Carson’s Silent Spring book is considered a landmark in trying to turn around the largely uninhibited environmental degradation in the U.S.A. during the years preceding its publication in 1962.
Meanwhile, in today’s U.K. Springwatch returned with my human parallel Chris Packham again leading the team.
Yes, regular readers probably guessed right, it’s Chris Packwolf, environmental correspondent at the Greenygrey.
There was lots of great natural wonders on view in last night’s first episode of this season’s Springwatch, which just made it in time to start in spring! There was good news from Iolo Williams presenting from Scotland, where a white-tailed eagle re-introduction from Norway is going well. They had become extinct in Britain. Maybe one day it’ll be wolves…
While there was also lots of great greenYgrey action, the best was definitely provided by the live shots of a blue tit family, who contrary to their names had a lot more green, grey and yellow than blue.
The chicks looked even more greenYgrey from above.
