Question and answer
Q: Can countries such as the United States continue to grow and develop without causing environmental damage? How can one balance the demands of economic development with environmental concerns?
A: The USA is no longer the biggest threat to the worlds ecology, because it is no longer the largest industrial nation. It is Asia, and in particular China and India that will have the most environmental impact on our planet in the future. [ In any case, whether the demands of economic development can be balanced with environmental concerns will depend on whether those in power learn to associate
positive economic growth with a healthy environment or whether economic greed will always outweigh ecological concerns. Judging from past human behavior, the future looks grim. There are already 6.7 billion people on the planet. This number will probably double in your lifetime, which will have dire consequences for everyone. ]
