godspeed, my friends!
godspeed, my friends!
Follow the rules
I agree to THESE terms and conditions.
I’m glad to see more and more awareness of this on my dash
If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Why isn’t this more of an issue?
Like why is our entire existence at stake and all anyone wants to talk about on the news is the “TWERKING PHENOMENON”.

!!!THIS IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT!!!
Once it’s on the internet……
"While the film makers of Santo Movie were researching for the film, they came across a little known fact that should be sweeping the internet and informing farmers across America and other countries facing territorial Monsanto.
Even though the Monsanto protection act is in place and even though Monsanto is known for it’s brutal attack of patent infringement, typically leading toexpensive court battles for farmers and ultimately the demise of the heritage built for those farmers who cannot afford the legal battle, there is a glimmer of hope that has been discovered.
The shining light is simple and vastly overlooked.
If the farmers across America simply test any plants that could be cross contaminated on their organic or natural farms from Monsanto GM, that farmer can demand Monsanto to remove those contaminated plants from their property BEFORE Monsanto ever tries to sue them for the said infringement.
If Monsanto refuses, and demands the farmer to not touch those plants, under jurisdiction of patent rights, the farmer can exorcise it’s right to tell Monsanto their plants are on the farmers property and therefore trespasses.
Then the farmer can remove the plants and send Monsanto the bill.
If Monsanto refuses the bill, the farmer can file a small claims court case for the amount of removal and thus get paid from Monsanto and avoid the dreaded notorious gag order not to ever talk about their settlement that almost inevitably comes with any agreement Monsanto makes with farmers.
While this might seem simple enough, it is a fact that not many farmers even know they have this recourse.
Please help spread the word and help this go viral.
Sometimes it is artists such as these film makers who discover the innocent weapons that can bring the war to a halt.
We applaud Santo movie for this poignant surprise against Monsanto.
Knowledge in this case truly is the powerful weapon.”
