Juan Torres November 3, 2009 Richard Cory The consumer society has destroyed the environment, exterminated millions of species of plants and animals, poisoned the seas, the rivers and the lakes. This modern society has polluted the air, filled the atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other harmful gases. People are destroying the ozone layer, exhausting the oil, coat and gas reserves. This society has created underdevelopment, misery, dependence, debt and uncertainty. In this present world, the problem is not growth, but distribution. Today’s life meaning is simply possessing material things; having a luxury car, an enormous house, and an endless bank account. If society continues as it is, young people won’t have any future. This society is deceiving the young people by presenting a good future that is not true.
