We avoid one and buy the other because of what our senses tell us – particularly taste and smell. See what you can find out about the water quality in New Brunswick or your hometown – look online and/or make a phone call and ask the relevant public official. You should also try contacting a bottled water company and see what kind of response you get. Describe what you can and cannot find out – and how hard or how easy it is to find it. What does your search tell you – what does it imply? 9. Frank Kaler talks a lot about preventing such problems as pollution instead of reacting to them. To what extent do you think we can or have learned this lesson? Can you think of examples of situations that might have been prevented but were not and/or actions we have taken that have prevented potential problems? Overall, are you more optimistic or more pessimistic about us learning this lesson? Why? 10. People often rationalize their inaction by saying something like “one person can’t make a difference”.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
