About Bless the Bees
This beautifully illustrated edition http://amzn.com/B00EYOG02A is meant to educate the reader about the potential extinction of the bees as an indicator of a mass extinction, the last one of which was 65 million years ago. It explains what pollination is, who does it, why it’s essential to us, what things are threatening our pollinators and what we, as individuals, can do about it. Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdJbPENVnzY
They have been in existence for over 100 million years, but it has taken us less than 30 years to kill almost all of them off. Bees are responsible for pollinating 60% of the world’s food supply. Without them, the human race would face starvation. A worldwide epidemic, it has been called the bee apocalypse by Russia’s president, but it is worse in the United States than any other country. Since 1972, feral honey bees in the United States have declined 80% to near extinction, and domestic bees in the United States are down to 60%. Since 2006, the epidemic has been referred to as colony collapse disorder, describing the disappearance of entire colonies of bees.
Among the causes cited for this disaster of epidemic proportions are parasites, the decrease in abundance and diversity of wildflowers, insecticides and genetically engineered foods (GMO’s) that create their own synthetic pesticides which kill bees as well as other insects. But one thing is for certain-- mankind is responsible for the drastic decline in bee population and the United States government is doing nothing about it. On the contrary, the government has taken measures to make the problem worse.
There is more to this delicate 100 million year old evolution of pollination that just honey bees, who were not native to the United States, but imported from Europe and probably originally came from Africa. At least 4,000 species of wild bees are known to exist in North America alone. All of them are at risk, and this book will show you how you can make a difference in saving them, our food supply, and our planet as we know it.
“This beautifully illustrated book should be read by each and every individual living on this planet as the fate of our bee population is of global concern. Without pollination a whole natural cycle would be broken, thus strongly impacting our lives.” - Top Books Worth Reading
“Bless the Bees” is a formidable resource for anyone who is concerned or wants to learn more about the unclear future of bees as a species. This book is informative, well written, well-researched, and highly resourceful. I applaud the author Kenneth Eade for compiling such an excellent reference for readers" - A.C. Haury, Bibliophile Book Reviews
