Model Answer 1: [Disagree]
Governments, environmentalists and large organisations, in many countries, are trying to curb environmental problems, and a part of this effort is to aware people about how they can contribute to environmental issues. It is surprising how our diet habits or the dresses we wear can all contribute to the environmental problems and that's why without involving ordinary citizens, government bodies and private organisations can't reverse the downward fall when it comes to the environment.

To begin with, our environment is becoming worse with every passing day and without awareness among ordinary citizens, it will become impossible to achieve environmental protection. We, as ordinary citizens, are constantly contributing to global warming, pollution and climate change. The car we drive exhaust carbon dioxide, the dresses we wear require a huge amount of fibres and water, the plastic bags we use end up in the water, and even the diet we follow can increase the possibility of climate change. Thus, if people are not made cognizant of their actions that are directly or indirectly responsible for global warming, they won't fully comprehend the gravity of the intricacies and won't feel responsible. Climate change is so large a problem that only governments and large organizations can't work to find a solution for that and a coordinated effort is required.

It is undeniable that countries have taken serious steps to curb environmental problems and our leaders are meeting frequently to discuss it. Restrictions are being in place on gas emissions, fossils fuel use, plastic production and use, and alternative sources of green energy are being researched and invested. But if the efforts are not made at an individual level, the magnitude of damage and pollutions would far outstrip the efforts.

Finally, scientists, engineers, environmentalists and authority may come out with proposal and invest money in research, but they can't control the amount of plastic bags we use and throw away without recycling. Every environmental problem is related to our human lifestyle and unconsciousness and its high time to include syllabus about environmental protection in our school. We have got only one planet to live in and we must save it.

Whatever we do to the environment will return and affect us and all level of education should emphasize how we can be more responsible to protect it. A joint approach by the authority and mass people can only make it happen.


Model Answer 2: [Agree]
All countries in the world are suffering from environmental crisis, which is exacerbating each year. In my view, individual effort is less significant in reducing such damages; hence, the government and private organisations should come forward to tackle this ever-increasing global warming and environmental degradation issues.

Certainly, environmental damage is an intricate issue which primarily results from careless industrialisation. Factories release chemicals into the environment without any treatment. So, they are liable for such devastating environment degradation and they should pay all the money to reinstate the environment. According to the World Economic Forum’s survey, industrial wastes are the key reason for the contemporary ecological collapse and it comprises 70% of the world’s pollutions.

Moreover, pollution is not an issue for a single country, but it is creating havoc in all countries. As all countries are inextricably connected, no country can deny its duties to resolve the issue. While the iceberg in Antarctica melts, it increases the risks of floods in the lower sea-level countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Whereas 80% of global warming is happening due to the excessive fuel usages of the developed countries. Rich countries should reduce their fuel consumption to limit the global temperature rise so that other countries become free from any environment-related jeopardies.

In conclusion, the intensity of the environmental damages has reached its peak, so the individual effort will not greatly impact on the reduction of this worldwide issue. In fact, large organizations and government should resolve the issue because they are responsible for most the damages and they have the means to control it.

Well done.
Come out is a phrasal verb. As far as I know, phrasal verbs are informal in IELTS writing.
In the introduction I think "the dresses we wear" is correct.
