Pollution and other environmental problems are resulting from the way that many countries are developing and becoming rich. Some think that this cannot be avoided. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Why ?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
The modern era is advancing in a faster pace than ever before and this occurs at the cost of environmental damage and pollution. In my perspective, this issue cannot be eradicated, but can be mitigated.
The global population swells, increasing the human needs exponentially and the pressure mounts on the respective governments for a swifter developmental process. The result is pollution and other environmental issues, which is mild to extreme in nature. The issue of recycling non-biodegradable products and decreasing air quality in cities which suffocates a multitude of people are pertinent examples for this.
The cardinal reason why I think this issue cannot be arrested is that even the most modern technology is left with no effective answer regarding the question of how development is possible without altering the essence of the eco-system. Provided that the development is carried out in the most eco-friendly way, the whole process of the development would decelerate. For example, the use of energy sources such as solar energy and geothermal energy is limited to a smaller section of the global population. Others however are left with no option, but to use the conventional energy sources such as fossil fuels.
Nevertheless, the idea of so called ‘sustainable development’ is often suggested and practised by some countries effectively. Still it is to be understood that some sorts of damage is inevitable to the nature. The idea of ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ also can be seen as a positive suggestion to address the issue.
To conclude, though it is not possible to either slow down the developmental process or to solve its environmental effects fully, using renewable energy and eco friendly resources can sort the problem to some extent.
