PARIS (Reuters) – A French court suspended on Friday the license for two pesticides made by Dow Chemical, citing uncertainty over environmental risks including their effects on bees.
Can you imagine this happening in the U.S.?
In another amazing citizen triumph, the Australians demanded the end to neonicotinoids, a major bee killing chemical used in agriculture and found in many over the counter insecticides at your local plant nurseries.
These days I am more concerned than ever about chemicals and the effects they have on all life forms, including humans. In an era where the EPA is quietly being rendered impotent, it is time for citizens to become informed and demand healthy alternatives. As blocks of consumers, we have incredible clout. Some safe alternatives to pests include bio-solutions of beneficial insects, soaps, bt, sulphur and oils. Research it. Boycott chemicals.
It’s time to evolve as human beings—to a safe, chemical free world—even as Dow, Bayer and Monsanto sell our earth out for profiteering and their bottom lines.
We are all one in the web of life.
