News headlines are often sensational and they are sensational for a good reason. No one will buy a paper or magazine if the news is not sensational. Having just stated the obvious, I wish to draw your attention to an article that appeared in the German Magazine Spiegel. This article explores the connection between the possible destruction of the commercial bee industry in Europe and the USA and cell phones. After you read the entire article, you find that cell phones are just one of several possible explanations for the death of up to 20% of the commercial bees in Europe and the USA. Other reasons range from inbreeding of the bees to genetically engineered crops. The real answer to "What is killing the bees of Europe?" is that no one really knows. This article demonstrates a real problem in today's techno-centered world. There are so many new products and procedures developing today that there is no real way of knowing what effect they have on the environment and on society. I do not believe there is a solution to this problem but it makes for great speculation and headlines.
