Pollution is dulling the scent of flowers and impeding some of the most basic processes of nature, disrupting insect life and imperilling food supplies, a new study suggests.


The potentially hugely significant research – funded by the blue-chip US National Science Foundation – has found that gases mainly formed from the emissions of car exhausts prevent flowers from attracting bees and other insects in order to pollinate them. And the scientists who have conducted the study fear that insects' ability to repel enemies and attract mates may also be impeded.

The problem is nurseries have for a long time bred for appearance not odor. Pollution interfering with flower pollination?? Cell phones and other electormagnetic interference with bee navigation and colonies? What hasnt gone wrong with this planet.

I heard the news of the from Ian on Coast to Coast AM. Car exhaust STINKS! -- It's SMOKE coming out of there, not just CO2... It's not just about bringing fear; it's about bringing outrage & despair, with the illusion that nothing can be done, while they suppress clean technology.
