Rachel Carson
Quote by~Rachel Carson
For the sense of smell,almost more than any other,
has the power to recall memories and
it is a pity that you use it so little.
Rachel Carson worked at Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts, and taught at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins. In 1936, she took a job as a writer with the US Bureau of Fisheries (which later became the US Fish and Wildlife Service). Over the years she was promoted to staff biologist, and, inCarefully researched over 4 years, the book documented the dangers of pesticides and herbicides. She showed the long-lasting presence of toxic chemicals in water and on land and the presence of DDT even in mother's milk, as well as the threat to other creatures, especially songbirds. 1949, chief editor.
President John F. Kennedy read The Silent Spring and initiated a presidential advisory committee. In 1963, CBS produced a television special featuring Rachel Carson and several opponents of her conclusions. The US Senate opened an investigation of pesticides.
The President's Science Advisory Committee issued a report in 1963 largely backing Carson's scientific claims. By 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was established as a cabinet-level position, and in 1972, DDT use was banned.
