Bee Power

New Scientist is carrying this report on how power company land management is affecting bee populations across the country. By changing the way they manage the narrow but very long right-of-ways high-tension power lines use, power companies have inadvertently created havens that shelter many different sorts of bees, some of them quite rare. While only a few power companies have changed their practices, these results could provide a powerful (ha!) public relations tool to combat the whole "power lines cause cancer" silliness.
