I have been hearing about the suspected effects of the nicotinamide pesticides on the bee populations for about a year now and their deadly effect has become increasingly clear. It is only within the past month that it I have become aware that these pesticides are killing the birds that either drink water polluted with the stuff or eat insects carrying it in their bodies.
We have evolved on this planet in exquisite balance with everything in, on, and around it. There is nothing superfluous, nothing extra, nothing not needed. We are part and parcel of it. Yet within the past blink of an evolutionary eye, our species is determinedly destroying the one known place in the universe that he is perfectly evolved to inhabit.
My frustration grows with the knowledge that we will not stop until we are stopped.
