    Default Beekeepers suing EPA

    A group of beekeepers and environmentalists announced today that they are suing the Environmental Protection Agency in an effort to curb the use of insecticides they say are decimating bee populations and putting our nation’s food supply in jeopardy.

    The four beekeepers and five environmental and consumer groups involved in the lawsuit, including the Pesticide Action Network, Center for Food Safety and Beyond Pesticides, say the link between neonicotinoids—a nicotine-like class of pesticides that include clothianidin and thiamethoxam—and bee die offs is crystal clear. And they claim the EPA acted outside the law when it allowed for “conditional registration” of their use. Syngenta and Bayer Crop Science are the primary manufacturers of clothianidin and thiamethoxam.

    I got the same notification from "Catch the Buzz".

    I wish them luck. They are taking on a bureaucracy that is backed by Monsanto.

    Maybe they should get their facts straight and ally themselves with beekeepers that don't have a lot of baggage and integrity issues. All it does is draw attention for the wrong reasons, serving as a distraction from real issues and facts.
