do you agree or disagree with the following statements. It is better to use printed material such as books and articles to do research than it is to use the internet

The use of the internet has become one of the most important and indelible part of people's lives, especially for students. Every day students have to do research about scientific topics. It is my firm belief that it is better to gather information from the internet for a number of reasons, and I will develop these ideas in the subsequent paragraphs. It may be useful first to consider that the internet saves money and time to look for information. With the development of the net, it is much easier to find information through it, because all books and journals now are available online. In order to commute to the libraries, you can find everything with one click at any time and from everywhere. To cite an example, last year I have been given to write an essay about dinosaur’s egg, so at first, I went to the school’s library, but I could not find any book about it because there were few of them and all had been taken out of the library. I started to do panic because I did not have more time to wait. Thus, I started to look for the information on the internet and I found a lot of scientific articles about it. For this reason, I can say that the internet makes my life easier. The next point to be made is that the use of the paper is against to the environment. We all clearly know that paper is made of trees, and every day trees are being cut because of it. So, it means that we are losing the source of human’s oxygen. Overall, the lack of oxygen always has a bad impact on the earth. Moreover, nowadays there are a lot of people who have asthma or problem with breathing. For this reason, I strongly disagree with using paper and ink because everyday people are dying from problems of breathing. Thus, after discussing some of the reasons why the internet is better for doing research, it becomes possible to arrive at the following conclusion that, the using of the net is easier and cheaper to collect information and finally there are much more sources available online than in any library in the world.
