See this ‘recommended diary’: This is the most important underreported story (w/poll).
[Colony collapse disorder] needs to get immediate attention, and it should get that attention ahead of Iraq, global warming and every other issue, because if the bees die off, we won’t be far behind.
The diary provides a nice round-up of article links (mostly the second-round of local coverage of the problem). I report this in a similar vein to Sports Illustrated covering global warming.
DailyKos is a political blog. There is some environmental coverage from time to time (especially global warming). But 90 percent of it is inside the Beltway and local netroots political organizing stuff. To make the recommended diary list requires the votes of your fellow readers at the site.
Bottomline is: At least among lefty bloggers, this is an issue that has some staying power — even in the face of all the other issues we face.
