I wonder how many people with neanderthal intellect are behind this injustice to nature.

Please Please everyone read this.

Many of us fought to have a ban in the Uk and Europe. We supposedly won. But the ban is a total sham.

The ‘ban’ doesn’t come into force until December. By then most if not all farmers will have purchased their chemical coated seeds for next year.

They are only banning 3 of the neonicotinoids. There are others, which will not be banned.

They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there...

They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there will continue to be residues on the land. And it is not known how long residues last for.

There is no ban on all the other insecticides, which may also be having a detrimental effect on all bees and other pollinating insects.

New studies show that not only are bees are being affected, but hoverflies and lacewings too. So the notion by many folk that there are other insects, which can go on pollinating, is false.

We have had the most amazing apple blossom this year, yet very few bees working it – one or two here and there. The same with comfrey, which would normally be humming with bumble bees. We in the Uk have had a very long winter, and still a cool spring. Indeed, the coldest spring in 50 years. This has undoubtedly has had a serious effect on bee populations of all kinds. Undoubtedly too, they have been weakened by chemicals.

Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So...

Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So what can we expect – dead bees, dead hoverflies, dead lacewings….. all for the sake of money and power.

The same people are pushing to ban all seeds that are not controlled by Monsanto and the other chemical industries, so that we have to use their genetically modified seeds, which will only grow by using their chemicals.

The same people who are trying to ban the use of homeopathy, herbs and other forms of natural healing, so that we are all hooked on to their drugs.

thank you all for your responses, i have only found them as only John's was fed back to me. I am a member of the Wedmore Green Group here in England, and we lean on our 'poly-tishons' (oh, a species of parrot!!!!!!!!). perhaps you have local pressure groups you can work with, or join to help the cause. Or even start one yourselves. Just a thought. You can look up our website and get ideas. i wish you all well. melvyn ps i will be happy to hear from you.

My mothers parents started a "honey farm" in the late 1800's or early 1900's in Oshkosh, WI. Berholtz Honey.... I believe my cousin still processes it. Honey is THE PERFECT FOOD! It NEVER spoils, even after 1000 years. It would be a true loss to the world!

Fully 1/3 of US commercial beehives -- more than 1 million colonies -- have disappeared in the past year alone. Please sign this petition asking EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to end the use of neonicotinoid pesticides before bees go extinct altogether.

thanks for th e invite to join, Paul, I signed this one a while back. Sounding Bowls are used with bees in some places, bees feel vibrations through their feet as they don't have ears. Sounding Bowls have remarkable healing effects also with human beings in a huge variety of situations and are used in top hosptials in the UK.

WHY IS OUR GOVERNMENT: EPA, AMA, FDA, ETC..........ALLOWING THIS? WE ARE ALL AWARE THAT ONE OF MONTSANTO'S BOARD MEMBER WAS ON ONE OF THESE HEADS OF GOVERNMENT AND HE MAY WELL STILL BE ON OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCY. PLEASE SPEAK UP AND LET OUR GOVERNMENT WITH DEEP POCKETS THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANY MORE. WE DEFINITELY NEED A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT HAS SCIENTSTS, PROFESSORS, AND EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT MEN AND WOMEN THAT DO NOT HAVE DEEP POCKETS. SCIENTIST LIKE DR. PAULUS LINING, ONE OF MOST WONDERFUL SCIENTIST THAT EVER LIVED AND HE WAS TRYING TO KEEP US ALIVE! THE VERY FAR RIGHT THAT DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH EDUCATED HUMANS INVOLVED IN THEIR ORGANIZATION, ARE ONLY ACTIVE IN POLITICS FOR EGO, MONEY, AND ETC...... THEY ARE TRYING TO DESTROY ANY GOOD GOVERNMENT WE HAVE, AND THEY ARE TRYING TO PRIVATIZE ALL OUR GOVERNMENT RUN, PUBLIC FACILILTIES. WE DO NOT NEED BLACK WATER IN OUR LIFES OR SHALL WE SAY THEIR NEW NAME: XE!
THEY ARE A PRIVATE POLICE FORCE THAT ARE BEYOND RUTHLESS. AND SOME OF OUR HIGH GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ALLOWED THEM TO EXIST. PLEASE SAVE THE UNITED STATES AND INSIST ON THE 1% TO LISTEN AND PERFORM WHAT IS BEST FOR THE REST OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE WORLD. WE CAN ALL WORK TOGETHER TO HAVE A BETTER WORLD AND THE 1% WILL LIVE BETTER LIVES ALSO, FOR WE ALL KNOW PHYSICS AND WHAT WE RADIATE IN THE UNIVERSE COMES BACK. THE INSANITY AND VIOLENCE HAS TO STOP IN THIS TIME IN HISTORY 2012! IF YOU STUDY THE ANT SOCIETIES, THEIR NEUROSIS, AND THEIR PHYSICAL VIOLENCE, YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN HUMAN SOCIETY, AND THAT IS INSANE. WE HAVE A HIGHER BRAIN AND ALL MANKIND NEEDS TO USE THAT ALONG WITH THEIR HEARTS FOR A SANE WORLD. ONLY THE TRUTH AND THE HIGHEST GOOD IS HONORABLE. ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MOVIES, WAS: THE LAST SAMURAI. WE NEED TO SEEK ROLE MODELS LIKE BRILLIANT SCIENTISTS THAT ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO ELEVATE LIFE! THANK YOU, LOVE, SHARON WE AS INTELLILGENT PHENOMENA WILL SEE A HIGHER CHANGE, HIGHER INTELLIGENCE.
