When did the government start getting into environmental affairs?

    Governments have always, sporadically, passed laws which might be seen as “environmental” in nature, but the environmental movement as we know it today didn’t fully form in American politics until the late 1960s. Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring” as a key factor in getting the government to examine and eventually ban the use of dangerous pesticide (DDT) for environmental reasons. This could be seen as the “start” — in America, anyway — of the current phase of government involvement in environmentalism.
