discussion topic 2 silent

Read the chapters by Rachel Carson titled “A Fable for Tomorrow and The Obligation to Endure” from her book “Silent Spring” and discuss your thoughts relative to the use of pesticides and the general use of chemicals throughout our everyday lives. Is the scenario that Carson describes in the chapter a possibility? To what degree are pesticides/chemicals/fertilizers necessary? What are the alternatives and are the alternatives viable? Have you seen any of the alternatives in use? Do you use any of the alternatives? These are some of the points you can discuss. Feel free to expand on the topic and questions as appropriate. You may want to search other sources to substantiate any comments or thoughts.
