Subject:Emergency Bee Petition
Time:09:11 pm
Given how closely the government seems to be in bed with the chemical industry I doubt this will achieve much, but I suppose it's worth a shot.

Dear friend,

Have a look at this:
https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/emergency-bees-petition

Bees are crucial to our survival, they pollinate our foods and now they are in danger.

Environment minister Liz Truss has just approved use of bee-killing pesticides. It's no surprise - she's just been exposed holding cosy meetings with chemical industry lobbyists. If our environment minister won't protect bees, we need to turn the pressure onto David Cameron. He's her boss, and that means he has the power to overturn her decision.

Prime Minister David Cameron could stop these toxic chemicals before they are spread across our fields and wreak havoc on bees. But he'll only do it if enough of us pile on the pressure.

Please can you sign the emergency petition to Cameron now, asking him to overrule his minister and act to protect the bees?

Shouldn't that be "...thanks for all the nectar"?

Actually yes, it probably should. But never mind...

Signed. Used Man U's postal code since I'm in the States. (If I have to watch them all the time on NBC Sports; it's the least they can do.) :p

ETA: I don't have a Twitter account, though. :/

Me neither, nor Facebook etc. and they never ask people to mention it elsewhere.
