I would like to comment briefly on "Disappearing Bees
and Reluctant Regulators." Although I commend the authors for speaking out, there is a serious error of assumption, I believe, and that is that we have a regulatory system that actually works.
(8.) Save the disappearing bees
. Available at: www.burtsbees.com.
Night Shyamalan's The Happening, which opens this month, features disappearing bees
as the precursor to a worldwide environmental disaster.
Not mentioned as well was the fact that the disappearing bees
are actually hyper-bred varieties that we coax into a larger than normal body size; that they are fed antibiotics and trucked from vineyard to vineyard.
