APPLE RIVER, IL – Copies of “Silent Fall”, Mr. Ingram’s latest book are now available to purchase. This book explains how Mr. Ingram believes that the cause of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) in honeybees is caused by Roundup and other agricultural sprays that have been sprayed around his community. In fact the book is dedicated to all of the beekeepers who have lost their bees and colonies to our agricultural sprays and have received no compensation from the farmers or the chemical companies or the government. The cost of the book from ENF is $10.00 plus $4.00 shipping and handling.
The book also documents how these sprays have for the past 35 years killed most of the birds that were living in this area of the country. It explains how many birds used to be living in this area as documented by Mr. Ingram’s banding birds as a Master Bird Bander for over 50 years, and how now there are either none or very few left, with almost no birds seen migrating south this fall.
Over 55 years ago Rachael Carson in her book Silent Spring wrote about a hypothetical spring with no birds. Mr. Ingram is writing about a real silent fall with no birds present to sing or migrate that has been and is being caused by these agricultural sprays.
As a kickoff for this book Mr. Ingram will host a book signing on Saturday afternoon, October 20th, at the Burpee Museum in Rockford, Illinois when ENF sponsors two programs of Live Raptors at 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
