For those of you who are trying to understand the neonics issue, here is a good interview on a program called Before You Leap with Alex Lu of Harvard, Peter Jenkins of the Center For Food Safety (lead attorney in the EPA lawsuit) and Steve Ellis, commercial beekeeper from Minnesota.
Before You Leap
Some critics say that Professor Lu is just an anti-pesticide, anti-GMO academic activist But according to the Boston Globe story, those who know him best say Professor Lu is actually a pretty moderate guy.
I’m not really a die hard tree hugger, but on neonicotinoids I do have a strong feeling that this class of pesticide does not belong to modern society.
Interview is 50 min. long, but worth the time.
