Q: ** On the notions of a reading and that of a lecturer about hydraulic fracking **
There are two opposite views regarding hydraulic fracking. Generally, lecturer opposes the fracking idea whereas the reading defends this.
Reading states that the more the production the less the energy price. More over,it believes that fracking increases job opportunities which leads to the more prosperity. On the other hand, Lecturer notes that this technology is not accepted economically. She argues that while it increases the amount of gas production, it also increases home price, because a lot of workers with their family will migrate to around the operation zone. Because of increasing population, Related states would then have to spend more for police and schools.
Regarding with safety issues, reading believes that additives which are used in hydraulic fracking are environmentally friendly. These additives neither cause water contamination nor radioactive pollution. On the other hand, lecturer believes that these materials do cause ground water pollution, because they contain cancer causing elements like methane and radium. Lecturer adds that water evaporation also causes air contamination which leads to respiratory illness.
Finally, reading mentions that hydraulic fracking is the future of energy industry. But the lecturer says that the amount of gas reservoirs in United States are over-estimated. They are the first energy resource because the government gives them the most attention. If it invests in gas resources and renewable resources equally, then solar and wind energy would compete with the former of the two. この表現は自然ですか?
A: I am so sorry for the late answer! I'll try to get back to you more quickly next time.

There are two main contrasting views regarding hydraulic fracking. Generally, those lecturing the subject oppose it, whereas reading tends to defend it.
Most sources claim that the method is beneficial, since more oil means a lower price. Furthermore, it states that fracking increases job opportunities. On the other hand, speakers note that this technology is not accepted economically. They argue that, while it increases the amount of gas production, it also requires more money to be paid in order to develop the area. Workers will migrate with their family to the operation zone, which would lead to more police and school costs.
Regarding safety issues, studies believe that chemicals used in hydraulic fracking are environmentally friendly. They cause neither water contamination nor radioactive pollution. This is contrary to the lecturers’ opinion, as they believe groundwater pollution does occur, since the process involves cancer-causing elements such as methane and radium. These polluted waters evaporate, leading to respiratory illnesses through air contamination.
Finally, written accounts indicate that hydraulic fracking the the future of the energy industry. However, professors say that the amount in gas reservoirs is overestimated. They are the first energy resource because the government gives it the most attention. If they invested in gas and renewable sources equally, then it is possible solar and wind energy could compete with former.

This is a very difficult topic, and one I don't know much about. But you sounded very educated when I read through it.
Reading and lecturer are strange choices to use when talking about the sides. I used several different words throughout the edit I did above. Lecturer isn't super common, and occasionally reading sounds strange in the sentence.
Additives is a good word, but it is used when describing ingredients in food. In this context, I believe a different word would be more appropriate. Other than that, excellent as always!
I never really specified this is the past, but when I change something you wrote, it doesn't always mean you're wrong. Sometimes, it's just an alternative option that might sound nicer or explain the meaning better. You usually aren't doing much incorrect; your writing is very good.

If you don't mind me asking, what are all these essays for? Are you taking a class?

a)descended/has grown
b)have descended/grew
c)had descended/had grown
d)descended/is grown
e)are descending/was growing
which one or ones are correct and why others not?
A: A) add ‘are’- “are descended”,
B) grew isn’t the correct wording here,
C) not ‘had descended’- use have/are, not ‘had grown’- use has,
D) not ‘is grown’, instead “has grown”,
E) this doesn’t work at all, ‘are descending’ speaks in the present tense about a past event, and ‘was growing’ doesn’t fit into the context of the sentence it’s in.

Best option: “are/have descended” and “has grown”
