“In the Sichuan province of China, there is an abundance of orchards but no bees. Thousands of people are hired to climb fruit trees and hand-pollinate the flowers with small brushes because natural pollinators like bees have been killed by pesticides”

— Jed Fuhrman, holder of the McCulloch-Crosby Chair in Marine Biology at USC College (via climateadaptation)
