Essay 219 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
People have been living on the Earth for thousands of years. Human activity influences the Earth. Some people believe that the Earth is being harmed by human activity. Others feel that human activity makes the Earth a better place to live. In my opinion, the earth is being damaged by human activity. There are many statements supporting my opinion.


Human activity has damaged natural environment and almost exhausted natural resources. Modern industries need more and more resources, including minerals, fuels and water. So we are facing the serious problems such as the lack of fuels and water. Ecological balance is being damaged because factories occupy many places where animals and plants live. More and more buildings are constructed and forests are becoming less and less. If we cannot recognize these problems and solve them soon, we would finally lose the environment suitable for us to live in.
Another serious problem is “the greenhouse effect.” Human activities decrease forests and increase the usage of fuels so that carbon dioxide is being output more and more and there are not enough plants to absorb it. The greenhouse effect is more obvious in recent years. Due to the effect, icebergs in the South and North Pole is melting and the ocean level becomes higher than before. I am worried about the cities nearby the oceans and hope scientists can find an effective method to eliminate the greenhouse effect.
Although we have advanced machines and our life seems to be more comfortable than before, we have less chances to approach the nature and limited space to live in. The cities are becoming bigger and bigger. If we want to have a picnic with our friends, we have to drive a long distance to find an open space. In fact, the skyscrapers and factories are damaging the spaces for human activities.
From the above statements, we can conclude that human activities bring the Earth many damages. Fortunately people have recognized the problem and I believe that the Earth will become a better place to live with our ceaseless efforts to protect the environment.

When it comes to the issue of the relationship between human beings and the Earth, some people suggest that the Earth is being impaired by humans, while others maintain that men have made the Earth to be a better place to live. As far as I am concerned, the latter point of view carries more weight.
In the first place, in the modern society, we usually do not have to worry about how to survive, or in other words, to continue our lives. However, in ancient times when there was virtually no man-made equipment, life was much harder than what it is now. If creatures in the world did not know how to build houses, or did not know how to obtain fire, it would be very hard to survive in the arduous environment. With the inventions of men, we can now have lives of much high quality. For instance, most people are not able to acquire enough food to survive, but also can have almost any food they want at different times of year because of man-made greenhouses and refrigerators. In short, human creations have provided plentiful recourses for living things so that we now can live much better.
In the second place, creations of men enable people to go to most places in the world, thus making peoples’ lives much more interesting. A case in point is that, with the inventing of automobiles and airplanes, people now travel to most places to experience more things in their lives, although it was substantially impossible for anyone to travel this long distance before the advent of these inventions. Because of a variety of inventions by humans, the Earth is becoming a more and more interesting place to live because we can go a lot of places in a much shorter time.
In the third place, although human activity may have caused some problems for the Earth, the environmental problem, for example, but humans are trying to looking for effective solutions to these problems.
In conclusion, although human activity may have some drawbacks, its advantages far outweigh its disadvantages, because human technology allows us to acquire many things we want, and our lives is of more and more interest and convenience with the use human technology.
Essay 221 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
Some people believe that the Earth is being harmed by human activity. Others feel that human activity makes the Earth a better place to live. Which ones are right? After pondering it from several aspects, personally, I totally agree that the Earth is being harmed by human activity.
From wood to iron, from coal to petroleum, human need more and more resource to support their development. Our planet gives us everything we need, but natural resource is not endless. People deforest grown trees without planting young trees. Soon more and more forests are deforested and gradually turn into desert.
The population increases quickly. There are more people than ever, living longer than ever. For example, today there are over ten million people in a big city. What a tremendous number! To feed millions of people, more fields are needed. To hold the growing population, cities extend a lot. Large population makes the Earth overburden.
Human activity also produces a lot of pollution. Factories dump waste to into water. Also more and more exhaust air is given out. White pollution can be found everywhere. Noise can be heard here and there. What a bad condition! All of these must harm the Earth.
From all we discussed above, we can see that human activity really harm the Earth. We must take action to heal the Earth, for our home, for you and me.
Essay 222 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
I believe that the earth is being harmed by human activity even though we live more convenient than before. For centuries, people keeping on changing their natural environment to have better life. However, all these make great damages to the Earth.
The most obvious damage is the decreasing of the forests. In china, many areas in mountains and are used for farming lands. Lots of trees are cut down for building. The result is deserts occupy more place in north, while there are more floods in south in summer. The second damage is the pollution. Specifically in large cities, factories and automobiles make air full of dust and mist. Even in midnight I can hear the noise of car running on the way. I remember when I was a little girl the river is so clear that we children often jumped into it after class. But now it is so dirty that nobody wants to touch it. We often miss the blue sky, beautiful river, flourish trees and flowers. How pity it is if we can only find them in dreams.
Some might argue people have made great progresses in the modern society. One can travel the entire world in several days by taking airplane. Mother can hear her son’s voice by telephone and fell free about his health who worked faraway. Yet, natural, the most beautiful and magical thing in the world, is damaged as a cost of all the modern technologies.
In sum, I concur that we should cherish our environments. Changing our life is important, but be care for mountains, lakes, forests where we live with everyday.
Essay 223 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
I think that people have not been thinking about saving the world they live in and have been damaging it for a very long period of time. And now many international organizations are doing their best to heal the ‘wounds’ of the Earth.
Since scientists discovered that there is a hole in the Earth’s ozone layer we have been trying to find out which of people’s activities harm world and whether it can be undone. Since this terrifying discovery new ozone friendly deodorants have been invented. They are becoming more and more popular every day because people do care about the destiny of Earth and they do not want to be “baked” by the solar energy.
Another problem that we have caused to the world is cutting of forests. Every little child studies at school that forests are the lungs of our planet and we are taught that it is very good if in our life we plant at least one tree. Many hectares of forests are being cut just because a fat businessman has decided to build there either a supermarket with parking lot, or a highway.
Next comes the problem with the nuclear energy. Are these nuclear power stations as important as it is stated? Is there a completely safe nuclear fusion used in these power- plants? No, there is not. Many people still remember the tragedy on 26 April 1986 called Chernobyl. And nobody wants it to happen again.
If my statement that people harm the Earth is not true how can we explain that new things are being invented just to stop or slow down the Earth’s destruction?
Essay 224 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
When it comes to the issue whether the Earth is being harmed by human, different people hold different point of views due to their past experiences. If I were faced with this issue,
I would probably say that human activities have harmed the earth. In the following discussion, I would like to present few of the important reasons to support my view point.
The most important reason is that human has polluted the Earth since the industrial revolution. For example, we produce millions of cars each year in the past century just to grant the demand for consumers. Every family in North America has at least one car and some of big families even have four or five cars. The carbon dioxide produced by all these cars every year is one of the main sources of air pollution. In some big cities, the color of the sky has turned from blue to gray. Oil leakages from the ships during transportation pollute the ocean and kill animals living in it. Factories release untreated toxic water into the environment, which kill wildlife. Do not you think the examples quoted above are very persuasive?
Over exploring resources on the Earth harms the Earth is another head and chief reason that I have chosen to put here. As we all know that many resources provided by the earth such as coal, oil, and other mines are finite. If we use them wisely, it can support human for an unlimited period of time. But according to a recent report, we can only use them for another 50 years with the current rate of exploring. We are taking them out of the underground way faster than we should. We are damaging the Earth by attacking its natural resources. If you can understand this, you can understand my viewpoint more deeply.
However, some human activities have tried to make the earth a better place. For example, we have planted trees in the city to help carbon dioxide absorption; we have created programs to save endangered animals. Nevertheless, we take more from the Earth than we give to the Earth, so the most striking conclusion is obvious.
To sum up, given all the reasons discussed above, we can safely reach the conclusion that human activities have harmed the Earth. In fact, not only I think this is true, if you have known more about our current horrible environment, you would agree with me as well.
Essay 225 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
Nowadays our Earth faces a number of serious problems, such as the environment pollution, the increasing population, the fatal effects of nuclear weapons, and so on. So some people believe that the Earth is being harmed by human activity. But as far as I am concerned that human activity makes the Earth a better place to live and also makes some negative effects in this process. My arguments for this point are listed as follows.
Even though we face so many crises, no one can deny that Earth is more suitable for human habitation. That is the result of the efforts of generations of people. If without that, we might also live in caves and eat the crude food just like wild animals. If that is true, we must have no time and energy to think over the problems of the Earth because we have to look for food and avoid becoming the food of other animals. At that state, whether the Earth were harmed is not important for human because some certain crisis can annihilate the total population, such as some infectious disease or the a change of climates.
It is inevitable to produce some positive aspect functions when human are struggle to improve the survive abilities and from the experiences of history we also have make great effort to resolve this kinds of problems. For example, most of people hope to limit the scope of nuclear weapons and the protection of environment is accepted by almost every one. Most of problems are controlled by ourselves and some of them have the hope to be resolved in years. We are finding the balance between the development and the protection of our Earth. So it is unnecessary to deny the advancement of human.
For the reasons presented above, we admit that there are some problems in the process of the human development, but those problems are resolving and as a whole we make the Earth a better place to live. Human evolved in the mode of continuing to correct their mistakes and making a better progress.
Essay 226 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
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 cannot 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.
Essay 227 Topic 29 Does human harmed the Earth or make it a better place to live?
Some people believe that the Earth is being harmed by human activity while others feel that human activity makes the Earth a better place to live. In my opinion, Earth is being harmed by human activity such as deforestation; harmful chemicals produced which damage the ozone layer and various types of pollution.
Deforestation is one of the main factors contributing to Earth’s damage. People cut down trees, which results in lack of oxygen. In addition, it destroys the shelters of the animals that live in the trees. I saw a documentary on television once, which talked about how deforestation was destroying the beauty of our Earth and harming the poor animals for whom the trees are home. Deforestation not only reduces our oxygen but it also is the cause of animals becoming extinct.
The ozone layer is a very important part of the Earth because it prevents our Earth from the harmful rays of the sun. Due to the harmful chemicals produced by people, an hole has been found in our ozone layer. Consequently this hole has led to cancer becoming common among people because of the harmful rays. These harmful chemicals referred to as CFCs are causing destruction to our Earth. Air sprays, body sprays, whiteners and many others contain CFCs, which are a big problem for our Earth. If people do not control these harmful chemicals, our Earth will be totally destroyed.
Pollution has always caused damage to our Earth. Air pollution, water pollution and many others have harmed our Earth. The fumes from the transportations fall as acid rain later destroying the beauty of our Earth. The waste thrown in the oceans kills the marine life. Pollution is one of the main factors, which destructs our Earth everyday.
Our Earth is becoming a catastrophe because of the way humans have been treating it. Dangerous chemicals, cutting down trees and pollution is finishing the Earth day by day. If this continues, then there will be no place for any of us to live and enjoy life.

Essay 230 Topic 29 human activity vs. environment
The problem of development versus environment has now been in the limelight. Nowhere is the clash more visible than in China, where the world’s largest population faces pollution, deforestation and acid rain on a large scale. Under this circumstance, some people argue that the earth is being harmed by human activity whereas others still feel that human activity makes it a better place to live, however as far as I am concerned, they are not conflicting issues. How to define human activity? I deem this is the premise of judging the influence it bringing to the earth. Yet, human activity includes diverse aspects, good and bad, non can be negated. As a matter of fact, in order to possess more plow lands as well as more resources such as wood, petroleum, mine and natural gas, there has been a rapid destruction of the tropical rain forests, which are the ecosystems with the highest known species diversity on earth, what is more, as the human population continues to expand, it will negatively affect one after another of earth’s ecosystems, and the result is irreversible. Now humans are beginning to destroy marine ecosystems through other types of activities, involving disposal and run off of poisonous waste. Not to mention the wars that exactly do no good to the earth. Can you imagine what terrifying result will it lead to if continuing such kind of human activities? In contrast, the list of favorable human activities also seems endless. The discovery of electricity is a good case in point. Without electricity we will have nothing to do except for sleeping during the night; without electricity the factory will not be able to produce enough things to satisfy the society; without electricity we even have no chance to take this TOEFL examination! Similarly, the finding of antibiotics did much to our world, as a result, saved many lives of not only human beings but plenty of animals as well. Can you deny these merits that human activities brought to? As I have noted, human activity has both advantages and disadvantages to the earth. It is correlated with what kind of activity it is. Accordingly, we cannot simply figure out human activity do good or harm to the earth
