1. The authors suggest we need to reevaluate how we look at media history due  to the fact that media history is told in a dark and depressing way. The book  gives an example that the mimetic fallacy doesn’t explain why films privileged  white actors over black. This paints media history in a poor light due to the fact  that most people would view this as racism. In reality, the reason the films  preferred white over black was due to the fact the dye couplers were not  developed enough and that was not the priority of the movie industry. This is just  a general example of the light that media history is seen and described in. 2. The book describes that most people are one of three opinions. There is one  extreme view that the protection and safety of people is first, and that nature  comes second as long as humans will not be harmed. The opposite extreme  view is that nature is the basis of everything and that we cannot survive as  human beings without the well­being of nature. The third view is one in the  middle of the two. These people believe that the safety of both humans and  nature is important and that we must figure out a way that protects and  conserves both.  3. In the West Virginia chemical spill, they used a chemical to clean up the spill.  However, the chemical used harmed the drinking water. The one view would say  that another way of cleaning should be used because its harming the populations drinking water and putting people in harms way. The opposite view would say  that they should continue cleaning the same way because the population can  hold off on using their water for a little, while the mess is cleaned up. I would  assume the middle opinion would say something similar that the human  population would have to make a sacrifice for the environment in order to have a cleaner earth to live in later
