I believe that we need to be more respectful of nature. It is clear that we do not at this point in time have a full understanding of nature. Althought each time we mess with it we are gaining some insite as to how nature might react to such changes. Our pass failures are giving us better understandings to us and our future kids. We should now know that a wide spread us of a chemical to remove a pests from a big area is dangrous to the ecosystem. I believe boyle should us best that the effects to the eco system are usually not full understood until each chain reaction is nearly completed. Who would have guessed that the use of pesticides to kill flys/mosquitoes would have cause a near plague appademic. Also the easiest solution (using DDT) might not be actually easy. It did set of a chain reaction of events in the story that each costed time, and money in order to treat. The treatment was actually to stop using the DDt because it only made things worst unless we are going to be constantly important cats from countries. Even after the cats die their bodies will still be full of the chemicles and i'm not possitive but could containate water, as well as kill anything feed off their dead carcus. Then the savengers will become sick and the cycle will continue until the DDt reaches safe leaves for large enough animals. I found it quite interesting that in the article they importated cats with one ear, no ears, broken tails, and some without half a tail instead of big musclular killing machine cats. I think it's suppose to show that we are cutting corners trying to save money to solve real problems but in reality we are wasting money for stuff the works but will leave other problems. Since we don't know what we are doing we should just try and leave no foot print on the world that way there is less chance of a negative change happening.
