Appropriately enough for a show called the Buzz, we’re looking at bees this week. Yeah, you knew we had to take advantage of that pun sooner or later. Bees, agrichemicals, the food supply, politics, sociology, and international law — they’re all tied up together. We hear two different takes on the declining bee population. Entomologist Sainath Suryanarayanan blames the politics of beekeeping.
 

 


Our old friend Tom Philpott, of Mother Jones, reports that European bees have cause for celebration — American bees, not so much.
