Apparently all the honey bees are disappearing from the US http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/6438373.stm. No one really knows why this happening but the ecological impact could be disastrous. It gets me wondering what would happen if other creatures suddenly vanished. What would happen if one day there were no birds at all? The skies bereft of any flying creatures or the seas suddenly empty of fish? Who would eat all the acorns if the squirrels vanish? And what about bacteria? Whole processes of nature would suddenly stop happening.
Read this week:
Stardust by Neil Gaiman (the novel format).
