     BEE colony collapse
A suit (pdf) filed by Earthjustice charges that the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) is "rubber-stamping" the approval of new pesticides, particularly neonicotinoids or neonics, "without first complying with laws enacted to ensure that they are safe."

“DPR has been saying for five years that neonicotinoid pesticides may be killing California’s honey bees, and yet the agency allows more and more of these pesticides to be used each year,” said Greg Loarie, an... attorney at Earthjustice. In 2009, DPR began a scientific review of neonics in response to overwhelming evidence that linked the pesticides to bee decline.

The legal challenge, which was filed in the California Superior Court for the County of Alameda, demands that the court review DPR's June 13 decision to expand the use of two powerful neonics, known as Venom Insecticide and Dinotefuran 20SG, despite the office's still-pending review of their impact to pollinators.

“Unless halted, the use of these pesticides threatens not only the very survival of our pollinators, but the fate of whole ecosystems," said Andrew Kimbrell, executive Director of Center for Food Safety.

This is not a prank: I was rammed today by a Dodge Ram truck driven by an illegal immigrant who fell asleep at the wheel. Turns out he had no license, no insurance and no driving instruction. This happened near Austin Texas and had I not stopped this guy's vehicle with my own, he would have driven right into a busy intersection at full speed, potentially causing fatalities. It's an unspoken truth across Texas: Illegal aliens are causing HUGE numbers of road accidents and putting public safety at risk. This problem is far worse than drunk driving: it's people who drive without any proper training or insurance!
