"Just my thought. This is one of the best sample of questions that I have for my GRE preparation."
Nations should pass laws to preserve any remaining wilderness areas in their natural state, even if these areas could be developed for economic gain.
Write a response in which you discuss your views on the policy and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider the possible consequences of implementing the policy and explain how these consequences shape your position.
Conflict of interest is one of the main issues in recent days. Sometimes decision makers face difficulties to decide what is more important to the benefit of all in aspect of law enforcement. This problem are also encompass in environmental aspect. Specifically, some group wants to preserve wilderness area and some prefer the area to be converted into economic corridor for the benefit of the nation. The statement try to highlight which one is more important in aspect of law enforcement between preservation of wilderness area and conversion of the area for an economic land use purposes.
I would rather say that I am agree with the statement. Preservation of wilderness area is very important for future benefit. Not that I am not agree with the importance of developing an area for economic purposes, but the wilderness area provide more value than how it appears. As we all know, most of forest area in the world have been exploited and converted into urban and industrial region. The establishment and the expand of urban region are not just negatively affected the perimeter of the region but it also affect the surrounding. This term are called ‘ecological footprint’. If the exploitation continues, we worried that the earth can no longer sustained for the importance of future benefit.
I do accept that economically, if the law entrust the wilderness area to be develop for economic gain it is for sure will assist the development of a state or nation. Issues such as unemployment, investment and industry can be avoided. For instance, an effort to convert of 15 hectare land area in Gebeng, Pahang, Malaysia for the purpose of industrial have benefit at least 1500 local people in aspect of employment rate. The industry has also positively take interest for international investment.
However, my decision is ultimately will not change. Converting wilderness area for economic land use purposes can assist a nation development, but the enforcement should be strictly implemented. On top of that, not only factory and industry can assist a state or nation economic gain. Wilderness area can also play the role of an important economic play maker. The area can play it part as a two main actors. Firstly, it can be a biodiversity region with conservation program where thousand or may be billion of genetic stored in it. Secondly, it can offer sustainable eco-tourism for local, national and international tourists. With a lot of business can be created, preserved wilderness area can also provide job to people and finally assist the economic stability.
On top of that, wilderness area are widely known as resources tank because it natural ability where it can capture water and carbon dioxide. The outstanding ability of natural environment is believed can help the economic stability of state or nation for a longer period of time. To explain this, let us imagine that the state needs to allocate more money in their annual budget for water treatment, to overcome unhealthy weather issues and to provide more psychologists to treat local people due to stress and pressure of not having natural setting in their region.
Finally, I would like to express my clear thought that nations should pass laws to preserve any remaining wilderness areas in their natural state for the benefit of future generations. Human greedy should put aside as it will only deteriorate human lifestyles.
