Nature Notes 6

Rachel Carson is better known for her pioneering work, Silent Spring. Her book, The Sea Around Us, is of equal importance and now, some 70+ years after it was written we can see how accurately she foretold of the fate that awaits us too.

“It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea though changed in a sinister way will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself.”
