Write a 350-word essay on one of the following topics: 

  1. “As the meat industry is a major contributor to greenhouse gases, a strict new series of laws have been proposed, including a move to ration meat to three portions per week.” Discuss this proposal, considering both sides of the argument. Is it an infringement on personal choice? Would it be effective? Is it necessary?

 

      2. Learning how to behave: with people socializing much less these days, should social skills, etiquette and good behaviour be taught in school? What kind of behaviour could be taught? Or is this a terrible idea? Discuss each side of the debate in a balanced essay.
