    こんにちは!
    更新が随分と遅くなってしまい、申し訳ありません(>_<)
    先日、アメリカ旅行から帰ってきました。
    実に3年ぶりの英語圏への旅行、とても刺激になりました!
    写真はフロリダのマイアミビーチです。
    現地のツアーに参加すると、聞き取れない事もしばしば…
    やはり日頃の積み重ねを怠ってはダメだなぁと身にしみました。
    余談が長くなりましたが、本日もessayを紹介させていただきます!



    The earth is doomed. Do you agree?
    Yes, I suppose that the earth is heading towards doom, or more accurately, this process of approaching doom has been happening since human beings appeared on the planet. Human beings are different type of creature compared to others. This is because our existence will cause the end of earth.
    The difference with human beings is that they are irregular. That means they exist beyond the rules of nature. The population of a species is normally controlled by these rules. For example, if the population of a species of animal increases so as to endanger its food supply, the number of animals naturally decreases because of food shortages. However, human beings can produce food by farming. Also, they had got the ability of producing energy and new materials by using natural resources. Then they reached the top of the animal hierarchy.
    That has resulted in miserable conditions on earth. As the world population grows, the amount of resources used is larger than the amount created by nature. Some new materials are removed from the cycle of the earth's ecosystem and wastefully accumulate on the ground. Is there any way to describe this state of existence other than as one in which we are approaching doom?
    Though human beings are an evil for the earth, we are the only animal that are able to change the earth to be better. If we make correct choices for the future, we could avoid dooming the earth and make a splendid world.

    Great writing, a really nice look at how we as a species have decided our own destiny (or at least created the potential for such a destiny) using both formed structure and excellent analytical tones and very successfully commanding vocabulary to clearly communicate your views and arguments!
