Almost fifty years after Rachel Carson called our attention to the dangers of pesticides like DDT, the world faces a similar environmental disaster. In a riveting detective story that melds science and politics, Michael Schacker examines the evidence for Colony Collapse Disorder¯which is wiping out beehives across America and beyond at an alarming rate¯and offers a plan to save the bees. Like An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring before it, A Spring without Bees is a compelling cautionary tale and a clarion call for action.
“At last, an authoritative account of the vanishing bees. . . . At once a great detective story and an object lesson of how to live in harmony with the living planet, our home.”¯Thomas E. Lovejoy, Biodiversity Chair and former President, Heinz Center for Science, Economics and Environment
“A must-read for all of us who want to live in a sustainable and regenerating world for many generations to come.”¯Anthony Rodale, Chairman Emeritus, The Rodale Institute
