In 2010, bee colonies recovered after neonicotinoids ban

It looks like Italy banned neonicotinoids in 2009 and by 2010, the bee colonies had started to recover. Here’s a link for more information:

This seems like pretty definitive proof to me.

Am I missing something or does it seem like the EPA is really dropping the ball here ?

The only thing I can think of is that the higher ups in the EPA are more concerned about their careers after they leave the EPA than they are about doing their current jobs with courage and integrity.

Here’s a quote by Upton Sinclair which I think may be relevant here:

It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!

In this case, let’s modify the quote a bit, to “It is difficult to get a person to understand something when his/her future salary/career depends upon them not understanding it !”

Feel free to post if you have a less cynical explanation for what’s going on with the EPA with regard to bees and neonicotinoids..
