Tell the EPA: Ban the pesticide that’s killing bees!

20 Jun
In the next week, the EPA is expected to issue a decision on the pesticide Clothianidin — which scientists believe is a major factor in the alarming decline in U.S honey bee populations, known as Colony Collapse Disorder

Since 2006, one third of U.S honey bee populations have been dying off. One third. Every year. That’s a terrible rate of species destruction on its own, but it’s also a serious threat to our food supply. Honey beesplay a crucial role by pollinating 71 of the 100 most common crops, which account for 90% of the world’s food supply. 

The EPA will be issuing a decision soon. If the agency doesn’t act, it won’t review Clothianidin again until 2018 — and by then it could be too late for the bees. 

I just signed a petition to the EPA, and I thought you would want to add your name, too.
