G Living has been covering the very important story about the Worlds Bee populations dying at a very alarming rate. Entire colonies just die off, leaving bee keeps to come back to empty hives. A German theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world – the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops. But now a new story in the L.A. Times says the more likely answer is a fungus.

(summary of l.a.times.com article) A fungus that caused widespread loss of bee colonies in Europe and Asia may be playing a crucial role in the mysterious phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder that is wiping out bees across the United States, UC San Francisco researchers said Wednesday. But the results are "highly preliminary" and are from only a few hives from Le Grand in Merced County, UCSF biochemist Joe DeRisi said. Continue Reading / See Additional Photos

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.
