IELTS Writing Task 2

Topic: The exploration and development of safe alternatives to fossil fuels should be the most important global priority today.To what extent do you agree or disagree?


Twenty-first century is regarded as the technological revolution. Energy plays a main role in industrial development and most power sources are from minerals, particularly fossil fuels. However, the emission from fossil fuels is effecting the environment. This causes climate change or even a possible apocalypse. Therefore, the exploration and development of safe alternative energy, including biofuel, wind power, solar energy and hydropower, should be prioritized to preserve environment.

In the modern lifestyle, eighty percent of energy is from fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and natural gas, which are the source to improve the quality of living and support for development. For instance, coals have been used to produce power for Australian manufactures for commodity production. Therefore, the use of fossil fuels may be the source of national development.

However, the world should not heavily rely on fossil fuel power because this can increase carbon dioxide emission in the atmosphere which leads to global warming. Friendly environmental energy should be developed and explored because it can preserve environment. Furthermore, renewable energy has drawn attention from the developed world. For example, the Japanese government has pledged billions of dollars for development of friendly energy in developing nations. Thus, friendly energy can reduce pollution from the atmosphere.

In addition, renewable energy should be supported by the developed nations because the main source of pollution and global warming come from the fossil fuel emission of industrial countries. For example, the United States and China are the main polluters in the world. Thus, renewable energy projects should be funded by the developed world.

In conclusion, friendly energy should be prioritized because it can reduce global warming and improve environment.
