A historic ban on bee-killing neonics is being proposed in Europe — but the pesticide lobby and its political friends are desperately trying to stop it.
The new ban on bee-killing pesticides would go far beyond current protections, banning three deadly neonics from fields all across Europe. But a small group of politicians is trying to block it before EU member states even get to vote on the new regulations.
Meanwhile, a scathing new UN report called the idea that we need neonics to feed ourselves a “myth” perpetuated by “unethical” corporations like Bayer and Syngenta that have millions in profits riding on continued reliance on bee-killing pesticides. It’s high time for a global ban on these deadly pesticides.
I’ve taken action. Can you click here and add your voice to the call for a global ban on bee-killing pesticides too?
