Some think that private companies should pay for pollution clean up, while others say it should be a government’s responsibility.
Discuss and state your own opinion.
Some people argue that private enterprizes ought to pay for cleaning polluted water and air, while others opine that it is the duty of the government. Although some say the State should pay as companies pay taxes, I believe factories should pay for this cleaning process.
On the one hand, there are those who contend the government should allocate some fund to clean the environment as they receive huge sums of money from companies in term of taxes. For example, on average, one medium-size company pays 30% of their total profit as a tax. Therefore, spending a tiny fraction of this amount can make a huge difference. However, I believe this school of thought make these companies irresponsible towards pollution they are causing.
On the other hand, some believe that insisting non-governmental companies to pay for the damage they are doing in terms of water and air contamination make them cognizant of their responsibility towards the environment. If each corporation has to pay for mitigating pollution problems, it will take more deliberate actions to limit their effluents flow into water channels and fumes expelled from their companies. For instance, in some countries, factories have to pay for the damage they do to the environment, and as a result, there is very low pollution level in spite of a large number of mechanical factories. I believe this is a good idea to minimize the deleterious effect of private limited firms on nature.
In conclusion, although some contend governments should pay as companies pay taxes, I believe factories should pay for this cleaning process as this leads to them taking some preventive measures to reduce pollution caused by them. In my opinion, this trend is neither positive nor negative, and as such, it does not have to be changed a year.
