Originally shared by Mike ElganI wonder if the threat of mass starvation might get people to consider organic agriculture.

Bees are being wiped out by a long list of issues. One major issue is pesticides and fungicides, which not only kill bees, but weaken their immune systems and make them vulnerable to various diseases another issue. 

Food companies and consumers use these chemicals because they make food cheaper. But now they're on the brink of making food VERY expensive due to shortages. 

What will it take for us to reject industrial agriculture? Will the threat of starvation and massively high food prices do it? 

What do you think?
