Re: E-M:/ RE: / Honey Bee Colony Collapse Disorder

Here is another possible reason. I wonder how many people would hang on to thier cell phones even in the midst of mass starvation.
It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world's harvests fail.
They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world - the abrupt disappearance of the bees that pollinate crops.

We have one hive that has been an extravagant producer for two summers.
Early last fall the numbers in the hive seemed down but the queen was still
active. No bees came out during the January thaw but we figured that was
related to the warm weather we had had. This spring: no bees: no bodies.
