i genuinly cannot get my head round this.
bees and pollinating insects are well to put it lightly the first step on our eco/food chain. without them were well toast.
we cannot pollinate all these plants ourselves.
seriously what does this gain the epa ?
or bayer for that matter. a quik buck at the expense of the human race.
there is no profit worth that cost.
i consider myself to be quite knowlagable on plants and genral horticulture and this has rocked me to my foundations.
can any one tell me if the uk is using this chemical?
bee population decline is an almost globlal problem. and one of the biggest problems we as a flowering/polinating plant producing speices face.
id like to see a list of countrys that use this or simmelar pesticides and compare it with the records of bee population drop in those corisponding
ok im officaly freaked out. why would an organisation in place to stop such catastrophic mistakes happening do this. it cant just be money if we all
die off there isnt gonna be money. there would be global panic . violence and ultimatly chaos if our "core" crops started to fail.
the usa has one of the largest stores of corn and grain in the world. its used world over for humanitarian relife when thers a disaster or famine.
another question are all crops being sprayed with this? is that crop then going into the populace or being exported? is it damaging to humans via the
can anyone say population controll. if this damages humans and the crop is then exported to third world dissaster zones well need i say more.
i may have rammbled a little there sorry folks my mind was racing with what ifs and i just went with it
genuinly a shockng report this has to be stopped asap. there are natural ways to defend against pests without the use of damaging chemicals . but
there is no profit in something the farmer can produce himself is there.
on last question do farmers have the choice on whether they have this substance placed on there crops or are they told his is on ur seed and will be
sprayed (or otherwise be put) upon your crop.?
there real is something wrong with this palnet and us as a spieces. mayby its better we are wiped out before we spread like a cancer throught hte
solar system and destroy countless other worlds.
im loosing faith.
