Increase Loss of Crops: Will Bee Colony Collapse Disorder Increase?

Increase Loss of Crops:  Will Bee Colony Collapse Disorder Increase?

I appreciate Anthony’s article.  He is one to follow at his Natural Society website.

If our bee population keeps decreasing from Colony Collapse Disorder, how will our edible plants we grow that need pollination are going to grow?  And what about our supply of honey?

You have to wonder  why our government would approve this with the Colony Collapse Disorder problems we are having with bees?   How well was this researched before approving this? 

Don’t you think that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conduct extensive studies on Roundup (glyophosphate) and other pesticides?  Once the genie is out of the bottle, how difficult is it to put it back in?

Insanity:  US Approves Bee Death Pesticide as EU Bans It

Corporate politics is business as usual inside the United States, as I am  once again shocked to report the EPA has  sided with industry lobbyists over public health in approving a  highly dangerous pesticide that the European Union recently decided to ban over  fears of environmental devastation. Not only have neonicotinoid  pesticides been linked repeatedly to mass bee deaths, also known as Colony  Collapse Disorder (CCD), but the  continued use of such pesticides threatens other aspects of nature (and humans)  as well.

What’s even more amazing is that the decision not only comes after  the EU publicly  discussed the major dangers surrounding the use of the pesticides, but after  the USDA released a report surrounding the continued honeybee deaths and the  related effects — a report in which they detailed pesticides to be a  contributing factor. Just the impact on the honeybees alone, and we now know  that these pesticides are killing  aquatic life and subsequently the birds that feed upon them, amounts to a  potential $200 billion in global damages per year. We’re  talking about the devastation of over 100 crops, from apples to  avocados and plums.

And there’s countless scientists and a large number of environmental science  groups speaking out on this. The EPA has no  lack of information the subject. And sure, there are other contributing factors  to bee deaths, there’s no question about that. We have an environment right now  being hit with Monsanto’s Roundup even in residential areas, we have chemical  rain, we have insane amounts of EMF — but it’s pretty clear  that neonicotinoid pesticides are at least a major contributing factor. And  beyond that, they have no place in the food supply to begin with.

The Pesticide Action Network (PAN)  details the EU ban that came right before the EPA acceptance of the death-linked   pesticide:

“The EU vote comes after significant findings by the European Food Safety  Agency that these pesticides pose an unacceptable risk to bees and their use  should be restricted. Along with habitat loss and pathogens, a growing body of  science points to neonicotinoid pesticides as a key factor in drastically  declining bee populations.”

So why are they approving this pesticide to now pollute the United States in  what potentially amounts to an even larger capacity than the EU? A move that  will ultimately escalate the price of food worldwide due to the likely nature of  continued bee deaths and subsequent crop impact? That’s the power of phony  corporate science.
