RR tourism by Chong Kar Wai
I agree with the writer that tourism causes environmental impact. Tourism increases traffic which leads to environmental destruction. According to the passage, colossal traffic jams are created by unchecked growth that congests many main roads especially junctions. This therefore leads to increase in air pollution due to the exhaust fumes produced by cars, affecting the environment. As tourism increases, number on cars grow and the roads are congested, causing the cars to waste more engine staying at one area. With a target of 17 million visitors, there is a high risk of more air pollution from carbon emissions from planes and land transport. Moreover, there would be more littering as foreigners may think that they do not need to maintain Singapore cleanliness as it is not their country and will start littering. Therefore tourism leads to pollution in the air and on land.
