EPA to expand use of a proven toxin on crops
The Environmental Destruction Agency's own scientific research has proven that thiamethoxam is "known to have both acute and chronic effects on aquatic invertebrates, honeybees, birds, butterflies and other pollinator species; they are a major factor in overall pollinator declines. These systemic insecticides cause entire plants, including pollen and fruit, to become toxic to pollinators; ; they are also slow to break down and therefore build up in the environment." And yet they have taken no action to ban this substance. To the contrary and in true Dump fashion, they are now considering expanding its use. Isn't this just great America?
