    That's actually a Myth.

    By losing bees, we'd lose all of what, honey and plants that require pollination?

    Not a myth, perhaps I was overly general with 'we die' but large portions of us would.
    Bees are a rather vital link in the ecosystem right now, and there are not many species that could replace them quickly enough to avoid an ecosystem crash in temperate climates.  We would lose a large proportion of our food crops, and significant biodiversity.  The resulting pressure for resources would inevitably lead to conflict.  We can engineer crops, but there would certainly be an ecosystem crash, bees are currently irreplaceable in the temperate ecosystem.  Humanity may survive it, but it would be at significantly reduced quality of life, and vastly greater chance of severe war and population loss.  It is definitely something to be concerned about.

    The Meat industry would be fine, there's plenty of crops that'd be fine, all in all, I'd say it's worth it to get rid of those goddamn flying stingers.

    Then you, my friend, are either extremely bad at maths, or very misinformed.

    There is no way that 'getting rid of flying stingers' (bees do not sting unless provoked) is worth ecosystem collapse.  That is just daft lad.
