Our planet needs more people to bring light to the environmental impacts of our ignorant behavior as Rachel Carson has. Rachel Carson was a marine biologist and a very influential American environmentalist that published the award-winning book Silent Spring in 1962. Her book is world wide known and is noted as a book that every human should read. You can see purchasing information online on amazon by clicking here. This was the start of an increase of environmental awareness of the 1970s and so on. It can be difficult to argue against multi-million dollar companies that are a crucial part of our economy yet Rachel Carson succeeded and her efforts lead to the ban of DDT used for pesticides.
