No one can deny the fact that the earth is being impacted by human activity more and more, as the development of science and technology. There are two views to the impaction. Some people believe that the earth is being harmed by human activity, and others feel that human activity makes the earth a better place to live. When it comes to me, it seems that we can not tell which one is more reasonable without some close investigation, because they can be concluded from different reasons and examples. Afterward, I will explain my opinion about it.
Everyone know that as the development as the progression of the human civilization, the earth is becoming a garbage bin with all of the waste being produced, a desert with more and more forest being destroyed and a tomb with so many spices of animals being killed out. Only one of these three tragedies is enough to support the argument that the earth is being damaged by human activity. But let us get down to fundamentals and agree that everyone who supports this view is not unarmed in the wild with the fear of being preyed by beasts, and is not naked in the blizzard. They are after all enjoying the modern civilization.
So, on the other hand, human activity indeed makes the earth a better place to live, if I can say so. For example, we construct houses to live in, make food to feed ourselves, make clothes to keep warm and so on. If it were not for human activity, few of us can live on the original earth.
If all of those reasons are contemplated, I will accept both of the views organically. After all the human activity is the fundamental difference between the human beings and animals, and the human civilization will never progress without it. But if out activity does not stand to the order of the nature, we will sure do harm the earth.
