The reason, according to the findings of a new investigation, is that pesticide giants such as Bayer, Monsanto, and Syngenta have deployed an aggressive lobbying campaign to dilute and suppress attempts to regulate their multi-billion dollar industry—with great success.
Can you imagine the psychotic nature of a corporation that knowingly not only obfuscates information but actively fight to continue their status quo of killing off our bee population.
It may be that they truly do not believe that their products cause death to bees and in fact they may not be the only contributor – there have been articles about disease and also impacts of wifi – but even in the face of additional factors that does not eliminate the impact of their product. If they believe enough to do this with a clear conscious then they’re victims of confirmation bias.
Published by environmental watchdog Friends of the Earth, the report (pdf) exposes “how the pesticide industry has weakened and delayed pesticide reforms and is shaping new pollinator ‘protection’ plans nationwide that do little to protect bees, but a lot to protect industry profits.”
And the morons who represent them certainly do not represent me.
