Dying Bats+Dying Bees=Trouble

First there was colony collapse disorder where bees were dying off by the millions. Now it is the bats that are dying in the northeast of the US which means more mosquitoes and other flying insects await us all this spring.

Alan Hicks, a wildlife biologist with the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, said he fears a catastrophic collapse of the region’s bat population and is urgently enlisting experts around the country to find the cause.

Scientists think perhaps humans are spreading the bat killing disease from cave to cave. The dead bats which number in the thousands so far have a ring of white fungus around their nose and scientists do not know if this is a symptom or the reason the bats are dying. Some surmise however the fungus could be a result of the bats being too sick to groom themselves.

Hopefully scientists will be able to find the cause and cure for this problem. I sincerely hope the problem isn’t related to WiMAX or some other new technology. If global warming is the cause, perhaps this will be more of an incentive for the world to try to reverse this trend.

This may be unrelated but I have noticed that this year and last… birds near my house in Connecticut seem to have stopped flying south. Could this be somehow related to the bat problem? Hey, I am no scientist but I am a MacGyver fan.

    I feel like I have a rubber band around my jaw, and I have microwave sickness. My tongue is coated white upon exposure, too.
    It’s the wireless boom. I’m not sure which, or if it’s all of them combined, but please google the Biointiative Report.

    I think personally that the cell towers that have been put up through out the United States might have something to do with the bees and the bats dying. No one has really done any big research on the radiation that comes out of these towers. We just sit back and listen to what the government wants us to hear. Does the owners of these towers have the government in their back pockets. I would like to be sent information about the radiation effects from these towers. Thank you. Cornice

    Cornace, the Biointiative Report is a collection of studies that indicate that exposure to electromagnetic and microwave fields do indeed have biological effects. The media has all but ignored these reports.

    I have had hundreds of dead bees by my house, thought maybe the homeowners association was overspraying with too much pestacide. The above comment regarding cellular site problems is very interesting. I’ts a very disturbing problem.

    In reference to the bats and bees dying off…..my personal opinion says to look at the “blanket” pesticide spraying that is going on nationwide. Look at the spraying that is going on or about to take place in the Bay Area (CA). Our food chain/supply is very dependent on the bats and bees. They are systematically being exterminated after they eat these poisoned vegetations.

    Humans are funny, but fairly stupid.
    The world is no warmer than it has been several times in the past 100 years (it was much warmer in the 30s).
    We avoid the real problems due to politics.
    Folks, it is overpopulation. We keep borders open in counties where the population was already stable, and we do it just to get waiters, janitors and fruit pickers.
    We are selfishly, and lazily killing ourselves.
    And we hand our ignorant governments more power as we become more afraid because our environment is being destroyed. But it is not due to CO2 (you morons).
    We are adding huge amounts of heavy metals, plastics, general toxins and hormones to our environment as the populations become MUCH more dense. We may wake up in time, but I suspect it will be far too late.
    How sad. Earth was kind of neat…
    And yes, we better take a much closer look at the RF radiation bath we have put ourselves in with cell towers.

    This is so dam funny just bring back DDT and all the good weed and insect killers who needs bats who needs insects who needs plants. WE need JOBS JOBS JOBS, If we all die in a chemical soup of self imposed destruction at least we die in an economy with money. No one gives a good goddam about the environment its health , biodiversity,sustainability. Bankers do not care, corporations do not care governments do not care, and most of all the general public has about 0 tolerance for tree hugging groups,universities, and individuals who think a healthy sustainable environment is possible. There is absolutely no chance for the continuing degradation of the earth not to continue NONE. People care for only several things Television, Viagra enhanced sex, Sports, Beer, Automobiles to wax in the drive each week, lawn grass without weeds, and protracted wars to keep the economy going.

    Thats nice.
    Bob, you’re either trolling, or mentally inept.
    Hopefully its the first.

    I believe HAARP auroral research project where micro wave death beams are bounced back to earth off the ionosphere is killing bees and bats-as also thousands of bird flocks have been found dead all over world from 1996-2009, HAARP went active in 1993. These electron beams can be projected anywhere on Earth and through miles of rock and water-any life or Bird/Bat flock near this beam is ELECTROCUTED and COOKED just as if in microwave or lightning bolt. Even in a cave HAARP can produce seismic vibrations great enough to kill.

    TRUE! Humans are stupid-pay them $2,000/mth and most are content,happy to stick head in sand/TV. The Planet is not getting warmer cause CO2. Cap & Trade is a global money SCAM by corp. rulers!Corps have been enthroned as a Shadow govern, controlling you,controls our money supply,our food supply-GMO crops,they bought their way in Boards of all large corps with BANK Financing, they control most (230) nations resources,gold, diamonds-off shore oil, Alaska oil, Amazon rain forest(uprooting whole rain forest causes globe warming.) They control unknown technologies,cancer is put in vaccines,(HAARP)they have underground cites over world.If any nation’s elected President refuses to deal they are removed(see Iran Mosidec, Russia Csar Nicholas, Lincoln, McKinnley, Cleveland, Kennedy,Iraq-Saddom, Panama-Torrejios,Ecuador-Aguilarra,Guatemala-Guzman.)

    No Im pissed off that the Gulf oil leak mentality the mentality that says exploit everything do not worry about pollution and lets grow population and economy forever
    and expect no natural backlash is still the God of America. So if thats trolling and thats mental deficiency I got it.

    UR Govern. has been taken over and it’s a corporate take over(Gerald Celante-Trend Forecaster.) Our Govern. exists only to serve the Corporate Elites(not you and I-Dummy,) (JFK was the the last Govern official who stood against them.)There are no Countries-there is only: Exxon,BP, Goldman,GM,Boeing,General Dynamics,GE,BAE, Monsanto, Haliburton, Chase, Etc, These are the Nations of our World above the Governs(believe it or not!)
