Some People Think that Environmental Problems Are Too Big for Individuals to Solve

Some people think that environmental problems are too big for individuals to solve, while others think that the government cannot solve these environmental problems unless individuals make some action. Discuss both views and give your opinion. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.


In this century, environmental problems are more pronounced than ever. The impact is also starting to manifest in day to day life.

There are different opinions about who should take the lion’s share in fighting against environmental problems. Some argue that the government is the one who comes first; on the other hand, certain groups of the population believe that individuals are responsible for improving the problem.

In my opinion, the main cause of environmental problems is the emission of gasses from big industries. These industries are a source of tremendous amounts of income for countries. The activities of these industries are the backbone of the economy of most developed countries. Owing to such association, it is not easy to drop this sector for the sake of environmental problems. I guess the government needs to see it in very different ways.

For instance, in my country, there is an initiative called green legacy. The purpose of the initiative is to create an environmentally friendly economy. Among the started activities is establishing projects to change sources of energy from fuel to hydrometric power. By doing this, it will be possible to avoid the emission of gasses which can pollute the environment. In order to make decisions like this, it requires the involvement of policymakers and other stakeholders, so it can be done if the government is willing.

Having said that, in order to solidify the government decision, individual involvement and motivation are also necessary.¬†Given the fact that the cause of environmental problems is vast, it is important to put collective effort into tackling the root cause, and however, the government’s role is irreplaceable.
