From a functionalist perspective, how has human behavior and our way of life contributed to environmental problems? So far I have the premise that functionalist examine the entire system itself. Human activities have become a dominant influence on the earth's climate and ecosystems. Our human need for a faster way way of doing everyday things has lead to more non environmentally friendly measures. Please provide website with more information on this question. Thanks.
the premise that functionalist examine -- is there more than one "functionalist" (and what does that even mean?); if there's more than one, then the spelling needs to be the plural spelling: "functionalists"; if it's singular, then make the verb singular, too: "examines"
has lead -- should be "has led" (past tense spelling)
non environmentally friendly -- better would be "environmentally unfriendly"
Be aware that not everyone agrees about all this!!
Also be aware that you seem to be basing your response primarily on how many people live in our country. Are you sure you can apply these same ideas to people all over the world ... or even our country?
