Happy Earth Day! In 1962, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring was published, documenting the detrimental effects of the pesticide DDT on birds and bringing environmental concerns to the American public. The resulting outcry led to a nationwide ban on DDT for agricultural uses and inspired an environmental movement that led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
