2,100 sq. miles of great salt lake have disappeared. Its the
Breeding ground for the pelican and millions of birds.
Perhaps we should not have siphoned all its fresh water tributaries./

Care to explain why?

Normally I'd agree, thought it depends on the poster - one way or the other. And the link target: in the case of a BBC programme link you know there will be a summary of the content, and a 'read more' or 'programme page' link with fuller information.

Anyway, there's an eclectic list of subjects for this this series of 15 minute programmes, including Margaret Thatcher (who was of course a chemist) and Joni Mitchell.

I think it's helpful, and good form, to add a brief note about what a link will give you. No agenda this end, just a point I've made many times before.

No, I have no agenda other than being over-cautious. I just stick to that rule. If further posts indicate that the link is OK and worth reading, I may go back and click on it.

The link in the second post contains relevant information and the link also tells you what it is about. That's much better.

A good, well-presented, programme. Certainly worth listening to, even if, like me, you think you know about Rachel Carson and 'Silent Spring'.

Kennedy did convene a panel of experts to advise - he didn't just decide himself. But he was obviously open to the facts. One difference - then and now - was that big-business were not expecting to be challenged. Now they've got a vast lobbying aparatus in place and have MPs - particularly Tory ones - on their payrolls.

Talking of which, neonicotinoids were mentioned:
Bad news for bees: [UK] Government reverses ban on bee-killing neonicotinoids

And then there's glyphosate:
Glyphosate - the Debate

The number of beehives in Britain’s cities is growing rapidly, putting pressure on native bees ‘that really need our help’, say scientists and experienced beekeepers.

“Dinosaurs, robots and honeybees. I don’t know why, but everyone is fascinated,” says Richard Glassborow, chair of the London Beekeepers’ Association (LBKA). When it comes to beekeeping, what was once a niche hobby has flourished, especially in Britain’s cities.

But there is growing concern from scientists and experienced beekeepers that the vast numbers of honeybees, combined with a lack of pollinator-friendly spaces, could be jeopardising the health and even survival of some of about 6,000 wild pollinators across the UK. Last year, Kew Gardens’ State of the World’s Plant and Fungi report warned: “Campaigns encouraging people to save bees have resulted in an unsustainable proliferation in urban beekeeping. This approach only saves one species of bee, the honeybee, with no regard for how honeybees interact with other, native species.”

The Guardian
