sample essay 2

Some people say that the main environmental problem of our time is the loss of particular species of plants and animals. Others say that there are more important environmental problems. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Attempt 1: Ecosystem is balanced based on the interdependency of all the living organisms on the earth. In early man time period, humans were not at the top of the food chain and that is when there used to be a balance in the ecosystem. But from the time when humans invented new ways or tools for their survival that is when the human started hunting enormously disturbing the ecosystem. This lead to extinction of few species of both plants and animals rapidly. Extinction of such species is definitely a bane.

There are certain other important environmental issues like air pollution, plastic disposals, water pollution as well which should be considered and taken care too. But one should realize that controlling pollution will have a positive impact on minimizing the loss of particular species as well. for example if we prevent the water pollution, there will be no marine animals that are effected due to waste that we dispose into water.

Greediness of humans is the root cause for all of these problems and the human activities are inter linked with both pollution and extinction of species. for example, Birds helps farmers by eating the insects that destroy the farm and increased internet signals bandwidth is effecting the life span of birds. Due to this there is an increase in the usage of pesticides there by degrading the soil fertility. this example clearly states the cause for extinction of bird species and also the indirect cause of soil pollution.

Not only designing but also implementing certain rules or restrictions around each and every human activity should help in minimizing this kind of impact on the environmental issues.

Attempt 2: The Mother Nature has been facing numerous issues as result of advancement of technology since, human’s adversely affecting nature for the sake of their comfort. Therefore, some masses are believe that, extinction of some animal and tree species is major problem while other argue that, instead of, there are some other environmental issues are there too, which required more attention. In this essay I will discuss both the side and based on that O will derive a conclusion.

First of all, due to deforestation some breed of animal and plant breed had vanished therefore, it negatively impacted on entire ecological chain because, every sorts of animal and plant are essential part of ecological chain. Consequently, we have been facing some issue in our routine life. For example, due to less amount forest, supply of raw medical in Ayurveda is mitigated in some part of India. Secondly, Some animal lovers and ecologist emphasize on flora and fauna as they are the backbone of our environment. Hence, they create direct or indirect pressure on the government to tackle such issue on priority basis.

However, some schools of thought put stress on other environmental complications such as depletion of ground water is one among them as it session by session it will decline in majority part of place on the earth, especially places which affected by drought. Tamil Nadu is the prefect example for this scenario. Moreover, pollution is pain in neck for the governments as it creates various health related problems such as high index of air quality increase the patients in metro cities. In addition, overall life of people is decline which is result of polluted water and air taken by humans.

In my outlook, pollution and underground water issue need to take care at first level since, it will demand prolong time to solve from the root. In conclusion, both the problems play significant role in our life but pollution need to taken into account first as it harming nature very badly.

Attempt 3: It is an inevitable fact that environmental issues are proliferating at an alarming rate. Individuals opine that one of the greatest problem which we are facing is the disruption of endangered species; however, others consider apart from it; there are several environmental losses that we are facing. I partially agree with the above assertion. Both perceptions would be examined thoroughly in the upcoming paragraphs.

Initiating with the former view, undoubtedly, flora and fauna are getting disappeared throughout the Earth . First and foremost reason behind of this occurrence is, deforestation in large scale. To put it more simple, clearance of forest land has directly deleterious impact on wildlife. To cite an example, an article published in -‘The Times’- stated that thousands of trees are cutting down every year in order to fulfilling the daily needs of ordinary people by ignoring the catastrophic repercussions on forest’s life. Therefore, deforestation could be considered harmful practice for the wildlife.

However, despite of it , there are several other problems are accelerating drastically. Firstly, global warming cannot be overlooked as population is raising unlimitedly just as usages of transportation has also been arising. As a result, toxin gases generating from the combustions of motor vehicles has directly affected healthy life. for instance, it is generally seen that in metropolitan cities, the life expectancy of average citizen is below 60 years because harmful gasses does not allow them to be live longer, due to physical disorders, such as heart diseases , lung cancers. Besides this, changing in climate is also has become biggest challenge especially for the farming sector because due to it, winters are getting more warmer and summers are becoming more hotter, and raining is very rarely seen. So, Agriculture production has been collapsed and a situation is not far away , when people face shortage of food .

In conclusion, although, wildlife is becoming worse day by day due to human’s practice yet, despite having this particular environmental problem , we have also covered with severe issues such as – global warming and climate changing , that cannot be neglected in any case.
