Some people think that current environmental issues are global problems and should therefore be dealt with by the government while others believe that these problems can only be tackled by individuals. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

The current environmental issues are a
problem
which the entire world is facing simultaneously.
However
, there are sections of society who believe that
this
is more of a government
problem
, whilst others believe that
this
is a
problem
that can only be solved through individual intervention. In
this
essay, we shall look at the two sides to
this
coin.
First
and foremost, the major form of pollution is the burning of fossil fuels in factories and by
vehicles
on the road. Whilst the use of fossil fuels in factories is a bit difficult to get around, the
problem
brought about by
vehicles
on the roads is something which the government can easily focus on. What needs to be done is to strengthen the public transport sectors, impose heavy fines on the number of
vehicles
a family can posse, and
in addition
, they must thrust onto the public fines for using
vehicles
after a certain hour.
Furthermore
, they should encourage local bicycle businesses, by creating more bicycle lanes and parks, which will in turn help to boost their business. Car manufacturers, must look into the possibility of producing greener cars, and slowly phase out the production of petrol and diesel
vehicles
. Once
this
happens, more and more petrol stations will cater to the new requirements by vehicle owners. These are some of the changes that the administration can enforce. They can
also
heavily in renewable sources of energy,
such
as the building of wind turbines, which will help generate more electricity in a cleaner manner. The natives,
on the other hand
, are not able to make changes at
such
a high level,
therefore
they can make small changes at home. They can make a conscious effort to switch to public transport systems. Electric
vehicles
may be a bit costlier than the normal petrol or diesel
vehicles
, but we must try and make the move for the sake of the environment. People must
also
invest in solar panels for their houses so that they can avoid the use of boilers and heaters. In conclusion, I feel that it is detrimental to solve the ever-persisting
problem
of air pollution,
however
, we must remember that for
this
to be nipped in the bud, everyone, the governments, and individuals need to do their part.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
