Silent Spring at 50

  • Roger Meiners
  • Widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement when published 50 years ago, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring had a profound impact on our society. As an iconic work, the book has often been shielded from critical inquiry, but this landmark anniversary provides an excellent opportunity to reassess its legacy and influence.

    Roger Meiners, editor and author of Silent Spring at 50: The False Crises of Rachel Carson, discusses the implications of Rachel Carson’s work on the John Batchelor Show.
