You Can Help Save The Bees
Early in December we reported on an EPA document unearthed by Pesticide Action Network North America and Beyond Pesticides that shows the EPA knows full well what is causing Colony Collapse Disorder of bees. The culprit is pesticides known as neonicotinoids including imidacloprid and clothianidin.
PANNA is asking anyone concerned about this subject to sign a petition demanding that the EPA take clothianidin off the market: http://www.change.org/pesticide_action_network_north_america/petitions/view/pull_bayers_bee-killing_pesticide_now. As of this morning, only 234 people have signed the petition. We can do better than that! Signees thus far have been from all over the world.
Meanwhile, the EPA is engaging in blatant spin control and siding with Bayer, the manufacturer of clothianidin. Here is a cogent review of the situation from Change.org: http://food.change.org/blog/view/epa_defends_approval_of_bayers_bee-killing_pesticide.
