In today’s show originally broadcast on March 9 2017, TBR Radio’s Andrew Carrington Hitchcock interviews Frosty Wooldridge, to continue our series entitled, “The Environmental Effects Of Overpopulation Worldwide.”
Did you know that since 2006, honey bees have been dying by the tens of millions. Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), has wiped out some 10 million bee hives worth $2 billion over the past six years.
A beekeeper said, “Bees are vital to our lives as they are among the primary pollinators of our food plants. It has been deduced that if our native bees were to die out, the effect on crops and wild flowers would be utterly catastrophic. As these crops and flowers provide food for our wild and farm animals, we could easily lose up to a third of our regular diet. This is a very real problem, and one that is not getting the attention it needs.”
Bees and other pollinators allow humanity to thrive. Without them, we won’t survive the 21st century.
