污染治理-雅思写作同意与否-雅思大作文范文 companies and individuals should pay to clean up the environment
Many people believe that companies and individuals should pay to clean up the environment in proportion to the amount of pollution they have produced. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
It is often argued that people should be charged in accordance with the amount of pollution they produce. While I accept that certain organisations should be penalised for this, I believe that every individual should not be forced to pay a fine.
There are several reasons why giant entrepreneurs should pay for contaminating the land. Being penalised with a specific amount of money, factories will help the government to raise fund which can be used in a variety of long-term and rationalised measures to mitigate the pollution on the earth. This will also deter them from producing more garbage and pollution. Take London as an example, where governments have invested recently a hefty amount of money in public transportation, in particular, local buses which have been designed to be much more efficient than the older ones. So these vehicles discharge fewer combustible pollutants into the air. Also, these self-centered companies sometimes exploit natural resources such as forests, water and agricultural lands, beyond all their limits just to increase the profit. If these companies are not obliged to share the amount of money, which is required to curb pollutions, they will become more short-sighted (or greedy) in terms of making more money without even caring about the impact on climate change and environment.
However, I would argue that every individual should not be liable to pay the recommended fine. It is unrealistic that we can stop people from polluting the universe merely by imposing charges. Because people need electricity to enjoy technologies, farmland to grow crops, accommodation to live, food to eat and a mean of transportation to travel. Furthermore, if people from devastating backgrounds are charged more for the impact they have on climate, it will create an upheaval situation where lower-income groups would not be able to pay even for their daily necessities.
In conclusion, only organisations who are earning millions of pounds by exploiting natural resources rather than all the common citizens should be obliged to share the amount of money in curbing pollution.
