Thread: Eisenstein quote

  1. #1

    Default Eisenstein quote

    "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man."

    And now the bees are disappearing...

    Is that supposed to be an Einstein quote?
    Does not sound real to me. Einstein was not known for his biology.

    From your news source:
    As Einstein supposedly said, ?If all the bees disappeared tomorrow, humans would have only four years left on the planet.?

    It is an interesting and disturbing story about bees, it does not need made up quotes from Einstien to make it legitimate.

    Just dont complain when the prices of fruits and vegetables skyrocket because there aren't enough bees to pollinate them all!
