GeekSpeak – the death of insects

Insects – we dislike most of them or regard them as a nuisance.  But we need them, all of them.  We need them as pollinators and as food for birds, bats, frogs, fish, small mammals.  We need some of them just because they are beautiful.  But they are declining at an alarming speed, at least in the western world, because of the widespread use of pesticides, huge areas of mono-culture and the destruction of insect habitats, such as hedges, woods and ponds.

Will insects turn into a limited precious resource?  Will we fight wars over insects?  Raid other countries for their insects?  Will we trade insects?  Will countries with plenty of insects be our future food powerhouses?  Will fortunes be made from rare insects?

What should be done to save the insects?  Should pesticides be banned?  Should farmers be paid to conserve insects?  Will it be a serious crime to kill insects?

Come and discuss our smallest frenemies at GeekSpeak.  Bring your bug spray.

GeekSpeak – ‘shoes and ships and sealing wax, cabbages and kings’

This week, after so many years and so many discussions, let’s talk about whatever we see in the future, in SL or in RL.  What do you think will happen, what do you think should happen?

And if you want to talk about the past, well let’s do that.  Come to GeekSpeak prepared to talk about anything and everything.  The future of Earth, our future in space, what happened millions of years ago, Star Trek, virtual worlds, the best way to cook chicken, anything at all.

Give your imagination free rein.  Tell us ‘why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.’
