Beez




TO DO LIST

1. Kill all the bees

2. European farmers pay billions to hand-pollinate crops

3. Sell our special GM self-pollinating varieties at a bit less than (2) costs

4. Collect Knighthood


"The House of Commons environmental audit committee concluded that "neonicotinoid pesticides are not fundamental to the general economic or agricultural viability of UK farming". In fact they can prevent a more precise and rational use of pesticides, known as integrated pest management. The committee reports that all the rape seed on sale in this country, for example, is pre-treated with neonicotinoids, so farmers have no choice but to use them, whether or not they are required."

I'm sorry, my background is engineering, you know, cogs and sprockets and stuff, so excuse me if I get things wrong.
Now, to my knowledge, a flower is usually quite small, and a bee is usually smaller.
Makes sense, that.
After all the bee has to climb inside the flower to do his dirty deed.
Where are they going to get all of those bee-sized farmers at such short notice?
