There's a new NPR piece on what's killing bees, and it's quite good from the standpoint that it addresses the longstanding decline in honeybees that dates back to WWII. And surprise, surprise, it's mostly what I've been saying all along.
Logically, though, we need tens of millions of dollars of research to do the equivalent of sticking our fingers in our ears and shouting "lalalalalalala" while looking for "mysterious" and "hidden" causes of bee declines when they are staring us right in the face.
Definitely worth a listen. You heard it here first.
