It's quite possible the fish could survive. Mayhaps we all should start thinking about gills and plankton.
Thanks for reassuring me that what I quoted about Einstein was correct. My brother tells me so many things that he reads or hears that I sometimes get all the info correct. Since you have knowledge of Einstein saying this I feel better.
Since I brought up this topic, I took the time to attend a local Bee Meeting here. They all seemed to avoid discussing this and most of them felt it was a 'wait and see attitude'. People who are interested in beekeeping are of a different mindset the norm. They have a kind of thinking to preserve rather than change. I would like to have bees if I had the space. That is what most of them aim for. Lot of them had the hives located on open areas until they would own some land.
I thank you all for your attention to this thread. As I said, if it takes only one maybe we can be that one! I sure think we have to.
