  12 1.Question :(TCO 1) The author of our course textbook states that "the principle scholarly contribution of the book is the concept of ecological dialogue." Briefly explain what is meant by ecological dialogue, and give an example or illustration. Pick a major environmental problem and describe how you would solve it using ecological dialogue.Student Answer:Ecological dialogue is about constantly discussing the differing factors of the concrete and ideal aspects of society. Since we live in a material world in which we utilize raw or altered substances, we always need to discuss the best ways in which we can use them to benefit us and our environement- the animals, etc, without abusing the earth and its inhabitants. This is an ongoing process, as events and technology are always changing, and we must keep up with and include these changes in regards to our dialogue to benefit everyone and the circumstances in the world. Not everyone will agree with how this can be achieved, but the dialouge is an important step in achieving the best results. Thus ecological dialogue is a reality that continues to be a part of our constant efforts to improve our world situation.
