What would Rachel Carson make of our world today? What would she think of fracking? Of the worldwide proliferation of toxic chemicals? Of government efforts to bend the rules for industry? Of industry’s penchant for discrediting scientists who tell the truth? Would she be surprised, or simply dismayed?
