There is so much wrong with this on so many levels it’s scary.We are in the age of eating food, that’s being genetically modified that ends up corrupting & Damaging our own DNA structure. This in and of itself is a horrible thing we could be doing to the human race. Who knows what that will change in our next generations born from eating these foods. More lengthy long term research is needed.
The second thing wrong is this implication that instead of getting to the root problem of what is CAUSING the disappearance of bees and other animals making up our ecosystems, we are putting another band-aid on it. This will not solve the real problems… only accentuate them.
But anyway, the fact remains RoboBees are not the answer ??… Why?? “These guys can’t make honey, so if you love the honey, save the bees,” Long Live the ♥Bees♥

Pollinators participate in the sexual-reproduction of plants. When you eat an almond, beet, watermelon or sip on coffee, you’re partaking of an ancient relationship between pollinators and flowers. But since the 1990s, worldwide bee health has been in decline and most evidence points to toxic pesticides created by Shell and Bayer and the loss of genetic biodiversity due to the proliferation of GMO monocrops created in laboratories by biotech companies like Monsanto.
This science-fiction infomercial was made to raise awareness of the fact that bees—which are crucial for the survival of all species, including ours*—are dying all around the world. The fact is that this video isn’t too far from the truth: bees may go extinct if we don’t act promptly and scientists are already working on robotic replacements.

If we carry on with chemically intensive agriculture model, it is quite possible that we may affect our pollinating insects to such a degree that we reach a global “pollination crisis”.
This is the imaginary future we do not want. This future where bees and the biodiversity they help maintain, have finally fallen victim to chemically intensive industrial agriculture.
So, here is the question: should we create a new world or save our own?
Take action to save the bees and agriculture as part of Greenpeace’s international “Save The Bees” campaign.
