Silent Spring

Lunghezza: 12 minuti
This classic brought the dangers of pesticides to public attention and inspired the environmental movement.

Rachel Carson’s 1962 environmental-science classic “Silent Spring” led to the banning of DDT in the US and inspired the modern environmental movement. In this Snapshot, you’ll follow her scientific yet poetic presentation of the data that shows how pesticides contaminate air, water, and soil, wreaking havoc on ecosystems, wildlife, and the human body.
