The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finally taken some action to restrict the use of pesticides that are believed to be causing serious declines in pollinators, but environmentalists are arguing the agency still needs to do more.

About effing time! Thanks for sharing, Cal. Here's hoping the EPA manages to ban pesticide use before it kills all life on Earth.

Not only the EPA moves ....

In Europe things are likely to change after this publication (dated 2015 04 08):

It is a start but I'll believe it when I see it actually happening. They need to ban all these chemicals and put the chemical giants out of business.
