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.
We do different things and they yield different results. Global issues are the results of human activities. We have failed to see the long term view for earth. We are of the view that it is right to consume everything that is available. We want speedy growth but that is not right.
