Protecting our Pollinators
"Quietly, globally, billions of bees are dying, threatening our crops and food. But a global ban of one group of pesticides could save bees from extinction. Four European countries have begun banning these poisons, and some bee populations are recovering. But chemical companies are lobbying hard to keep all killer pesticides on the market. A global outcry now for a ban in the US and EU, where debate is raging, could provoke a total ban and a ripple effect around the world." --
Here are some links to a wide range of Bee - Questions & Answers, and Stories.
(Warning: some of these could include government partners with vested interests in corporate, pesticide-intensive agriculture)
"While pesticide industries blames the problem on viruses, parasites -- and just about anything but pesticides -- the bees continue to die, threatening our food and indeed the entire ecosystem. Unfortunately many news and government sources are tainted by industry bias, greenwash and money. It's up to all of us to pull together and save the the bees before it is too late."
