Against Bee Killing

Against Bee Killing

You might want to follow me and take action in this.

This is a very important cause – I already posted about the dying bees before.
If you take the time to sign the request, you’ll be asked to eventually add your own words. I personally think that this is more powerful than just signing.
My text was this:
Thank you for considering my input.
“We all have been taught already in school how the ecological chains work in nature. Some elements – animals or plants – are less, other more important, however, none is unimportant. Nature has developed over billions of years to find a wonderful balance that we can admire every day – and that we’re destroying every day instead. Greediness, failure of knowledge, corruption, criminal acts, filtered information, regardlessness – the list of reasons is long, but greediness is always the reason on top of it. Bees are among the most important vectors to make nature’s balance keep going. Without bees, the ecological chain breaks down.”

The rest fo the text is for all the same:
(As a citizen concerned about our nation’s health and food security, I urge you to deny Dow AgroScience’s application to expand the registration of the bee-killing pesticide sulfoxaflor so that it can be sprayed on corn, alfalfa, oats, and several significant and widely grown crops.

Honeybees are dying at rates unprecedented in history, prompting the U.S. Department of Agriculture to warn that it is no longer confident in our ability to “meet the pollination demands of U.S. agricultural crops.” Rather than expand the number of crops that can be sprayed with highly toxic and systemic insecticides like sulfoxaflor, the EPA must take immediate steps to help bees recover. I join with other members of Earthjustice in calling for you to suspend the use of sulfoxaflor on all crops pending a thorough analysis of the impacts to bees and the many crops that depend on bees for pollination.)

Please consider doing this.
