How relevant is Rachel Carson's 1962 book 'Silent Spring' today?

As relevent as it was then. We live in a "Closed Environment" if we turn it into a "Sewer" we will be living in a "Sewer". And if the "Sewer" we create is not compatible with most of life on this planet, we are doomed. It's about as simple as that. Poke a big enough hole in the bottom of your boat and guess what.............it will sink ;-) TommyTrouble

How is Rachel Carson famous?

Rachel Carson was a marine biologist and environmentalist. In 1951, she wrote a best seller, "The Sea Around Us" but she is best known for her 1962 book, "Silent Spring," which some sources say launched the environmental movement. This book exposed the dangers of DDT and other widely used pesticides of that time, and showed the harm they did to plants, fish, animals, and the environment in general. Not everyone agreed with Carson's findings, but she did call attention to the issue of keeping the environment safe; her work led to efforts to make safer pesticides that would not be so toxic.
