Action to Save the Bees!

Hi,
Easy and important action request!
Thank you. (Sorry to be a bit off topic on water… but food is essential too.)

Since 2006, U.S. honey bee populations have been in precipitous decline,
with some estimates suggesting losses as high as 30% per year. While
that’s terrible, the problem is far greater than just the loss of a
species.

Without bees, our food supply is in serious danger. Pollination by
honey bees is key in cultivating the crops that produce a full one-third of our
food.

A recently leaked memo suggests the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
has ignored the science linking the pesticide clothianidin to the bee
die-off.

Please sign the petition to E.P.A. Administrator Lisa Jackson demanding an immediate ban and full scientific review of this very dangerous
pesticide:
