EPA Finally Discovers What’s Killing The Bees


FOR YEARS NOW, HONEYBEES IN THE
UNITED STATES HAVE BEEN DYING AND IT SEEMS TO BE A MYSTERY AS
TO WHAT WAS KILLING THEM. THE EPA HAS FINALLY CONCEDED
THAT A VERY WIDELY USED PESTICIDE COULD BE THE REASON FOR THESE HONEYBEES DYING. THEY RELEASED A REPORT, AND
ACCORDING TO MOTHER JONES THE REPORT CARD WAS SO DIRE THAT
THE EPA COULD POTENTIALLY TAKE ACTION TO RESTRICT OR LIMIT
THE USE OF A CHEMICAL BY THE END OF THIS YEAR. THE CHEMICALS IN QUESTION ARE
REFERRED TO AS NEONICOTINOIDS. TENS OF ACRES OF FARMLAND ARE
SPRAYED WITH THIS PER YEAR. REVEALING DOZENS OF STUDIES,
THE EPA’S RISK ASSESSMENTS AND TEAM ESTABLISH THAT WHEN BEES ENCOUNTERED THESE AT LEVELS THAT ARE COMMON THAT THEY SUFFER
HARM. SPECIFICALLY SOYBEANS AND
COTTON, AND CITRUS ARE AREAS WHERE THESE PESTICIDES ARE USED,
AND IT ENDS UP IN THE POLLEN OF THE FRUIT. AND THAT LEAVES THEM BECOMING
ILL OR DYING COMPLETELY. IT SHUTS DOWN NERVOUS SYSTEMS. THAT IS A TESTAMENT TO HOW
CORRUPT EVERYTHING IN THIS COUNTRY IS RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE
THE EPA COULD NOT JUST ADMIT TO THIS. COLONY COLLAPSE DISORDER,
EVERYBODY’S FREAKING OUT BECAUSE WE HAVE HONEYBEES
DISAPPEARING. I THINK THE POPULATION IS NOW
LESS THAN HALF OF WHAT WAS AT THE END OF WORLD WAR II. ONE IN THREE BITES OF FOOD WE
EAT ORIGINATES FROM POLLINATION FROM BEES. IS GOING TO IMPACT OUR FOOD. THE TWO COMPANIES THAT MAKE
THESE CHEMICALS, I AM UNAWARE AS TO HOW MUCH
POLITICAL SWAY THEY HAVE, BUT I’M GUESSING QUITE A BIT. THIS LONG INSUFFERABLE
PROCESS TO COME UP TO THIS ñ TO
COME UP WITH THIS CONCLUSION
THAT EVERYBODY ALREADY KNEW. OF COURSE IF YOU PUT THE
INSECTICIDE ALL OVER THE FREAKING FLOWER, AND THEN IT IS
GOING TO BE IN THE POLLEN AS WELL. THE GOVERNMENT WAS VERY
RESISTANT TO THAT CRITICISM, THEY WERE RESISTANT
TO ACTUALLY INVESTIGATING IT. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT THE
FIRST ONE THEY INVESTIGATED TURNED OUT. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES? 100 PERCENT. I DON’T IF YOU TRUST THESE
SCIENTISTS, THEY ARE PROBABLY JUST FOLLOWING THE MONEY. CLIMATE CHANGE, SAME GUYS WHO
SAY THAT THERE’S CLIMATE CHANGE ñ SCIENTISTS ARE ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY. THESE ARE SUCH A KEYSTONE
SPECIES, IT IS UNBELIEVABLY CRUCIAL THAT WE MAINTAIN
A POPULATION. A WHILE BACK TOLD, OR
FROGS WERE DISAPPEARING ñ I DON’T KNOW WHY I BROUGHT IT
UP, BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED WITH THAT. I THOUGHT YOU WERE
SETTING UP A JOKE. THEY WERE AFRAID THEY WERE
LOSING CERTAIN TYPES OF TOADS AND FROGS. WE KNEW THIS LESSON WITH DDT,
WITH BIRDS ANY EFFECT IT IS STILL HAVING ON MATTER
POPULATIONS. SILENT SPRING, RACHEL
CARSON, WE KNOW THIS. ALL ENVIRONMENTALISTS KNOW THIS. I READ THIS STORY AND I WAS
LIKE, IS IT GROUNDHOG DAY AT THE EPA? THE RESPONSE WOULD
BE, WHAT DO WE DO? ME TO GET RID OF THE PROBLEM
WHEN THEY ARE GOING CROPS, BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE BUYING IT. IN DOING THIS, THE PROBLEM THEN
IS GOING TO BE, WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO? STOP? BECAUSE THEN WE HAVE TO FIND
AN ALTERNATE SOLUTION. WE ARE LAZY. COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE. THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER WAY
TO DO IT. WE CAN’T KEEP DESTROYING THE
ENVIRONMENT AND PUT OUR HANDS UP IN THE AIR AND SAY IT
IS TOO DIFFICULT TO FIND A NEW SOLUTION. FUEL HAS BEEN THE WAY WE HAVE
ALWAYS DONE IT, WHAT DO YOU WANT US TO DO RESEARCH AND
FIND SOMETHING ELSE? ELECTRIC? WE DON’T WANT TO DO IT BECAUSE
WE’RE TOO GOOD FOR THAT? GOD FORBID WE CREATE
JOBS AROUND INNOVATION. WE ARE NOT ABOUT
THAT LIFE ANYMORE.

  1. How long have neonicotinoids been used in farming? Subtract that number from 5000 and you'll see how long humans have been able to farm successfully without eradicating entire links from the food chain. It is so strange that we, as humans can no longer seem to survive without the inventions created in the past hundred or so years, despite the thousands of years our ancestors did. Modern humans are so useless.

  2. Vertical farms… that is part of the answer. We also need to revolutionize our transportation system – electric cars and maglev evacuated tube technology. Clean energy is already here – we just need to do it. Geothermal alone could provide for most of our energy needs. We also need a cultural change. Eating insects, synthetic food drinks like Soylent, plant-based meats are all alternatives to large scale livestock operations – which are destroying the planet. You want incentive… how about a universal guaranteed income? It would end poverty and research shows that people who receive it are more healthy and motivated. Not to mention that most jobs could be automated. Why are humans still performing menial soul-crushing work that machines could easily do, are we living in the freakin' dark ages? Are we just going to let the top 1% continue to acquire more and more of the world's wealth? Time to wake up people.

  3. LMAO…. WE FRIGGIN' KNOW THIS….. bright… WE are YOU for buying this shit ….. WE?… can you a afford paying the price of innovation? I bet you can't.

  4. These guys are stupid as hell hundreds of chemicals are used in that industry, THEY CANT TEST THEM ALL.
    So sick of them praying on the scientific literate to push there agenda. There is no scientists on the panel so they shouldn't comment on anything to do with science.
    Look at how long it took for the link between cancer and meet to be created, most of that research has been around for 50 years or more that is a real form of corruption.
    There is so much wrong with this they really don't know what they are talking about.

  5. I wonder if that's what's responsible for the Monarch butterfly too.
    In the 90's there were hundreds and thousands of them. Now they're very rare.

  6. You need to use your "Media Powers" to organize 2 class action law suits, one on behalf of the honey bee farmers and the other on behalf of consumers. It is criminal for the EPA to allow corrupt lobbying practices, after which they take the blood money and then screw the enviornment.

  7. "That's a testament to how corrupt everything is in this country" – so the question is how do we end corruption, crime, poverty, environmental degradation & war? Anybody??

  8. instead of listening to these four do your own research and find out the truth, granted pesticides will kill bees, but the varroa mite is doing much more harm. These four have an agenda as dies Mother Jones and I do not like agendas. i would rather have the facts. Mites are also a major cause of bat deaths also.

  9. It's not just many insects that are dying – it is nearly every wild animal species on Earth that is declining in this Anthropocene Era, from Bengal Tigers [almost gone] to Pandas to Tasmanian Devils. What is the one species NOT in decline?

  10. What amazes me is that the citrus and cotton farmers are continuing to use a pesticide that kills the bees that pollinate their crops. Those farmers are the people most affected by the loss of honey bees. No bees = no profits.

  11. This does NOT explain why there has been mass deaths of different animal and bird species over the last decade. And what about the mass spontaneous deaths of fishes in the last 4-5 years???

  12. basically HUMANS again are to blame for another species slowing Dying off as we poison everything on this planet. why am I not surprised at all we are the problem.

  13. Europe new about this killer years ago. Maybe if EPA was not supporting chemical companies, the might have been as smart as Europeans.

  14. Bee Keepers have been saying this since they first started using neonicotinoids, this is just more of  the EPA'S Bulls**t

  15. Sheesh, that girl who isn't Anna has a terrible mouth! I try to tolerate the gargage-talk spewing, but the F word?! SERIOUSLY?! No. Thanks.

  16. Other countries knew this years ago and have banned those chemicals. That's one reason I am very particular about where I put my bee hives and the crops they are close too.

  17. Watch the you tube vid: Paul Stamets – Report from the underground | Bioneers. Its a little long, but so worth the watch. Paul Stamets has been talking about the cause and has found a solution to colony collapse disorder. Mushrooms can save the world.

  18. sad part people made robot size bees just incase bees did DIE :3 so now I don't have to be high end mechanic in robotics

  19. Personhood for bees? A silly idea? The Whanganui river has been granted personhood, why not bees?

  20. It probably just took science this long to actually pinpoint the problem, do studies, do trials. This kind of thing takes years to do. And it sounds like they may not still be 100% sure.

  21. so you have ortho saying that they will phase this out by 2021. really! why not phase it out now before it's to late.

  22. Actually, the quote said "COULD"..be the culprit. It just irritates me when someone reads a quote, the quote states says this COULD BE the culprit. Then they look into the camera, and say that the EPA has CONCLUDED that this IS the culprit. I mean the words have two different meanings.

    I think a lot of it has to be the way commercial pollination keepers do business. Have you ever seen the massive amounts of antibiotics/antifungals used?? They literally drench the bees in these chemicals at feeding stations. I also think the blood lines used for queens have been too narrow for far to many years. We generally use one type of bee for honey and pollination, one new disease could wipe out the population. Look at banana production worldwide, everyone using the same species. Now there is a disease wiping out all banana production on a massive scale. And it only affects the type of banana that is used commercially.

  23. this is a worldwide problem and not only in the US. honeybees are dying out approximately at a faster rate than in the US. even in my country when they sprayed those rice and sugar field. These guys dressed like those people working in a nuclear facility spraying those fields. when I looked at this first thing came to my mind was "OMG, I am feeling sorry sorry for the birds and the bees"

  24. I have something to say, but I don't know the best place to say it.  I live in Ithaca ny,  been in the area all my life, this past summer I have dun quite a bit of driving, several trips to Rochester, sayre pa. many trips to a camp ground over Binghamton way. And one thing I have noticed is that I have not had to clean bugs off my wind shield….. not once. seems to me that if I went on a road trip I would have to stop at a gas station and clean the black flies off the wind shield… when was the last time any one of you walked threw a field of high grass??.. remember no so long ago if you did that you were over come by locust?… not here. not this summer. I have actually seen maybe TWO grass hoppers all summer…. now is this just me??……

  25. you'd think they could make a bunch of bee drones or pay homeless people to walk around pollinating things by hand

  26. the chem trails are killing the bees… ionized aluminum, brings earlier death to the bees just as it does to humans

  27. Bees are healthy and thriving in Cuba. Since the Soviet collapse, Cuba was unable to afford pesticides due to a lack of foreign currency coupled with trade embargo. Organic honey became an exporter crop.

  28. Monsanto is who it is doing this. Bayer recently purchased monsanto. Now then. You still think GMO foods are safe?

  29. A man bought a hay field across my road from my organic farm.He started spraying the field 2 or 3 times a week.I had 50 hives and too much honey to give away until he started spraying.Last week he bought a tanker truck and sprayed.I have 3 more dead hives today.He does not care he likes to spray

  30. Beekeepers have been presenting evidence of this since these pesticides were introduced… almost ten years ago. It's not like the EPA didn't know.

  31. Wierd, actual bee researchers agree it is a b vitamin dificiencey.

    Sounds like the EPA is about to sell us a "new" pesticide. Thanks lobbyists.

  32. Just FYI. Bees do not consume pollen, pollen is carried on their legs and as a method of fertilizing other flowers. Bees only consume nectar.

  33. The bees consume nectar, then get pollin on their bodies, and go from flower to flower, causing cross pollination. Without bees, what would happen? Monsanto pesticide crops, poisons, and other chemicals are the downfall of life on earth.

  34. I work in agriculture, if bees declined to half their population, why did farmers have a surplus crop. Did something other than bees pollinate those crops? I'm dissapointed at how gullible the average population is. Green energy and now bees are a coverup. All respect to beekeepers out there subsidized or unsubsidized I enjoy honey on my toast in the morning.

  35. Young turks is fake news..they support mainstream corporations. All crops are almost GMO with pesticides in them already so once spraying stops it wont matter. These corporations know that. Wifi. Is next cause of them dying but turks don't research that. Interesting…its like there 3 steps behind on purpose.

  36. The timing of neo-nic introduction and CCD may be coincidental. Neo-nics first hit the US market in the late 80s. Widespread use in the 90s. Yet, there were CCD "pandemics" prior to the introduction of these compounds. The timing argument has no weight and is completely unscientific. That being said, if neo-nics are suspected in this current CCD pandemic then the EPA must assume the worse and take action. I firmly believe that in the world of pesticides that the compound is guilty until proven innocent. I feel the same regarding pharmaceuticals.

  37. There were in Argentina 72 million of bees killed in one day by an pesticide called "fipronil" ban bad pesticides now !

  38. Microwave radiation could be playing a huge roll in what's destroying our bee's and it has the potential get much worse with 5G . Why don't you guys ever give the full picture and debate? I know the answer to that but never mind 🙂

  39. Bayer, Wow! You mean a pharmaceutical company might have undue influence over Congress and government agencies? You mean the pharmaceutical companies have lobbyist who spend $millions to influence congresspersons & government employees? You mean that there might be corruption in the House, the Senate, the FDA & the CDC? You mean the CDC might order researchers to destroy study data that does not support a predetermined outcome? You mean that this may result in a fraudulent report that verifies the safety of say, vaccines? (as exposed by Dr Thompson, whistleblower at Merck)

  40. I agree with raiders guy!!! People are lazy wanna get rich fast and don’t care how!!! Some ppl need to be locked up for their get rich fast scams that cause harm!!!!

  41. That's bullshit!! 5G is the real reason the Bees are quickly disappearing. I just saw a guys car covered in pollen and no bees to be found and he has flower bushes everywhere. Nobody there is using pesticides, that's a bunch of BS to cover up what is really going on!!!!

  42. The Young Turds, we would like you to consider being test subjects for multiple 5G towers in your building. Should you agree, we would gladly pay the mortgage on your building for as long as you can continue to broadcast. This offer will be made to all libtard media channels.

  43. Straight liars! Look how they sit there and lie with straight faces. And it's obvious the one guy is lying, his nose doubled in size by the end of the video. Tyt are paid liars like the rest.

  44. FYI, we have a new bee problem. Search bees dying 5G. They are literally dropping dead out of the sky when they fly between 2 5G towers.
