So why did these people spread DDT and pollute the earth? What was their incentive? It couldn't have been for people and mother natures health, it was for money and some people just don't care what their doing to their fellow people or Earth, they care about keeping their high income salaries. This is the kind of world we live in. If it wasn't for Rachel Carson's teachings and writings how would things be today?
Many believe nature should be left is, and when we involve ourselves with nature we can really mess things up. When we started hunting wolves to help the deer survive, we noticed that more deer were dying then before. Why? Because their was a shortage of food for the deer and they were starving to death. So when we tried control the natural order of things it backfired. We lost more wolves and deer because of it, this is why people believe nature is at its equilibrium before we involve ourselves. Just because humans are more intelligent then all the other animals we think that we own this earth and can do whatever with no consequences. Its weird to think about how things would be if we didn't inhabit this earth and mess with things. Since man has evolved, we have been constantly creating things that benefits us. For example, we created motor vehicles that transport us at fast speeds without breaking a sweat. This obviously is a positive thing for us, but like always we create problems for the environment we live in. Man can now travel at speeds impossible to travel on foot, but at what cost? Every time we push on the gas pedal we are polluting the air that we breath in every second of the day. The polluted air isn't just effecting us, but it is harming
