Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| The car has become the most popular means of transport in the history of the world. However, some people say that the world would be better off without cars.
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that using cars are harmful, whereas others say that we can not stop using them.
I think that cars have become a part of modern life and we can not get rid of them. First of all, to move by car is faster than by foot. One can do far more things if he or she drives a car. Second, it is more comfortable to travel by car than by other means of transportation. A person has their own space where they can do whatever he or she wants like listen to any music or talk with anybody they want without being disturbed. Also, the car industry gives a lot of employment thus helping the whole country economically.
Some other people say cars pollute the environment badly. In big cities like Beijing people can hardly breath. Using cars make people walk less, which might cause different diseases.
Well, we can not stop industrial progress. What we can do is to make it less harmful. There are cars nowadays that run on electricity or hybrid energy sources. They do not pollute nature a lot. As for the physical inactivity, it can by solved by doing sport exercises.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. It might be true that some people would do better without vehicles, but on the whole, people cannot and should not stop using cars. Thus, I still support the idea that cars make a person's life easier and more comfortable.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight people might be better without vehicles but in actual fact they got used to cars and cannot live without them. Thus, I strongly believe that using cars makes a lot of sense.
