Bill Maher talked to Canadian actress Ellen Page on Real Time about her work on the vanishing of the bees and their importance to our very survival and our ability to feed ourselves. Maher quoted Einstein during the segment who said this:

If you would like to find out more about Page's work her web site is here -- Vanishing of the Bees.
