LOL, lighten-up mindfork, it appears you're taking my comments too seriously & personal. You may hold back on the character assassinations though.
You’ve said I’m “out of my mind” and I said you’re lazy. Hardly an assassination either way, but I will instead say that your arguments are lazy and you seem entirely unwilling to look at any information that might be outside of your belief system’s box.
As madthumb said, "Out of all the articles on this topic, why do we get the one from the dishonest whack-job stereotype perpetrators at Prison Planet?"
Although their writers are prone to exaggerate their own importance, sites like that provide news that you’re not going to get on CNN. But here are some bee death stories from everywhere else: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=bees+dying
I just don't buy into the load of crap that bees are the top of the food chain. They've been disappearing for years now. I don't see any shortage of food or flowers as there seemed to be plenty for easter.
That is an astoundingly ignorant and short-sighted statement. Here is a VERY SHORT piece on the importance of bees in the food chain written 10 years ago when they first started dying off, but in FAR less numbers than they are now. Read it then tell me what a “load of crap” bees are in the food chain. http://queenbeejan.com/beeseeds.htm
I’m probably wasting my words on you, and you probably won’t read it, but I keep holding onto hope that you’ll read something besides an IPCC report.
Interesting that the IPCC never mentioned anything about the bees. While I don't want to see any species die off, I'm more interested in the much larger picture beyond any one specific species.
It is precisely because your “larger picture” is coming exclusively from the IPCC that you have such a narrow view.
"Researchers at Bristol University have discovered that a mere 6 degrees of global warming was enough to wipe out up to 95 per cent of the species which were alive on earth at the end of the Permian period, 250 million years ago.
Yet the medieval warm period was warmer than that and everything survived.
United Nations scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predict up to 6 degrees of warming for the next 100 years if nothing is done about emissions of greenhouse gases, principally carbon dioxide, the chief cause of global warming.
Yet their only solutions are taxes…not actually doing anything productive, and they fail to address all of the other forms of pollution harming our planet.
