USDA, don’t suppress science

Do regulatory agencies suppress science? A top scientist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) — researching the impact of pesticides on bees — recently filed a whistleblower complaint alleging just that.
Tell USDA that suppressing science is unacceptable. Scientific integrity is the bedrock of sound policy decisions. 
Dr. Jonathan Lundgren worked at USDA's Agricultural Research Service lab in Brookings, South Dakota for 11 years. His peer-reviewed research on neonicotinoid pesticides (neonics), and their impact on pollinators, has been widely published and has received accolades from peers in his field. 
But apparently USDA didn’t like his findings, specifically that neonic coatings on seeds like corn and soy add little benefit to farmers — but cause big trouble for bees.
This is not the first time accusations of bee-related scientific censorship has come to light. Sign the petition and urge USDA to stop this pattern.
