Does the apocalypse begin with a food shortage brought on by bees?

Thought Catalog has a brief post about bees dying all over the world, and how this effects the global food supply.  Specifically:

citrus fruits, apples, onions, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts, courgettes, peppers, aubergines, avocados, cucumbers, coconuts, tomatoes and broad beans, as well as coffee and cocoa

That is a pretty diverse list of yummy foods – and I don’t want to imagine a world without those foods.

Because I hate being all doom and gloom, I am hoping the esteemed scientists will figure out how to genetically modify those foods like they did the banana.

As for why bees are disappearing, my guess is either messed up electromagnetic fields, pollution, or the Black Eyed Peas.
