Our honey bees are disappearing and dying “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
– Albert Einsteinout on a massive scale that is never heard in the history, across the globe, more reportedly in Europe and the United States. This strange news has been reported many times in the recent several years. Our scientists are on it to decode this sudden mystery of bees disappearing from the face of our globe. Scientists aptly identified this calamity as “colony collapse disorder” (CCD).
It is reported that the bees simply fly away from their hives and never return; whether they are losing the track or direction and why they are doing so is a mystery. It is also reported that the honey in the abandoned hives remained untouched by other species – is another mystery. Is this that the honey produced by the bees is no more honey but poison?
One thing is very immediate and legitimate that the end of honey bees would spell the end of human species – if honey bees are not there our honey-moon on this earth is going to end soon for sure. If bees are not there, our entire plants and food chain are to end or evaporate abruptly. It is told that Albert Einstein long back rightly pointed out, “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
Whether the genetically modified crops are spelling the catastrophe for the bees; or is it due to the reckless pumping of pesticides and other toxins to harvest more; or some mites sucking the bees of their immunity – all these are the speculations that are taking rounds. And also, the less talked about aspect of mankind’s too much intrusion into the natural life style of bees and extreme artificial method of manipulated harvesting of bees to squeeze more honey and money might have caused the degradation of the divinity, dignity, immunity and beauty of the bees.
The extinction of the bees is just not a concern in terms of honey or money, but the very survival of human spaecies on this earth. Farmers are worried that there are no bees to pollinate their blooming crops. But the bigger worry or question is that there no more be any human species left on this earth to worry soon, if bees are not saved from our reckless activities. Save bees to save human beings, no other way. We can not eat iron ores and survive?
