FCE B2 Writing Part1 Essay - Planting tree
1. Clear the air
3. My own idea
In the last 100 years, our planet has suffered the most important deforestation in its entire history. Only a century has been enough to see how 3/4 of the green surfaces have disappeared due to human activities.
If each person on the planet born in the 20th century had planted a tree along his or her life, we wouldn't have gotten the actual levels of pollution in our cities because the resulting forests grown would have helped to clear the air and reduce contamination.
Nevertheless, we are on time to revert this situation. Small actions like planting a tree can make the difference between a devastated Earth in the next century and a planet where we will be able to inhabit in brotherhood with nature.
In addition, those big vegetation areas would have provided shade and fresher conditions that had minimized the global warming effect produced by gases and high temperatures.
To sum up, although it seems a bit late, today is better than tomorrow for starting to help our environment and, in the end, ourselves.
