Leaked EPA Document Shows It Knowingly Allowed Pesticide that Kills Honey Bees

“The world honey bee population has plunged in recent years, worrying beekeepers
and farmers who know how critical bee pollination is for many crops. A number of theories have popped up as to why the North American honey bee population has declined–electromagnetic radiation, malnutrition, and climate change have all been pinpointed. Now a leaked EPA document reveals that the agency allowed the widespread use of a bee-toxic pesticide, despite warnings from EPA scientists.

The document, which was leaked to a Colorado beekeeper, shows that the EPA has ignored warnings about the use of clothianidin, a pesticide produced by Bayer that mainly is used to pre-treat corn seeds. The pesticide scooped up $262 million in sales in 2009 by farmers, who also use the substance on canola, soy, sugar beets, sunflowers, and wheat, according to Grist. ”

What is wrong with this band of human detritus? They released this chemical, in full knowledge, and have then allowed the world to wonder about and search for the reason why bees are dying en masse. These are the same people who authorised Corexit in the Gulf.

Deliberate attempt to reduce food supply or simply cold blooded disregard in the name of profit? Having just glanced through some pages of the leaked report, this looks like pretty lethal stuff for many forms of life.
