the Earth is being harmed (damaged) by human activity. review please #1 (permalink) Tue May 03, 2011 9:47 am   the Earth is being harmed (damaged) by human activity. review please
 

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.

Millions years ago earth was evolved and slowly evolution of human begins. Human being the wisest animal of the planet interfered with the nature and with some amazing discovery and inventions made the planet a best place to survive and stay. Our ancestors had never thought about the life style that is possible now, which can be better in the future. However, this aspect features benefits of human and there is need to discuss the other side that is from the Earth perspective. Self-centred wants of humans have viciously affected the nature and have harmed the planet to such an extent that even the existence of the planet is in danger.

Deforestation is the first issue that should be considered. From industrial development to facilitate place for housing human activities of deforestation resulted in devastating effects on the climate. It's widely known, how important plants are, from their role in controlling carbon di-oxide to help in rains, from prevention of fertile land conversion in dessert to provide a habitant for the animals. Moreover, global warming, a ringing alarm and concern for the entire world are the result of deforestation. Destruction of plants will not only result in catastrophic results for human as well as animals but also for the planet. Although, realizing our own existence in danger, we are planting trees and making people aware but these efforts are negligible.

Industrial development at which we human proud, is the most prominent factor in endangering the existence of the only known planet suitable for life. Need of better life style, availability of all the possible conveniences have made us so self centred that the harmful effect of these advancement is now threatening the existence of the planet. Pollutions of air, soil, water and excess excavations of minerals from interior of the Earth are reason behind the possible catastrophic effect. Even the research contends that Tsunami and the various earthquakes are the results of the human adverse effect on the environment of the planet.

Inventions and discoveries, which are required for advancement and so called development, are not behind in endangering the planet existence. Humans, after extreme exploitation of resources on the Earth, have stated their invasion on the other planet of the universe which in turn is promoting a potential danger to the Earth. Not to talk about the nuclear plants development where a mishandling can eradicate entire life within fraction of seconds and make the Earth a place not suitable for life.

Uncountable numbers of deeds either in the acknowledgement of human or in sub-consciousness have affected the environment, which in turn endangering the planet. No doubt, Earth is a better place to live than few years ago but uncontrolled exploitation has resulted in repulsive effects. That is why it is said 'Excess is never good'.

Millions years ago earth was evolved and slowly evolution of human begUN. Human being the wisest animal of the planet interfered with the nature and with some amazing discoverIES and inventions made the planet a best place to survive and stay. Our ancestors had never thought about the life style that is possible now, which can be better in the future. However, this aspect features benefits of human and there is need to discuss the other side that is from the Earth perspective. Self-centred wants of humans have viciously affected the nature and have harmed the planet to such an extent that even the existence of the planet is in danger.

Deforestation is the first issue that should be considered. From industrial development to facilitate place for housing human activities of deforestation HAVE resulted in devastating effects on the climate. It's widely known, how important plants are, from their role in controlling carbon di-oxide to help in rains, from prevention of fertile land conversion in dessert to provide a habitant for the animals. Moreover, global warming, a ringing alarm and concern for the entire world are the result of deforestation.

Uncountable numbers of deeds either in the acknowledgement of human or in sub-consciousness have affected the environment, which in turn IS endangering the planet. No doubt, Earth is a better place to live than few years ago but uncontrolled exploitation has resulted in repulsive effects. That is why it is said 'Excess is never good'.

Very good timing. Nice essay. Please see my suggestions and let me know your thoughts

=============================================

Millions years ago earth was evolved and slowly evolution of humanS begUN {Few million years ago earth was evolved, followed by the evolution of humans}. Human being the wisest animal of the planet interfered with the nature and with some amazing discoverIES and inventions made the planet a best place to survive and stay { It is good if you can make this sentence into two. I feel two different ideas are unnecessarily joined by 'and'. Being the wisest of all the animals, mankind's tryst with nature is instrumental in their development. New discoveries and inventions made this earth a better place for us to live} Our ancestors had never thought about the life style that is possible now, which can be better in the future. However, this aspect features benefits of human and there is need to discuss the other side that is from the Earth perspective. { This statement is somewhat awkward. Please paraphrase it. With our greed for better living standards, we often forget the other side of the problem} Self-centred wants { needs} of humans have viciously affected the nature and have harmed the planet to such an extent that even the existence of the planet is in danger.

Deforestation is the first issue that should be considered. From industrial development to facilitate place for housing, human activities of deforestation HAVE resulted in devastating effects on the climate. It's widely known, how important plants are, from their role in controlling carbon di-oxide to help in rains, from prevention of fertile land conversion in dessert to provide a habitant for the animals { Plants play a critical role in controling carbon di-oxide, in increasing rain fall, in preventing desertification of fertile land and in providing habitat for many birds}. Moreover, global warming, a ringing alarm and concern for the entire world are {is} the result of deforestation. Destruction of plants will not only result in catastrophic results for humans as well as animals but also for the planet. Although, Realizing that our own existence is in danger, we are planting trees and making people aware { increasing awareness in people }but these efforts are negligible. { I would say 'not sufficient' rather than ' negligible'}

Industrial development at of which we humans are proud of, is the most prominent factor in endangering the existence of the only known planet suitable for life. Need of better life style, and availability of all the possible conveniences have made us so self centred that the harmful effect of these advancements is now threatening the existence of the planet. Pollutions ( Pollution) of air, soil and water, and excess excavations of minerals from interior of the Earth are reasons behind the possible catastrophic effect. Even the research contends that Tsunami and the various earthquakes are the results of the humans' adverse effect { activities} on the environment of the planet.

Inventions and discoveries, which are required for advancement and so called development, are not behind in endangering the planet's existence. Humans, after extreme exploitation of resources on the Earth, have started their invasion on the other planet of the universe which in turn is promoting a potential danger to the Earth. Not to talk about the nuclear plants development where a mishandling can eradicate entire life within fraction of seconds and make the Earth a place not suitable for life.

Uncountable numbers of deeds either in the acknowledgement of human or in sub-consciousness { I would say : Many of our deeds, done either knowingly or unknowingly, have affected....}have affected the environment, which in turn endangering the planet. No doubt, Earth is a better place to live now than a few years ago but uncontrolled exploitation has resulted in repulsive effects. That is why it is said 'Excess is never good'
