Bumblebees face mass extinction amid ‘climate chaos’, scientists warn

‘We have now entered the world’s sixth mass extinction event — the biggest, most rapid global biodiversity crisis since a meteor ended the age of the dinosaurs’

This is sad!

A massive decline of bumblebees — the world’s most important pollinators — is now underway due to “climate chaos” and other human impacts on the world, scientists have warned.

A new study reveals bumblebees are currently disappearing at rates “consistent with a mass extinction”, and are on course to be wiped out in just a “few decades”.

I'd like to see the science journal version. Are there any that aren't behind a paywall?
