By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

The main contributor to environmental problem

Some people say that the main environmental problem of our time is the loss of particular species of plants and animals. Others say that there are more important environmental problems.

Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

The following is my essay.

Nowadays, many contributors should be responsibile for our deteriorating environment. It is true that environmental problem caused by the loss of biodiversity should be focused on, I do believe that there are other more significant hassles related to the environment.
It is undeniable that the extinction of some particular herbivore/carnivore and plants is a severe problem related to our environment. The death of these plants as well as animals not only cause damages to our nature but also to we human beings. Take the rain forest for an example, the loss of biodiversity in the rain forest is one of dominant contributors to global warming, moreover, there is a causal relationship between extinction of some plants and some calamities, such as typhoon, flood, and drought.
However, there are more significant environmental troubles necessary to be tackled. To begin with, air pollution plays a pivotal role in damaging residents’ health and acclerating global warming. In addition, smog caused by cars and factories is another environmental issue, adolecents as well as elders have aflicted severely by its adverse advantages. Last but not least, numerous metropolises are entangled by household waste, the waste from families, dumped recklessly by people, is not detrimental to not only the outlook of these cities but also the daily life of some citizens.

In conclusion, although degradation of biodiversity does cause several environmental issues which are urged to be addressed, there are more urgent problems related to the environment necessary to be concentrated on.
