Topic
We live in a world that advances at an increasingly rapid pace. Humankind benefits from advancements in many areas of life. We live comfortably with the natural elements. Our homes are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We no longer fear many deadly diseases. Even some forms of cancer are routinely cured. In some facets of our daily living, however, advancements have their negative side. Global warming is likely a result of human activity caused by burning fossil fuels to heat and cool our homes.

Does every advancement create a challenge? Make a 3-minute speech to share your point of view on this issue.
