What a scientist didn't tell the New York Times about his study on bee deaths



...

A cheer must have gone up at Bayer on Thursday when a front-page New York Times article, under the headline "Scientists and Soldiers Solve a Bee Mystery," described how a newly released study pinpoints a different cause for the die-off: "a fungus tag-teaming with a virus." The study, written in collaboration with Army scientists at the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center outside Baltimore, analyzed the proteins of afflicted bees using a new Army software system. The Bayer pesticides, however, go unmentioned.

What the Times article did not explore -- nor did the study disclose -- was the relationship between the study's lead author, Montana bee researcher Dr. Jerry Bromenshenk, and Bayer Crop Science. In recent years Bromenshenk has received a significant research grant from Bayer to study bee pollination. Indeed, before receiving the Bayer funding, Bromenshenk was lined up on the opposite side: He had signed on to serve as an expert witness for beekeepers who brought a class-action lawsuit against Bayer in 2003.

thirty years ago when I started studying doomsday scenarios...

    pirmary kill: civilian reaction before event, far far worse than actual event.
    secondary kill: military reaction before event, varies depending on event.
    tertiary kill: the actual event
    quaternary kill: life after the event.


And the sample scenarios were
    nuclear exchange
    asteroid strike
    .[color=gold]grain blight
    oil depletion


The interesting thing about the grain blight scenario, which this fungus sounds like, is that desert countries come out pretty good as they don't rely on nearly as many grains. Interesting considering world politics, no?

Yeah... if you're living Mad Max every day... it probably won't affect you if the first world collapses to that level.
