What a shock it was to turn to the back page of the July 11 Nation & World section and see the almost hidden article “Pesticides cited in bee collapse.”
The alarming truth that human use of neonicotinoid pesticides has directly resulted in the die-off (Colony Collapse Disorder) of honeybees shouldn’t have been hidden on the back page. This is a reality that will affect the food supply for every human and animal living on earth. Without honeybees, billions of people and animals will starve. Move this story to the front page so that the public will be better informed of this serious issue.
