Greed Causing ECOCIDE: Bees Are Not the Only Species Facing Imminent Extinction

The Fox (Monsanto) Buys the Chicken Coop (Beeologics)By Richard Schiffman, OpEd News 05 May 12

[excerpt] Monsanto spokeswomen Kelly Powers says it is to give the fledgling company a helping hand. Beeologics has developed a product called Remembee, an anti-viral agent which its boosters claim will help stem the tide of Colony Collapse Disorder, a mysterious plague which has led to the disappearance of the bees in up to a third of the commercial colonies located in the U.S. during the last decade.

The root of the problem, however, may not be the parasitic virus targeted by Remembee, a chemical agent which utilizes RNA interference to block gene expression, but the herbicides and insecticides that multinationals like Monsanto, Dow and Bayer have themselves been hawking to farmers around the world.

This is the conclusion of three recent studies which implicate a class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids, or "neonics" for short, which coat a massive 142 million acres of corn, wheat, soy and cotton seeds in the U.S. alone.... [end excerpt]

Majia here: Greed is going to kill off the bees, just like it is going to kill off US, because wealthy corporations, industries, individuals will not suffer a single penny loss to save the biosphere.

Ecocide is happening now!

  1. We should revisit the evidence
    The most damning evidence against nuke is that in the multiple explosions, there were tens of tons of uranium and at least 400 pounds to maybe tons of plutonium aerosolized. As shown by peer reviewed EPA data of those heavy metals in air filter samples. They jacked up to 2600% to 3400% over baseline levels as late as Early April 2011. Much of it fell out of the sky into the ocean, but much did not, and was measured in Guam, Saipan, Honolulu, Kauai, and California.

    Nuke is poisoning us, again and again. 50% to 66% of us will get cancer, it didn't used to be this way.

    Here is the evidence, and calculations, the entire design basis of the assertions of the EPA data.
