  • Title:
    Bees, lies and evidence-based policy
  • Author: Dicks, Lynn
  • Description: [...]although there have been dramatic falls in the numbers of managed honey bee Apis mellifera colonies in some countries, it remains a widespread and common bee, not in imminent danger of extinction. The 1987 Montreal Protocol that banned chlorofluorocarbons to protect the ozone layer is commonly held up as a shining example of a rapid policy response to emerging science. [...]because of such reports, and a recent risk assessment from the European Food Safety Authority, we can be fairly sure that the decision on whether to restrict neonicotinoid use in Europe will not be made on the basis of avoiding 20% yield losses in crops, or saving the world's bees from extinction.
