    If I had a time machine and the ability to change the past the birth of the environmental movement as the result of "Silent Spring" would top my list of things to fix. The movement has made almost everything worst than it would be if it never existed in the first place.

    Ignore "Silent Spring"

    Can you imagine how far ahead we would be if our space program would of stayed funded at 1970 levels. At inflation of course.

    We would have all the resources of the inter-planets today.

    Paper is like the internet. I does not care what you put on it.
    Putting something in a book either book does not make it true.

    I read the article. Your title is a fraud, just like you.

    As in, "drill anywhere but here"?

    How about we go back in time and snuff out "Gasland"?

    That bullshit has killed jobs and stifled potential economic growth while depriving this country of resources we'll never find in the final frontier.

    Yup, them good ol' days;

    Donora Smog of 1948

    Between Oct. 26 and 31, 1948, 20 people were asphyxiated and over 7,000 were hospitalized or became ill as the result of severe air pollution over Donora, Washington County, the Monongahela River town of 14,000.
    The investigation of this incident by state and federal health officials resulted in the first meaningful federal and state laws to control air pollution and marked the beginning of modern efforts to assess and deal with the health threats from air pollution.

    The following articles offer a variety of perspectives on this important event in Pennsylvania’s environmental heritage.
