Thank you for adding your voice! We're fighting to protect bees and other pollinators from toxic neonic pesticides - the most widely used pesticides in the world. We're up against powerful companies that profit from the use of these poisons. They are pulling out all the stops to prevent federal action to protect bees.

But victories have already been won in Europe and we can win here too. We just need the support of people like you.

It didn't take this much effort to get DDT banned! What is wrong with people? The almighty dollar is reigning supreme and we will starve, waiting for this Do-Nothing, Obstructionist government to do something.
I can remember when we used to see the mosquito-spraying trucks when I was very small. The stuff used then was a carcinogen and it was banned. What do we have to do to get this stopped?

No chemical of any type should be allowed to be used on any basis until exhaustive measures to ensure its' safety in every possible case, and that's the opinion of this former ChemEng major.
