My friend Paul tells me that the bees are leaving because ‘Gaia’ is leaving earth to us humans as we evolve to be guardians of the planet (information according to Crimson Circle). Whatever the reasons, Colony Collapse Disorder and the massive die off of bee populations is spreading panic through the agricultural industry of the US and has now arrived in Europe with 25% of bees disappearing in the UK. Still unable to discover why it is happening, this film explores the facts, the consequences and some possible reasons. As one commentator points out, unless we enjoy eating gruel, we need to find solutions fast as bees are responsible for most of the rest of the food we eat. And could this unsettling situation be the ‘canary in the coalmine’ for other environmental problems to come.
