Bees, Plankton, and Canaries: Who is to blame; Them or Us?
Should our bees go extinct in as few as ten years, as many experts suggest, so go the majority of our most loved and nutritious human foods, including many of our fruits, vegetables, oil crops, clovers and alfalfas for our livestock and a more. Bees pollinate one sixth of all flowering plants and about 400 agriculture plants. As one expert put it: without bees you had better love gruel, for that is what will remain for us.
Thankfully, for now it seems, Pasasdena is a haven for bees. There are wild bees everywhere. Let’s keep it that way shall we?
