Technical progress is harmful for the environment (Сочинения ЕГЭ английский язык)
The problem of environmental pollution never loses its relevance. There is a statement that «Technical progress is always harmful for the environment». Some people are very concerned about this issue. Every day they try to change the situation and other people’s attitude. In my essay I would like to analyze this debatable topic and express my own opinion.
I fully agree with the idea mentioned above because of several reasons. First of all, there is dangerous phenomena that can radically change the appearance of the planet. It threatens the existence of many plants and animal species and pose a danger to the human race. Secondly, more than 11 million hectares of forest are annually destroyed for the new buildings. It decreases the amount of oxygen in the air and reduces the habitat of some animals, which may cause their extinction.
Thirdly, the majority of gases of industrial origin damage the protective ozone layer of the planet.
However, some people have the opposite opinion. For instance, they believe that any harm done to nature is covered by the number of amenities that advanced technologies bring. Moreover, today there are invented technics that can clean the environment, reduce the harm and preserve useful resources of the planet. Using this type of production, people can avoid environmental pollution and continue to use high-tech devices that greatly facilitate the process of creating different conveniences.
Nevertheless, I do not agree with this point of view. Industrialization poisons the atmosphere, rivers, lakes, seas. This causes fish infection, eating which can lead to various dangerous diseases. Extraction of minerals destroys the cover of the Earth. Hydroelectric power plants change the geography of entire regions.
In conclusion, I would like to point out that there is no doubt that technical progress makes people’s lives easier, but most inventions are not safe for the nature, and people make it worse, treating nature irresponsibly and considering technical evolution the main task of mankind.
