Bless the Bees Number One on Amazon Kindle Store for Conservation and Environment
Date:9/9/2013

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Author and Environmentalist Kenneth Eade announced today that his environmental awareness book, Bless the Bees: The Pending Extinction of our Pollinators and What We Can Do to Stop It, http://amzn.com/B00EYOG02A achieved number one best seller status on Amazon.com today in the category of environment and conservation.

The beautifully illustrated edition with photos by professional photographer, Valentina Eade, is intended 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.

Bees 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. They 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 among honey bee colonies has been referred to as colony collapse disorder, describing the disappearance of entire colonies of bees.

Among the causes of the bees' demise are parasites, the decrease in abundance and diversity of wildflowers, pesticides 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.

The book is still in its promotional phase, but 50% of all royalties will go to non-profit, http://beebay.org.
