Silent Spring is a book written by Rachel Carson in 1962. It has been credited with helping to start the environmentalism movement in the United States.
Michelle Malkin and Michael Fumento wrote:
A daunting theme runs throughout Silent Spring — that man’s ingenuity would be his own worst enemy. And therein lies the essence of Rachel’s folly. Carson and her intellectual heirs in the environmental movement embrace a mistaken vision of technology. It is an impaired vision that considers only the risks of industrial chemical compounds, and not the risks created by their absence.
