Using imidacloprid as an example, Dutch toxicologist Dr. Henk Tennekes reports on the hazards of imidacloprid to insects and birds.

A disaster in the making eine Katastrophe bahnt sich an
Un désastre en cours Een ramp in de maak


We are witnessing an ecological collapse in all the wildlife that used to live in fields, hedgerows, ponds and streams. All the common species we knew as children are being wiped from the face of the countryside.

Graham White, environmental author

This book dwarfs Rachel Carson’s "Silent Spring". The statistics are horrendous as page by page the demise of the flora and fauna of the natural ecosystems of Europe and the UK is systematically documented.
