UK Scientists Respond after Criticism over Bee Deaths

Amid a situation where UK Government has showed its displeasure over the asked ban over pesticides because of the declining bee population, a controversial arena has been created. Responding to this situation, UK scientists have rebuked the government of defaming science today.

This is in context to a thorough study that was conducted by UK Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera). According to the authors of this study, certain nerve agent pesticides have been responsible for declining bee population.

However, the government has said that there are good amount of loopholes in study. This has raised doubts in the government's head regarding introduction of ban on pesticides.

Professor David Goulson, a bee researcher at the University of Sussex has suggested that he fails to comprehend the fact that the government has been adamant over introduction of ban.

According to Dr. Christopher Connolly, a researcher on neonicitinoids at the University of Dundee, "This study is so seriously flawed it's meaningless and it is unfair of Defra to flaunt this research over other studies. I don't think it should be able to be presented to the public until it is peer-reviewed".

The controversy regarding the bee deaths is reaching a point where discussions have to follow.
