Letter to the editor: Article on the impact of pesticides was appreciated

Kudos to the Addison Independent for their front-page, in depth, article “Pesticides threatening pollinators.

I was shocked, angry and deeply saddened to read how dire the situation is and how little is being done. It was interesting to read how Europe is taking far more precautions than the United States. Surely we can do better, at least here in Vermont.

I hope you will continue to keep us informed and, if possible, offer suggestions of how we might pressure the legislature to pass a bill to curb the use of neonicotinoids. Before it’s too late.
