As the world braces for the 5G rollout, we’re being sold a vision of a wonderful, tech-enabled future. Smart homes, smart business, smart highways, smart cities, smart cars – what’s not to love? Except that governments, scientists and doctors worldwide have been stating the obvious for years now: it’s not very smart to deliberately endanger the health and wellbeing of every citizen on earth, and to endanger life on earth itself. Why are the powers that be not listening?

Last month a new one-page flyer was released to provide information about how bees are harmed by exposure to 5G and other sources of cell phone and wireless radiation.

Researchers at Colorado State University have found that cultivating hemp will be a crucial tool in fighting the dangerous decline in the bee population.
By Matt Agorist – June 16, 2019
As the world population of honeybees continues to decline at a dangerous rate, a new study from Colorado State University purports to have found the answer to quell the decline—hemp. The reason hemp is such a boon to the bee population is simple, it is a great source of pollen.

Police are looking for an arsonist who burned several beehives in Alvin, Texas, leading to the deaths of more than half a million bees, CNN reported Wednesday.
The hives belonged to the Brazoria County Beekeepers Association, which had 24 colonies at the site in total. The hives were discovered burning early Saturday morning by a sheriff’s deputy, who extinguished the flames. Some of the bee boxes had also been tossed into a pond on the site.

Just under the radar of public concerns is the fact that bees and pollinator insects are dying off in catastrophic numbers, and if we are unable to reverse this trend, we face a very different kind of future. Bees in particular appear to be acutely affected by neonicotinoid pesticides along with other fungicides and herbicides. They are losing their habitats.

A new study has found that exposure to certain pesticides can alter bees‘ genes, leading researchers to call for tougher regulations on the widely-used chemicals.
The study, published Wednesday in Molecular Ecology, looked at the impact of two neonicotinoidpesticides on bumblebee populations and found that they impacted genes involved in a variety of important biological processes.

(Natural News) Bees, like many of the world’s insects, are in crisis, and their numbers are dwindling at an alarming rate. At the same time, the world’s population – and its reliance on insect-pollinated crops – continues to grow at an equally alarming pace. The bees might be in crisis right now, but pretty soon it will be humans who are in really serious trouble.
While the world’s governments have started to wake up to the dangers pesticides pose to honeybees, a series of studies by the University of Guelph, published in the journal Environmental Entomology recently, warns that these measures are not enough. They also warn that other species of bees, including bumblebees and solitary bees, are at least as important as the honeybee when it comes to the pollination of food, and yet these species have, for the most part, been virtually ignored in terms of pesticide risk assessment measures.
