It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it:
According to Einstein we've got a little over 4 years. Here's a quote from him:
"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man."
And in today's NY Times it says that more than a ¼ of the honeybees in the U.S. have vanished. …
In Speigel, the German newsmagazine, they say, “Beekeepers on the east coast of the United States complain that they have lost more than 70 percent of their stock since late last year, while the west coast has seen a decline of up to 60 percent.”

Hyperbole and U.S.-centricity notwithstanding, it doesn't sound good.
