Bayer Throws Tantrum over Pesticide Ban, Sues Europe

At this rate, Bayer, Monsanto and Syngenta will be starring in their own dystopian documentary — “It Sued The World.”

Bayer and Syngenta are suing the European Union in order to preserve their right to keep dousing the world with pesticides.  Scientific research has concluded that neonicotinoid pesticides — manufactured by Bayer and Syngenta — are the cause of the worldwide honeybee die-off.  In response, the European Union established a two-year ban on neonicotinoid pesticides, in the hope of saving the bee population.  Or in other words, saving the world’s food supply.

Hence the lawsuit. 

Here are some more links.

If the Poison Industrial Complex is successful in their lawsuit against the European Union, who will they sue next?

Please sign this petition asking Bayer and Syngenta to drop their lawsuit against the European Union.

Do you think the EU will share their food with us when we have none?

Randal: Before that happens, we'll all be drinking Brawndo for our only sustenance. And that's fortunate, since by then the last orchard and crop field will have been paved over.

Jerry: Nah.

Erik: I think Canada and most European countries are a little bit less corporate-owned than America, but not much.
