Integrated Pest Management
There is no best a! to deal ith "ests in agriculture. Pesticides are commonl! used# but this
ma!
cause man! "roblems. Combining different management o"erations is the most effecti$e a! to
control "ests.
%irstl!# the chemicals in "esticides ma! build u" as residues in the en$ironment. This
reduces the &ualit! of farm "roducts. %urthermore# "ests can graduall! become resistant to
"esticides. This means that neer and stronger ones ha$e to be de$elo"ed.
Some "esticides affect non target animals such as fish and bees. This disturbs the balance
of nature. To i"e out agricultural "ests com"letel! ma! be $er! e'"ensi$e. Sometimes "est
damage costs less than the method of control.
%inall!# understanding the ecolog! of the area hel"s a lot in "est control. Natural enemies
can be used to control a "est. Pesticides that do not affect the natural enemies should be
chosen.
Therefore# integrated "est management is a safe and more effecti$e o"tion in agriculture.

To Sides of Nuclear 5nerg!

Nuclear energ! is commonl! offered as an alternati$e to o$ercome the crisis of energ!.
Some "eo"le agree ith the utili6ation of it because of benefits. Some others# hoe$er#
disagree because of its risks to en$ironment and also to all li$ing creatures.
Those ho come along ith the o"eration of nuclear reactors usuall! argue that the energ!
"roduced from them can be used for multi "ur"oses. The reactor can generate radioisoto"es
used in medical# industrial# and agricultural fields. The! also claim that nuclear energ! is the
onl! feasible choice to anser the e$er7increasing energ! needs. The other sources of energ!
such as oil# coal# and li&uid natural gas are not reneable and safe# hile nuclear energ! can
be sustainable "roduced in a safe a!.
Some go$ernment officials also "oint out that this kind of energ! is the safest one in
res"onse to en$ironment com"ared to the nonreneable ones mentioned abo$e. The! claim
that the reactor o"erates on -a 6ero7release. basis# hich means that aste materials are
"rocessed do that none ill be released into. In reaction to the en$ironment# the! add that the
o"eration of nuclear reactors does not make sense. Some N89s s"eciali6ing in efforts to safe
en$ironment argue that their aste "roduct com"letel! destro! en$ironment and human li$es.
9n the other hands# it is trite that the other kinds of energ! like coal and oil su""ort the
en$ironmental "ollution# but their contribution to destro! en$ironment and li$es cannot be
a$oided. 1 meltdon in a reactor# for e'am"le# results in a contamination of soil and ater
under7its core# making human li$es im"ossible for miles around. The reactor is also dangerous
to li$es because of its radiation leaking.
It is ob$ious that nuclear energ! should be a$oided because it endangers en$ironment. If
e continuo using it# hile radiation is $er! "oorl! controlled# it ill kill oursel$es sooner or later.
The go$ernment should "a! more attention to the fact and re$ise the choice.

a. The nuclear energ! on<t endanger our en$ironment
b. The energ! sources such as oil# coal# and li&uid natural gas are the reneable ones
c. The reactor is ha6ardous to li$es due to its radiation leaking
d. The nuclear energ! is harmless to the li$ing creatures because of its radiation
