While individual opinion may vary, some seeing bees as a nuisance with the potential to sting them, I think most understand their niche in the ecosystem as essential pollinators – without them we would be in trouble, big trouble.
Most also have become aware of the die off that is taking place, this is undeniably the result of man made toxins and pesticides.
America seems to have become the testing lab and dumping ground for any and all manner of toxins that science can devise, while other countries take a more enlightened approach even to the point of banning American products and GMO tainted foods.
Greed is not a valid reason for threatening the very existence of life on this planet, nor is political influence and favoritism – Biochemical companies like Monsanto and Bayer pose a very really threat to every living thing on the face of this planet, a threat motivated solely by greed.
They don’t know best, whatever “supporting science” they may advance to validate their greed is self serving, and they should be confronted at every turn.
