From Calm Leadership, Lasting Change
By Nany F. Koehn
Rachel Carson sparked up the environmental movement. Her goals was to share her observations of the environment to the world. Then started to receive leadership. When she was writing her book she was dealing with breast cancer and had very young children. This book took her many years to finish although she received negative feedback from uneducated people about DDT she remained strong and became a leader for the environmental responsibilities. Her book also had an positive affect on many people whom feared the chemical companies. People started making small changes because of her book, Our environment has improved a lot since then and we should continue to help it.
I find it amazing how this book made a huge difference in the U,S. I find Rachel Carson a very amazing person because she had so many problems while writing the book from things like breast cancer to raising an adopting young children and yet she still became successful. I admire her a lot. She help ban DDT and the clean water act was passed. Her medical problems were limiting her work but she still worked though it and argued about the pesticide DDT and how it affects human health, animals and the environment.
