Robotic Bees Could Help Pollinate Crops As Real Bees Decline

Saul Cunningham at the Australian National University in Canberra says that using drones to pollinate flowers is an intriguing idea but may not be economically feasible. “If you think about the almond industry, for example, you have orchards that stretch for kilometres and each individual tree can support 50,000 flowers,” he says. “So the scale on which you would have to operate your robotic pollinators is mind-boggling.”

Brand New Elite Whistleblower Smashes Global Warming Science

A recent fraudulent study that claimed the uncomfortable “pause” in warming was really no pause at all. That study, pretending warming had never stopped, was timed to help negotiating nations at the Climate Summit in Paris. It was timed to help them enact draconian economic measures to reduce warming. But, Bates reveals, that study was cooked on several counts. It was such a mess no self-respecting scientist would sign on to it.
