Task：Some people think they have right to use as much fresh water as they want, others believe government should control the use of fresh water as it is limited resource. Discuss both views and give your opinion?
Fresh water is considered as one of the most valuable resources in this planet, but its consumption is huge due to the growing population and the increasing demand in agriculture and industry. As water shortage is becoming increasingly severe in many parts of the world, it is suggested that the government should control the amount of water use.
Considering the deteriorating water crisis,it is urgent to reduce water consumption and conserve fresh water resource. For some reasons, wasting water is common in farms, factories and households. Some people believe the government has the obligation to intervene and take steps to combat the situation. For instance, if the authorities could raise the water price, or set the maximum quantity of water consumption in factors, or forcibly promote water-saving technology in agriculture sector, the water use is expected to decline.
However, some people object to the government's intervention and believe citizens have the right to use water as they want. The main concern is that the limitation of water use may lower the living standard and cause inconveniences in daily lives,In some cases, it could lead to poor sanitary condition and the spread of diseases.The downsides of the government's policy should also be noted. For example,raising water price seems to be an effective solution, but rich people may not care about it.Instead,it would only hurt the interests of the general public.
My View is that it is justified for the government to take necessary measures to tackle the water crisis, Perhaps the first step is to raise people's awareness of water conservation, making them realize the urgency of this task .With the support from the general public, the government's policies would be better implemented.
