“Unfortunately, and predictably, the overheated mainstream news headlines also generated a slew of even more exaggerated stories on activist and quack websites where undermining agricultural chemicals is a top priority (e.g., Greenpeace, End Times Headlines, and Friends of the Earth).

Alternatives Could Be Worse.”), got the contradictory findings of the study and the headline right.”

Don’t worry, bee happy.

“You’ve probably heard the bad news by now that bees were recently added to the endangered species list for the first time.
