Expert Answer:

Please expand the following points for your essay.
 

Polar explorer turned environmentalist Robert Swan OBE profoundly said that the greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.

The statement implies that we think it is someone else’s job to save the planet. People protest against global warming but very few actually take steps towards reducing carbon emissions.

Millions of us are responsible for increasing the burden of non-biodegradable waste on the planet. And ironically we also like and comment on ‘use eco-friendly products’ posts on social networking sites.

Despite being taught not to litter on the streets, not to waste water and electricity, not to use products that cause pollution, etc, we repeatedly do these things as convenience is our priority.

It is each person’s responsibility to save the planet. It is inappropriate to think that one person cannot save the planet. When each one of us, across continents and borders, irrespective of our ethnicity or educational background will take the ownership of doing our bit for saving the planet, the planet will get a lease of life.
