What can you do personally?

Read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.

Spread the word.

Put pressure on politicians, and vote in those who respect science above profits.

Boycott the companies making these things, in particular Bayer-Monsanto.

However inconvenient it may be, refuse to use herbicides and pesticides, anywhere, in any circumstances.

Plant vegetation insects love. You can protect your vegies and ornamental plants from insects that like to share them with you in ways other than poisons.

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
