Environmentalists have been working overtime trying to convince the public that pesticides, like Roundup, are bad for you. They seek to get pesticides outlawed despite clear evidence that pesticides do not contribute to disease outbreaks and help farmers fend off insects that ruin crop yields which helps the human food supply. In reality and as… Read More Glyphos’gate’ and the IARC
Guest essay by Patrick Moore, PhD Some time ago it struck me that the majority of alleged environmental catastrophes and threats are invisible or very remote, thus making it virtually impossible for the average person to validate them through observation. Observations, along with replications of those observations, are the very foundation of the scientific method. Seeing…… Read More Twelve Invisible Eco-Catastrophes and Threats of Doom That are Actually Fake — WUWT?
Two years ago, The Vancouver Sun interviewed Greenpeace co-founder and scientist Dr. Patrick Moore. In this exchange, Moore shares his views with interviewer Stu McNish on topics such as the environmentalist movement, Greenpeace, climate change,and GMO’s.
Some interesting insights out of New Zealand. The vice president of the country’s farming association, Colin Hurst, is quoted as saying if neonicotinoid pesticides are banned, it will result in even more sprayed pesticide use. According to NZFarmer, Hurst states that seeds in New Zealand are usually coated with neonicotinoids which prevented insects from eating… Read More Banning Neonicotinoid Pesticides Increases Pesticide Use
This video gives the background about the man behind Glyphosate, why he is winning some of the highest honors in science despite environmentalist chemophobia about his invention, and why farmers use pesticides.
Every year Earth Day brings out a variety of termites and this year is no different. Lo and behold the so-called Environmental Working Group publishes its fourteenth annual Dirty Dozen list describing which products in your local supermarket’s produce aisle are allegedly contaminated by pesticides. This being done in hopes of you embracing an organic… Read More Ignore the Scare-Mongering About Pesticides
In 2006 bees started disappearing. Beekeepers reported losing up to 90% of their beehives. And no one knew why. Nearly every news outlet and environmentalist group sounded the alarm, warning of an imminent beepocalypse that would devastate our food supply. But while alarm bells rang, things turned around. And bee colonies are now at a… Read More What Happened to the Beepocalypse?
With all of the pseudo-hoopla over bee populations allegedly declining, never let it be said somehow, someone won’t come up with a solution to a problem. In the case of bees, Eijiro Miyako of the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science is developing robotic bees that can help replace bees affected by Colony Collapse… Read More RoboBees Could Pollinate the Earth
If correctly used, a University of Guelph research team found no colony-level risk to honeybees from neonic pesticides after going through a number of published and unpublished manuscripts. Upon the request of Bayer and Syngenta, researchers at the University of Gelph, headed by toxicologist Keith Solomon and aide teacher Gladys Stephenson, examined 64 papers from… Read More Study: Correct neonic use reveals no honeybee colony risk
A bee specialist out of Switzerland named Jean-Daniel Charrière was interviewed by Swissinfo in which Dr. Charrière states that while neonic pesticides should be concerned about neonic pesticides, but the biggest threat to bee populations and the focus of policies to help them should be on vorra mites. He is quoted as saying: For the… Read More Swiss bee expert: focus on vorra mites, not pesticides
