Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), in which bee colonies mysteriously disappear but queen bees and immature bees remain, is thought to have caused the recent decline in the number of honeybees. Honeybees are often considered to be indirectly necessary for human survival because their pollination activities are responsible for the growth of an estimated one-third of all agricultural crops.
Since CCD was first identified in 2006, various bee colonies have experienced population declines of 30% to 90%, with no proven cause. This has sparked concern about the effects of the diminished bee population on humans. Many environmentalists fear that bee extinction would reduce the number of available crops and cause food scarcity worldwide.
More about bees:
It has been proven in France that the use of Monsanto's so-called pesticides have confused the bees, thus the bees cannot get home. Then the colony dies.
France and 28 more countries have kicked out Monsanto and others, but we in Canada and the USA refuse to because of the huge lobby Monsanto has in government. It must be stopped.
This is why Monsanto is now looking for a new name. Just like when everyone found out Agent Orange was not okay like they stated, after that they changed their name to Monsanto. Next.
