The Environment.

Among the interesting debate topics, I decided to choose the following topics: Government and the environment, and UV radiation.
Environment protection is the responsibility of the government and the people. Environmental damage is expensive, and individuals cannot afford to fix any form of damage either humankind or in case of a natural disaster. One of the major duties of the government is to protect people and infrastructure in times of crisis, hence, government bodies should continue to be responsible for environmental disaster. However, residents should be educated on how to abide by environmental policies and how to avoid environmental disaster caused by humans and make every effort to keep their environment clean and safe. According to Wilde (2002), Economic punishment such as heavy fines and even other harsher penalties can be imposed effectively on individuals or groups that are deemed responsible for environmental damage.
UV radiation from the sun is very important in our environment and affects nearly all living organisms.….please click the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $5
