More and more people buy and use their own car.do you think the advantages of this trend for individuals overweigh the disadvantages for environment?
With the development of economy and technology, private cars are affordable to more families. So the debate of the cars contribution to individuals and the disadvantages of cars to environment is also presented.
I believe the benefits the cars brought to us is more than the harm they make to the environment. Although we can’t deny that cars actually indeed made some air pollutions (due to the greenhouse emission) and maybe also some noise pollution. We can’t ignore the value of the cars in our daily life. The reasons are listed below.
First of all, with private cars, people enjoy more flexible going –out schedule, we don’t need to passively rely on the public transportation. For example, we can determine the time to set out to work every morning without concerning the public bus time.
Additionally, cars also bring us more enjoyment and flexibility to our life. We can plan a longer distanced car trip with private cars since many worth visiting places have poor public transportation access.
Last but not least, cars assists us to take more care of our families. When you have children or elderly people, concerning the safety and comfort issue, it is better to drive them by private cars since the public buses are always crowed and chaotic. The further example is when our family members have emergencies to hospital, we don’t need to wait the taxi or the ambulance, and we can drive them to hospital immediately for in time treatment.
All in all, having private cars is very important to individuals in terms of the conveniences, enjoyments and flexibility the cars brought to us. Compare to those benefits, I think the environment issue the cars made can be neglected.
Private car ownership has been becoming increasingly universe in many societies and thus triggered a series of controversies and one of which regards the upsides and downsides for individuals and eco-surroundings respectively.Personally,every coin has two sides，likewise,there are both evidence in its benefits and drawbacks and it is difficult to say which is more obvious.
Commonly,many car owners share the belief that by possessing a transportation tool,they are given more opportunity to travel as they please and as convenient as possible.For example,encountering bad weathers,rather than waiting for public bus or walking a long way to take the underground in the heavy rain,we can drive car instantly we walk out the door.Also,private cars make many leisure activities possible.In some cases,having a mountain climbing,holding a barbecue party or camping in countryside areas on weekend would rely,in great likelihood,on self-driving as public transportation may not be sufficiently provided in those areas.
On the other hand,reaching the conclusion that there are advantages in private car use does not mean that we ignore its disadvantages recklessly.Instead,it should be equivalently pointed out.Global warming and other air problems such as acid rain and haze are probably the main issues to be concerned. Due to car emissions,many big cities are suffering the environment problems mentioned above.
However,instead of letting these problems be and eventually deteriorate,actions must be taken to tackle or at least mitigate the threat to our life.I therefore believe that along with the bright sides of private car use,the dark ones still exist and it is everyone's responsibility to solve it.
Nowadays, the number of people choosing to live by themselves increase rapidly in recent years.
Why is the case? Is the positive or negative development of society?
It is a tendency in modern society that the family size becomes smaller since a growing number of young people prefer to stay apart from their parents and live alone in metropolis.
This trend may involve some factors and the most rooted one can be modern urbanized lifestyle which features high level of mobility and the pursuit of privacy as well as independence. To be specific, thanks to the convenience provided by modern means of transport, the younger generation is more likely to attend university or take a job in a mega city which is far from their hometown, in which case, living with families is an unrealistic choice. In addition, private space is deemed as the necessity for well-educated youngsters who pay more attention to personal development, meditation and respect individual differences as well. It is also understandable that in order to adapt to such a competitive working or living environment, depending on oneself is a must which can be achieved through renting houses, cooking meals, and even paying for the utility bill. What’s more, when facing enormous stress at workplace, people have to focus on their jobs; therefore committing to a serious relationship or even building up a family which needs much dedication and responsibility is not a preferable option.
This change of lifestyle can generate some negative effects on the whole society. Firstly, the family bond may be weakened although they are able to live without worrying about their own lifestyles that may conflict with those of other family members. What’s worse, the elderly tend to feel the sense of isolation due to the lack of the companionship of both their adult children and grandchildren. When it comes to young people, the increasing living cost aggravates their financial burdens in daily life and also most of them postpone their parenthood.
In conclusion, personally, I believe this phenomenon is normal in the wake of social development of one country. And to meet these diverse demands, governments and social communities are expected to explore effective solutions.
In some countries, more people choose to live by themselves in recent years, why is it case? Is it a positive or negative development for society?
In recent years, living alone has become increasingly normal around the world, especially in those major cities. There could be several reasons why this is the case, and I believe that it has both positive and negative effects on our society.
There are various reasons why many people choose to live by themselves. Firstly, because of urbanization and globalization, a growing number of people of working age have to live in cities far away from their hometown, especially those who just graduate from universities. As they d not want t disturb or be disturbed by their parents, they prefer to live by themselves. Besides, the increasing awareness of independence may also have an impact on the choice of how to live. In addition, the convenient transport, such as railway and airplane and technology like mobile phones could meet the demand for contacting with our family members and friends both physically and emotionally, which provides the possibility for us to live on our own.
In my view, the rapid increase in the number of one person households has both beneficial and detrimental effects on our community. From the perspective of economy, the trend of living individually could lead to the increasing demand of housing, which could boost construction industry, real estate, bank and other related industries which provide services and products for homeowners. On the other hand, people living along for a long time might suffer from depression and feel isolated since they lack a sense of community, which is not good for neighborliness.
In conclusion, on the societal level, living by oneself can have both positive and negative influence.
