经济发展与环境保护英语作文范文一 Economic Development and Environmental Protection
I am not supportive of the idea that either takes priority. It is necessary and absolutely possible that economic development and environmental protection co-exist, in the sense that both of them are indispensable factors for the prosperity of society.
Economic development is seemingly more important, due to the fact that it creates enormous job opportunities, improves living conditions and increases government revenues. Yet, the above goals can only really be reached on condition that the environment is well protected. And, interesting, it is the economic development per se that provides the money and personnel resources required for the protection of the environment. A well-preserved environment is the groundwork for the economy and in a way promotes economic growth. A fast-development and well-functioning economy calls for a good environment, which offers essential resources, e.g. wood, coal, water, and so on. Once the environment deteriorates, the production process is likely to be disturbed or even halted. What is worse, natural disaster that comes with the worsening environmental conditions might even paralyze the whole economy and pose a severe threat to human life. The pursuit of short-term economic profit is the destruction of our home and that of our posterity.
经济的发展似乎更重要，由于它创造了大量的就业机会，改善了生活条件以及增加了政府收入。然而，如果环境被保护了，以上的目标才算真正达到了，经济发展的 本身提供了钱，这些资源要用于环境保护上。一个被保护得好的环境是经济基础也是提高经济的一种方式。快速发展和运转良好的经济呼吁良好的环境，它能够提供 基本的能源，比如：木材，煤，水，等等。一旦环境恶化，产品进程很可能受到干扰或者甚至中断。更严重的是，自然灾害伴随而来的更为严重的环境问题可能会使 整个经济瘫痪而且对人类生活形成严重的威胁。短期经济利益的追求会使我们的家和权益受到破坏。
So economic development and environmental protection are equally important. In this case, we are actually working on an environment-friendly economy.
经济发展与环境保护英语作文范文二 Economic Development and Environmental Protection
Some people believe that economic development should never be at the cost of the environment. They think the present serious environmental problems are largely caused by rapid?economic development. For example, land resources are shrinking because of the industrial development and the expansion of cities. Deserts are spreading because of over grazing, poor fanning, tree cutting, and strip mining. Our air and water supplies are being polluted by poisonous gassesand waste products. It is important, therefore, that we should take another look at the way in which our industries and cities are developing.
However, other people think it unnecessary to consider environmental problems now and our first priority should always be given to economic development. They believe that environmental problems are inevitable and unavoidable in the process of economic development. They are only the by products of economic development, which can be dealt with later when we have the time and money.
I think the second idea is completelywrong. Our ultimate aim in economic development is to provide a comfortable and happy life for our people. What is the point of economic development if we achieve it at the cost of our environment? There has been much evidence to prove that a balance between the two helps more rapid and continuous development.
