Discover the groundbreaking environmental work of Rachel Carson, whose book “Silent Spring” explores how human actions threaten the balance of nature.

--

In 1958, after receiving a letter describing the deaths of songbirds due to the pesticide known as DDT, Rachel Carson began an investigation into the misuse of chemicals and their toll on nature. In 1962, she published her findings in “Silent Spring,” which immediately drew both applause and impassioned dissent. How did this biologist and writer ignite such controversy? Mark Lytle investigates.

Lesson by Mark Lytle, directed by Héloïse Dorsan Rachet.
