Think of the bees

Why would any farmer undertake to kill off some of the hardest working and most reliable farm workers?

It is difficult to understand why and the intent behind the current proposal to erect a cell tower with multiple transmitters on agricultural land. Why any farmer would intentionally undertake a project that can and will have a negative effect on farming in the area is beyond difficult to understand.

World wide there are issues of sudden bee colony collapse. True, some of the causes are disease, mites and insecticides, etc.

One of the major causes is radiation. Possibly the major cause of colony collapse is radiation. The simple basic explanation is the radiation essentially triggers the “reset button” on the bee’s navigation system and they can not find their way back to the hive.

Albert Einstein is said to have said that without bees life on earth would expire within four years. Whether Einstein actually said these words is not certain but, the basic truth of the importance of bees and life on the planet is self evident.

Why would any farmer undertake to kill off some of the hardest working and most reliable farm workers, especially when they not only work for free but provide other benefits too?
