The Public Lives of Bees

They say the bees are dying, possibly entirely because of stupid Monsanto and their stupid, pesticidal stupidness.

I don't know if that's true, but we've definitely seen extremely low pollination rates in our garden this year, and the Monsanto-mindset has absolutely contributed to that.

Yet another super-sucky bit of modern-day suckiness, and all I can say is that after our agricultural system collapses and the majority of the human population starves to death, there probably won't be enough of an unthinking consumer base around anymore to prop up agribusiness. So... silver lining?

Except for I don't want to starve, and I don't want my family to starve, and I don't want you to starve, out there in internet-land. So how about we maybe do something about this? It's only been, what, fifty/sixty years we've been violating our ecology in this way. I'll bet in another fifty, we could clean this bad boy right up.

Whaddaya say?
