胡琰：oil and gas
With the increasing demand for energy sources of oil and gas, people should look for sources of oil and gas in remote and untouched places.
Do the advantages outweigh disadvantages of damaging such areas?
Nowadays, with the progress of the society and the growth of population, the resources are consumed continuously. Non-renewable energy such as oil and gas in the whole consumption accounted for a large proportion. Therefore, people begin to explore more sources in remote and untouched places. But to a certain extent, this type of practice is more harm than good.
[或]The oil and gas are significant resources directly related/ concerned the energy security of any nation, therefore it is important to ensure their continuous supply. To address the energy crisis, more and more people suggest that it is necessary to seek oil and gas in remote and untouched areas. However whether such practice is justified has been a debatable topic. In my opinion, the economic benefits brought by oil and gas should not be at the expense/cost of environmental damage.
the discovery and use of oil and gas bring a great number of benefits to human beings, in terms of social development and economic prosperity. As vital energy resources and chemical raw materials , oil and gas are widely used in industry, agriculture, military, and every aspect of daily life. Before the alternative energy sources are commonly used, oil and gas are still one of the important strategic resources, which impact the national economy. (Still play an indispensable and irreplaceable role in the national economy.)
However, different from renewable energy sources such as wind energy, hydro-electric energy and solar power, the reserve of oil and gas is limited, and their formation cycle is quite long. If now we consume them excessively , probably this kind of resources will be depleted, our posterity might no longer enjoy the gift of nature. In addition, the inappropriate exploration of oil and gas in remote areas will cause irreversible and serious damages to ecosystem undoubtedly. And at the same time, industrialization leads to the environmental degradation and all these negative effects should be taken into consideration when governments initiate eco-friendly policies.
To sum up, the best solution is to encourage the reasonable and effective use of non-renewable energy , and try our best to promote the use of renewable energy so that not only can the ecological balance be protected, but also bring benefits to our offspring.
