I’ll be honest, I don’t understand how – to quote the article – “regulators around the world have falsely assumed that it is safe to use pesticides at industrial scales across landscapes and that the “effects of dosing whole landscapes with chemicals have been largely ignored”.”

I really thought the world ‘got it’ back in the 1960s and 70s, when DDT was banned. Here we are again, surprised that insects are dying when we spray insecticides. Pardon?
