This question is ambiguous: maybe “plenty of natural resources” is interpreted as plenty of coal, oil, and timber, or maybe as plenty of solar, wind and other renewable, and “learn how to development them” can mean sustainable development.

(2) Humans have the right to modify the natural environment to suit their needs. (3) Humans are severely abusing the environment. (4) Human ingenuity wil insure that we do NOT make the earth unlivable. (5) When humans interfere with nature it often produces disastrous consequences. (6) The earth has plenty of natural resources if we just learn how to develop them. (7) Plants and animals have as much right as humans to exist. (8) The balance of nature is strong enough to cope with the impacts of modern industrial nations. (9) Despite our special abilities, humans are stil subject to the laws of nature. (10) The so-cal ed “ecological crisis” facing humankind has been greatly exaggerated. (11) The earth is like a spaceship with limited room and resources. (12) Humans were meant to rule over the rest of nature. (13) The balance of nature is very delicate and easily upset. (14) Humans wil eventual y learn enough about how nature works to control it.
