The summary of the issue: Honeybees are vanishing at an alarming rate. There's no explanation as to why this is occuring as yet. This has been reported in the US, Europe, and Brazil. There's a quote flying around the internet which is as follows: "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left." This quote is said to have been uttered by none of than Albert Einstein. I've found several sites that lead me to believe that this is an incorrect citation, but the words still hold a very heavy impact. I wont bother posting the links that lead me to believe Einstein didn't say this but here's a google link.

Wouldn't it make sense to put a tiny tracker on some of these bees?!?!?!?!?! What's stopping them from doing this? Would equipping them with a tracker interfere with their normal activities in vanishing? A few explanations: Global Warming Pesticides Killer Bees?! Ok. Everyone break out your tinfoil hats and discuss.
