Bee Story Monday


Echoing charges made by conservation organizations, a new report from the Government Accountability Office finds that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) need to step up their actions in order to protect bees.

The report, released to the public on Friday, was based on assessments from October 2014 to February 2016.

The report found that the USDA, “which co-chairs the White House Pollinator Health Task Force with EPA, has not worked with its partners on the task force to coordinate a native bee monitoring plan,” and that its efforts to promote bee habitat conservation may be thwarted by gaps in research and evaluation.

The EPA, meanwhile, has suffered from challenges in data collection and reporting on bee kill incidents that may be linked to pesticides, while its risk assessment guidance “does not call for EPA to assess the risks that pesticide mixtures may pose to bees.”

    Here’s a thing: my eyes are now old so I see things. I’ll suddenly see a light to the right of me, if I look nothing is really there. I see black shapes, like the shapes in “Ghost” that dragged bad people into hell. Kind of scary at first when I was out walking in the dark, but I realized it was just my stupid eyes. I see a bright light while walking at night, it’s someone’s mercury vapor light beyond the trees that my eye grabbed, but then showed it to me in the side of my eye. It’s all really weird, I hate it but it’s what happens when one ages, it’s what’s happening to me as I age. That last eye exam, the doc said I had the start of macular degeneration. Maybe what I described is what happens as one goes blind. 😦
