The figures for the two countries showed an increase in the amount of forested land, including New Zealand, at 28.8% in 1990, climbing to 31.0% in 2005, with a predicted rise to 32.3% in 2015. Likewise, the proportion of forested land in Chile also rose from 20.4% in 1990 to 21.5% in 2005 and is expected to increase to 22.0% in 2015.

However, in Australia and Brazil, the percentage of land covered by forests decreased. Australia’s 1990 figure of 21.9% fell to 21.3% in 2005 and is estimated to continue to fall to 20.0% until 2015. Brazil had a drop from 62.2% in 1990 to 57.2% in 2005, and this figure is projected to dip further to 53.5% in 2015.

Overall, New Zealand and Chile had an increase in the proportion of forested land, whereas Brazil and Australia experienced a decrease, and these trends are expected to continue in the future.

Task 2 Model Answer

International air travel has become increasingly cheaper over the past decade. And as air travel has become cheaper, more people are utilising this mode of transport. In my opinion, using air travel frequently ruins the environment.

Cheap air travel is said to have detrimental effects on the environment. Firstly, aeroplanes use huge amounts of fuel, a non-renewable resource. They also emit high levels of carbon dioxide, which is the main contributor to climate change and global warming. At a more local level, air travel harms air quality and noise levels. Cheap airlines offering £2 flights from London to Rome and Madrid only exacerbate the problem by encouraging more people to fly for shorter stays, thus compounding the inimical effects on the environment.

However, proponents of cheap air travel argue that it provides more opportunities in the areas of business and tourism. For instance, it is now less expensive for business people to attend meetings or conferences abroad, thus contributing to a global economy and opening up business opportunities and economic growth. Furthermore, there has been a considerable growth in tourism as access to some countries has become cheaper through reduced airfares.

All in all, people will undoubtedly continue to utilise air travel, as it is convenient. However, in my view, people should think twice before choosing air travel and consider it only in unavoidable circumstances.
