In the last decades in various regions of the world bees are disappearing en masse. Beekeepers in Scotland open their hives and find them empty.
1/3 of human food production depends on bees. Many fruits, vegetables and other crops would not exist if not pollinated by bees, making it clear that the species acts as a catalyst on the whole cycle of life.
Scientists insist that the disappearance of bees is caused by the widespread use of neonicotinoid insecticides in the fields. At the same time, multinational corporations like Bayer and Syngenta, which produce these neonicotinoids, stubbornly deny this fact. The conflict has reached the European Commission. The United Kingdom refuses to vote for a proposal to ban the use of neonicotinoids.
Albert Einstein had once warned: "If ever the bees disappeared from the face of earth, man will have no more than four years to live."
