Mobile phones not responsible for disappearance of bees: senior engineer

So Chinese scientists are cretins too!

Here we find some very dubious premises: if something hasn’t been proved you don’t investigate it: what matters is who you think should be blamed: if the radiation level isn’t high enough to heat the bee, it can’t be high enough to disturb its navigation system: it can’t be mobile phones because it might be something else.

In sum, whatever it is, it isn’t mobile phones.

If our future is in the hands of scientists like this, it is bleak indeed!

NINGBO, Zhejiang, May 15, 2010 (Xinhua via COMTEX) — A senior Chinese engineer said Saturday that no scientific evidence has proved that radiation from mobile phones had caused abrupt disappearance of bees since last Autumn.

“I don’t think handsets radiation should be blamed for the decrease of bees,” said Wu Hequan, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, at a forum on information and communication technologies in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, on the sidelines of the Shanghai Expo.

Some scientists are putting forward the theory that radiation from mobile phones interferes with bees’ navigation systems, preventing the famously homeloving species from finding their way back to their hives, according to a British newspaper The Independent.

Wu, also an expert in broadband information network, said radiation from mobile phones posed no verifiable threat to bees’ survival as the amount of radiation from a mobile phone base station was not even stronger than that from a microwave oven.

He pointed to rapid urbanization, decreasing plants and worsening ecological environment as a possible answer to the disappearance which started in the United States last Autumn and then spread to Europe.
