- Colony Collapse Syndrome (CCS) poses a serious risk to
bees as well as to global agriculture. Bees are critical not only in producing
honey, but also serve as the main crop pollinators for one third to one
half of the agricultural produce in this country. Bees are pivotal in their
role as plant pollinators. Many of the crops that depend on bees are many
of the berries and fruits, as well as citrus crops. Additionally bees are
critical to maintaining the viability of many of the nut crops that are
produced, i.e. cashews, pecans, almonds etc. Another role is that bees
are necessary also in pollinating many of the crops that are necessary
to establish many of the crops that are used to restore the soil, i.e.
clover and other species. There has recently been noticed an epidemic of
die-off of bees, or perhaps more correctly the total disappearance of bees
from their hives. What is noticed in many of the hives that are put out
is that after a certain period of time, is that the hives become vacant
or empty. There are no bees to be found. Also what has been noticed is
that other opportunistic insects will avoid the hives as well.
- There are many theories put forth to explain this die
off. Pesticides have been noted to be one contributing factor, one possible
explanation is that the pesticides which are neurotoxins cause the bees
to become forgetful or toxic and fail to lay down memory tracts of their
pollinating activities. Thus the bees literally never return to the hives.
However little evidence of pesticide activity has been found. Another fact
is that the die-offs have been occurring at the same time on four different
continents at the same time of year. The agricultural markets in other
countries do not use pesticides or use the earlier variants, which do not
produce the same effects.
- Another possible explanation has been parasites or viruses.
There have been parasites noted in earlier isolated breakouts, but not
on a global scale. Also what has been repudiated is a common virus, however
the same reasons apply. Also many animals which become toxic from emf,
the effect of which is accentuated by heavy metals and toxins often show
a breakdown in immunity with the appearance of pathogenic organisms, be
they parasites, fungi, bacteria or viruses. The organisms found are particular
to the species affected but may indicate no more than immune stress.
- What other common links can there be to explain a global
epidemic that occurs at the same time of year and seems to affect bee populations
equally, regardless of the pesticides or pests that they may be exposed
to? One common link could very well be the electromagnetic disruption that
is occurring at this time and is being caused by the discriminate and indiscriminate
use of microwave technologies. The main technology would be the globalized
electromagnetic network that has been produced for telecommunications.
- It is commonly held that bees orient themselves to light
and upon returning to the hive go through a complex dance to relay this
information to other bees. However bees also use the electromagnetic fields
of the earth as a force for orientation. The bees have a gland that is
called the mushroom gland, located in the abdomen, which functions much
like a compass. The difference is that is relays constant data back to
the brain as to where the bee is, much like the function of a flight recorder.
This ability to navigate tells the bee where they are in time and space.
- This forms the basis for laying down memory tracts and
organizing information, the very basis for learning. The bee's orientation
to the earth's electromagnetic signature is a reliable, simple and dependable
means of orientation and navigation that is not dependent on the variables
of light or weather. However one problem remains. Evolution did not count
on the signal being jammed by outside sources. Research has shown that
the mushroom gland is sensitive to the same frequencies that are emitted
by cell phones, mast towers or satellites. In essence artificial microwave
frequencies jam this mechanism and the bees become disoriented. They cannot
figure out where they are, lay down memory tracts and become lost.
- Illness and pesticides would cause a gradual die off
and dying bees would be found in the hives. With CCS no bees are found
in the hives. Microwave interference is the only plausible means of explaining
why this phenomenon is being observed at this time. It also explains why
it is occurring simultaneously and on a global basis.
- Another feature that is commonly noted in animals is
their avoidance of places that have an altered electromagnetic signature.
This is commonly seen in nature, i.e. with for instance earthquakes. It
has been noted that the hive itself acts as a resonator in tune with the
earth's electromagnetic field. Emf or any outside influence that alters
the spin of the electromagnetic signature of the hive would automatically
act as a repellant to these insects. They would automatically avoid going
back into the hive. Such a phenomena of reverse spin can be easily demonstrated
by dowsing. The anecdotal information gathered could be of great value
in resolving this issue.
- Given the pivotal role that bees play in agriculture
what could be some of the consequences of a massive die off. Well there
would be a collapse not only of the bee industry but also many of the commercial
crops that are dependent on. This would tend to cause a collapse of the
large commercial farms in this country, with an over dependence on foreign
sources and organic sources. This would tend to drive up the price of the
foods affected, at the same time making them generally available to the
overall population. Many of the foods affected are important sources of
natural antioxidants, fiber and oils.
- This might create an increased dependence on artificial
sources to compensate for this lack of natural products in the diet. Another
consequence would be the increased dependence on the standard grain crops
that are used, which would force up their prices. Who would benefit from
all this? Certainly not the consumer! The artificial control of market
availability of products to create inflationary prices at the cost of human
lives is certainly not unique. One does not have to stray that far to observe
this style of handwriting on the wall. Human history is replete with examples
of a few individuals controlling the destinies of nations, producing dependency
on their technologies, and profiting from their control of the marketplace
at the expense of other human beings. Indeed this is signatory of our current
economy. One might attribute these changes as early harbingers of earth
changes, or perhaps the hand of Providence. However the one constant is
human greed and mans inhumanity to man.
- As with bees, so the same effect is being observed in
humans, note the rise in autism, memory disturbances and related disorders.
The global alteration of our environment without regard to the limitations
of our biology will have profound effects for all life on this planet.
This is a timely and urgent matter that involves everyone.
