Default Google celebrates 107th birthday of US biologist Rachel Louise Carson's

Internet giant Google celebrate American marine biologist Rachel Louise Carson's 107th birthday with a doodle.Mr. Rachel Louise Born on May 27, 1907 in Springdale, Pennsylvania, Carson is famous for advancing the global environment movement through her writings.

Since early childhood, she had a great passion for environment and had spent a lot of time exploring the forests and streams around her home.

Disturbed by the excessive use of synthetic chemical pesticides after World War II, she began focusing on the ill-effects of chemicals and pesticides on the environment. She wrote a book, "Silent Spring" in 1956, and called for a change in the way mankind viewed the natural world.

Carson was attacked by the chemical industry lobby, but she fought against them and called for new policies to protect human health and the environment.

Carson died in 1964 after a long battle against breast cancer.
