“The trouble with bees. Their die-off is now global. If bees go, we all know, humans are in trouble. And a lot of bees have been going lately. Huge die-offs. Colony collapse. All over.
The bottom line issue, of course, is that bees pollinate a big chunk of the crops that feed us. In China now it’s gotten so bad they are hand-pollinating blossoms in orchards. Doing by human hand what billions of bees once did. Talk about unsustainable.”
