Somehow I missed this–Dennis was at TED last year! He discusses honey bees, native bees, and some of the evidence for CCD and native bee declines. I love his slogan of “Make Meadows, Not Lawns.”
Sadly, the comments on this post seem to be people who would rather have a conspiracy (“Monsanto! Pesticides! Microwaves!”) than actual evidence. Very sad that in 2009 people are still hanging on to ideas that have been discredited.
There is an additional TED insect talk on ants featuring Debrah Gordon.
Yay to TED connecting to nature! And thanks to apis.me for the tip!
