It'll bee okay. Honey.

Actually, the whole "colony collapse" phenomenon does disturb me. Bees rule. They give (pollination, honey, buzzing, Bumblebee Man) and take (home invasion, stinging, think they're better than us). We would be screwed without them, without a doubt. At least that's the buzz.

The article about the 500 blackbirds dying also says:

"Slota also declined to speculate on a cause for the deaths, but he said a search of USGS records shows there have been 16 events in the past 30 years involving blackbirds where at least 1,000 of the birds have died seemingly all at once. “These large events do take place,” he said. “It’s not terribly unusual.”"

not terribly unusual in terms of frequency is one thing, not terribly unusual as in "raining dead birds" is an entirely different one.

The human race is so genious, yet we don't know why these things are happening...nonetheless, if we are as a human race are not causing it somehow I have to think everything will work out. Not saying its guaranteed it will, but humans have been around for quite a while and we have absorbed many different changes in many different ways. If birds and fish are dying off like mad, maybe the bird/fish population is balancing out naturally from being too high...? Doesn't nature usually tend to work these things out.

Well if those damn green pigs would stop stealing all the eggs, maybe we would have less dead birds.

Called it a few years back.  Disturbing that we can't do anything about it.

Pretty much, we just have too many humans;   7 BILLION at this point.  In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now.

http://www.worldomet...rld-population/

 

 So obviously most animals need to go first.  Humans are the dominant species, so they get the food, shelter, land, etc.

 

Plus, more humans= more energy consumption because everyone needz their internetz.

 

Add in global warming, loss of land, increasing temperature,  water droughts ( already starting).

 

Eventually, either the world won't be able to sustain us because there will be too many people  and/or humans society will have to adapt (hopefully).

And THIS is why I don't want my own biological children. If I DO have children, it's adoption or bust. I just don't see the need to breed when there are countless kids in need of a good home. It's the same view I have about dogs. Why buy from a breeder when there are tons of dogs in pounds, just waiting to be put to sleep?

Well, I guess there's more and more news about the 6th extinction...

Hopefully we can turn it all around for our children.
