Climbing human population's food sources threatened by bumblebee population decline?

The global human population is estimated currently to be 6,892,000,000 and increasing, almost out of control, by 203800 every day. As this human population's consumption of food increases accordingly, the populations of other species, which it consumes or upon which it depends for the growth of plant food, is declining at an alarming rate. An example of the latter is four common species of the bumblebee in the United States, the abundance of which has dropped by 96 percent! Much of the food crops in the US depend upon the bumble bee for pollination to reproduce. How humankind will be able to continue to feed itself, unless this decline in bumblebee populations is stopped is not known. (Originally published as "Decline in some species along with over-abundance of humans" in Your Say.)

Now population growth is turning the Peninsula into a desert. Research and graphs by Malcolm Legg and Hans Brunner.
