Should we worry about "saving the bees" as part of "saving the planet"? Just like with climate change, we may well have been upsetting a natural balance which may be coming back to haunt us.

Have you watched what has been happening to honey bees around the world? It is not as if we have left them alone to do their own thing. We make artificial hives, and basically cultivate bees like farm animals in some cases to our own detriment.
Check out this story on honey from China:

And here where honey from China was sent to Australia, relabeled as Australian sourced and exported then to the USA:

So, I don't exactly have a big point to this except to say that yes, we can cause global problems for each other that the earth doesn't just heal on its' own for us. From us extracting and releasing all the helium with reckless abandon to trying to give antibiotics to bee colonies, we have taken control of so many things on our planet, and it is up to us to make sure we do things rationally and clean up after. If we leave a mess we have to live in it.
