stop stalling. Ban the pesticide that’s killing bees:
I don’t know why I bother…posting links…hardly anybody pays attention. If I post a stupid political joke or cartoon it might get a few hundred re-blogs or likes, whereas, a post that really matters, like this one, concerned with “Human Survival” usually gets under a dozen. I don’t understand why more people don’t CARE.
Anyway, if you DO happen to care about survival of all living beings on our planet, please take into consideration that we rely on Bees to pollinate many of our foods, and we would seriously be fucked if we allow one damn greedy chemical company to obliterate all life on earth for their own profits.
So, do yourself a favor, it will take less than two minutes to sign this petition…
