“Rachel Carson was Right” buttons
WHY was Rachel Carson RIGHT?
Rachel Carson (1907–1964) was an American marine biologist and nature writer whose writings are credited with advancing the global environmental movement, which led to the initiation of Earth Day.
Disturbed by the reckless use of synthetic chemical pesticides after World War II, Carson used her communications skills and her background as a marine biologist to warn the public about the long-term effects of toxic pesticides. In her book Silent Spring (1962) she challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world. She also alerted the world to the dangers to public health of atmospheric nuclear weapons testing.
She was attacked by the chemical industry and some in government as an alarmist, but courageously spoke out to remind us that we are a vulnerable part of the natural world subject to the same damage as the rest of the ecosystem. Testifying before Congress in 1963, she called for new policies to protect human health and the environment. Rachel Carson died in 1964 after a long battle against breast cancer. Her witness for the beauty and integrity of life continues to inspire new generations to protect the living world and all its creatures.
