Bayer suing European Commission to overturn Ban

A friend of mine just sent me this story on Bayer and Syngenta claiming the ban on bee killing pesticides is unjustified:

There is a petition to sign as well, if you're interested. Maybe this story should also go in General as there may be other people who feel as strongly about saving the bees.

was reading that the other day... whatever way you look at it, big agri-chem is lobbying too hard to ever lose their grip. A few years back, France banned a certain seed, and Brussels (yes, "Europe") overturned the ban, decreeing that it was no longer possible for a state of Europe to ban anything without first going to Europe for consent. Soverign states, my butt.
