In these challenging times when environmental protections are under attack, and the cumulative effects of our fossil- fuel dependence are causing global consequences, it is important to reflect on the message of hope and renewal. Rachel Carson's words of precaution in protecting the living Earth resonate today not only as a warning not heeded but also as an expression of confidence in the resilience and stability of Earth's living systems.
Join local Rachel Carson scholar and energy expert Patricia DeMarco, author of Pathways to Our Sustainable Future: A Global Perspective from Pittsburgh, for a conversation about local conservationist pioneer, Rachel Carson. Carson's book Silent Spring inspired a global environmental movement -- and even today, her impact on how we view our role in protecting nature lives on.
6:30 p.m. at the Cooper-Siegel Community Library (403 Fox Chapel Road, 15218). Free and open to the public. For details and to RSVP, click here.
