    Einstein didn’t say that.

    Are you sure? If he didn’t who did?

    Actually, I’ve noticed more honey bees than normal last year. Honey bee populations are up worldwide, not down.

    Where did you find that information? Or is that just your humble observation?

    I also noticed a huge increase in my neighborhood. In fact, it was necessary to remove them in two areas.

    Actually, the increase in “honey bees” you’ve seen recently are not actually honey bees, but are in fact a different breeds of wasps. Most of the wasps don’t pollinate the same way that honey bees do, which is why the decline of honey bees in particular is so important.

    It’s unfortunate that one of the best insects, of great help to mankind, is affected. One wonders why insects like mosquitoes and cockroaches do not get such infection!

    Anytime you use the same old global warming BS, (only now with added harsh winters added) you are either an idiot or you are on somebodies payoff list. So cut the crap and shut up!

    Sam, while it is probable that Einstein was not the source of that quote (based on a simple search) it doesn’t change the seriousness of the drop in bee populations in North America and Europe. They do pollinate a large number of vital crops.

    Chuck and Dean. Wow. You discount the seriousness of the declining bee populations in North America and Europe because (Chuck) apparently does a scientific measurement of bee populations in his backyard and extends it to the entire continent and (Dean) a foolish attribution of the author to global warming as a cause removes all accuracy of the article in your eyes.

    DOMESTIC bee populations are up world-wide, but down in North America and Europe. The rise is mostly due to South America and Asia increasing colonies to produce crops that need pollination. Wild bee populations are declining world-wide and that is a hit on diversity that is not good.

    Global warming is psuedo-science, that has become a political football, and so has no place in the article, but it doesn’t negate the fact that declining bee populations are a problem for mankind. Perhaps natural climate change is partially responsible. Something to be considered as a contributing cause.

    I don’t neccessarily believe the theory of global warming, but a couple of you guys are being a little harsh on the lady.

    No one seems to mention genetically modified crops when discussing bee population decline. As I understand it various plants and crops are genetically modified to make them injurious to insects that may attack them (i.e. insects feed on the crop and the modified plants affect such things as insect reproductive cycles, immune systems etc.). It therefore stands to reason that those modified genes will be present in the pollen collected and used by the bees (which are insects), so weakening their ability to resist many of the natural pathogens that they have been in balance with for millennia.

    Good point, Richard.

    That is exactly correct, and now GMO crops have to have aerial spray (crop dusters), and the overspray is incredible and affects mankind, from bees to ground water pollution. The GMO kills insects as they feed on the crops. Mankind is destroying itself.

    Honey bees are not native to North America.

    Perhaps DARPA/Raytheon/The US Military should stop their demonic Geoengineering spraying of the planet. I live on the Monterey Coast…”The Salad Bowl of the World’ where they chem-spray constantly… It has multiple negative effects on all living things.
