“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.” ― Rachel Carson.
We’d do well today to remember what Rachel Carson said in her 1962 bestselling book, Silent Spring. It blew the lid off harmful pesticides endorsed by industry and government, and inspired future generations to steward the world like one of America’s greatest biologists turned bestselling writer and environmentalist.
But how many of us are willing to fight the destructive forces killing our planet and resources?
WS Changemaker of the Week
This week, we applaud our WS Changemakers of the Week – twin sisters and fearless environmental warriors, Lauren and Kaitlin Grierson. The sisters continue Carson’s fight to save our planet and were recognized by the United Nations for their efforts to build a collaborative-based solution to climate change in their nonprofit, TreesCO2.
Read their story in our latest ENGINES, Volume 6. Thanks to three generations of the Matthews family – the girls for TreesCO2, Cathy Matthews for our WS Cares article “Generate”, and mother Kae for inspiring this powerful legacy!
