German farmers spray a total of 40,000 tonnes of pesticides every year to combat insects, weeds and fungal infections. As a result there's less and less for birds to eat. It's high time for conservation-centered agriculture!
We might not love creepy-crawlies, but if insects were to vanish within a century, as some scientists predict, there would be dire consequences for us humans. Is it too late to save bees, bugs and butterflies?
As spring begins we can hear the birds returning from winter. But why do they migrate? Are they coming back early this year? And why are they so loud?
Glyphosate, the world's most widely used weed killer, has caused concerns over its potential risk to human health and the environment for decades. Now, new research shows that glyphosate may be indirectly killing bees.
After a gardener was awarded $289 million for cancer he said was a result of exposure to Roundup weed killer, Monsanto still denies the health risks of glyphosate — in everything from kids' cereal to the air we breathe.
