% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 

Save Monarchs, Plant More Milkweed. The report makes it abundantly clear: two decades of Roundup Ready crops have nearly eradicated milkweed—the monarch caterpillar’s sole source of food—in cropland of the monarch’s vital Midwest breeding ground.

‘Beepocalypse not’: ALEC lobbyists abuzz in defense of pesticides amid die-offs. Barack Obama may be pushing America into an abyss of gay-loving, Iran-hugging, welfare-splurging socialist ruin, but conservatives can console themselves with at least one piece of good news: the “beepocalypse” is over.
