On 31 October 2019 The Guardian reported:
Common pesticides found to starve fish 'astoundingly fast' by killing aquatic insects. The Silent Spring prophecy that pesticides could 'still the leaping of fish' has been confirmed, according to scientists investigating the collapse of fisheries in Japan. They say similar impacts are likely to have occurred around the world. The long-term study showed an immediate plunge in insect and plankton numbers in a large lake after the introduction of neonicotinoid pesticides to rice paddies. This was rapidly followed by the collapse of smelt and eel populations, which had been stable for decades but rely on the tiny creatures for food.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern science systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
... Rachel Carson wrote 'Silent Spring', her seminal book on the dangers of pesticides in 1962. ... Prof Olaf Jensen, at Rutgers University in the US and not part of the research team, said: 'This study, although observational, presents compelling evidence. A fishery that was sustainable for decades collapsed within a year after farmers began using neonicotinoids. This is a large and astoundingly fast response.'
