Of course the government is going to say there's insufficient evidence to say insecticides/pesticides are to blame for the bee die-off. They're in the bottomless pockets of Monsanto, the largest poison producer on the planet. Not only do they poison plants and insect, but animals and people, too. No way would the government bite the hand that feeds them so copiously.

We eat animals that are give fast growth chemistry, out of our sight, which eventually leads to our death. Bees likely have similar chemistry induced death.

I'm sure it's global warming....or is it global cooling? I can't remember because it changes.

bknow - It is climate change and you would not take this so lightly if you understood what bee die off really means to the planets population. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately. No bees means no pollination which means no food. Of course we could all learn to live only on corn which does not require bees...That would shorten up our life span and that of all other animals. Guess it would take care of over populating the planet
