Over the years numerous law suits have been filed against the U.S. EPA by beekeepers and other concerned citizens in an effort to protect honeybees. Although the global population of honeybees and other pollinators continues to decline, EPA continues to take action at a glacial pace. In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, which is produced by The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer and special guest co-host, Colorado beekeeper, Tom Theobald talk to Greg Loarie, Esq. from Earthjustice about several lawsuits against EPA regarding the protection of honeybees. Stay tuned!
