This made the headlines earlier this month as this is great news for bees and our civilization as Albert Einstein stated that “ If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live. “
The European commission seems to have understood that as it will ban three pesticides -called neonicotinoids or neonics for short – that are particularly harmful to bees and other pollinating agents. The ban will last two years.
This is a historic victory for environmental movements as bees pollinate up to 75 percent of all crops. Let’s hope other countries will follow the European lead.
