The Death Of Bees Explained – Parasites, Poison and Humans

  • Published: 09 July 2015
  • In 2015 the bees are still dying in masses. Which at first seems not very important until you realize that one third of all food humans consume would disappear with them. Millions could starve. The foes bees face are truly horrifying – some are a direct consequence of human greed. We need to help our small buzzing friends or we will face extremely unpleasant consequences.

    Here's an idea! Give the pesticide companies a cut-off date and tell them that it's their responsibility to find an alternative (that has been approved by all sides), by that date or they are SOL. This ultimatum should be presented to the Oil Companies, as well. It's outright ridiculous that we allow a few individuals to go about making excuses, simply because of the short-term monetary gains their products provide, while there is sufficient scientific evidence to support the contrary.
    With that said, if they want to continue making money in that market, they should be the ones who provide a working solution. Otherwise, they'll just end up procrastinating, until it's much too late, all for the sake of making a few dollars more. Then, after they've filled their pockets, it will be left to us, our children and our children's children, to clean up the mess they've created (if it's even possible, by that point).

          over 25 species go extinct every day, this has been happening sense early earth it will continue to happen and something will continue to replace it! one day the earth will shake us and our arrogant beliefs off like a bad case of the fleas! we actually believe we are a threat to this planet, after it seeing ice ages, polar shifts, magnetic storms, volcano's, floods, meteor bombardments! it has seen worse than us! it has gotten rid of entire species before to fix itself! if you do not believe, that we are not a threat to the earth just go ask those people in Pompeii frozen like statues in place how they feel about it!

                    A bee is more than a yellow aggressive flying insect.
                    So why are bees being killed? Not the loathsome mosquito or the disgusting cockroach?

                            If all bees went extinct, that wouldn't be a big deal. Just get more OTHER pollinators. Surely it cant be that hard.
