Pollination is so crucial to the food we eat. Thank you EU for being concerned and as for US Gov. , well what do you expect its always been money over health.

This shows clearly that politicians (including Obama) are no more than puppets on a string.

Some American corporation will figure out a way to profit from the resulting dying plant life.

I know why they do that, they are indirectly suggesting world wide gov to take care of these things
