Ideas For Discussion The constant growth of Arizona’s population has created many problems that need to be solved: pollution, transportation, energy supply, water shortage, and waste disposal are just a few. The growth of population has also brought new jobs, new ideas, and a better life for many. What are the arguments on the question of “Growth” or “No Growth”? Is it possible to stop the growth of population in the state? Many magazines and newspaper articles have been written about this issue. Talk to people who represent groups on both sides of this question. Examples might be your local Chamber of Commerce, a member of the city council, or a member of the legislature. Write one page arguing for one side; then write another page arguing for the other side. Bushmasters emblem Chapter 13 • Review Activities  137
