They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I received this in a wire and I was going to post it but than I read it. And I started researching the scientists. I sent a copy of it to Dennis and a few others so I get an informed opinion. I didn't want to post it without it.

But since you posted it I will go with what I know for certian.
1. MAAREC has already said inthe FAQ that Cell phone towers are not an issue because there are apiaries affect by CCD that are nowhere near one.
2. None of the scientist quoted in the article are working with a CCD research team. Dr. Carlo or Kuhn aren't associated with a CCD research team.
3. While Dr. Carlo is a pathologist and epidemologist. He has no studies in Entemology.
4. My german sucks so I am not certain as to the degrees Dr. Kuhn.

I consider this a FUD piece(Fear Uncertainty Doubt). When I have more information I will follow up.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

i will dump it in the man made global warming pile  :-)

on a more serious note.  one of the big beekeepers around here leased part of his land for a cell tower and on another piece of land he has power lines running across.  if either were the cause of CCD, he'd have lost all his bees long ago!
