Bees going, going, gone? Maybe so, but…

Honey Bee Colony Collapse Disorder, In Context – MYRMECOS.
Drove through a series of posts on colony collapse disorder today as linked to cell phones today following the hoopla over a report on the matter a couple of weeks ago and ended up at this awesome post with a truly eye-opening graphic.  It turns out that maybe the bees aren’t suddenly dying off like the news stories would have us believe.  It turns out that the western honey bee population has been declining since World War II!  Who knew?  It’s definitely worth reading, so have a click.

Oh, and cell phones?  Seems unlikely that they’re killing bees or giving us brain cancer.
