My Take - It's time to stop pandering to people who can't be appeased. We need to stand on a solid foundation of facts and challenge anyone who attempts to undermine who we are and what we do, and not let fraudulent "scientific" studies be a road block to reality.
We don't need politics! We need to stand up on our hind legs and defend ourselves, draw a line in the sand and clearly state “you will go no further”. We don’t yet know what clabber the White House will spew out, but anyone who thinks it’s going to be rational hasn’t been reading Paradigms and Demographics. If I’m wrong I will be happily surprised. However, this whole White House initiative isn’t about bees or any other pollinator. It’s about power and unrestricted land grabs, and I find it difficult to see them changing course now, no matter how much information is presented showing there’s no crisis, and there’s no need to “create habitat” for either birds, bees, bats or butterflies.
