How about making experiments, to show people the other side of the medal?

How about making experiments, to show people the other side of the medal? To show people the problems the progress have brought out? We can show that we can control future by studying chemistry and solving different problems? And the sollutions we can offer are effective and useful...

quite interesting! quite true that progress has brought in problems and the people already know about.....but to think about the perfect solution is really a tough job!

I think...  we should do it. To many people chemistry is associated with something bad: food additives, pesticides, etc. But nobody thinks about the fact: if we will not use pesticides we would have less food? much less... We can make people think about chemistry a little bit better :)

hmmm experiments based on applications of chemistry for starters such as u know common chemicals found around the kitchen...keeping the experiments simple so that any layman can understand it...maybe we need to devlop ways to reuse and recycle more effectively to avoid using toxic materila and stuff like that...
