Notes

Abstract: This pamphlet discusses the effects of chemicals on people and the environment. Chemicals provide many benefits to mankind. They also create a wide variety of problems. In this pamphlet, the author will examine some of the benefits of chemicals to mankind. The author also will examine some of the problems chemicals have caused, are causing and may cause in the future. Obviously, we seek to have the benefits outweigh the problems. Whether you feel that the benefits outweigh the problems depends to a large extent on your understanding of the issues, your economic condition, your philosophy of life, and many other factors. Basically, the author hopes to share with you his perspective on the use of chemicals and identify some of the opportunities and challenges facing us as interdependent citizens and residents of communities throughout Texas and indeed the world.
