bee pesticides epa 263x164 Insanity: US Approves Bee Death Pesticide as EU Bans ItCorporate 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.

    Find those responsible and deal with them accordingly.

  • tamarindwalk

    Well, we all know that the corporations, AIPAC, and the NRA run the Republican Party.

    • ThenAgain

      LOL. Those of us who know the game know that your little trick is to attempt to use ‘izrahell’ and the ‘repubs’ or ‘nra’ as if there is ANY difference between the ‘parties’. You’re not just stupid, you’re a govt shill trying to run the ‘party’ game, and it’s transparently stupid to keep trying to do that at this point.

      BOTH parties voted for the NDAA, BOTH parties allow the zionist fed reserve to kill this country in debt, Both parties are allowing you to be sprayed with Chemtrails, BOTH parties have allowed zionist monsatan to take over the food supply INCLUDING the MANY years that your precious ‘dems’ had the majority, and NOW while obama is pres he keeps monsatan at the head of the fda. But you just try and pretend that away, ok? LOL. Of course ‘aipac’ is part of it all, they are the US/London Zionist/marxist bankers side war tool, but don’t pretend for a second that obama and the demoRats are the smallest flea speck different than the repubs, they are ALL sold out to the zionist bankers/war profiteers -

        And by the way, look Up, we are All being sprayed with chemtrails, no matter where you are, this is also killing the bees. An exc video on this is – http://www.archive.org/details/DontTalkAboutTheWeather_451
        Also search -monsanto chemtrails aluminum drought resistant seed, they and others are profiting from destroying the food supply with chemtrails. Killing the bees is just one of their goals.

      • BaBaBoosh

        He said chemtrails! Everybody drink!

      • ThenAgain

        ‘baboob’ what is that. You’re being slowly killed by being forced to breath aluminum, barium, strontium 90, fungii, ‘smart dust’ and other content. The aluminum must be getting to you, or you’re a disruptor troll. Grow up.

    • UM...

      There’s no difference between republican and democrat, they BOTH support these actions, BOTH Romney and Obama, as well as Clinton and Bush. and I’m sure a bunch of other presidents had Monsanto contribute to their campaign.
      I hope you’re still not choosing a party over another, because it’s all the same, they all want the same things, and they are ran by the same ppl.

  • crabby

    a bee research lab found GMO crops were killing the bees .. monsanto bought the lab..

  • Geno Cidal

    Its amazing how a revolution would end all this

  • UM...

    We’re born into slavery through our birth certificates
    We’re eating GMOs and pesticides
    Drinking flouride
    And inhaling chemtrails
    If this isnt genocide I dont know what is…
