Government’s responsibility to protect the environment

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 I strongly believe that government is responsible for protecting the environment for the two following reasons.
 The first reason is that government should compensate for environmental damage. Many constructions and deforestations, etc., have been operated by government for years. Considering the fact that it has been destroying the environment, it is inevitable to take some measure about it. As for solution, I think one of the greatest ways to preserve ecosystem is to establish sanctuaries for wild animals and plants. If there are enough places where human intervention does not occur, we can conserve the environment to some extent.
 The second reason is that attitude is infectious. If government neglects the environment, its attitude rubs off on people and they will continue polluting the earth. Furthermore, each individual’s sense of responsibility for the environment is the key to the preservation. When it comes to solution, I think Japanese “eco-point system” which gives points to people who bought eco-friendly products and they can purchase other eco-friendly products with the points is an excellent system and other counties should follow the example.
 As I mentioned, for the aforementioned two reasons, I strongly believe that government is responsible for protecting the environment.

メモ

政府の環境保護責任です。
構成は、なぜ政府に責任があるかを理由を2つに分けて書いて、最後のほうに1つずつ対策になる提案を書きました。
今回は、ちょっと気になったので、日本政府のエコポイントについて、触れてみました。
エッセイでは、良い制度だと書きましたが、”政府はただ地デジを普及したいだけ”、”消費を促してるだけ”など批判の声も多いようです。
また、大量の税金が使われていることも、批判の原因かもしてません。
