Rachel Carson be damned.......................
That woman played a very large part in the deaths of untold numbers of human beings on this earth from diseases that could have been eradicated through DDT.
Despite her work, I remember times when a boy in the 50s and 60s when getting sprayed with it (fogged in fact and breathed it). This was to control disease carrying mosquitos.
She absolutely is responsible for their deaths. Ecologist my a$$.
