Earth Week

Once again, we approach Earth Day, founded in part by Ira Einhorn, The Unicorn Killer.  It isn't Earth Day's fault; there is a lot of good associated with ED, and with the whole ecology and environmental movement.  I randomly listen to Glenn Beck on my way to work, and the last few days he has featured the history of Earth Day.  I am not endorsing any political slant, just noting he mentioned Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" and Paul Ehrlich's "The Population Bomb."

I am inspired to reread these books, beginning with copies from my own library. When we last taught Carson, I didn't get the inkling GB did that she spawned Earth Day.  She was writing and warning against overuse of pesticides, or so I thought.  The birds also may have left her yard because she had, well, a lot of cats.  It would be silent.

Read for your selves, and come to your own conclusions.  I also recommend "The Norton Anthology of Nature Writing."
