Rachel Carson's Silent Spring alerted a large audience to the environmental and human dangers of indiscriminate use of pesticides, spurring revolutionary changes in the laws affecting our air, land, and water. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Lord Shackleton, a preface by World Wildlife Fund founder Julian Huxley, and an afterword by Carson's biographer Linda Lear.Now recognized as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century, Silent Spring exposed the destruction of wildlife through the widespread use of pesticides. Despite condemnation in the press and heavy-handed attempts by the chemical industry to ban the book, Rachel Carson succeeded in creating a new public awareness of the environment which led to changes in government and inspired the ecological movement. It is thanks to this book, and the help of many environmentalists, that harmful pesticides such as DDT were banned from use in the US and countries around the world.Rachel Carson (1907-64) wanted to be a writer for as long as she could remember. Her first book, Under the Sea Wind, appeared in 1941. Silent Spring, which alerted the world to the dangers of the misuse of pesticides, was published in 1962. Carson's articles on natural history appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, the New Yorker, Reader's Digest and Holiday. An ardent ecologist and preservationist, Carson warned against the dumping of atomic waste at sea and predicted global warming.If you enjoyed Silent Spring, you might like John Christopher's The Death of Grass, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.'Carson's books brought ecology into popular consciousness'Daily Telegraph'Very few books change the course of history. Those that do include Silent Spring'Linda Lear, author of Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature

Electronic devices, circuits and systems are often over-weight and more difficult to house because they waste a lot of scarce electricity in their idling mode. Considering the global concern about energy conservation, it is worth redesigning these electronic devices to minimize their idling power in order to better channel the available energy into more productive use. Public address systems waste a significant amount of energy during silent intervals in the input speech signal. In this work, an energy-efficient public address system with minimal idling power consumption was developed. A microcontroller circuit was used to control a flexible timing, switched public address system based on detected silent speech intervals. There was a thousandth reduction in the idling power consumption of the developed system, which culminated in a better management of speaking activities. Speaking facility managers as well as manufacturers of energy-saving technologies would find this interesting.

Heavy metals in Fish and Water: A Case Study of...
35,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In recent years, there has been an increasing ecological and global public health concern associated with environmental contamination by heavy metals. They are dangerous because they cannot be transformed by micro-organisms and therefore accumulate in water, soil, bottom sediments and living organisms. Heavy metal pollution not only affects the quality of the atmosphere and water bodies, it threatens the health and life of animals and human beings by way of the food chain. This book provides an insight on how these silent killers find their way into our water bodies, the pathway of these metals in the food chain, their effect on the aquatic organisms and man. It also sheds light on the heavy metal contamination of the Orogodo River and fish species obtained therein, hazard associated with consumption of fish species obtained from the river. The book is written in simple language and well packaged to educate the general populace on the detrimental effect of these silent killers and how their entrance into our water bodies can be curtailed.
