    More Than Honey

    Sunday May 17, 2015 / 3 – 4:30 pm

    Fifty years ago, Einstein had already insisted on the symbiotic relationship binding bees as pollen gatherers to mankind: “If bees were to disappear from the globe,” he predicted, “mankind would only have four years left to live.” Over the past 15 years, colonies of bees have collapsed around the world, but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. Everywhere, the same scenario is repeated: billions of bees leave their hives, never to return. No bodies are found in the immediate surroundings, and no visible predators can be located.

    More Than Honey explores the phenomenon, and some of the theories as to why it’s happening.
