Open Letter Calls to Restrict Neonicotinoids
Professor Dave Goulson drafted a letter calling to restrict neonicotinoids worldwide. The letter counts with 232 signatories from the scientific community and briefly explains the problems with neonicotinoids. Although Europe has taken more significant progress, where the European Parliament has already approved the complete ban on all outdoor uses, Goulson insists on the need to expand the efforts beyond. Dave Goulson is a Professor of Biology at the University of Sussex and a renowned advocator for environmental and biodiversity conservation. You may find the published letter at http://science.sciencemag.org/content/360/6392/973.1.full Professor Goulson has also published a video in which he reads the letter and further explores the situation beyond Europe. "It does not make any sense to have a ban in Europe and nothing anywhere else".
