    A United States appeals court ruled on Thursday that federal regulators erred in allowing an insecticide developed by Dow AgroSciences onto the market, canceling its approval and giving environmentalists a major victory... The lawsuit was filed in 2013 against the Environmental Protection Agency by a number of organizations representing the honey and beekeeping industries. The groups specifically challenged the E.P.A. approval of insecticides containing sulfoxaflor, saying studies have shown they are highly toxic to honeybees. Sulfoxaflor is a neonicotinoid subclass, according to the ruling.

    one out of many. Hoping Roundup starts to disappear too, it is decimating forage everywhere as well as poisoning us via the gmo crops of soy and corn and beet sugar

    As long as companies can "donate" to an electoral fund, I don't see any changes for the better...

    As the saying goes, "one hand washes the other".

    What are you going to use to replace all those pesticides and roundup?
