Silent Spring At 50

Silent Spring At 50

Ratings: (0)|Views: 11,077 |Likes:
Published by Cato Institute
Widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement when published 50 years ago, Silent Spring has received little critical inquiry over the decades. In Silent Spring at 50: The False Crises of Rachel Carson, a team of experts explores the book's historical context and scientific foundations and the policy consequences of its core ideas. Their analyses reveal how Rachel Carson's iconic work contains significant errors, often substituting sensationalism for fact and apocalyptic pronouncements for genuine knowledge.
