Quote from Iceman:
"Life is life's greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest." Lloyd Biggle Jr
That's the sum total of it all. Humans want life easy and don't seem to care much about what are the effects.
The Bee is undoubtedly a huge player in the scheme of nature. But we might also look at all the creatures that are in danger of extinction as a result of human greed.
And while the bees are disappearing so are the great forest.
Thus it's a matter of time before the great homo sapien cancer destroys it's creator."
