" For 200 years we've been conquering Nature. Now we're beating her to death. " (Tom McMillan (*1945, Canada)) -- we are currently exterminating more than 100 species PER DAY, and keep (increasingly) polluting Earth (chemically & electromagnetically, and...) -- clearly an unexplainable mystery when (e.g.) honeybees are not doing so well.

Decline in honey bees and insect species will also lead to the decline of the human race. Monsanto, it's pesticides and GM crops are at the forefront of our woes......

Population growth certainly has its impact on the environment.

It's well knows that if insects disappear, life disapears. It's a tragedy what's happening to bees and of course this must be breaking the pollution cycle and the consequences will be devastating.

Saw just one bee, darting among the blooms of one of my plum trees yesterday! Worried.

Too many pesticides are being spread about all over the planet...this is not only effecting bees
butterflies and other benificial insects are dying off as well.

"The mysterious collapse of honey-bee colonies is becoming a global phenomenon, scientists working for the United Nations have revealed" I have never been a great admirer of the UN nor of its tame band of overpaid scientists but even by their standards, arenít they joining the party somewhat belatedly? We have known for a long time that bright lights, mono culture, insecticides, herbicides and loss of habitat all play their part and are all man-made and do not just effect bees but the whole of the insect world. Why the mystery? UN we pay you enough so wakey, wakey!
