Bee Diseases
To bee or not to bee?

Bees are vital to the survival of our agriculture. Yet they are in very serious decline all over the world. Without immediate action to save bees we could end up with no fruit, no vegetables, no nuts, no oils and no cotton -- as well as no honey. Some studies claim the decline may be due to a combination of factors including disease, habitat loss and toxic chemicals. But leading independent research has produced strong evidence blaming neonicotinoid pesticides. This has led to beekeepers and scientists in France, Italy, Slovenia and even Germany, where the main manufacturer Bayer is based, already pushing successfully for bans of one of these bee killers. Meanwhile, Bayer continues to export its poison across the world. This petition calls for a halt to this lethal situation https://secure.avaaz.org/en/save_the_bees/?vl until and unless the chemical fertilizers used are shown to be safe. Are you prepared to add your voice to this cause?

I agree with you that the consequences of the demise of bees will have dire repercussions and I have followed this for a number of years however I am not prepared to sign the petition without clear evidence that neonicotinoid pesticides are the root cause, until then such action as signing this petition is nothing more than an online witch hunt.
Sorry but no.
