Hey all, figured I’d blog about something interesting that caught my attention. I wish to share with you a danger even greater then that of global warming.

Honeybee is extracting nectar

If there is no bee extracting the nectar from the many plants we use then we’ll be done for!

Some questions:

Do you believe we should be alarmed about this? Are we in danger for the recent future? Or is this something you’ll think will trouble us only in some 20 years or so?
