Explain in some ways people pollute the environment? What can governments do? What can people do?

How many words? How long?

One Possible Solution: (Nothing is perfect! Please take this as an example only!)

This resource hasn't been reviewed. Therefore, it might need lots of improvements. The reason this happened is we are implementing more features for this website. Therefore, you need to use it with caution.

Over the past few decades, there has been a growing deterioration into the environment around the globe. Though, the main accused in the destruction of the environment is individuals, on account of the fact humans have always been thinking about their interest and goals versus their responsibilities for the environment, and this essay sets out to elaborate some ways in which the environment has deteriorated by individuals, measures that government can do as well as ways people can aid.

The ambience has been destroyed in some segments dramatically in recent years by individuals. These destructions are attributed to the selfishness of human’s being, in view of the fact individuals have been reckoning to abuse of the ambience. Environmental contaminations set the prime instance for this as individuals have not been paying attention to polluting oceans, seas, and lacks. In other words, oceans and seas have been polluted by oil wastes. In addition, the growth of suburbs has eaten up huge amounts of farmland that can contribute the lack of natural resources like different species of trees to purify the air. As a result, the rate of air pollution has increased drastically.

There is no room for doubt that government must play an important role in protecting the untouched virgin. As a matter of fact, some tough legislation should be set to keep the protected areas, in view of the fact environmental resources are a part of nonrenewable resources. It is obvious that imposing high rate penalties on some people who commit a crime is necessary, on account of the fact that sometime penalties can be the deterrent of leverage.

On the other hand, individuals must be committed to the human’s nature to keep the environment, because they are responsible for new generation. Also, employing divergent parts of the environment is reasonable for people’s lives, however, must be mindful of the sheer fact that if they continue to use the environment indiscriminately, and the high rate of unrecyclable items which contribute to pollute the ambience, new generation will face the shortage of them. Besides, children should be taught how respect the ambience, because if children learn how to be responsible for them, they can train new generation.

All in all, although there are different ways to pollute the environment, significant roles of government and individuals should not be neglected.

This is how your essay is graded

There are 4 components: Task Response, Coherence and Cohesion, Lexical Resource, Grammatical Range and Accuracy.

Task Response means to what extend your essay covers the topic. For example, if the topic is "The advantages and disadvantages of globalization", you would have to write about both aspects not just only advantages or just only disadvantages.

Coherence and Cohesion means how well your paragraphs and sentences are connected. If your first paragraph is about advantages of globalisation, you should start your second paragraph with phrases such as "Despite the advantages, there are many disadvantages we should be aware of". Otherwise, your essay is just a list of items which are not related to each other.

Lexical Resource means vocabulary and different types of sentences, simple and complex. You should be able to demonstrate your capability in using English.

Grammatical Range and Accuracy means spelling and grammar of sentences. You should be able to spell the words correctly, do not forget articles “a” and “the”, punctuations is also important.

One more important thing to know: the four criteria are equally weighted. It means that if you forgot about “Coherence and Cohesion” in your essay, you will loose 1/4 of your essay points.
