To mark the 50th anniversary of "Silent Spring," Rachel Carson's landmark book that helped launch the environmental movement, the Center for Ethics in Science and Technology presents "Alternatives to Insecticides: High Impact Solutions Without Environmental Trade-offs." In this talk, Stephen Welter of San Diego State University focuses on biologically based alternatives to insecticide use in American agriculture that also consider non-target environmental effects, worker safety issues, and consumer needs as well as the more traditional models of economic trade-offs.
