As a society, we have have been growing at a rapid rate for decades now and with our newest materials, such as cars, homes, and buildings, a lot of pollution is produced from them. We have created alternatives such as electric cars and eco friendly buildings, but the problem still exists. Michelle Radcliff from Home and Garden, talking about the electric car's states, “the recharging times were extremely long and production costs were very high”. As humans, we have a hard time adjusting to change and adapting to our surroundings. We typically tear down whatever was there in our way and build what we want. We take away farmland that produces our food and the trees that give us oxygen. With no trees to take in the bad air, it is left for us to breath. Because changing our living habits is such an inconvenience, most people continue living their life, as if the pollution doesn’t exist. In this example, Robert Gifford, a psychologist's states, “taking a plane is several times less fuel-efficient even than driving, but we often choose to fly to save time”. That is just another way where because we want to save time, we choose the choice that is killing our earth. Now if you have to fly across the world, that is another story. But if you are going state to state, that is a situation where you could drive, yet it would take an extra day or two. Throughout my research, it has appeared to me that convenience is more important to people than stopping the problem of pollution.
