Before honey bees are extinct

To US decision-makers:

We call on you to immediately ban the use of neonicotinoid pesticides until and unless new independent scientific studies prove they are safe. The catastrophic demise of bee colonies could put our whole food chain in danger. If you act urgently with precaution now, we could save bees from extinction.

Before honey bees are extinct
Last year, together, we won an amazing victory when we got 28 European countries to ban the poisonous pesticides which kill bees. Now chemical giants are desperately trying to stop us repeating that win in Washington DC.

Bees don't just make honey -- they are a giant, humble workforce, pollinating around a third of the food we live on, and love.President Obama has set up a task force to recommend how to save them, and industry lobbyists are pulling out all the stops to confuse the science and dilute the plan. But if we give Obama’s environment chief and other task force champions a huge public mandate, we can win again!

The task force will report to the White House on Tuesday! Already 2.5 million of us around the world have backed this campaign. Let’s get an unprecedented 3 million strong petition to save the bees, and give allies on the inside massive public backing.This is not just about saving bees, this is about our survival.Sign the emergency petition now, before the honey bees are extinct.
