Not a lot to celebrate actually....

Rachel Carson may be responsible for killing more people in the 20th century then Mao or Hitler. Her book was not science based but the world bought into it and as a result the only viable way to supress Malaria was banned. Mosquitoes are estimated to transmit disease to more than 700 million people annually. between 1 and 2 million people die from malaria every year. (The actual number may be higher but since there is billions in funding to fight AIDS many malaria deaths in Africa are attributed to AIDS.)
