"Big monoculture fields might not be pollinated quite as efficiently without them. But we're not facing a "no crops, people starve, cultivated plants go extinct" scenario by a long shot, even if the honeybees ALL die out."
Yes we are. The majority of food sold today is raised on these mono crop farms. If honeybees die out we will have famines and be reduced to to grains mostly that are wind pollinated.
The way we farm is unsustainable and most of the crops we farm were not here when this land relied on it's natural pollinators.
Still most of the fruits and vegetable we eat rely on honey bees for the most part. What a mundane existence if the majority of food were reduced to cornmeal and oatmeal that wind pollinatee and are largely GMO now.
