Need to cut pollution and reduce chemical fertilizer use.

I have noticed a significant reduction in wildflowers. Where I come from, our weather has a great deal to do with it. Whatever the culprit may be, I am saddened to not have as many beautiful flowers to enjoy!

I love meadows full of wild flowers, it would be a real shame if I never saw one again!

It's a beautiful photo - we have to do all we can to make sure our grandchildren can still see such sights

This is terrible news. I don't think we even realize how much closer to total devastation we actually are. New reports keep coming out that things are worse than originally thought. This is very disturbing to me. Thanks Cal.
