So, I left class early before the viewing of the Vanishing of the Bees documentary. However, I know enough about this issue to understand the problem: bee population drops, humans are screwed due to lack of pollinators.
A quick Google search, however, led me to this — a post discussing how three different scientific studies have pointed towards a specific type of pesticide that’s killing off the bee population.
So, by trying to save our crops, we’re actually dooming them. Man, we just can’t do anything right, can we?
In all seriousness, there has to be a better pest control solution that doesn’t kill off species that we do need. I’m not the biggest consumer of organic products, but I can see the reasoning behind buying them.
