Protecting the Yangtze River

As the third longest river in the world,the health of the Yangtze River has raised concern both in China and abroad.Rapid development and an increase in

population have meant that the amount of water taken from the river is rising, and that the waste being put back into the river has been increasing.This is not good news for the people who rely on the Yangtze River for water.Nor is it good news for the wide range of fish and wildlife that live in or along the river. Many people have recognized the importance of protecting the Yangtze River, and organizations and projects have been set up to deal with the problem.The Green River Organization,for example,educates people on the importance of protecting this great river.It also watches the river and stops the illegal hunting of animals,which has put the wild animal population in danger.

Two special government projects are also under way.The first project,a water and soil conservation project,was set up in 1989.This project resulted in farmers replacing their crops with trees or grass.It has already been a success because it has helped improve the local environment and the land around the river.

The second project includes nature reserves for white—flag dolphins,one of the rarest animals in the world.The number of white-flag dolphins in China has dropped because of pollution in the Yangtze River.The white-flag dolphin was last seen several years ago,though scientists are still hopeful that the animal has survived.

We still have a long way to go to solve all the problems in regard to the Yangtze River.However,people have finally realized that it is their responsibility to protect this great river.Because of this,the situation on the Yangtze River is improving.The efforts of the Chinese government and people to protect this much—loved river will be appreciated for years to come.

Climate change and a low-carbon life

There is no doubt that the world climate has been changing in recent years. Many people blame this change on gases such as carbon dioxide. Animals and humans produce carbon dioxide when they breathe. However, many other human activities also let off carbon gases. Anytime something is burnt, carbon is put into the atmosphere. Cars and other vehicles burn petrol in their engines, and electrical power plants most often burn fuels such as coal and oil in order to produce electricity. Therefore, the more petrol and electricity we consume, the more carbon we are letting off.

One thing we can all do to help solve this problem is to walk or use a bicycle when possible. Although we produce carbon when we breathe, the carbon we produce is much less than that produced by a car. Of course, there are times when we need to travel long distances. In this case, public transport such as buses and the underground is always a much better choice than a private car

or a taxi. If you must drive a car, it is never good to travel alone--you should

try to find other people to travel with you.

At home, you should use as little energy as possible. Turn off the lights and

anything else electrical when not in use. Since factories use a lot of energy and

also let off carbon gases, it is important to recycle as much as possible. In

particular, metal products and paper products require a lot of energy to

produce, so you should find ways to use these again without throwing them

away.

Last but not least, you can plant a tree, because trees absorb the carbon

dioxide in the air to produce oxygen. Planting a small tree is cheap and easy,

and two decades from now, when you look at what will have become a large

tree, you will find a sense of satisfaction knowing that you did your part to

help solve the problem of climate change.

保护长江

作为世界上第三长的河流,长江的环境问题已经引起了国内外的关注。飞速的经济发展和入口

增长意味着取自长江的水量不断上涨,而排l口J到长江中的废物也在不断增加。这对依赖长江用水的

人来说是个不好的消息,对生活在江中或沿岸的大量鱼类和野生生物来说也是个不好的消息。

许多人已经认识到保护长江的重要性,他们已经成立组织和设立项目,来解决这个问题。例如,

绿色江河组织教育人们,让他们了解保护这条大河的重要性。该组织还监视长江,阻止非法捕捞。

非法捕捞已经威胁到野生动物的数量。

政府的两个特别项目也在实施中。第一个项目是水土保持项目,启动干19xx年。这个项目使得

农民退耕还林或退耕还草。这个项目已经取得成功,因为它有效地改善了当地的环境和江边的土地

情况。

第二个项目是白鳍豚自然保护区。白鳍豚是世界上最稀有的动物之一。由于长江的污染,中国

白鳍豚的数量急剧下降。尽管科学家还在期盼着白鳍豚不会绝种,但人们最后一次看到白鳍豚已经

是在好几年前了。

要解决有关长江的所有问题,我们还有很长的…‘段路要走。但是,人们终于认识到他们有责任

来保护这条大河。因此,长江的环境正在改善。中国政府和人民为保护这条深受人们热爱的河流所

做出的努力会在未来得到赏识。

气候变化和低碳生活

毫无疑问,最近几年世界气候一直在发生着变化。许多人将这一变化归咎于二氧化碳等气体。

动物和人类在呼吸时会排出二氧化碳。然而,人类的许多其他活动也会释放出二氧化碳。每当物体

燃烧时,碳就会排放进大气中。小汽车和其他车辆燃烧汽油来发动引擎,发电站通常靠燃烧诸如煤

和油之类的燃料来发电。因此,我们消耗的汽油和电能越多,我们释放出的碳就越多。 我们能做的有助于解决这一问题的方法之一一就是尽量步行或使用自行车。尽管我们呼吸时产生

碳,但所排出的碳要比小汽车产生的碳少很多。当然,有时候我们也需要长途旅行。这种情况下,

与私家车或出租车相比,公共交通工具如公共汽车和地铁是更好的选择。如果你必须开车,独自出

行永远不是最佳选择——你应该试着找人与你同行。

在家你应该尽可能少地消耗能量。不用电灯以及其他电器时,应该关掉。由于工厂消耗大量能

源,也排放出大量碳化气体,尽量多地回收利用是非常重要的。尤其是金属产品和纸质产品需要消

耗大量能源来生产,因此你应该找到重复使用这些产品的方法,而不是把它们扔掉。

最后但并不是最不重要的一点是,你可以植树,因为树能够吸收空气中的二氧化碳,释放氧气。

种植一棵小树很便宜也很简单,但二十多年之后,当你看到它们都长成大树时,会有一种满足感,

因为你知道自己为帮助解决气候变化问题尽了你的一份力。
