    Just this week officials in United Kingdom have begun to move against pesticides that have altered the bee population in serious ways. Lest we think this is should be a low priority in the face of all the world disasters we have read about in the past few months, more needs to be done. Standing still won't work.

    The bee population has been dwindling worldwide and naturalists and environmentalists have been puzzled. This year however a complex story began to emerge. Bees are dying from epidemic diseases that strike their populations; being vulnerable to these diseases results from continued exposure to pesticides. The ability of bees to reproduce is affected in the same way.

    The consequences of this may turn out to be drastic. Without bees to carry pollen from one plant to another, plants cannot reproduce. Crops fail. The result is worldwide food shortages and famine. Countries most affected by crop failure will have to compete with a larger number of nations all bidding for food staples from a decreasing number of food producers.

    Recent kill-offs have been huge. In one incident, after fruit trees bordering a parking lot in Oregon state were sprayed with pesticide, an estimated 25,000 bees died.

    We are also part of natural creation where like bees, only the fit will survive. Poor nations will suffer the most.

    Below is a petition that you may want to sign. Thank you!
