The agencies being referred in Rachel Carson's <em>"Silent Spring"</em> are the state and federal agencies.
They are being reduced to the "so-called control agencies" because they don't really know much about the <em>effects of chemical insecticides</em> and how <em>potentially dangerous </em>they are to living things, yet they are the ones who allow its distribution to people.<u> They control the insects in the world</u> by allowing spraying operations, however they don't have any idea on how much damage they are causing to the world. Carson reduced this agencies <u>because they were spreading </u><u><em>"misinformation."</em></u>
"Silent Spring" was a book that stirred the public's attention. It talks about the bad effects of using chemical pesticides to the environment. Many critics opposed the book, yet it was able to move the Congress. This resulted to the operation of the Environmental Protection Agency in <em>1970.</em>

A roller coaster can feel like flying because similar to how you would imagine flying to feel like (almost free-falling, liberated, vulnerable, yet invigorating, etc.), a roller coaster enables you to feel the same way, you are high up in the air racing at fast speeds and looping in some way that somehow defies the laws of physics ✨ yes fun stuff
Essentially, roller coasters can feel like flying because flying and roller coasters give the same feelings of excitement and also being high up in the air, since being on the ground won't take ya anywhere.
