Green Thumb Sunday / Tribute to Rachel Carson
This post is dedicated to Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring, on the centennial of her birth. In Silent Spring, this courageous woman criticized the use of synthetic pesticides and examined in detail their detrimental effects on plants, animals, and the human body. The book set in motion a wave of events that ultimately led to the banning of DDT.
