Meanwhile in Puerto Rico... Insects are disappearing on an ever-greater scale, suggesting we're approaching an "ecological Armageddon", according to scientists.

    Mean while, on the next episode of bullshit. We'll talk about how tide pods are healthy for you and why the earth is flat.

    Maybe the hurricane had an effect on insects..... Maybe the insects are so busy building their news homes, that they don't have time to stop and chat with the scientists.

    In all fairness I believe they are just moving onto other country's. I see different insect species every year in the UK especially in my garden. Some are a bloody nuisance to be honest with you and some scare the hell out of me not knowing if they are poisonous or not.

    whereas the rainforest has the most biodiversity and is always green

    Todo lo que el hombre hace es extraordinario , pero también destruye, para aniquilarse así mismo, que ironía en lenta agonia.

    Will it have an impact on humans also? Scary but interesting.

    Unfortunately many people do not understand ecology and the vital role insects play. Fear makes us irrational and we use poison to kill everything we'ree afraid of. As if poison does not affect us. Light pollution is another serious effect on insects that is not being addressed.
