Some people believe that the Earth is being harmed (damaged) by human activity. Others feel that human activity makes the Earth a better place to live. What is your opinion? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer?
I believe that the Earth is being both harmed and damaged by human activity. I will give a few chief reasons and detail them. I believe that the Earth is being harmed and damaged by human activity, primarily because of the damage we are doing to the environment.
The first example I have of the damage we are doing to the environment is the chemical problem we have. These days people are using chemical substances for fabric, cottons and other materials. When the people finish using chemical substances there are often chemical dregs. Now, here is the problem, some people put these dregs in the drain and let them just flow into the sea, or into the rivers. That is sure to be bad for the environment and the Earth. The chemical dregs that flow into the sea can effect or deform animals. For example, a duck could be born with no wings, or no toes, the fodder fish, or the black water plant could be affected too. Chemical substances are really dangerous substances.
The second example I have of the damage we are doing to the environment, is the rubbish problem. Some people put their rubbish, such as candy covers, plastics, and other things that are small, on to the ground and they don’t recycle. Did you know that plastic takes more than 500 years to become part of the solid ground? Did you also know what plastic bags take more than 200 years? That is a lot of time. When talking about plastic bags, some intelligent people say “but there are also environmentally friendly plastic bags!” You see? Some people know that there are environmentally friendly plastic bags, but why don’t they use them? That kind of thing is really mysterious to lots of other people.
The third example for why I think we are damaging the environment is the factory problem. Factories are one of the things that make a lot of pollution. They have chimneys that emit bad gas which pollutes the air. They also use chemicals which are bad for the environment. The chemicals have bad environmental effect on the water, it pollutes the water, and pollutes the ground. I am not saying that all factories should have to close down, but could they think in an environmentally-friendly way? The environment’s pollution levels are really important, because it can effect badly on our bodies. Air pollution can affect our ability to breath, water pollution can affect our skin, and lastly the ground pollution can affect all sorts of different cancers, such as lymph node cancer and stomach cancer.
To conclude, I believe that the Earth is being harmed and damaged by human activity.
