France To Ban All Pesticides Amid Worldwide Bee Death Epidemic

France To Ban All Pesticides Amid Worldwide Bee Death EpidemicFrance have announced plans to completely ban the use of pesticides due to unusually high bee deaths worldwide, which French authorities claims pesticides are responsible for. 

Lawmakers have approved plans to ban some of the most popular pesticide products on the market, going above and beyond European Union requirements.

Reuters.com reports:

The EU limited the use of neonicotinoid chemicals, produced by companies including Bayer CropScience and Syngenta , two years ago after research pointed to risks for bees, which play a crucial role pollinating crops.

Crop chemical makers say the research blaming neonicotinoid pesticides is not backed up by field evidence and a global plunge in bee numbers in recent years is a complex phenomenon due to multiple factors.

The French outright ban on neonicotinoid pesticides was adopted by a narrow majority late on Thursday by France’s National Assembly as part of a draft bill on biodiversity that also contains an additional tax on palm oil.

The measure, however, would not come into effect until Sept. 1, 2018, later than the January 2017 deadline previously proposed by some lawmakers.

The ban also needs to be approved by the French Senate, which rejected it in a previous reading, before a final vote in the National Assembly which is expected in the middle of the year.
