I know, I’m late. Fortunately, the good people running the We Are The World Blogfest are flexible enough to let me count the Monday after the last Friday of the month in the monthly blogfest of good news. Anyway, I’m here and I’m bringing a little good news from the world of technology. After a 42-year long career of creating technology to properly account for insurance company profits, I get very happy to see technology being used for a better cause.
Maybe not, maybe it will take a concerted effort, but one thing is clear, Honey Bees are worth saving.
“The insect that is responsible for pollinating the food crops of people and animals has a big role to play in our ecosystem, and external factors such as climate change and pesticide use have decimated some bee populations that are critical to the food industry. For example, CNN Business says it takes more than 2 million beehives to support the California almond industry alone.”
The article is very short, and you’ll find a text ad video version at that link above. The second snippet I’m going to share has to do with the non-technology portion of the article. As the article finishes talking about the fact that other technology companies are working on behalf of the bees, they add,
“So as they do their part, let’s do ours and stop mowing down dandelions the second they appear. Experts say that in early spring these “weeds” are sometimes the only source of food for essential insects.”
