Science: Gordon Hempton: One Square Inch of Silence
In 2005, Gordon Hemptons search for the quietest place in the United States led him to a peaceful site in the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park. This year, he's hoping it will lead to congressional action with the designation of a 20-mile no-flight zone over the park, helping to federally declare the worlds first quiet sanctuary. In his impassioned book One Square Inch of Silence, the Washington acoustic ecologist recounts his cross-country journey to capture the sounds of American landscapes and the reflections of Americans on the importance of quiet in their lives. It's an eloquent call to arms against the agents of manmade noise, and a defense of natural quiet. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures with Pacific Science Center, KUOW-FM and University Book Store.
