WASHINGTON, D.C. – A truck full of dead bees will make its final stop at a rally. That rally will be outside the headquarters of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This is culminating from a coast-to-coast tour raising awareness about bees. You see bees recently have been dying by massive declines. This leaves serious questions about our pollinators.
While millions of dead bees remain in the truck, there are people. These people are Fellow advocates and beekeepers. For the bees, they will deliver over 4 million signatures to the EPA. They are urging an immediate ban on bee-killing pesticides.
Most noteworthy point came from James. He added If some fundamental things don’t change, it’s going to be really hard. hard for beekeepers to adapt to the environment around us.
As a result, science is clear and convincing. That’s why we need a nationwide policy. This policy must protect our pollinators before the crisis gets completely out of control. That was also noted by Del. Anne Healey. ANNE is sponsor of Maryland’s Pollinator Protection Act. This would be the first bill passed in the United States to eliminate use of neoconics.
I have never seen any compelling reason to use systemic insecticides,” said Jim Goodman. Jim is a farmer and owner of Northwood Organic Farm in Wonewoc, Wisconsin.
In conclusion, Crop rotation as part of a diverse mix of crops, pasture and native plants seems to work quite well. Of course it makes little profit for the corporations that manufacture agricultural chemicals. As we can see, and there is the rub!
Bees are the most important thing for sustainable food growth. That’s one of the reasons Jim sources 100 percent organic food. That food is free of pesticides that may cause pollinators harm. That quote came from Nora. Nora is owner and founder of Restaurant Nora, America’s first certified organic restaurant.
Bottom line, we can’t allow the chemical agribusiness industry to continue. These are short-sighted practices. These practices will furthermore increase food costs and thereby food supplies diminish. That’s the most important point!
“We have so many losses it’s worse than break-even. It is getting harder and harder to keep bees and make a living.” That’s a quote came from Roger Williams. Roger is president of the Central Maryland Beekeepers Association. Roger most notable said “if we stop keeping bees, who’s going to pollinate your fruits and vegetables? This can’t go on!”
