Have the development of urban areas hurt the environment?

    Yes, constructing urban areas take a lot of resources. It may even obliterate a whole habitat for certain animals. Furthermore, constructing urban areas equate to more pollution and wastes being produced.

    Yes — urban areas require an enormous amount of infrastructure to be built. This includes road, sewers, buildings, and sidewalks among many others. Urban areas are usually more populated too — this means that they produce a lot more waste than say a small town/rural area.  It is definitely possible for urban areas to be green, but the current urban centers of today unfortunately are not.

    Urban areas have also encroached on the habitat of many species of animal; we need to build “up” — not “out”.
