Turn Off Your Phone and Read a Book — you could save the planet

"A new study by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology reports that honeybees are 'fatally confused by the electromagnetic signals coming out of cell phones.'"
" [...] mobile phones produce what the study called 'a dramatic impact on the behavior of bees, namely by inducing the worker piping signal.' A worker piping signal tells a bee that it's time to swarm — or that the colony has been disturbed."
"The first in-depth national study of wild bees in the U.S. has uncovered major losses in the relative abundance of several bumblebee species and declines in their geographic range since record-keeping began in the late 1800s."
