Sustainable Development for the Benefit of Human Welfare

In recent years, with the development of society and economy, some of the non-renewable resources, such as coal, oil, natural gas, gradually consumed by human beings. Nearly since 1980s, people have realized the severity of the problem and the discussions about sustainable development have become the hit topic among public, and up till now, it is also a controversial problem.

According to the view of environmental and economic experts who do researches about sustainable development in recent years, people introduce an ethical issue to the topic of sustainable development, that is whether sustainable development or not is closely related to the next generation. Such an ethical question leads people to deeply thinking.

In my point of view, sustainable development is the right choice in the development of human history. According to the natural rules of "law of the jungle, the survival of the fittest", human being hoping to survive generation after generation must insist on sustainable development.

Sometimes sustainable development means that, for a time, there will be a part of the economic interests of some people may suffer from it. For example, to support the sustainable development, it requires us to reduce the exploitation t and utilization of natural resources, resulting in a reduction of production, thus lowering their interests.

However, from a long-term point of view, the current sustainable development will lay the foundation and save economic energy for the future development. We human beings should not be in pursuit of the short interest, but hold a worldwide horizon to look around the world and the future and leave development opportunities and material reserves with the next generation.

In a word, sustainable development is the pace of the era of progress. It is for the benefit of and capable for the welfare of human being.
