Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring at 50: Catalog of tributes


Over the year so many tributes, commentaries, and wild-hare critiques keep pushing Rachel Carson‘s Silent Spring back into our memories, and relevance.  Too many to list and comment on, but I’ll make a list of those I found most informative or useful, and of a couple I found most repugnant.

I’ll update this list from time to time.  I’m using this as a file for my writing as well, but some of this stuff needs to be shared more broadly — and of course, I appreciate corrections and pointers to other good sources.

    Good for Bonnie Brunken! Lady bugs, or lady birds as they are sometimes called in the South, take out the aphids and leave the butterflies alone.

    A better way to keep pests out of gardens.

    I had a teacher in High School, Bonnie Brunken, who was an early environmentalist, held Carson in high regard. I remember her telling us about buying lady bugs by the thousands rather than using pesticides.
