    Reminder Clothianidin EPA comments close Tuesday

    Dear Friend,

    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
    Thank's
    BM

    "Last year, CREDO delivered more than 200,000 petition signatures urging the EPA to ban clothianidin. Now that its approval is up for review, this is a crucial opportunity to protect bees.

    Tell the EPA: Cancel the approval of clothianidin. Submit a comment now."

    The EPA is about to respond, but if the agency doesn't actually act, it likely won't review Clothianidin again until 2018 — and by then it could be too late for the bees.
