Increasing the price of petrol is the only way to solve environmental problems. Do you agree or disagree?
We have several problems in our lives and in the world, but the major and common problem is to protect the environment. Some people think that raising the rates of petrol is the only way to fix the environmental issue. In this essay, I have described why I am not agreed with this statement.
It is a fact there are many natures related problems which can be solved by using less petrol. However, increasing the rate of petrol does not decrease the use of petrol. People will use petrol whatever the rate will be. If the government raises the rate of petrol, it will cause inflation in the country. But it will not decrease the environmental problems. There are many other ways of reducing pollution like educating people by showing them posters at some places, showing the advertisement. In addition, the government should show civilians the importance of water, air, land. Also, encourage them not to waste the water, not to use vehicles when they can go by walk or carpooling and not throw garbage anywhere. Moreover, the government should give plants for free and inspire people to plant them and take care of trees and gardens. According to my, these are the ways that can help to fix environmental problems.
However, some think increases the rate of petrol will control the pollution. They believe like this due to several reasons. Firstly, they think if petrol rate will go up. People will start using public transport, and People will start doing carpooling; people will not use the vehicle within walking distance. Secondly, if the petrol rate increases, people will think before buying new vehicles that will help in traffic-related problems. Lastly, they think if people will not use more vehicles and will not buy more vehicles, it will decrease air pollution. If we agree with them about reducing air pollution, what about other environmental problems like garbage, waste of water, cutting the trees, petrol rate will not fix these problems.
To conclude, raising the price of petrol is not the only way to help the environment because it does not cure all the environmental-related issues.
