The EPA badly needs to be booted and restaffed ,all they care about is toxic chemicals,lies and bending over to their green god..I wouldn't even take an aspirin from bayer. I suppose a lot don't, so EPA buys a batch with our taxes and spray it in the air for us, and to and exterminate bees who are smart and of the most helpful to promoting plant life in our ecosystem. No doubt bee's are more helpful than EPA and bayer are! Clothianidin is deadly poison and banned in bayers own home country....Not in the USA tho.EPA is the absolute opposite of it's name.
Thanks for posting Simone.

I think that before any of these pesticides are approved, the people who create them should have to live with them 24/7 for a few years and then we would know how safe they are. Noted and signed with thanks...

The EPA certainly doesn't protect anything but themselves. I reckon the Repugs have such a grip on them, they're kow-towing like crazy to them. Somebody ought to clean them out and get people in there who really CARE about the environment.

it's TIME to err on the side of our bees instead of pure greed. They pollinate most of our food supply. This is a very greedy and dangerous game the chemical companies and the EPA are playing.

I have heard experts discussing this on the radio, and they KNOW what they are talking about! Bayer is a GERMAN company (It committed heinous atrocities during Nazi regime, so it has a long history of destructive practice for profit) Germany BANS this products. Why is US so backwards when it comes to NATURE over money? Life over possessions? Over cruelty?
 

Patrick Donovan (344)

The reason for a dangerous poison to be used in the US is the same reason for most of the problems: greed on the part of the wealthy and those who want to be no matter what the cost.

Have any of these scientists thought of the long-term effects of this poison? Yes, they have because it's banned IN Germany as well as France and Italy etc... So we buy it and use it here. Brillient!
