2021/10/03 Sunday afternoon, at home, alone - because of Covid19

But as I said, we should take advantage of the time you have and practice your skills, such as English skills. And when the pandemic go away, we get a strong English skillset, be confident to go international.

This is the third IELTS writing part 2 I wrote on my blog, a Discuss-Opinion type.

Some people say that the main environmental problem of our time is the loss of particular species of plants and animals. Others say that there are more important environmental problems.

Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

Some people believe that the primary environmental issue of today's society is the loss of particular of species of plants and animals while opponents of this idea believe that humans are facing many other environmental problems which are more important. In my opinion, I agree with the latter idea.

On the one hand, it is undeniable that the extinction of some species of plants and creatures is one of the main environmental issues. Firstly, such a trend may lead to an imbalance of the ecosystem. If the ecosystem loses its balance, there are many negative consequences for the next generations. For example, if birds or bats, which are predators of harmful insects such as grasshoppers, are extinct, those insects will attack crops and humans' lives. Secondly, plants play a vital role in creating and reserving oxygen in the atmosphere, as well as maintaining underground water. In fact, forests are being cut down to make way for farms, which cause erosion in the mountainous areas and flooding during monsoon seasons every year.

On the other hand, the world has to face many other environment-related problems other than the aforementioned issue. One of the main issues which needs to be tackled is environmental pollution. In fact, air, water and waste pollution are the issues that are drawing a great deal of attention from the public. Another issue is global warming, which is posing such a great threat to human life. Climate change has accelerated the rate of ice melting in Antarctica, which causes the sea levels to rise. Higher sea levels are coinciding with more dangerous hurricanes and typhoons that move more slowly and dump more rain, contributing to more powerful storm surges that can strip away everything in their path.

In conclusion, although the disappearance of some species of plants and animals is an important environmental issue, it seems to me that humans still have other problems which are more vital.
