Bee Colony Collapse

Bee colonies are collapsing. Nobody is sure of the reason, but sceptics are disdainful of the suggestion that it may be caused by mobile phones - an explanation that is clearly fanciful to those who believe that we live in the best of all possible worlds.

However the mobile phone hypothesis is evidence based. The evidence is here. It is only one paper, and further studies may show no problem, but nevertheless it is a valid area of study.

There is an accompanying study on bees found on the same site:
