UK Lifts Insecticide Ban; Insecticide Found in Pollen, Honey; Massive Whale Slaughter

Fears for bees as UK lifts insecticide ban. A UK government agency has used emergency rules to make controversial neonicotinoid insecticides available to some farmers, despite a European ban.

 

Honeybees show evidence of insecticide. More than 70 percent of pollen and honey samples collected in Massachusetts contained neonicotinoid, which has been linked to colony collapse.

 

Massive Pod of Pilot Whales Slaughtered in the Faroe Islands. On Monday, two members of Sea Shepherd were arrested by the Danish navy (The Faroe Islands are an autonomous country within the Danish kingdom) after “following a flotilla of small Faroese boats thought to be heading for” a slaughter, reports The Guardian. Per a new law—the Faroese Pilot Whaling Act—anyone caught trying to stop the hunt could face up to two years in prison. The two activists’ court appearance is scheduled for today.
