Silent Spring for Rachel Carlson
Republican environmental critic blocks honors for Rachel Carson
Rachel Carlson, who's groundbreaking book "Silent Spring" helped launch the environmental movement, was up for a Congressional honor until a Republican Senator got wind of it. From Raw Story:

Just another exercise in earth-hating, brought to you by the Republican party.
