Extinction, Bees, and Beekeepers

Katherine Dalton at the Front Porch Republic has a post up about the continuing misfortunes of the honey bee, and how the real group that might be in danger of extinction could be the beekeepers.

I find these stories to be a source of a faceless, unspeakable dread.  It just doesn’t seem normal that so many species are having such sudden and extreme declines in population.  Bees, frogs, and bats all come to mind as recent examples.  It seems like we are heading towards some kind of major change in our environment, and I don’t think we can even guess at what the ultimate effects will be.
