I'm calling this "Anthropogenic Colony Collapse Disorder". I watched an episode of "Second Look" on KTVU where they focused on beehives and Colony Collapse Disorder.
Republican responses to this crisis would be:
1) There is no crisis
2) If there is a crisis, there is no proof it is caused by us hauling bees around the country
3) If bees are dying, there is no proof we need bees
4) If bees are dying, it might even be a good thing. I mean, heck, who likes getting stung by bees?
5) The whole crisis is invented by greedy beekeepers trying to get their greedy beekeeper lucre.
