I don’t really use my blog for anything but my personal writing these days, all “journalistic” activities are kept to various different places. However, there are times, like now, when I break my self-imposed rules because I care very much about a particular cause. I am not an “environment freak”, but I do care about our planet and the state we are going to leave it in for our children. I won’t even get started on Monsanto because this is not the place…so let’s just say that I have written at length about it, and that in France in particular, we are virulent in our opposition to this “monster” of a company.
If you want to know more about Monsanto and the real harm it has caused (and is still causing) the world, you can do so over here: Millions Against Monsanto
But the real point of my post today is the huge threat facing the world’s bees and other pollinators. So few people seem to really care about this and I’m wondering if they actually realise what the ultimate disappearance of pollinators would mean for the planet. In any case, here’s a very good Washington Post article about it: Unprecedented scientific report says bees and other pollinators are in dire need of our help
I don’t usually do this, but if you are in any way interested and willing to help a little bit, here’s a link for you: Help Stop Bees From Going Extinct
