Along with these facts, she explains how in many occasions the pesticides have done more harm than good in eliminating the pests they were supposed to destroy. Carson points out that many of the long-term effects that these chemicals may have on the environment, as well as us humans, are still unknown in addition to her report. The argument in Carson’s Silent Spring led to the passing of environmental legislation and the establishment of government agencies to better regulate the use of these chemicals (Griswold 2012). Kairos: While working for the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries, Miss Carson first became aware of the effects of chemical pesticides on the natural environment. Her main concern was the government’s use of chemical pesticides such as DDT, a colorless substance used as an insecticide that is toxic to humans and animals when swallowed or absorbed through the skin (Guralnik 1970).
“Cause and Effect” is a tool that David Suzuki prominently utilizes throughout his essay. This style of writing is appropriate for the essay because it points out the things that we take for granted and exposes the possible repercussions that may occur if we carelessly consume the finite resources our planet offers. Two examples of “Cause and Effect” are highlighted through our sewage systems and consumption of energy. Suzuki mentions that people often flush waste down the toilet without a single thought about where it may end up. The waste we flush away flows into streams and beaches that make it difficult for aquatic creatures to sustain life.
I will revisit the Accord in retrospect to today; how it has failed Canada and how much the science has changed thus far. She summarizes in her essay, the reasons why President George Bush was opposed to the Kyoto Accord. He objects to the first point, which consists of exempting developing nations “the Accord defeats its goals: emissions from non-participants will offset the sacrifices made by participants.” (Kelly, par. 2) Kelly argues that if the leading nations show leadership in reducing their gas emissions, then they could set an example for other nations. She also makes a point of teaching by example.
Culture, employee moral, authenticity, innovation, and environmental issues are all things that are focused on in their values. 2. What keeps other companies from having the commitment to environmental sustainability that NBB has evidenced? NBB has observed that other companies fail in having the commitment to environmental sustainability by overlooking the opportunity to recycle glass.

-Activists in India charged that the company’s bottling plants used too much water depriving local villagers of supplies for drinking and irrigation - Primary Stakeholders: Coca-Cola, local villagers, non-governmental organizations and India’s government - Expectations v. Performance: There were multiple concerns raised by stakeholders such as environment and government bodies, and various organizations that were creating awareness against the company due to the above discussed issues.

For decades people of various communities have been expressing growing concern over the quality of waterways and the drinking water supply. These communities receive the water piped into their homes or wells via lake or ground and with pollution levels on the rise the safety and quality of the water supply is being questioned. The people not only rely on this vital resource for sustainment but also for recreation and the growing concerns are valid because of many of today’s environmental practices or non-practices. Industry, institution, as well as individual, must make the commitment to improve practice of undesirable chemicals and compounds from ever reaching the water supply. Proper disposal of old tires, used oil and other automotive or machinery wastes are several of the forerunners of polluting agents.
