And yet, when she released "Silent Spring", she was trashed by other scientists and big chemical corporations. After all, DDT and other pesticides were big, big business. She was labeled a "hysterical woman", amongst other derogatory names.
Thank God she stood strong and held to her beliefs, refusing to back down. She set in motion a chain of events that have benefited all of us, the environment and wildlife. A remarkable woman.
ETA: I also have her book "A Sense of Wonder". I love it.

Thank God for Rachel Carson who did so much for our health and well being. Fighting corrupt greedy corporations who don't care about anything but profit isn't easy and I salute such an asset to the cause. These are the people I admire and respect and who hold important places in society in my opinion.
