Technology, A Step too Far?
It would appear that our own advances in technology could put us on a course of genocide on our own race.
The advances in telecommunications, in the last couple of decades, are astounding and all those people involved in it should, rightly be proud of themselves. However, did we go too far too fast, for our own good?
There is a lot of talk lately that the excessive use of cell phones could lead to cancer but that is not what I am talking about here.
What concerns me is that recent reports show that cell phone use confuses Bees and could lead to their deaths. A study carried out in Switzerland, led by Daniel Favre showed that Bees were significantly affected by cell phones.
Bees play an important part in our survival. They are responsible for the pollination of perhaps 60% of our food crops.
In the last 30 years Bee populations have dwindled rapidly, with Europe now having half the population it once had. 30 years also marks the start and build up of “cell” technology.
The United States has also noticed a significant decline in its Bee populations. Will the rest of the World follow?
Before we take the technology any further, we should stop and look further into the Bee situation; otherwise we may have to prepare ourselves for a famine like the World has never faced before.
