Brazil lost 500 million bees in 3 months in 2019, raising concerns about the future of the Earth and its people | Category: General Source
Did they find them?
Why is this on r/nottheonion? It’s *still* extremely concerning.
Bees are a farmed introduced species, so this is serious but in the vein as losing chickens, not a native species.
We need bees to survive, bees don’t need us to survive.
Pesticides. We know what kills them. There is no mystery.
Concerns are about risen properly, time to pop it in the oven.
In the Bolsonaro Government, many pesticides were released by his Minister of the Environment [source](https://g1.globo.com/economia/agronegocios/noticia/2023/02/04/bolsonaro-liberou-2182-agrotoxicos-em-4-anos-recorde-para-um-governo-desde-2003.ghtml).
it is believed that these deaths are related to the release of pesticides [source](https://g1.globo.com/pr/norte-noroeste/noticia/2023/02/02/cerca-de-8-milhoes-de-abelhas-morrem-em-apiarios-em-maua-da-serra-diz-adapar-suspeita-e-de-intoxicacao.ghtml).
sorry for the bad english, I used google translate.
There are concerns about the earth it has outlasted worst things than us and its going to out last us and will recover after we are gone. I have none about the earth its not going anywhere we are.
Pesticides are killing bee’s but nothing is been done and why it might not be the main cause its clearly not helping in anyway.
500 million is a massive problem. Even if they only lost one, they would have to change their name to Razil.
“Why are we waiting?”
Maybe because I am not the president of Brazil or a billionaire.
Hey listen between temperatures, sea level rise, the threat of a giant asteroid and of course mutual extermination let alone the rise of AI/sky net and billionaires who want 10 year olds to re-enter the workforce…sorry but bees? Listen if the powers that be don’t care anymore and refuse to do $uck all about it..me and my poverty wages and lack of ability to even do things I like anymore simply don’t have the time, food, energy, and money to care anymore. If they do t care I can’t. Why can’t instead of won’t? Because I want to care but simply don’t have the energy to do so anymore.
