Ever read a book and wanted to share your thoughts on it with others? Join us in this second edition of the IMHO series moderated by Cheong Suk-Wai, featuring a discussion on the novel Silent Spring by Rachel Carson.
A watershed moment in the environmental movement, Silent Spring documents the adverse effects of the indiscriminate use of pesticides, accusing the chemical industry of spreading disinformation and public officials of accepting industry claims unquestioningly. As the environment becomes a key player on the global political stage, this session of IMHO returns to the text that started it all.
