These are all huge issues. We are drowning ourselves in pesticides, while the natural predators of many of the insects we are trying to kill are dying off. My daughter did a kindergarten presentation about the bats dying. I will have to share this story with her. She will like it.
But Nick is right.
The bees are huge. The rapid loss of the bee populations is going to have a huge impact on the entire planet.
Frogs are also bug eaters. Kill them. We need more pesticides.
The coral reefs. I am shocked to visit sites i used to dive, and see such destruction. Local residents usually blame the coral bleaching on some recent hurricane. But there have been many many hurricanes in the thousands of years that some of those reefs survived. It is something more.
And then those of us who live on island wonder about rising sea levels....
