Some people think that human needs for farmland, housing, and industry are more important than saving land for endangered animals. Do you agree or disagree with this point of view? Why or why not?
Animals, plants, and varieties of other species are an important part of our ecosystem. Reckless industrialisation and urbanisation have led to clearing off of large lands of forests. In this essay, I will elucidate why exploiting the environment for human needs can be dangerous in the long run.
In the past century, the miracles of industrialisation have enabled man to produce and build at a large scale. This industrialisation has led to urbanisation, consumerism and rising luxuries. Man today demands luxury items as a means of survival. These demands can be met only if the new factories and services can be established which requires large areas of lands. People believe that unexploited land and resources should be put to use for human benefits otherwise, they’ve no purpose.
Contrary to these arguments, the climate change, natural calamities, and extinction of many species are evidence to the fact that unplanned exploitation of nature can be destructive.
Disturbance in the ecosystem – Each living being is an important part of our ecosystem. If even one of them is removed, it would lead to a serious disturbance. A disturbance at one or the other level indirectly affects human survival too. Cutting down forests, building dams displace many families as well flora and fauna.
Severe exploitation of natural resources – Soil erosion and floods are a consequence of mindless exploitation. Global warming is another consequence of unplanned industrialisation. Also, at the rate with which we are using up the nonrenewable resources, we’ll run out of them in the coming years. Nature has been taken for granted.
Unhealthy lifestyle – A man’s life devoid of nature is an unhealthy life. At a time when technology has overshadowed even human relationships, people are getting more disconnected with a natural lifestyle.
Natural calamities – Nature doesn’t wait for anyone. If we disturb the ecosystem, it will find any way to stabilise itself. Many times this involves severe loss to human lives. The floods in India in 2013 is a prime example of what happens when the ecological balance is disturbed.
In conclusion, industrialisation should be increased at a pace that nature always remains in balance. A man’s needs know no boundaries, he will always remain dissatisfied. To fulfill superficial needs, we cannot abuse the very nature which gives us life. Man is a part of nature, not its master.
