范文: One Major Problem in the Process of Urbanization
From the ancient time until now, economy has always been regarded as the foundation of all other matters. Nowadays, it is easier for one to sense the urgency of economic development. As a result, existing cities are growing bigger and bigger and new cities are appearing. Obviously, developing economy brings people a big profit. However, some problems emerge. In my opinion, pollution is a major problem.
Everyday people go through cars, buses, trucks and other vehicles which give out a lot of poisonous gas. In the office building, people are nearly closed in a tin. Day and night, people are surrounded by central air-conditioners. Fresh air is not allowed in. What's more, there appear a lot of factories with large chimneys. Some chemical gases come out into the air constantly. The waste gas further worsens the air quality.
In the past, bird chipping, bee humming and other pleasant sound could be heard. Now trees are cut down, fields are covered and animals have no home land. On the contrary, machines howl, vehicles horn and people quarrel. One hears nothing but noise. The noise bothers people's mind and interrupt the harmonious living space.
With the development of economy, people's life tempo is growing faster and faster in accordance with the rapid going of machine. People have no more time to think of others, and they only care about themselves. They can discard rubbish anywhere. They turn the radio up enough to be unbearable to others. They can fight against others violently in order to relax their busy nerves.
To sum up, the urbanization has a lot of negative effects. Here only pollution in air, noise and mind are listed. Besides economic profit, other elements such as living environment should be taken into consideration based on a long-time development.
