Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Schools should invest more on sports and athletic fields instead of the campus libraries.
the reading and the lecture are both about using Genetic modification to improve trees, however, the author of the reading illustrates the benefits of genetically modified trees, the lecturer disputes the main ideas mentioned in the reading by explaining the disadvantages of this type of trees: first of all, according to the passage, genetically modified trees are more resistant in hard conditions such as damaging of ringspot virus infection which treated the native papaya tree population. on the other hand, the lecturer argues that genetically modified trees are merely resistant to one particular condition, and if something challenging treats them and they can not tolerate it, all of them probably wipe out as a result of uniformly genetic modification. for instance, if some new pest invade them or big climatic changes take place, all of them destroy because of having the same genetic modification. secondly, the author of the reading states that genetically modified trees grow faster and give greater products and yields of food, therefore, they have more benefits but the lecturer believes that they have hidden costs for farmers. the farmers have to more charge the company for seeds and they must pay the company every time collect the food. finally, the author of the reading suggests that the fast growth of genetically modified trees can compensate for the overexploitation of wild trees. indeed, the great demand for firewood and building timber can be satisfied by genetically modified trees, and in this way, we can save the native trees. On the contrary, the professor says that genetically modified trees can invade wild trees and compete with them in the sources because of their fast aggressive growth. in addition, she explains they deplete the sources for their fast growth and treat the native trees.
