For $500 and 50 acres of abandoned land next to the Seattle airport, beekeeper Bob Redmond bred half a million bees.

This is an outstanding achievement and these types of efforts should be multiplied while we deal with the root cause -nicotine-based pesticides-, argues Michael Richard from Treehugger.

Virtually every food and vegetable depends on bees for pollination (See list). Our whole food supply could quickly disappear just because we allow a few corporations to increase profits in the production of only three types of food: corn, canola, and soy.
