The Death Of Bees Explained – Parasites, Poison and Humans

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

Close

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.

Mick Carson says:

Blame the population explosion, industrialization and pollution globally. Lets start pointing our fingers at the scientists who first they made all the poison that brought us to this technology, chemistry and poisons manufactures. Let's start with Monsanto, where people though what they were doing was great without a hint of consideration that they were actually contributing to environmental disasters (remember DDT?), and now we can see the result of our own doing, a damaged environment through greed and carelessness. Show me how many give a fuck about the state our planet is with all the ongoing destruction that goes on today. Have a look at China's encroachment in other parts of the world to build and destroy other countries by deforestation, mining, building dams and bridges, not to mention the heavily industrialized cities of their own and the shocking pollution that some days it's like fog in Summer.

We've gotten to the point in our society where the all of the problems we face are self inflicted.
