Rachel Carson Council

Rachel Carson, a scientist and gifted writer, enchanted the public with her first three books about the sea. In her last great work, Silent Spring, she sounded the alarm about the hazard of chemical pesticides. Its publication in 1962 generated a mountain of mail from an aroused public asking questions about pesticide effects. Although she was ill, and often overwhelmed, Rachel Carson faithfully answered letters until shortly before her death in 1964.

In response to her hope for an enduring means of meeting the public’s needs, a year after her death an organization was formed by friends and colleagues to continue her efforts. The founders shared her concerns about pesticide problems. The organization was initially called the Rachel Carson Trust for the Living Environment. In 1980 it became the Rachel Carson Council, Inc. For more than 20 years, Shirley A. Briggs served as Executive Director. Dr. Diana Post, the former President and Executive Director, served for more than 20 years. Today, the RCC Staff is led by President, Dr. Robert K. Musil.

The Rachel Carson Council (RCC), founded in 1965, is the national environmental organization envisioned by Rachel Carson to carry on her work after her death. We promote Carson’s ecological ethic that combines scientific concern for the environment and human health with a sense of wonder and reverence for all forms of life in order to build a sustainable, just, and peaceful future.

Student Environmental Action Coalition

  • SEAC believes individuals that want to change the world they live in, can do so efficiently, and more importantly, creatively, if they work within groups that have supportive infrastructures and value human collaboration, and imagination. For this reason, SEAC places an emphasis on anti-oppression and collective liberation, both internally, and externally. 

    SEAC focuses its strategies on environmental justice issues and methods for communities to be self-sustaining.

  • Mission:

     

    To build a network of diverse grassroots struggles that transcends current fabricated, oppressive constructs by sharing stories, skills, knowledge and radical analysis to dismantle destructive systems, and replace them with sustainable communities of resistance and collective liberation. We define the environment to include the physical, economic, political, and cultural conditions in which we live.

Sustaining Way

Sustaining Way, a 501(c)3 formed January 2012, is an interfaith non-profit that brings together diverse individuals and organizations to find and proliferate affordable ways to care for people while caring for the environment.  The Sustaining Way model employs low-income/jobless individuals to run a mission focused on enabling communities, especially low-income communities, to better provide for themselves through the use of sustainable practices. We do this through the purchase and upgrade of an underutilized property in a strategic location and the selective employment of an individual with skills and passion for sustainability. This individual lives in the home and serves as the house coordinator. The home and landscape are sustainably remodeled to serve as an education center, demonstration site, and as a base of operations for the coordinator in working with the community to proliferate sustainable practices. After a few years of development, the coordinator has the skills necessary and is assisted in finding full employment outside of the mission. Through this model, Sustaining Way intends to create a continuous cycle of bringing individuals and developing them while they empower the community around them. With over 35 partners, our initial project, Annie’s House, is ideally located just off the Swamp Rabbit Trail in the historic downtown Greenville neighborhood of Nicholtown.

The Climate Reality Project

Today, climate change is standing in the way of a healthy tomorrow for all of us. But at Climate Reality, we know that practical solutions are right in front of us. We can create a healthy, sustainable, and prosperous future by making a planet-wide shift from dirty fossil fuels to clean, reliable, and affordable renewable energy.

Reaching net zero carbon emissions is the key to our collective prosperity and well-being for all – and we can take a huge step closer if we all work together. So we’re uniting millions to make our leaders seize this historic moment and sign a strong agreement in Paris in December and work to continually reduce emissions and expand renewable energy in the years that follow. It’s our opportunity to put the planet on a path to the future we want – and we’re grabbing it with both hands.
