Our project aims to explore a possible correlation between U.S. carbon emissions on the U.S. honey bee population. Honey bees are critical to our society and climate change threatens that security. Will carbon emissions, a major contributor to climate change, influence the number of honey bees in the U.S.?

I like the layout of this poster because it makes everything easy to read. You used the perfect amount of details for each section so that it gets the point across without being overloaded with information. How do you think the US can continue working on decreasing carbon emissions, post covid?

Your group chose an interesting topic, as I haven’t considered possible correlations between greenhouse gas emissions and honey bee populations. While there ultimately appears to be a very small negative correlation, the topic makes me think about other factors that can have a more direct impact on honey bee populations. Is it possible that deforestation has a significantly larger influence on honey bee population numbers? The presentation also mentioned that the presence of Chinese wasps could have influenced honey bee populations, but I was wondering how exactly the wasps have this kind of influence. Do Chinese wasps specifically hunt honey bees or frequently disrupt beehives?
