I read somewhere that if bees become extinct, the world as we know it would die inside four years. I don’t know much about bees, except that they fly from flower to flower, carrying pollen and propagation far and wide. Their efforts and behaviour are integral to the survival of all things.

Is it just the bees? Or does the loss of anything or anyone, change the world completely?

I notice that in any situation, the presence or absence of any individual or object changes the whole experience of an environment. It’s neither good nor bad; it’s just different.

I like bees as much as the next guy. Would their absence truly devastate the planet? Or would everyone and everything evolve and adapt?

We always do. Life always finds a way to go on. Forever changed, perhaps.

Life prevails.
