The book has also been credited with being one of the catalysts of the modern environmental movement that inspired various terrorist groups like Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd.
Hmm I read that similarly as I'd read the Christian bible has been credited with the deaths of millions of men, women and children and Islam is responsible for terrorism. Or in other words, refer to the fringe elements to discredit something that could be good.
A wikipedia article on DDT states the book "questioned the logic of releasing large amounts of chemicals into the environment without fully understanding their effects on ecology or human health". That seems ridiculously sensible and intelligent.
I also read, "the US ban on DDT is cited by scientists as a major factor in the comeback of the bald eagle, the national bird of the United States, from near-extinction in the contiguous US."
As an objective reader who's never heard of this book, it's almost as if you
are engaging in hysteria as your posts seem very exaggerated and one-sided.
