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 yet. 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. You have your own space where you can do whatever you want like listen to any music or talk with anybody you 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, these things are true but 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 don not pollute nature a lot. As for the physical inactivity, it can by solved by doing exercise.
In conclusion, I would like to say that we can not stop using cars but we can make them better. The advantages of using cars are greater than its disadvantages. So, I think we just have to adjust our life to the new conditions where cars are used everywhere.
