OK. Thanks.

What do you think about the sentence structure ?

As long as we are emitting greenhouse gas into our atmosphere, we will continue to create an environment that will negatively impact the future for most life on earth.

The sentence, as it stands, even though grammatically correct, still hurts my ears.I wish I had more knowledge (critical thinking skills) to explain why.
