Global warming enthusiasts tell us that we have a problem like no other. The best estimates of these experts warn that our descendants in 1,000 years will have an intractable problem that we should solve today.
The Oceans will be several feet higher. Idaho, Utah, and Arizona-Iowa, Michigan, and Illinois will have great surfing, and Washington D.C. will have to be moved inland. New Yorkers will exclusively live in the top floors of the new Atlantis.
There has been another danger, even more present, and drastic. Beehives colonies have been dying off in the U.S. in large numbers. They suffer from a condition called Colony Colapse Disorder (CCD). Scientists, not to be left unawares, have been relatively quietly addressing this problem with little press attention. They've studied the effects of mobile phone signals, parasites, and bacteria.
Bees are responsible for a large amount of pollination that takes place on Earth.
"A congressional study said honeybees add about $15 billion a year in value to the U.S. food supply. Among the crops to be affected are apples, nuts, avocados, soybeans, asparagus, broccoli, celery, squash, cucumbers, peaches, kiwi, cherries, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, cantaloupe and other melons.Einstein reckoned that mankind would have 4 years to live without bees.
The shortage will potentially affect the beef industry too because the growth of alfalfa is dependent on pollination from the bees."
Einstein was a smart man.
I'll tell you what I told my wife months ago. Scientists will fix it, and it appears that they now have a way to treat Hive colonies to immunize them against the effects of parasites using relatively simple methods employed by ancient African tribes 60,000 years ago.
My point is that if scientists can solve a clear and present danger like CCD, don't you think they can address a foggy and distant danger such as Global Warming?
