"If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would not remain that four years of life" Albert Einstein supported him, well aware of the crucial role of this insect in pollination and therefore in life.
For years, however, the bees are at risk, and now the main accused are pesticides, especially neonicotinoids, that Europe is trying to stem the crops that have the highest risk of exposure to bees, despite the clear protests of the chemical industry.
Bees are vital to the natural balance overall, but also for the power supply, which depends for more than a third from crops pollinated through the work of insects, bees in the first place. But rampant for years in Europe and North America, the so-called Colony Collapse Disorder, or the gradual die-off of bees, and one of the signs of the syndrome is the absence of dead bees in the hive.
Very happy to sign - thank you so much for this Cher
