Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Human activity is making the earth a worse place to live. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Earth is a beautiful creation of God and is full of abundant natural resources. Human beings and the earth are in a symbolic relationship with each other. I agree with the statement that human beings are treating the earth so badly and making it the worst place for survival. In the subsequent essay, I am going to give my two reasons for the same. First of all, human activities led to increasing in a lot of pollution. Excess use of petroleum-based vehicles, burning of fossils in factories and use of CFCs products are some of the basic reasons for the pollution. Pollution made this mesmerizing habitat, a bad location to breathe. Due to pollution, we don’t get fresh air to breathe,and this impact the health of an individual. It causes respiratory diseases like asthma and can also lead to the death of a person. My personal experience is a great example of this. Last year, I was doing my coaching in Delhi. As we all know that Delhi is top in the world’s most polluted cities. I was there at the time of Diwali, there was a huge amount of crackers burning that night. The next morning, when I was going to my coaching center, there was so much smog everywhere due to pollution. Due to long-term exposure to that environment, I was feeling difficulty breathing for a long time. When I consulted a doctor then they told me that I got a problem with asthma. For this reason, I believe that human actions took the earth towards its destruction. Secondly, activities like deforestation, overgrazing, and excess irrigation are causing impact on the fertility of soil. Growing vegetation depends upon fertility of soil. These actions like deforestation, excess cattle grazing, and excess irrigation decrease the fertility of soil, pH, and humus content. For Example, research on factors like potency of land, pH, and humus content was done in a part of India and it showed that these factors are depleting very badly and impacting the growth of vegetation. It is certainly clear that productivity of land is a non-renewable resource and one day it will lead to a major food crisis on the surface. In conclusion, I believe that human beings have taken the Earth a very granted way and caused pollution and infertility of soil due to their actions. Human activities are taking all of us towards the destruction of our own beautiful world.
