Do you know about the honey bee crisis?
A phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is decimating the honey bee population, which we rely on for one-third of our food supply. This is a major problem.
I remember seeing something about it on 60 Minutes (or was it Sunday Morning?) but it didn’t really penetrate my thick skull. While researching an article on ice cream (yes, I actually do research), I came across Haagen Dazs’ new website dedicated to the crisis. And when the people who make ice cream recognize a problem, you know it’s bad.
I’m not usually one for advocacy, but I highly encourage everyone to read up on the subject here. This a very important issue for just about everyone who likes to eat.
Oh, and the bees… it’s probably pretty important to them too.
