Save the Bees! Ban Neonics Pesticide.

Some time ago, I wrote a post about the decline of the bee population. At that time, it was not known for sure what was causing the death of the bees, but pesticides were believed to be the culpit.

Now, an international team of scientists have firmly pointed the finger at Neonics. This pesticide is used extensively on genetically engineered crops. And it is not just affecting the bees. It also poses a significant risk to earthworms and birds and it is harming the planet's ecosystem.
