Rachel Carson on a Sinister Change in the Sea

Rachel Carson on a Sinister Change in the Sea

In 1962, marine biologist Rachel Carson (1907-1964) launched the modern environmental movement with her publication of Silent Spring, which revealed the detrimental effects that pesticides have on the environment. If Carson were alive today, do you think she’d be pleased with the environmental state of the planet?

“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist: the threat is rather to life itself.” ~ Rachel Carson

In one accord: “Go Green!”

    Hi JoAnn! The people who could do something about this are selfish men and women. They think that they’re important but they fail to realize that those who will be remembered as great cared about the big picture. Politicians and corporations have gotten us into trillions of dollars of debt and they are caught up in games of espionage and war. They’re too afraid to risk their lives and lifestyles to change the status quo. They’ll just die rich and hope their kids can make it out okay!

      Thanks for putting that in a nutshell, Linda. Yes, they really must be impressed with their own importance. Still, it is hard to understand a total lack of concern for their own descendants. Maybe they think money can buy Nature.

      Agreed. Thanks for the link. For all of tRump’s boasting of being a business man, turning his back on renewable energy isn’t good business sense. He bows to the fossil fuel industry.
