In the passages “If I Forget Thee, Oh Earth” and “Silent Springs” the authors discuss a problem and how it impacted the environment. In “If I Forget Thee, Oh Earth” the problem is caused by a nuclear war. On the other hand, in “Silent Springs” the problem is caused by a strange blight that affected the town.
The story “If I Forget Thee, Oh Earth” is based on a boy and his father. Marvin who’s forced to live in a lunar colony and would never return to Earth, because it has been destroyed by a nuclear war. It all started when Marvin and his father drove out the compound. Marvin then sees that the sky is blacker than it usual but filled with stars. They continue to drive and suddenly, where it should be all dark Marvin sees a beautiful white light. As they’re looking out of a planet he describes as silvery, bright and beautiful. He wonders why they can’t return, and he thinks back to Armageddon, and realizes that the poisonous glow in the dark. Lastly, his father tells him about the destruction of Earth, but Marvin would still like to return to Earth.
In the story “Silent Springs”, is based on a once beautiful town, which now has been destroyed. In a beautiful and peaceful town where you can hear all sounds of animals in harmony is now destroyed. As usual, the animals were eating, people hunting and fishing, and they’re building barns. Until one day a strange blight crept over the town and demolished everything. Some evil spell settled the town making the animals sick, and even killing them. Some farmers spoke of new sickness in the families. The doctors were getting more confused by different kinds of sickness among their parents. Their vegetation start dying, therefore they couldn’t get the food they get originally. Could you imagine living in this town? Well, it doesn’t exist. The author states that these disasters can happen in real life, and some people already suffered from it. Also, he states that the tragedy is caused by the people.
These two passages may be different but they also have things in common. They both have people in the stories that are affect by their environment. Also, the causes are caused by the people.
