Letter: Bumble bee die out is caused in part by climate change


Climate change is part
of bumble bee die out

Re: “Climate change seen causing ‘mass extinction’ ” (Page A2, Feb. 8):

I was shocked to read that the population of bumble bees in North America has dropped by half since 1901.

This made me think about the impact bees have on me, and I realized that most of the foods I consume, from the orange I eat in the morning to the almond milk in my latte, depend on bees.

As the article’s writer notes, rising temperatures due to global warming are a culprit in this massive die out.

We must reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the most effective way to do so is to place a fee on carbon sources and return the revenue equally to all American households.

Please write to and thank Rep. Anna Eshoo for cosponsoring the Energy Innovation Act (HR 763) and urge Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris to continue their support of climate legislation.
