Hi everyone, this is my first essay posted here. My goal is to get a 8 in the exam after three weeks.. That is must be very difficult,but I have to work hard on it.
Environmental problems are too big for individual countries and individual persons to address. In other words, we have reached the stage where the only way to protect the environment is at an international level. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
Environmental pollution has been deteriorating at an exponential rate.It is believed that this nagative trend can only be slowed down by interntaional cooperation rather than by countries' individual work. However, I suppose both individual and international efforts are paramount to the conservation of environment.
It is true that many environmental hazards need to be curbed internationlly.For one thing ,given that most enironmental problems are caused by human behaviours gloably,it is less likely for them to be solved by relying on the efforts of few countries. For example, it is mainly the increased greenhouse gas emmisions worldwide that contribute to the global warming.If only few countries reduce their emmisions accompanying by continuous pollution of other countries,this phenomenon will by no means disappear. For another,granted that all countries can make their efforts voluntarily, addressing this problem internationaly can raise more funding and bring together specialists of broader fields without boundar, which makes big environmental concerns to be tackled effectively.
Nevertheless,contributions of individual countries and individual pereson are not futile in this case. Individual's efforts are necessary to improve environment because the world is made up by individual person and the collective efforts of every individual will make a difference. When everyone swifts from using traditional paper to those made of renewable materials, factories will stop cutting tress, reducing deforestation. Meanwhile, governments are able to take many measures to address problems confined to their own countires.For instance, by imposing stiff penalties ,governments can enhance legislation about discharging industrial waste, detering factories from continuing destroy the invironment.
As a conclusion, in order to solve enviromental issues,neither international efforts and individual contributions can be neglected.
Any one can give me some suggestions?
