Waimea a good example of ‘Silent Spring’

Waimea may be one of the best examples of “Silent Spring,” written by Rachel Carson and published in 1962. “Silent Spring” describes corporate damage to the environment by spraying pesticides and corporate cover ups. In Waimea, chemical companies spray 17 times more restricted-use insecticides per acre than on ordinary cornfields in the U.S. mainland, reports the Center for Food Safety.
