The ancestors of modern carpenter bees may have vanished from Earth roughly 65 million years ago, around the same time the dinosaurs were wiped out, a new study finds.

The new research suggests the bee extinction lasted about 10 million years.

The findings should generate great interest in the field, said John Ascher, assistant professor in the department of biological sciences at the National University of Singapore and a research associate in the division of invertebrate zoology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. But Ascher, who wasn't involved in the current research, said studies that use molecular phylogenetics tend to be "speculative in their reliance on unrealistic and insufficiently justified evolutionary models."

"I would be much more enthusiastic about the discovery of a reliable fossil within any of the extant Xylocopinae tribes (the authors note that there are none)," Ascher told LiveScience in an email.

Still, the findings could shed some light on the declines that are being observed in current bee populations.

The only valid experiment on climate change mitigation WOULD be lowering GHG emissions. Somehow I don't think that is what you reall WANT.

We BOUGHT the pig in a poke with carbon emissions. Now you want to put lipstick on it. That defies common sense.. Stick to what we KNOW (the science).

That's one experiment, not the only one. Go ahead and remove greenhouse gas from the atmosphere; that's what plants do with CO2. I'd like to see you try to publish in a peer reviewed journal.

Just lowering greenhouse gas emissions ad hoc isn't an experimental test. Neither is our use of fossil fuel; please look up the definition of 'experiment'. Adding or removing a controlled amount of greenhouse gas and measuring climate change would be a valid experiment, especially if you reversed and repeated the test at random intervals while searching for a climate signal.

Wait for the science to catch up to the hype.

Easing your conscience while profiting from destruction is hardly 'CHRISTIAN'.

Undoubtedly for private property that only YOU and your cohorts can 'enjoy'. This is also typical of the false Christian that tend to join the right wing.
Your hypocrisy is too stupid. Christianity is about being good stewards of the land for EVERYBODY and you have to put yourself into it, not just throw some small change at it.
I seriously doubt if you will ever understand Christian values. You have what you CONSIDER to be Christianity and can ignore it most days.
As you are doing with your responsibility to preserve the climate and resources for future generations.
Well all hype and no fact where should I start ? So we can all take it that you are a socialist because you don't believe that folks should own land or property / it all should be own and distributed by the god of govt.? Also can we all conclude that with you being a good little socialist - communist you don't believe in God but only the god of the power of the govt. to steal from those who produce and give to the one's who don't , because you were to lazy to get out of bed and work hard and make something of yourself , so now you want the govt. to take care of you and your ! God gives us all free choice to do as we want right or wrong and that includes to use science as a tool to help us survive or destroy but not to make it a false god as most of the so called x spurts on these pages do .

Oh swan song you see you are so WRONG because a true believer in God knows that the uses many messengers to spread his word , which YOU and other so called believer don't know !And no Iam just a mortal man just like the rest here no better or less before God.so many x spurts so little time .

Lynching County is wrong in his claim that "A true Christian would NEVER PUT SCIENCE BEFORE GOD". Science is not 'before' GOD. GOD made the world (so the bible says) but nothing says HOW HE DID IT. Learning about his works is an act of worship in my view, and probably most scientists. Lynching county is claiming that IGNORANCE is 'worship' which is silly and illustrates why HE is 'ignorant'.
Wrong there little commie the word is FAITH not worship ! You have to have faith to believe in the word of God that he created the heavens and earth and not worry how he made them , Again YOU PUT SCIENCE BEFOR GOD with your statement . Yet another x spurt in the ways of the Lord who has no idea of the difference between faith and worship , but maybe i am wrong he does worship the god of science and has no faith in the word of God .

You believe God created the universe. Man is part of that universe. Man has the ability to reason and learn. Do you believe that God created a logical universe? Do you believe that God gave man an inquisitive and logical mind for a reason? Science is man's perceiving of the universe by studying the evidences of the present and past. Therefore science is necessarily of God.

An education would help you skip such false accusations and logical errors.

Being a STEWARD of the land is what 'ownership' was based on. The state or king had the ultimate power over land and property. One reason it is called 'real' property with 'real' coming from 'royal'. The age of adventure caused a shift where the kings or states gave out 'partial ownership' to anyone that would IMPROVE the land (i.e be a good steward). The 'land sales' of the midwest were one example. Prove the land by farming it and you 'owned' it. Another example is the laws on 'squatters rights'. If you leave a land without good stewardship, ANYONE can 'move in' provided that they USE the land for a period that shows their commitment.

You fail to understand ownership as well as being a good steward.

You do not make a false GOD of science. In fact, you deny and abrogate your need to be a good steward of the land, raping and pillaging as your 'right' to freedom. That is not what GOD said in the bible.

The ones who LIVE a Christian life of generosity and good will, instead of greed and perversion are the ones that worship the true GOD. And I don't even restrict it to Christians. Any faith that lives up to the standards can be included.

But not to put science before God as many here do , As I have posted god has given us all the power ,right, will to do right or wrong and holding science above God or his word is wrong no matter how one tries to justify it in the name of science .

Exactly how is science being held above God, since all things are from God? Perhaps it is only the perceptions of man that are faulty. The human frailties of putting God into their perceptions. Some folks want to put themselves above others by using his word for their own personal gradification.
