Rachel Carson TV Special-PBS on 1-24-17

New TV film  “Rachel Carson” from WGBH.  Rachel Carson combined  three things: needing a sense of wonder to become curious and excited about nature; studying and learning through science about the natural world; and the need to publicize the risks and dangers of some paths, such as pesticides that were preventing birds and fishes from reproducing.  She wrote a neat book about exploring tidepools and learning about the ocean ecosystems and all the creatures interacting in it.  She wrote A Sense of Wonder, Silent Spring, and The Sea Around Us.
