WE NEED TO SPREAD THE WORD IN THE EASTERN HEMISPHERE!!
So people are STILL signing it…we’re up to almost 830,000 people (about 10,000 people per hour are signing it)!….but ALL the signers are in the Western Hemisphere (Europe, Canada, USA, Central and South America)…nobody in India, China, Russia, Japan, Africa, Hawaii or the Middle East.
If we could just get ONE person in each of those countries and/or areas, we might be able to get it to go viral throughout their area.
My question: Do you know anyone in any of those countries you could send it to, that might sign and reblog it?
Here’s the link to sign (or just watch the scroll!), if you are so inclined:
Please let me know if you can help out in this way.
P.S. There is NOTHING more important than the SURVIVAL of LIVING BEINGS on EARTH, please do your part.
P.P.S. I know, it’s annoying, all this activism I demand, I will not apologize…we ALL should be activists, if we want to have a healthy world to leave to our ancestors.
I mean, really. I’m very concerned. Aren’t you?
Please take less than five minutes to Sign the Petition to the EPA to ban clothianidin, and SAVE THE BEES!
Scientists have been scrambling to understand the crisis — termed Colony Collapse Disorder — but have yet to find a single, definitive cause. There are likely multiple interacting causes, and mounting evidence suggests that one widely used class of pesticides may be a critical factor.
One such chemical, called clothianidin, is produced by the German corporation Bayer CropScience. It is used as a treatment on crop seeds, including corn and canola, and works by expressing itself in the plants’ pollen and nectar. Not coincidentally, these are honey bees’ favorite sources of food.
Shockingly, no major independent study has verified the safety of this pesticide. While clothianidin has been used on corn — the largest crop in the U.S. — since 2003, it was officially approved by the Environmental Protection Agency last year on the basis of a single study, conducted by Bayer. However, recently leaked documents show that the study was actually debunked by the agency’s own scientists, so the pesticide was effectively approved with no scientific backing.
European countries that have banned this chemical have seen rapid re-growth of their bee communities.
I really hope somebody will reblog this - what could be more important than our own survival - that’s what’s at stake.
LOSING THE BEES IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN TUMBLR!!!
If you have no food, you will die. You will not care about Tumblr if you are starving to death, or fighting with others for food. Really, really.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
And all it takes to fix the problem is getting the EPA to ban this one chemical. And if this story gets picked up by the Mainstream Media, and there is enough pressure put upon the EPA, they will have to capitulate and ban this chemical.
European nations that have banned clothianidin have witnessed rapid regrowth of their bee communities. So there is hope that the bees can survive, but not if this chemical continues to blanket America.
I don’t know what more I can do, as one person, than put this information out there and hope that somebody with more followers than I have, picks up on this CRUCIAL STORY and deems it worthy of a reblog.
Does anybody care?
