When the bees die, in four years we will die. ~ Albert Einstein
Bee Colony Collapse – Anything that centrally affects the global food chain has the ability to cascade across all species, rapidly collapsing the dominoes until it reaches the species sitting at the top. Also known as Colony Collapse Disorder, an increasing body of evidence points to the effects of pesticides as a main culprit leading to bees evacuating their colonies, while genetic engineering also has raised concern among experts such as Jeffrey Smith. In fact, Monsanto has been implicated, and perhaps as a hedge Monsanto has bought one of the leading bee research firms. However, buying “experts” to deny what is happening is not going to change reality.
76% of all food production and 84% of plant species rely on bees for pollination to nourish the “food circle of life.”
