The best way to solve the world’s environmental problem is to increase the price of fuel. Do you agree or disagree?
Today, environmental issues are increasingly being considered. Some people claim that raising the cost of fuel is the best way to solve the world’s environmental problem. Personally, I totally disagree with this idea.
On the one hand, there are several drawbacks of raising fuel prices. Firstly, adversely affecting on the economy is the most considerable consequence that we have to suffer. The high fuel price is associated with reducing consumption. It may leads to a reduction in the income of the mining industry. As a result, the government will be decrease budget investing in other field. Secondly, this solution may increase economic burden. The poor may do not affordable. Take my father as an example. He told me that he can’t use his motorbike if the cost of fuel is more expensive. After a long time, it may grow the gap between the rich and the poor.
On the other hand, I believe that there are more effective solutions to solve this issue. The first one I have to mention is raising awareness of citizen. It is can’t deniable that environmental problem is not only cause by the use of fuel. We can make a better environment by many ways such as using recyclable and not littering. Additional, public transport may consider as a solution to solve environmental problem. Compared with private vehicles, it is more economical. Nowadays, more students use public transport simple because it is cheap as well as environmentally friendly.
In conclusion, it seems to me that raising fuel price have several drawbacks and it is not the best way to solve environmental problem.
