What is the Future for our World: Would the World Run out of Resources or not?
There are two points of view on this problem – pessimistical and optimistical, and both are right in something. The pessimistical point of view is deduced in that in a very short time the world will run out of resources at last; because people use them so ruthless, blinded with their greed; I am sure that we could use less resources and still live a good life. The great awful crisis is not far away now, and I have no idea of what should we do to avoid it. We’re able just to hold out the time; nowadays many people are trying to inbetter the ecology and save nature… I don’t know if they succeed.
The optimistical point of view is that we will find the way not to destroy our nature so rudely by striving out enormous quantities of different resources – coal, oil, gas; metals, water, wood. And we still have one more chance – “we” means all the population of the world – to invent some new techniques that will use less resources and produce less garbage – not to polute the environment.
There is one more, the third position. It is the position of the indifferent people. They say: “It will be enough for my age, and about other generations I don’t care.” They do not care about the future of their children, and what is more, they’re showing their true face. Such people use the world resources without a doubt. If all of the people were like that, I think the Earth would have already fallen to pieces. As for me, personally I think that we have no other destiny. Little by little the resources will run out, because they are not endless indeed! When must it happen – in twenty years or in two thousand years – and what will happen, I can’t say. The only thing I’m sure of and happy about is that I won’t see it all.
