Some people believe that the earth is harmed by human beings. These people point out the fact that human produce a lot of rubbish and many pollution, such as air, noise and water exist in the world and threaten ourself. However, other people believe that human can make the earth better than in the past. They say that new technology make the place more advance and lively and more suitable to live. As far as I am concerned, I think earth is harmed usually by human activity than made better.
The main reason is that over this century, human activity create many pollution problems and the resources in the earth become fewer and fewer. What we can see is that many food, such as duck, ox have virus recently. It is the problem of food chain. For air pollution, one can find that concentration of carbon dioxide becomes increasing years by years. The reason is that the smoke from the vehicles is so dense and the petrol oil usually contains lead and this element is toxic. For water pollution, one may find that many rubbish can be found on the sea and the fish will be harmed by this rubblish or oil leaked by the large oil containing vessel. In fact, due to the careless mistake of human, many unnecessary accidents happen.
Others may argue that human made thing better and the environment can be improved by the advanced technology. Government authority can do something to force someone under control. That may be good. But one remember that some accident is unwilling for human and they done it by accident. This is out of control. Also, is there any machine that can absorb the toxic gas in the atmosphere. One may argue that in the future, the electric vehicle will replace the car using petrol oil. Some car also can use the sun energy instead. But, I think it is a very long distance for someone to drive the electric vehicle and they may be very expensive also.
Apart from the pollution problem, the resources in the earth is decreasing years by years. The main reason is that amount of oil or natural gas is fixed and they cannot be reproduced by human or the earth itself. You may found the many scientists tried to investigate other types of energy. But, how about the result? We cannot say that there is no result, but we still use the oil, natural gas or coal for most of the part now.
Finally, the point I am trying to make is that human in fact can do so limited and the earth must be harmed and it cannot be a living place anymore in the future. It is just the problem of time.
