21.If you love nature and the wilderness, you may have a hard time seeing organic farms and solar energy as
environmental dangers. But that is the position of some hard greens. Hard greens argue that mainstream
environmentalists often promote policies that hurt the planet.
Hard greens say that if you want to save the wilderness and protect endangered species, you have to move
people off the land and concentrate them in cities. They argue that the pollution produced by large cities and their
close suburbs does less danger to the planet and its wild life than the forests that are cut down for farmland,
country homes and suburban development. When an organic farmer clears land of trees and bushes to plant fields
of organic vegetables, the natural habitat of wild vegetation and animals is destroyed-even if the farmer isn’t
using pesticides. Put another way, hard greens would say that you have to reduce man’s footprint on the earth.
Here are some positions of “hard greens:”
Except in unforested areas that receive a great deal of sun, widespread use of solar energy will seriously damage
the environment. In order to produce enough solar energy to provide power to New York City, for example, almost all
the forests in the state of New York would have to be cut down to make room for solar cells.
Food should be produced by large agribusiness corporations rather than small family farmers. Large
corporate farms are more efficient than small farms and produce more food on less land.
Organic farming and pesticide-free farm products should be discouraged because they are inefficient. When
pesticides are not used, more land must be cleared to produce the same amount of food. 【題組】
