Are cell phones wiping out our bees?

461588835 9c73deb8b1 b Are cell phones wiping out our bees?

G Living has been reporting about the ongoing mystery of the mass disappearance and collapse of the honeybees. Now scientists finally have a theory and small study to back it up as to why it is happening, and it is not a hopeful one at all. This is yet just another illustration of how we are the cause and the effect is mass collapse and destruction of nature and her delicate and finely balanced interdependent homeostasis. Einstein even said that if the bees disappeared, man would only have four years left of life before we disappeared as well.

It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world’s harvests fail. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Media Watch | Scientist Expose The Long Term Damage Hunting Causes To The Wolves Populations

<a href="http://www.joost.com/272ijb8/t/The-Natural-Kingdom-Collection-Language-of-Wolves">The Natural Kingdom Collection-Language of Wolves</a>

As we reported a few weeks ago, the Wolves of America are once again in the cross hairs of hunters. There are currently a mere 9,000 wolves living within the entire United States, which was enough to have them removed from the Endangered Species list. Opening up the option for hunters to start shooting them. We thought it might be a good idea to embed this show from The Natural Kingdom Collection about Wolves, to enable us to all know a little more about their lives.

Three of the world’s leading experts share their intimate understanding of wolf behavior. John and Mary Theberge and Michael Runtz have spent a lifetime studying wolves and in particular, wolf language. Against the magnificent natural backdrop of one of the world’s greatest parks, we learn the nuances of wolf language and, in turn, perhaps better understand what they might be saying to each other.

Wildlife Slaughter in Zimbabwe

HARARE, ZIMBABWE The economic chaos engulfing Zimbabwe is decimating the country’s once teeming wildlife, according to a conservation group, which painted a grim picture of nature reserves staffed by poorly trained rangers who cruelly kill the animals they are meant to protect.

In one case, rangers pumped at least 40 bullets into an elephant suspected of encroaching on a settlement in remote northwestern Zimbabwe, said the independent Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force in a report released Tuesday.

What are we REALLY doing to our oceans?

ocean8 What are we REALLY doing to our oceans?

By Boise Thomas

Now I am getting upset. A great man once said, Human beings cannot correct problems he creates, for if he could see he was about to cause a problem, he would stop if before it needed the solution.? Or something like that. The point is, we are doing things that are seemingly irreversible. Most of us know what we have done to our air with the advent of the automobile and the petroleum fueled engine. It was created to get rid of the problem called, the streets smell like horse dung.? Thus it was deemed the horseless carriage and horsepower is still the way we measure an autos speed. What has me go off on this topic today??? In reading the ocean reports published in the Los Angeles Times (July 30-Aug 4, 2006) I am informed, upset and educated. Not my favorite mix but the news is alarming.
