Governments should make more effort to promote alternative sources of energy. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

主体段 2：（赞同/反对政府应该做出更多努力来发展替代能源）理由 2 + 论证
结尾段：总结理由 + 重申观点
背景句：It has been known for some time that a move towards sources of energy which are not carbon-based is urgently required to stop the effects of global warming.
个人立场：In my view, there are too few governments who seem to be promoting the use of other types of energy such as wind, wave, solar and nuclear sources of energy.
### 主体段 1
主题句：Governments at present are too reliant on oil and gas. Although some governments are doing research into the use of alternative energy sources, many are not.
递进解释：Energy from the wind, the sea and the sun does not pollute the environment and is an everlasting source of power. Nuclear power is clean, and although it is not totally unproblematic, it would provide a large amount of energy and dramatically improve the environment. Countries such as France have made good use of nuclear power.
### 主体段 2
主题句：My feeling is that more use could be made of wind power.
递进解释：In some countries, there has been a reluctance to use wind turbines, even in areas which are not densely populated, as some people believe they are eyesores. Personally, I believe they are not only useful, but beautiful as well. Governments should spend more time and effort promoting the benefits of this source of energy and trying to make the public understand the reason for change.
总结理由 + 重申观点：如果政府强迫每个人在他们居住的建筑物上安装风力涡轮机和太阳能电池板，更多地使用波浪发电并建造更多的核电站，那么他们就能设法避免严重的危险威胁地球。
In conclusion, I believe that, if governments forced everyone to have a wind turbine and solar panels on the building they live in, made more use of wave power and built more nuclear power stations, then they would manage to avert the dangers that are seriously threatening the Earth.
