“Perhaps the finest nature writer of the Twentieth Century, Rachel Carson (1907-1964)   is remembered more today as the woman who challenged the notion that humans   could obtain mastery over nature by chemicals, bombs and space travel than for her   studies of ocean life. Her sensational book Silent Spring (1962) warned of the dangers   to all natural systems from the misuse of chemical pesticides such as DDT, and   questioned the scope and direction of modern science, initiated the contemporary   environmental movement.”

About this blog:

“Veganism acknowledges the intrinsic legitimacy of all life. It rejects any hierarchy of   acceptable suffering among sentient creatures. It is no more acceptable to torment or   kill creatures with “primitive nervous systems” than those with “highly developed   nervous systems.” The value of life to its possessor is the same, whether it be the life   of a clam, a crayfish, a carp, a cow, a chicken, or a child.”
Stanley Sapon, Ph.D.
