Name Course Institution Lecturer Date THE SILENT SPRING The silent spring is a book authored by Rachel Carson. The book contains a vivid description of the environmental degradation in the United States that has been caused by pollution due to the use of chemicals. The book starts with the author describing the nature of the community in the town outskirts. She notes the thriving of farms and growth of a range of green vegetations. The picture of the beautiful winter and abundance of birds is a show of life and health (Litmans and Miller 18). After a short while thing turns around there inactivity in the farm and the green vibrant vegetation that grew beside the roads withers away. These are the consequences of a continuous use of insecticides and pesticides (Gore 19). The use of chemicals in the farming and as a control measure can cause the extinction environmental cautious documentation that cites the environmental hazards posed by the current methods of farming insect and pest control. Personally I agree with Carson on the state of environmental degradation and call for more friendly means to suit the environment. Pests and insects can be controlled through the use of biological knowledge. It's worth noting that insect eradication is crucial and comes with its pros and cons thus evaluation of the available options and effects is necessary before adopting any available method (Carson 10).
