Save Our Bees: Tell Congress to Support the Saving America's Pollinators Act (Sign Please)

Green Lifestyle  (tags: Bees, neonicotinoids )

- 1332 days ago -
Honeybees and other pollinators are suffering serious declines. Thankfully, a bill in Congress aims to protect them from the use of harmful pesticides. Tell your representative to support the Saving America's Pollinators Act and protect our bees!

The Government ends pesticide in some Wildlife Refuges

Have you heard the buzz? The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently announced plans to phase out the use of neonicotinoid insecticides in wildlife refuges in the Pacific Region, including Hawaii and other Pacific Islands, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. FWS is the first government agency to restrict neonicotinoid use in the United States.

This is a huge step in the right direction, but there’s still so much left to do! Join Beyond Pesticides, Center for Food Safety, and Pesticide Action Network North America in telling Congress to support the Saving America’s Pollinators Act, which will suspend the use of neonicotinoids until a full review of their environmental impact has been completed.

People need to realize, before it is too late, that bees are so much more, so very much more than bugs that make honey. Our lives depend on them and that is not hyperbole in the least. They are critical to us humans and us humans are killing them off. S&N

I signed, and have only seen two bees. Later I'm going to write an article and when its published, I'll come back and post the link. Must do some research on it before writing the article, hopeful more will check it out and sign. Without bees, flowers can't pollinate and my sunflowers done poorly this year and I use the seeds to feeds about 20 or squirrels daily and 100 or more birds on a daily basics, plus what food I buy for them to eat.

I watched a TED talk about bees last night. The expert, who has been studying bees for years, said that each of us can help bees rebound by PLANTING ORGANIC FLOWERS. She actually said it was two things we can all do to help - plant flowers for bees to be able to eat; don't use pesticides. So choose some packets of flower seeds to plant, share and enjoy. Bzzzzzz, bzzzz, bzz

Human beings are supposedly the smartest beings in the animal kingdom but common sense is not a flower that grows in everyone's garden. More the pity because it seems some, need to have things reach dire straits before they see the writing on the wall or any flicker of enlightenment in their brains. Unless it has $ signs in front of it, then they may take note. So lets hope the government representatives who represent us in our many and various countries pull their fingers out and start taking the plight of bees, wolves, whales and all other endangered animal, reptile and bird beings seriously and do something for the planet with out some big powerful corporations flashing big bucks to pollute with gay abandon because their money is supposedly good for the economy.
