Clothianidin EPA comments close Tuesday
Since 2006, U.S. honey bee populations have been in precipitous decline,
with some estimates suggesting losses as high as 30% per year. While
that's terrible, the problem is far greater than just the loss of a
species. Without bees, our food supply is in serious danger. Pollination
by honey bees is key in cultivating the crops that produce a full
one-third of our food.
A leaked memo suggests the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has
ignored the science linking the pesticide clothianidin to the bee die-off.
Now the EPA is considering whether to renew approval of clothianidin.
Submit a comment asking EPA to reject this dangers chemical that is
killing honey bees - hurry, the comment period closes on Tuesday:
We ALL need to make a statement here, please do it now.
Sorry that I only just found, at this late date.
Little time left/send it to all your BK friends
