Companies continue to destroy rainforest, drive species to extinction, produce massive climate emissions and abuse the human rights of their workers - all for palm oil. Photo by Uwe Aranas.
At the very least, this is a wakeup call for Canada. Here in my country, authorities would have us believe the main threat to bees is from CORN treated with neonics. Yet vast areas of Canada are sown to CANOLA, a huge oilseed crop here and the same one referenced in this story. Yet few, if any studies are aimed at determining how big a threat treated CANOLA is to pollinators. Here in my home province, Manitoba, most honey is produced from bees who forage on canola. This is a huge issue which needs to be tackled, now. Yet our politicians and regulators remain asleep at the switch, dumb-as-posts to the imminent dangers. www.PlanetInPeril.ca
