Save the Bees

This petition had 3,859 supporters

Bees are an essential part to agriculture, responsible for the pollination of 71 out of 100 of the crops that make up 90% of the world's food supply. They are being killed by neonicotinoids in pesticides. If we don't put a stop to this, all of the bees will eventually be killed. We would like to propose a bill that will do the following.

  1. Neonicotinoids in any capacity are hereby banned in pesticide production and use.
  2. Farmers continuing neonicotinoid use will be punished with loss of farm subsidies for fifteen years (five half-lives of standard neonicotinoids).
  3. This legislation will be screened by the EPA and enforced by the USDA.
  4. All laws in conflict with this legislation are hereby declared null and void.
