Good News Wednesday: The We'll Bee Fine Edition

Bees are on our mind after seeing the front page of the Washington Post today and just reading a story on National Geographic yesterday. So when I tried to find the link to the NG story I came across a post by from January that reported that we should (almost) stop worrying about Colony Collapse Disorder. Or not. But at least Beekeepers in the US have more bees than anytime, ever... in the last 3 years.

The other positive news is that major urban areas are seeing an increase in bee keeping. The roofs and parks of New York City and Washington, DC are becoming an increasingly popular place to harvest them. At least according to the Washington Post today. Who stole the story about NYC bees from National Geographic on May 29th, who actually stole the NYC bee story from the New York Times in 1999.

At any rate. This is your good news of the week.

As an aside, I was going to write up a review of last night's ABC News presentation of Earth 2100, their program about the end of the world, but it was so painful to watch that I couldn't make it through more than 5 minutes. There's my review, I guess.
