Rachel Carson on a Sinister Change in the Sea

JoAnnChateau.com - Environment
Summary:

I imagine marine biologist Rachel Carson thought sounding the alarm might save the environment at the time she published Silent Spring in 1962…

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!”

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
