Human activities contributing to natural resources has nearly demolished and abused the
important of natural resources. Air and water are contaminate, climate patterns are changed and
forests are ruined. Due to the fact that people start to use it lavishly since 1945, the year of world
war two. The first nuclear bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. The bomb was known as
” Little Boy”. It was the weapon that human created to destroy ourselves, according to the article
” How to destroy the future ” by Noam Chomsky. From my point of view, I agreed that the rich
countries, for example Brazil and United state of America are racing to destroy the wold and
humankind have developed the capacity to destroy themselves.
Initially, the author said that the wealthy countries for example Brazil and United state of America are racing to destroy the world, In my opinion I agree with his statement. Brazil is in the first ranked place for natural forest loss. One of the biggest environment issue that Brazil is facing is Deforestation. Plant plays an important role in the climate because they absorb carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen back into it. Due to the fact that overpopulation is one of the biggest problems facing in the world today. which mean human need more housing space and farming space. For example, in Amazon rainforest, which is the greatest biodiversity in the world. Deforestation of the Amazon rainforest can be attributed to many different factors for the rainforest is seen as a resource for cattle pasture, valuable hardwoods, housing space, farming space and medicines. The cattle sector in the Brazilian Amazon, the trades of international beef and leather was responsible of about 80% of all deforestation in the region or about 14% of the world’s total annual deforestation, making it the largest single driver of deforestation in the world (Butler,2017). Human also release carbon dioxide when breathe. Therefore, the amounts of millions of people breath have release carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. If human continue deforestation, human breathing that release carbon dioxide will stay at the atmosphere and that effect the global warming. According to the author , tribal societies trying to overcome the environment issues, In my opinion it is only some of them are. However, it is true that Bolivia is trying to find a way to come up with the law of Mother earth (Buxton, 2018). The law would offer nature legal rights, specifically the right to life, regeneration, biodiversity, water, clean air, balance, and restoration, biodiversity, water, clean air, balance, and restoration.
Secondly, I truly agree with author’s statement, human have developed lethal weapons known for its annihilation abilities. However, creators of such weapon are decorated with appraisals. Nuclear weapons was first tested in 1945 and ever since, an estimated 125,000 nuclear bombs has been made. It runs a great risk of damaging Earth, hence making it inhabitable. Furthermore, United States dropped its first atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima he bomb was known as ” Little Boy”.Three days after the United States dropped second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki (Lemay, 2017). Which left lasting radioactivities for decades; the land lost its ability to be fertile with any crops, people in the affected areas sustained radiation poisoning, the 2 cities remained abandoned for a long period of time.
To sum up, in my perspective I think green environment is abused to satisfy human materialistic nature. Many areas in countries with dense and rich forest has been demolished in order to create further pollution. Human’s creation of nuclear weapons also pose a great risk of a nuclear war which can make earth inhabitable. Considering these two factors I think humans are more than capable at destroying our Earth.
