“There are lots of shill reports out there with liars saying left and right that the bee problem is worldwide. That is a LIE, a lie laid waste by simply checking the commodities index and seeing who produces what, and what producers are saying. They all know that America is toast when it comes to honey production. They all know America’s bees are dying.”
I was on the topic of honey the other day, and figured out a great way to circumvent any possible inaccuracies in the truth movement with regard to GMO’s and colony collapse disorder.
Many have blamed the decline in bee populations on cell towers, saying that the bees get confused or agitated by the emissions cell phones and their towers produce. It would all be plausible, BUT
Cell phones are now all over the world at a very high density, and when I checked up on where the bees were dying off, it was real and ONLY IN AMERICA. Not Canada, Mexico, China, Japan, the bees are dying off in America, sometimes up to 80 percent. And they are dying far away from population centers, in the heart of the agricultural zones where cell towers would have minimum impact. I found this out by checking the commodities pricing of honey on a historic basis. China, India, Canada and Argentina are booming and seeing absolutely no bee problems. Brazil is having troubles, but this is directly attributable to a killer bee invasion, and killer bees produce very little honey which is subsequently hard to get anyway.
If anyone uses the commodities pricing approach to finding out the truth about the bees, they will be quickly faced with the hard facts – that America has indeed become greatly diminished in the honey sector where it once dominated, and the only reason why the price of honey has remained stable is because China, Europe, India, Canada and Argentina picked up the slack and replaced America as a source because their bees are having no problems at all.
I believe that since all nations have for the most part banned the growing of GMO crops (Mexico just joined the list) all the while America is full steam ahead with GMO, and that since all nations have just as many cell phones and towers now as America does, that it is not radio emissions that are killing the bees, it is in fact GMO proteins and sugars from GMO plants that are programmed to self produce pesticides that are killing the bees. And the Monarch butterfly is doing just as badly as the bees, a butterfly which is almost completely American in origin. There has to be a reason why the bees and the Monarchs are both dying off in America, and the bees are fine everywhere else, and the reason is America specific. THAT would be GMO.
CONGRESSIONAL RECORD: honey bees in the United States will cease to exist by 2035. Folks, this is a link to the congressional record which contains that exact quote. America is getting screwed, and someone at the top KNOWS IT.
- Excerpt from May R. Berenbaum at the Subcommittee on Horticulture and Organic Agriculture, US Congress March 29, 2007: “… Since 1947, the National Agricultural Statistics Service has conducted an annual survey of honey bees and conducts a census every five years, but the focus of data collection has been honey production and not pollination. This was appropriate 60 years ago, but today the value of pollination greatly exceeds the volume of honey production. Nor do these surveys consider colony health. The magnitude of decline in honey bee abundance and efficacy, despite six decades of data collection, cannot be definitively evaluated. Bee health is utterly critical here. CCD is just the most recent of an unrelenting series of devastating problems affecting American honey bees. Introduced pests and parasites, microbial diseases, pesticide drifts and competition with Africanized bees have all contributed to the decline since assessments began. Shortages were sufficiently acute that in 2005, for the first time in 85 years, since passage of the Honey Bee Act of 1922, bees were imported from outside the United States to meet pollination demand. Importing bees is risky and it increases the chances of introducing new pests and parasites. Even before CCD, we estimated, if honey bee numbers continued to decline at the rates documented from 1989 to 1996, managed honey bees in the United States will cease to exist by 2035. Historically, wild honey bees have provided pollination for both natural and managed plant communities. Parasite infestations have eliminated wild colonies in many areas, but without any systematic monitoring, there is no way to know how many are left. …”]
