Mystery of the disappearing bees: Solved!


It’s time to BOYCOTT BAYER until they stop the use of  “neonics”!!

By Richard Schiffman
April 9, 2012

If it were a novel, people would criticize the plot for being too far-fetched – thriving colonies disappear overnight without leaving a trace, the bodies of the victims are never found. Only in this case, it’s not fiction: It’s what’s happening to fully a third of commercial beehives, over a million colonies every year. Seemingly healthy communities fly off never to return. The queen bee and mother of the hive is abandoned to starve and die.

Thousands of scientific sleuths have been on this case for the last 15 years trying to determine why our honey bees are disappearing in such alarming numbers. “This is the biggest general threat to our food supply,” according to Kevin Hackett, the national program leader for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s bee and pollination program.

Until recently, the evidence was inconclusive on the cause of the mysterious “colony collapse disorder” (CCD) that threatens the future of beekeeping worldwide. But three new studies point an accusing finger at a culprit that many have suspected all along, a class of pesticides known as neonicotinoids.

In the U.S. alone, these pesticides, produced primarily by the German chemical giant Bayer and known as “neonics” for short, coat a massive 142 million acres of corn, wheat, soy and cotton seeds. They are also a common ingredient in home gardening products.

Research published last month in the prestigious journal Science shows that neonics are absorbed by the plants’ vascular system and contaminate the pollen and nectar that bees encounter on their rounds. They are a nerve poison that disorient their insect victims and appear to damage the homing ability of bees, which may help to account for their mysterious failure to make it back to the hive.

Another study published in the American Chemical Society’s Environmental Science and Technology journal implicated neonic-containing dust released into the air at planting time with “lethal effects compatible with colony losses phenomena observed by beekeepers.”

Purdue University entomologists observed bees at infected hives exhibiting tremors, uncoordinated movement and convulsions, all signs of acute insecticide poisoning. And yet another study conducted by scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health actually re-created colony collapse disorder in several honeybee hives simply by administering small doses of a popular neonic, imidacloprid.

But scientists believe that exposure to toxic pesticides is only one factor that has led to the decline of honey bees in recent years. The destruction and fragmentation of bee habitats, as a result of land development and the spread of monoculture agriculture, deprives pollinators of their diverse natural food supply. This has already led to the extinction of a number of wild bee species. The planting of genetically modified organism (GMO) crops – some of which now contain toxic insecticides within their genetic structure – may also be responsible for poisoning bees and weakening their immune systems.

Every spring millions of bee colonies are trucked to the Central Valley of California and other agricultural areas to replace the wild pollinators, which have all but disappeared in many parts of the country. These bees are routinely fed high-fructose corn syrup instead of their own nutritious honey. And in an effort to boost productivity, the queens are now artificially inseminated, which has led to a disturbing decline in bee genetic diversity. Bees are also dusted with chemical poisons to control mites and other pathogens that have flourished in the overcrowded commercial colonies.

In 1923, Rudolph Steiner, the German founder of biodynamic agriculture, a precursor of the modern organic movement, predicted that within a hundred years artificial industrial techniques used to breed honey bees would lead to the species’ collapse. His prophecy was right on target!

Honey bees have been likened to the canaries in the coal mine. Their vanishing is nature’s way of telling us that conditions have deteriorated in the world around us. Bees won’t survive for long if we don’t change our commercial breeding practices and remove deadly toxins from their environment. A massive pollinator die-off would imperil world food supplies and devastate ecosystems that depend on them. The loss of these creatures might rival climate change in its impact on life on earth.

Still, this is a disaster that does not need to happen. Germany and France have already banned pesticides that have been implicated in the deaths of bees. There is still time to save the bees by working with nature rather than against it, according to environmentalist and author Bill McKibben:

“Past a certain point, we can’t make nature conform to our industrial model. The collapse of beehives is a warning – and the cleverness of a few beekeepers in figuring out how to work with bees not as masters but as partners offers a clear-eyed kind of hope for many of our ecological dilemmas.”

Is Another Mass Extinction Event on the Way?


Anyone who still believes time is linear and that the Earth doesn’t have well established life and death cycles, needs to take a good look at the chart below which clearly illustrates how mass extinctions began over a century ago. It’s also very likely that everything about the last 50 years has been designed to keep us completely distracted, numbed out and dumbed down so that the we, the unwashed masses won’t know what hit us when Mother Nature brings the curtain down on this episode of life on planet Earth.

You have to go back to the time of the dinosaurs to see where Earth is heading.

Why have mass extinctions of species occurred since the late Proterozoic (from 580 million years ago) and repeatedly through the Phanerozoic? Integral to these extinctions were abrupt changes in the physical and chemical properties of the atmosphere, ocean and land, inducing environmental changes at a pace to which many species could not adapt.

The best documented example to date is the 65 million years-old K-T boundary asteroid impact and extinction event. But several other mass extinctions were associated with volcanic eruptions and asteroid/comet impacts (see Figure 1).

Instantaneous effects of impacts (initial fireball flash as the asteroid or comet enters the atmosphere, crater explosion, seismic shock, tsunami waves, incandescent ejecta, dust plumes, greenhouse gas release from carbon-rich limestone and shale) occurred over periods ranging from seconds to weeks and months.

As shown in figure 1, Phanerozoic history (since about 540 million years ago) is marked with a number of mass extinction events. About 80% of genera were lost at the ~251 Ma Permian-Triassic boundary event. This was a consequence of both volcanic eruptions (known as the Siberian Norilsk traps) and an asteroid impact near Araguinha, Brazil (Araguinha: 40 km-diameter; 252.7+/-3.8 Ma).

These mass extinction events came on top of more gradual geological processes. These included plate tectonic movements, continental rifting and associated increases in volcanism and mountain building. There were intermittent build up and precipitation of volcanic aerosols and the longer term accumulation and sequestration of atmospheric greenhouse gases (see Figure 2).

Cainozoic Events

Main features: (1) a low-CO2 late Cretaceous (~70-65 Ma) period terminated by the K-T impact, raising CO2 to ~1700-6500 ppm; (2) high-CO2 Eocene (~50-32 Ma) period terminated by a ~35 Ma impact cluster followed by opening of the Drake Passage, formation of the circum-Antarctic cold current and the Antarctic ice sheet, leading to low-CO2 (~200-500 ppm) Oligocene to present climates.

These past events have much to teach us. But the loss of biodiversity associated with the rise of hominids, and in particular since the onset of the industrial age, constitutes a unique phenomenon in Earth history. It is fundamentally different in origin – although similar in terms of some of its consequences – to previous mass extinction events.

For the first time in planetary history a species has mastered combustion, first of carbon products of the biosphere, then of fossil carbon products hundreds of millions of years old. This has magnified its oxygenating capacities by many orders of magnitude. For example, whereas human respiration uses about two to seven calories each minute, driving a car commonly uses more than 1000 calories a minute and operating a power plant more than one million calories a minute.

Species Extinction

Figure 3: The rise in human population and in the number of extinct species between 1800 and 2010.

The magnitude of current loss of species is portrayed in figures 3 to 5. According to the Centre for Biological Diversity:

“The human population is 6.8 billion and growing every second. The sheer force of our numbers is dominating the planet to such a degree that geologists are contemplating renaming our era the ‘Anthropocene’: the epoch where the human species is the dominant factor affecting land, air, water, soil, and species.”

“We now absorb 42 percent of the planet’s entire terrestrial net primary productivity. We use 50 percent of all fresh water. We’ve transformed 50 percent of all land. We’ve changed the chemical composition of the whole biosphere and all the world’s seas, bringing on global warming and ocean acidification. Most importantly, we raised the extinction rate from a natural level of one extinction per million species per year up to 30,000 per year. That’s three per hour.”

Original Biomes

The utilisation of solar energy stored in plants through photosynthesis, fossil remains of planets and of marine organisms, increases entropy in nature by many orders of magnitude. The mastery of fire by the genus Homo signifies not only a blueprint for the species, but for much of terrestrial nature.

The splitting of the atom increases potential release of entropy by 14 to 15 orders of magnitude for a 1 megaton TNT-equivalent device. Only a species capable of controlling these devices would be able to avoid the catastrophic consequences of the release of such levels of energy into the biosphere.

Biodiversity

The rate at which radiative forcing and temperature in the atmosphere are now rising exceeds those of previous events in the atmosphere and ocean system, excepting those associated with mass extinctions of species.

As shown in Figure 6, if we compare the current rise of more than 2ppm/year to the mean rise in atmospheric CO₂ of +0.43 ppm/year since 1750, the only recorded rise of similar magnitude occurred 55 million years ago. At this time, the release of some ~2000 GtC carbon as methane took place at a rate of ~0.1 ppm/year.

In terms of temperatures, the current rise rate of ~0.02 to 0.03 degrees Celsius/year is consistent with the fastest rates recorded in Cainozoic history (see Figure 6).

Throughout geological history many species succeeded in adapting to slow to moderate environmental changes. Some survived the most extreme environmental events. Burning the world’s fossil fuel reserves of more than 2000 GtC, analogous to the magnitude estimated for the 55 Ma-old Paleocene-Eocene Thermal event, is leading Earth’s climate and habitats into uncharted territory.

It’s Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees

Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results. With virtually most of the population of the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been greatly noticeable.

Led by researcher Daniel Favre, the alarming study found that bees reacted significantly to cell phones that were placed near or in hives in call-making mode. The bees sensed the signals transmitted when the phones rang, and emitted heavy buzzing noise during the calls. The calls act as an instinctive warning to leave the hive, but the frequency confuses the bees, causing them to fly erratically. The study found that the bees’ buzzing noise increases ten times when a cell phone is ringing or making a call – aka when signals are being transmitted, but remained normal when not in use.

The signals cause the bees to become lost and disoriented. The impact has already been felt the world over, as the population of bees in the U.S. and the U.K. has decreased by almost half in the last thirty years – which coincides with the popularization and acceptance of cell phones as a personal device. Studies as far back as 2008 have found that bees are repelled by cell phone signals.

Bees are an integral and necessary part of our agricultural and ecological systems, producing honey, and more importantly pollinating our crops. As it is unlikely that the world will learn to forgo the convenience of cell phones, it is unclear how much they will contribute to the decline of bees, and their impact on the environment.

The Coming Pole Shift, Brent Miller on Coast to Coast w/George Noory


This Coast to Coast interview is one of the most informative shows yet on the coming Pole shift and is a great follow-up to information posted here over the weekend on the Horizon Project. Due take the time to listen, especially if you’re still on the fence about earth changes unfolding and why they are taking place. Brent shows how the scientific facts and the end time prophecy’s both point to the time we are living in now as the time for the changes a pole shift would bring about. In addition to Brent Miller,The Horizon Project is Dr Brooks Agnew and Michael Tsarion.

Brent Miller, of The Horizon Project, has warned of mounting evidence that Earth is due for a polar shift which will end civilization as we know it. “It could happen tomorrow, it could happen 50 years from now, but all the evidence that we’ve been able to collect indicates that the next one is about to happen,” Miller cautioned of the global catastrophe that he sees as imminent.

Describing the cataclysmic changes which would befall the planet during such an event, Miller said that as the poles move, the equator will be upended as well. According to him, this will result in widespread geographical changes due to wild gravitational shifts. Noting the preponderance of water on the planet, he said that “during this sloshing about, as Earth wobbles and reorients itself, what happens is that the waters literally decimate all the coastal areas around the planet.” Painting a grim picture of a post-shift world, Miller estimated that the event would “wipe out four billion people within six months and then a ‘Mad Max’ scenario.”

Miller explained that the Horizon Project based their forecast for a polar shift on a growing number of anomalies around the world. He cited weather oddities, such as snowfall in Baghdad for the first time in over 100 years and the increase in earthquakes in unlikely locations. According to him, off-planet clues, like the increase in solar activity, also lend credence to a polar shift scenario occurring in the future. While he suspected that the worlds’ governments knew of this impending disaster, he was doubtful of any official announcement, saying “I think we are given all the warning we’re going to be given. We’re seeing all the signs.”

Dr. LaViolette is credited with the discovery of the planetary-stellar mass-luminosity relation which demonstrates that the Sun, planets, stars, and supernova explosions are powered by spontaneous energy creation through photon blueshifting. With this relation, he successfully predicted the mass-luminosity ratio of the first brown dwarf to be discovered. In addition, Paul LaViolette has developed a new theory of gravity that replaces the deeply flawed theory of general relativity. Predicted from subquantum kinetics, it accounts for the electrogravitic coupling phenomenon discovered by Townsend Brown and may explain the advanced aerospace propulsion technology utilized in the B-2 bomber. He is the first to discover that certain ancient creation myths and esoteric lores metaphorically encode an advanced science of cosmogenesis. His contributions to the field of Egyptology and mythology may be compared to the breaking of the Rosetta Stone hieroglyphic code.

Two Suns, an International Video Montage of the Binary Twin, the Hopi’s Red Kachina?


It’s become apparent that our sun is part of a binary star system, on a perpetual 3600 year cyclical dance with another “binary” twin sun, in this particular case the twin is a brown dwarf.

Below is just a small sample from around the world depicting two suns, most are taken at dawn or dusk when the glare from the sun allows it to be seen.  Could this be the sign of the Red Kachina that the Hopi spoke of?

Since world leaders chose to keep the all of humanity ignorant of facts known to them since at least the late 1950′s, we can only work together at the grassroots level to seek out the truth behind the mystery’s of our solar system. To determine for ourselves if there are threatening situations in the cosmos that would cause the governments of the world to spent trillions on massive underground/sea bases, to build massive vaults into mountains in the Netherlands to store non-GMO seeds and then in another location storage for the worlds most valued historical and educational records, books, transcripts, journals etc..

On a personal note, after nearly three years researching the Nibiru/Nemesis/Planet X enigma from just about every angle possible, including: Historical evidence derived from numerous ancient cultures going back as far as the Sumerians; religious context from various bibles referring to Wormwood;  geological evidence of cyclical cataclysmic events; astronomical evidence sewn together by credible scientists, physicists, astronomers; countless whistleblower testimonials and now pictures from around the world it’s plain to see that we have a stranger in our midst, or the sun – it’s long lost twin…eek! Lets hope its not the evil twin – this is starting to sound like a bad Hollywood B movie… “Return of the Prodigal Sun”.

So we have something coming in from the area of the sun, or moving past the sun. The question is how many planetary bodies  are we talking about, the whole “comet Elenin” debate is exhausting! But, the fact is something is heading through the solar system and the earth will cross it’s path later this year, into the debris field left behind in it’s wake.

Scientists warn Australia in the midst of an extinction event


March 24, 2011 – AUSTRALIA – Up to 45 rare species of wallaby, bandicoot and other Australian animals could become extinct within 20 years unless urgent action is taken to control introduced predators and other threats, scientists are warning. Dozens of mammals, birds, lizards and other vertebrates in the remote northwestern Kimberley region are at risk from hunting by feral cats and from destruction of their native habitat by wild donkeys, goats and fires, a study of the conservation needs of the area shows. “We’re in the midst of a massive extinction event in Australia and the north has really been the last stronghold for many species of birds and mammals and reptiles,” said Tara Martin, a co-author of the report by the government-funded Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. Nearly 30 percent of the endangered species identified in the study are unique to the Kimberley region, while others, like the golden bandicoot and golden-backed tree rat, have already disappeared elsewhere in the country. “The Kimberley is really their last chance on Earth,” Martin told The Associated Press. -3News

Scientists fear mass extinction as oceans choke

Australian scientists fear the planet is on the brink of another mass extinction as ocean dead zones continue to grow in size and number.

More than 400 ocean dead zones – areas so low in oxygen that sea life cannot survive – have been reported by oceanographers around the world between 2000 and 2008.

That is compared with 300 in the 1990s and 120 in the 1980s.

Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (CoECRS) and from the University of Queensland, says there is growing evidence that declining oxygen levels in the ocean have played a major role in at least four of the planet’s five mass extinctions.

“Until recently the best hypothesis for them was a meteor strike,” he said.

“So 65 million years ago they’ve got very good evidence of the cretaceous exctinction event.

“But with the four other mass extinction events, one of the best explanations now is that these periods were preceded by an increase of volcanic activity, and that volcanic activity caused a change in ocean circulation.

“Just as we are seeing at a smaller scale today, huge parts of the ocean became anoxic at depth.

“The consequence of that is that you had increased amounts of rotten egg gas, hydrogen sulfide, going up into the atmosphere, and that is thought to be what may have caused some of these other extinction events.”

Professor Hoegh-Guldberg says up to 90 per cent of life has perished in previous mass extinctions and that a similar loss of life could occur in the next 100 years.

“We’re already having another mass extinction due to humans wiping out life and so on, but it looks like it could get as high as those previous events,” he said.

“So it’s the combination of this alteration to coastlines, climate change and everything, that has a lot of us worried we are going to drive the sixth extinction event and it will happen over the next 100 years because we are interfering with the things that keep species alive.

“Ocean ecosystems are in a lot of trouble and it all bears the hallmarks of human interference….
