The constant articles about extinction of species, pollutants and climate change are unnerving. One noteworthy problem that can affect the world food supply is the plight of a tiny insect the size of a fingernail -- the honey bee, which pollinates a high percentage of our food. The results of this pending extinction would be grim and serious. Pesticides are to blame and so I ask, why are such killers permitted?
I have an idea how to help the honeybee, and it is clean, easy and effective. It involves every village, town and city to establish a community project, to work with the USDA and bee experts to create a community beehive in a designated area, complete with beekeepers paid from the local tax base.
Indeed, such money would be used better than by updating a golf course or other unnecessary projects, of which there are far to many. A community project to protect the bee. Sounds practical, even honorable, and something to be proud of doing.
