Who is Rachel Louise Carson?

Rachel Louise Carson was named by Times as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. So, what did she do to get her there?

She was the writer of "Silent Spring" in 1962, which brought environmental concerns caused by synthetic pesticides to the American public. Her efforts led to the ban on DDT and other pesticides in USA and inspired the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

I came to know about Rachel Louise Carson because Thankachan was inspired to create a presentation about her and had it posted on SlideShare.

Who is your inspiration for a green lifestyle?
