"Environmental Issues"

There are many environmental issue facing Vietnam. In your opinion, what are the causes and effects of the biggest environmental issue that Vietnam must confront.

The growth of the economy in Vietnam is very fast these days, so the Vietnamese are busier with their jobs than in the past to have a high standard of living, and they seem to forget many serious issue problems such as the pollution of the environment. Thus, this country is facing environmental problems. There are many causes and effects of this dilemma.
The one reason for environmental pollution is economic development. Industrial parks appear more and more today. Smoke from factories basiccally occurs due to coal burning which releases a huge amount of chemical substances like sulphur dioxide into the air making pollution. Moreover, many factories do not have a wastewater treatment system. The wastewater is released into rivers, channels and lakes directly which causes an imbalance in the water. Overcrowding from urban areas is also one of the main reasons for environmental problems. Traffic jams occur very often in the city which makes smoke and dust. People in the city do not care about the environment, so they do not use the bins for garbage. For instance, there is a lot of garbage everywhere into Ho Chi Minh city.
The effects of environmental issues are evident too. Release of sulphur dioxide and hazardous gases into the air causes global warming and acid rain. The health of people will be effected. They can catch lots of diseases such as cancer. Taking an example, we breathe in the polluted air that leads to the increase in asthma and cancer. There are many people who must go to the hospital in Vietnam every year because of cancer and asthma. Unfortunately, people die which is caused by this disease.
In conclusion, environmental pollution is a serious problem. The government must have suitable solutions to tackle this burden. If Vietnam has a good resolution, the environmental pollution will be solved.
