Just wanted to state that I concur it appears we have a serious problem with the bees. Again, I don't see it as an "either-or" proposition. We have trouble on multiple fronts.
I just told Acharya I wouldn’t drag GW into this thread…oh well.
GW isn't causing the bees to die. If you look at a real temperature graph that wasn't manipulated by the UN's IPCC to get rid of the medieval warm period, such as this one, you will see that our ecosystem was fine at a higher temperature than we have now:

Bees, polar bears and the rest of the species on our planet survived the medieval warm period just fine. Simple logic would deduce that it is something OTHER than CO2 and warming killing the bees. Pesticides and GMO are the most likely suspects and the German research agrees.
Any effort to preserve honeybess is FAR from foolish, and automatically assuming that GW is the “root problem” of their deaths just shows a lack of critical thinking.
But I would prefer to keep the GW debate in the other thread where we have already been hashing it out: http://forums.truthbeknown.com/viewtopi ... =3465#3465
