Not long ago in a bee sized version of the Wikileaks leak,  a beekeeper “leaked” an internal EPA document to the public the clearly shows the pesticide “Clothianidin” is toxic to bees.  Yet in spite of their own findings they chose to ignore the facts and instead based their decision to allow the sale of …

Please Ignore the Mess

Over the coming weeks I’ll be working on reorganizing this website and blog to hopefully make it easier to maintain and give it a bit of a facelift.   The main site was originally implemented in phpwcms which is a great simple php based CMS (Content management system).  It’s easy to setup and maintain, but …
