    Description

    Conservationist Rachel Carson spent over six years documenting the effects on DDT, a synthetic organic compound used as an insecticide, on numerous communities. Her analysis revealed that such powerful, persistent chemical pesticides have been used without a full understanding of the extent of their potential harm to the whole biota, including the damage they've caused to wildlife, birds, bees, agricultural animals, domestic pets, and even humans. In this book, Carson discusses her findings and expresses passionate concern for the future of the planet and all the life inhabiting it, calling on us all to act responsibly, carefully, and as stewards of the living earth. Additionally, she suggests that all democracies and liberal societies must operate in a way that allows individuals and groups to question what their governments have permitted to be put into the environment. An instant best seller that was read by President Kennedy during the summer of 1962, this classic remains one of the best introductions to the complicated and controversial subject.

    A wonderful heads up for life.

    Having lived thru a number of the events of witch she speakes in ignorance of their effects, I am now mindful of my actions. I am not ruled by fear and fearmongers. Conscious that the earth is covered with ONE biomass, I do not act on my small bit thoughtlessly.

    Environmental wake up call

    This book is as important today as it was when originally written. The author did a wonderful job communicating scientific examples and the impact chemicals have on the environment, wildlife, and ultimately us.

    A must read for all.

    This subject is as relevant today as it was when it was first published. Sadly we have not heeded the warnings so passionately and scientifically stated by Ms. Carson. It shoukd make us all think carefully about the use of chemicals in our everyday lives.

    Truly Enlightening Inspiration

    In a world full of chemicals, this piece is still just as revelant as it was when Rachel Carson wrote it. The speaker has a soothing voice and speaks with passion. There wasn't a single chapter that didn't give me goosebumps. I recomend this book to every entomologist, grower, agriculturalist, and chemical company.
