Polution prevents bees from doing their job

One of Pete's favorite EIGN subjects, CCD, and the alarming increase in bees not being able to pollinate flowers, plus the dramatic and drastic (but not dramatically drastic) consequences that are coming.

"Scientists are seeking to determine why honeybees and bumblebees are dying off in the United States and in other countries, and the new study indicates that emissions from power plants and automobiles may play a part in the insects' demise." (wapo)

Anyone care to guess what happens when bee's can't pollinate flowers? Yeah, I don't want to think about it either.
