We have a limited window of time to deal with the neonicotinoid crisis in New York. And YOU can make a difference! Neonicotinoids have been described as the worst pesticide since DDT.

  • They are responsible for plummeting insect and bird populations.
  • Their application shows absolutely no increase in farmers’ yields.
  • By destroying the soil biome (and therefore the soil’s ability to absorb carbon), they are a serious contributor to climate change.
  • Their use has terrible implications for human health – especially that of pregnant women and children.

We need to ban their use (which has been done in other countries). Luckily there is a bill in New York which would do just that – in a smart, targeted way: The Birds and Bees Protection Act (S1856) – But we just have a few days to get it implemented.

Join the NRDC’s Dan Raichel and Dr Kathy Nolan from Physicians for Social Responsibility to learn about the problem and then TAKE ACTION using the free, Climate Action Now App.

Together we can make a difference. Tell your friends!
