This article in norwegian newspaper Aftenposten describes how England have lost 15% of its honeybees over the last few years. Nobody knows why and with the importance of bees (the great prophet Albert Einstein once said 'No more bees, no pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more humans.') research seems underfunded. Furthermore the problem is international, Norway have for instance lost 14 out of 194 wild bee species within the same timeframe.
A new world will come wether we like it or not; but we can still chose what to pass on to it.
