A very poorly written, unscientific article.
How does the "electromagnetic radiation" kill the bees? Most cellphone tower antennas are much higher than bees fly, so they won't be killed by
high energy RF radiation or from high voltage/RF shocks.
Structurally, bees are magnitudes in size too large for RF energy or "harmonics" to kill a bee. Do they fly into the tower at a high rate of speed
and kill themselves? Trees would kill the bees the same way!
In particular, Dr. Pattazhy's scientific method is lacking! Statistically, one experiment is meaningless. So he set his cellphone next to a hive and
the worker bees didn't return. How does setting a cellphone next to a hive prove cellphone TOWERS are killing bees?
What did he do; put the phone into the door of the hive? If bees hate cellphones so bad that a phone next to a hive would drive away worker bees, why
didn't the rest of the colony also leave as a result? What impact did his harassment of the colony have on it's demise?
Was the hive exposed to disease, mites or predators? Since this brilliant scientist doesn't know what happened to the missing bees, how can he claim
the bees were killed by cellphone towers? Where is the forensic analysis of the dead bees? How does he know that birds or other predators didn't eat
No, more likely bee colonies are dying due a combination of multiple causes - disease, mites, predation, chemicals, loss of flowering habitat and
harassment from so-called "scientists" who scare the bees away from their colonies while trying to prove cellphone towers are the culprit.
I'll give you a real life example: My brother had over 20 hives/colonies that he tended on his property in the midwest. He was a beekeeper for more
than 15 years, producing a lot of honey each year. But during the Clinton administration, a know-it-all divinity school dropout who had no scientific
training and no science background forced the EPA to outlaw an anti-mite strip from sale to bee keepers. This strip was proven to kill the mites that
weakened and eventually killed honey bees. Subsequent to the outlawing of the strip, within a year, all of my brother's bee hives died out from mite
infestations, even though he tried many other anti-mite techniques. Guess how he know the hive was dying? The worker bees, who need to be the
strongest, were disappearing! Probably couldn't make it back to the hive due to the weakened condition brought on by the mites.
Within 3 years of the clinton administration's outlawing of the anti-mite strip, a majority of the known bee hives in the midwest collapsed. All of
my brother's beekeeper friends lost their hives as well. Actions have consequences, even if they are "well meaning" actions!
Any guesses as to who the brilliant bureaucrat that made the decision to outlaw the anti-mite strip was? I'll give you 3 guesses, the first 2 don't
count! It's the same man who is frightening schoolchildren about CO2; is getting rich off of carbon credits, yet has a carbon footprint 1,000 times
the size of the average American. If you guessed al gore, you were right!
