Overview

This is the first of several programs in the Ethics Center's 2012 Silent Spring Series. 2012 is the 50th anniversary of publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, a seminal book that helped to increase awareness and launch the environmental movement.

The focus of this program will be biologically based alternatives to insecticide use in American agriculture. We hope you will join us for this important discussion about how best to produce sustainable agricultural practices.
