EU banning bee-killing pesticide. Not U.S.

The European Union is banning a bee-killing pesticide to stem the collapse of its bee colonies. Meanwhile, there’s no such ban in the U.S., where 45% of hives were lost last winter, up 78% from the year before.

Bees pollinate 1/3 of our food. We need them, and we need to stem the pesticides, monocultures, and loss of habitat diversity that are killing them off at alarming rates.
