Model Answer 1:
Pollution is one of the serious threats which have pernicious influences on our environment and people. It is a common and widely discussed issue whether we should reduce the number of tourist flights to reduce the pollution. This essay examines the pros and cones of this and draws a reasonable conclusion.
On the one hand, there are some strong grounds to support the opinion of reducing the number of tourist flights to control the air pollution. Firstly, air flights not only causes air pollution, but it also contributes to noise pollution. Hence it affects the environment as well as people at the same time. Another important reason is- it is not always income generating, while it depends on seasons and it may lead to economical losses.
On the other hand, it is fairly easy to understand the reasons for not reducing tourist flights with the view of pollution control. Firstly, it is not only the reason for pollution. Also reducing the tourist flights does not have an impact on pollution. However, we adopt other possible strategies to limit the pollution. Primarily, we should develop technologies to build neat and clean flights especially with any technology to cap the carbon emission which is the prime cause of air pollution. Secondly, we can alter the schedule and number of tourist flights. To make it clearer, arrange these flights in such a way that it could reduce financial loss. Thus we can arrange more flights in the appropriate seasons with correct destinations.
To conclude, when we analyse the different aspects, it is proved beyond doubt that we should not reduce the number of tourist flights rather arrange in a systematic and accessible way to increase national economy. The government should implement better strategies to boost our prosperity.
