No. 97, Sept. 12, 2019

Hello Revelator readers,

Scientists are warning about a second “Silent Spring” after a new study found that U.S. agriculture is 48 times more toxic to insects than it was 20 years ago, mostly due to neonicotinoid insecticides. That’s bad news for bees and so many other insects — not to mention humans. Read more about this toxic threat, including one way we could solve it.

The Trump administration continues its deregulatory agenda, going so far lately that even affected industries disagree with some of what’s being deregulated.

Forest-conservation techniques often fail to incorporate knowledge from native peoples. Our latest essay explores why understanding subsistence hunting in the Amazon and other regions may be essential to forest management.

A lot of people get their news from YouTube these days, but many online videos contain disinformation about climate science. Scientists can help fix that.
