September 9, 2011 New pesticides and dying bees: what can you do?

Prof. Jeroen van der Sluijs gave us a short lecture on this silent disaster on our Dutch premiere in Amsterdam Sept 6th: new sorts of pesticides, like imidacloprid, have a higher toxicity than other pesticides and are accelerating the collapse of the ecosystem. Since 2004, Dutch surface water is heavily polluted with imidacloprid and other chemicals. One of the alarming results is the decline of the population of honeybees: a crucial member of our food chain.


Yet, the pollution is not limited to Dutch soil only. The population of honey bees in the UK and in the rest of the world has dropped by around 70 per cent in the last 35 years and it seems that no one knows why our honey bees are dying out so rapidly (Source: Enzine).


Many of you asked us what you could do to stop this problem. Here we go:

Tell them that they can sign up for our newsletter or become friends of Silent Snow on Facebook or Twitter. On our worldmap you can see actions that are taking place in several countries.

My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my ex-boyfriend that broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet to search for help. I searched properly and I saw different reviews on Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via whats-app on (+2348167159012) and email. He gave me reason to live again and after He prepared the spell, He told me that my ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it that my ex-boyfriend really came back and our wedding will be held soon. Contact him now if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again I want to say I'm very grateful for your help
