1907.

Hoy, 27 de mayo, nacía RACHEL CARSON (f. 1964), bióloga marina y conservacionista estadounidense considerada la precursora de la conciencia medioambiental.
Rachel Louise Carson elaboró una reflexión, a la vez científica y poética, sobre la situación del medio ambiente.

Sus primeros libros cosecharon un éxito inesperado en este género literario, lo que le permitirá consagrarse a la literatura, viniendo del mundo científico.
Tendió un puente entre ciencia y militancia y encabezó el nacimiento de una toma de conciencia social sobre los problemas del medio ambiente.

Nació en Springdale, Pennsylvania.

Se graduó en el Pennsylvania College for Women (Chatham University) en 1929.

Da #RachelCarson a #GretaThunberg: un secolo di lotta per la difesa dell’ambiente

prefazione di @RossellaMuroni
postfazione di @danieladucato

#leragazzesalverannoilmondo
Non è un caso che siano le donne a scandire, con la loro determinazione, la grande lotta del movimento ecologista e a offrire un punto di vista diverso, che forza le gabbie concettuali in cui ci siamo mossi per troppo tempo.

Malgrado il potere crescente degli spacciatori di egoismo, malgrado i negazionisti, ancorati a un passato che ha già saccheggiato presente e futuro, sembra che stia scorrendo sotto traccia, inarrestabile, un’energia nuova.

The end of another semester of engaging students with @WikiEducation at @MissouriSandT @sandtcasb in #HistSCI means another tweet thread about this super fun project.
49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look!
I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_S._… is 1 product.
Tycho's sister, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_Br… was another article that needed work. The women who worked on this one had to find all sources on Tycho then sift through for the 2-3 pages about Sophia. Thank goodness for good #librarians at S&T who were patient and helpful!
