Comment on the following statement:
|The growth of cities is harmful for the environment.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that the growths of cities is always harmful for the environment whereas others say that there are new ecological projects for cities that are not harmful at all.
I think growth of cities is not always harmful. First the newest technologies allow people to build cities without polluting the environment. Second nowadays cars have become much less polluting. We can see a lot of hybrids – cars that work partly on solar energy or electricity. Eco-friendly settlements are being spread more and more. People have also begun to care about nature.
At the same time there are people who think that cities are harmful. They see that the water is polluted. Cities produce a lot of waste products. In some countries people can’t drink tap water anymore. The air in big cities is very polluted as well. A lot of forests are being cut to let big cities grow.
In my opinion all these arguments have their point but as I said before, growth of cities isn’t always harmful now. People realized its harmfulness a long time ago and have been working hard to make our existence as harmless as it possible.
In conclusion, I’d like to say that the ecological planning of cities has gone a long way. It started moving in a different direction, namely it has become more eco-friendly. I believe that eventually we will learn to build big cities that are completely harmless to the environment.
