March is Women’s History Month, so it seems appropriate to honor Rachel Carson and other women who helped frame the climate change conversation.

Carson worked as a marine scientist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, primarily as a writer and editor.

In 1941, she published “Under the Sea-Wind” about the interactions of a sea bird, a fish and an eel in the open seas. Then came Carson’s popular book, “The Sea Around Us,” published in 1951.
