Where Have All The Bees Gone?

I would like to talk to the class today about the environment. Iknow, I know, you have heard all the arguments about warming and yada yada. I want to talk about honey bees. For you city dwellers that is those little orange and black flying insects that irritate you on a picnic.

Recently a report was issued that said whole hives across the US were dying leaving few alive. Why? here is where it gets good--warming has been blamed, pesticide and now, the best cel phones. The EM pulse emitted by cel phones supposedly interfers with their systems. Personally, I do not give a SH*T which theory you may want to believe. The simple fact is they are disappearing. Why would you care? IMO, the honey bee is one of the most important speicies on the planet. Without the bees there will be few crops, without crops there will be hunger, with hunger there will be deaths. So you see bees are VERY important to mankind.

As one who grows some of his own food, this year there have been few bees, not a good sign.

As I have said, you may choose to belief whatever theory or conspiracy you choose, but it will make no difference for without the bees mankind will suffer and die.

Once it becomes an epedemic and you seat quietly and listen--you will hear Mother Nature saying--"CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW"?

Anyone who takes the time to listen should hear mother nature crying. Remember that commercial from the 70's with the Indian crying? That always had an effect on me. But, in this day and age, people are mostly concerned about things other than our environment. Talk is cheap. Actions speak louder than words.

By the time the planet craps out I will be dead--but I will be watching and amuse myself at all the scrambling by people to save a dying world.

If the predictions are true, the food supply will be drying up in 25 yrs, deserts will claim morer and more land and water will be gone.

The world will look like one of those B grade movies about a ruined world.
