Albert Einstein is supposed to have said:
“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”
And he has been quoted widely and credited with the remark in National newspapers and, apparently, on thousands of blogs.
But Einstein, though he knew a lot, didn’t know anything about bees. There are many people still searching through Einstein texts, trying to discover if the quote is correct and from which lecture or publication it has been taken.
But he didn’t say it.
It’s just a rumour.
