Compilation: Mass bee die-off and the Global Climate EMERGENCY

The indispensable pollinators of a lot of our food and linchpins in the interconnectedness of our insane, unsustainable system of global agriculture are in peril RIGHT NOW.

Nutshell

Indispensable pollinators of a lot of our food, bees are linchpins within the interconnectedness of our insane, unsustainable system of global industrial agriculture — perhaps, even, to human survival.

They pollinate more than 70 of the 100 crops that provide 90% of the world’s food.

And they’re dying in droves RIGHT NOW.

Causes appear to be a complex confluence of factors

Albert Einstein is often said to have stated:

“If the bee disappears from the surface of the Earth, man would have no more than four years to live.”

This article takes issue with the attribution of the quote to Einstein, but details why such a warning would not be far from the truth in the catastrophic event of a bee-less world.

Obvious short-term responses

Reality

Difficult as it is to communicate, absorb and process, let alone accept, a much bigger picture must be faced. And there’s no time — NONE — to spare.

Our shared atmosphere is on an accelerating course to reach a state of potentially unsurvivable, global climate extremes during the lives of today’s children. (See: Compilation: +4C by 2060s or sooner catastrophic / incompatible with organized civilization.)

No less than the fate of all generations of all peoples and most species (bees included) hangs in the balance RIGHT NOW.  And only emergency international action at emergency (world war-time) speed FAST *may be* proportional enough to confront the scale, scope and urgency of what is already the greatest crime against humanity, most life and most future life EVER.
