Bees & Bats & counting...

These bats, with their White Nose Syndrome, reminds me of the bees and their Colony Collapse Disorder. What ever happened to the bee story?

NYTimes article: Bats Perish, and No One Knows Why

Sad to see so many little critters die. Is it fear mongering in a time when people are on edge about the economy/climate change/terrorism/etc to make this such a big story?

Seems the scary thing is that it is another unexplained event. We don't have an answer or control. And in specific sense it is another uncontrollable force that may have an impact on the food supply in the near future and raise food costs even higher...following the logic that bats eat bugs which if left unchecked will hamper food production.
