US's Trump-controlled EPA is misusing the 'emergency' process to get sulfoxaflor approved because it's too toxic to make it through normal pesticide reviews; approves spraying 16 million acres of bee-attractive crops with a bee-killing pesticide in a time of global insect decline.

""The EPA is far too eager to find loopholes to approve harmful pesticides when it should be focusing on keeping people and wildlife safe from those pesticides," said Donley. "The routine abuse of emergency exemptions has to stop." said Nathan Donley, a senior scientist with the Center for Biological Diversity.
