I’m surprised that a good publication like Fast Company sees the challenges confronting the bees of the world as an invitation to inspire the re-engineering of nature. There is so much that we don’t know about nature’s sweet and even some of its savory resources that we must explore before we turn to instinctively simple STEM reactivity. Food empowerment efforts would give voice to much better choices and is at least a part of what the nickel-a-meal initiative is all about – inspiring better choices and funding the means for making those options viable. It would be better if these options were better explored before trying to balance out all sides of a false dichotomy.
BAD BUZZ, Fast Company!
