Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
If you weren't aware, there's a fascinating but really bad problem occurring in the US. Roughly 25% of the honey bees in America died. This creates a serious problem for agriculture and the after effects will hit us very soon (at the supermarket).
For more background, see http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20612274/ for some new evidence.
[UPDATE] Matt Hester called me all worried about who's going to make his breakfast cereal. LOL.
Honey-Nut Cheerios, I pressume.
(Factoid - my Dad used to be Director of Cereal Development at General Mills. Yes, he and his people really did "punch the holes in Cheerios".)
