[Ambassador report] [Monthly report] Silent Spring review

It's better late than never to post the book review. I eventually finished this the real page-turner novel by reading it from cover to cover. 

Rachel Carson for the first time published all chapters as articles on New York Times columns and after that they had combined as a whole book about ecology. The surprising moment is that book had been written in 1960s, even though its topicality is raising in geometrical progression in the current decades.

I discovered the nazardous impact of the pesticides, insecticides in particular, on the agriculture sector and damage on the living organisms as birds. This is a model case of literature influence on the development of society and its fundamental procedures. Amendments on the pesticides and DDT use were made and US Enviromental Protection Agency (USEPA) was established. Later her apprentice Patricia Hynes published a following book called "The Recurring Silent Spring". "Silent Spring altered the balance of power in the world. No one since would be able to sell pollution as the necessary underside of progress so easily or uncritically" - replied she when the Spring Silent made a resonance widely.

Silent Spring pays attention severely not only on this field, moreover, describes the various detrimental actions humankind does on the overall ecosystem. This came to the establishment of the 'deep ecology' ideas and the number of ecofeminism supporters and feminists in science increased significantly.

In conclusion, I highly recommend this bestseller to everybody interest in the environmental agenda.

    Hello Yerdaulet,

    Thank you for your book review, and I saw there are also few ambassadors who read about the Silent Spring. We should always be cautious of use of pesticides for the sake of our environment, and I hope there are many takeaways after reading this book.

    Hello Yerdaulet

    Thank you for the recommendation. When I first read the silent spring, it was a real shock.
    Along with negative impacts of pesticides on the environment, this book tells us about how human actions can bring disastrous consequences.
