IELTS Speaking Answer | An environmental problem
Experts identified what they referred to as global warming back in the 1970s, but the idea didn't really catch on with the mainstream media and public until much later. When it finally became a public and political hot potato, normal people were still quite unaware of the extent of the problem as most of the focus was on the reduction of greenhouse gases, as they were called. Nowadays, the experts talk about climate change which seems to cover all aspects of our lives and how they affect the enviornment.
Over the years, we've seen many changes in government policies and also everyday products. For example, we've seen unleaded gas for cars, aerosol sprays being modified to remove CFCs which were deemed to be harmful to the environment. Now, various governments have a variety of plans and schemes to invest in alternative and renewal energy sources and encourage the public to adopt these as part of their energy consumption.
Some of the solutions we've seen being offered to the public include hybrid and electric cars, solar powered heating systems and of course the many recycling campaigns which encourage people to think about how they dispose of things when they no longer need them, and also their consumer habits in general. I'm sure in the future we'll be expected to make even more changes and will be offered even more options which are environmentally friendly.
