[CNET] Are mobile phones causing the decline in bee numbers? - Page 3

post #21 of 44
Bees extinct = a lot of things die = we would be greatly effected as well (might as well die eventually) imo.

No bees, no pollination= limited plant life=no herbivores=no carnivores.

Yeah, eventually it could trigger a domino effect of mass extinction. I'm sure we would circumvent this if it ever came down to it though. It wouldn't be the preferred method of course, but we could "fix" it I am sure....at a huge cost.

Thing is animals evolve over a very long period of time. This is all happening very quickly and is very devastating. I doubt bees could adapt quickly enough.

I hope it is something else because there is no way people will give up their phones.

This. There's nothing 'natural' about the selection process here and given the rapid adoption of cell phone technology there is really no opportunity for the bees to adapt. I really hope something can be done about this because otherwise not only honey but much of the fruit and veg we consume is gonna start becoming VERY expensive to produce.

Well of course the bees are distressed, there's a freaking cell phone inside their hive!

Can't believe nobody noticed that yet
