☆Pollution has become a serious problem. 污染已经成为一个严重的问题。

☆There are many natural catastrophes occurring in nature. 自然界里有很多自然灾害发生。

☆We rely on the Earth for everything we need to survive, so let's take care of it. 我们依赖地球获取我们生存所需的一切东西,因此让我们来细心呵护它吧。

☆If we're all prepared to recycle paper, thousands of trees could be saved every day. 如果纸能被循环利用,那么每天就能挽救千千万万的树木。

☆People ruin natural beauty. 人类破坏了自然美。

☆Don't you feel a bit chocked sometimes? 难道你没觉得有时会有点儿喘不过气来吗?

☆Air pollution can damage the environment. 空气污染会对环境造成危害。

☆The environment here is very pleasing. 这儿的环境真的让人感觉很舒服。

A:Is the air pollution serious in your place?

B:It used to be, but the government has been working hard to improve it recently. So now, we can see the blue sky in Beijing again.

A:Many efforts have been made for a better environment, such as the "No Car Day".

B:Sure. We all have to be aware of energy saving and environmental protection.

A:What can you do to protect the environment?

B:First, I'll try my best to protect it. Second, I'll ask the people around me to also do it.

A:It is easier said than done. I am curious to see how far you can go.

B:OK. We'll bet on it.

A:你那里的空气污染严重吗?

B:曾经很严重,不过政府近些年做了很多努力来改善空气质量。所以现在,我们又能看见北京蓝色的天空了。

A:大家都在为改善环境做着努力,比如说"无车日"。

B:是呀。我们必须注意节约能源和保护环境。

A:你打算怎样保护环境?

B:首先,我会尽自己的努力。然后,我会告诉周围的人也保护环境。

A:说来容易做来难。我倒是好奇你能进展到什么程度。

B:好啊。那我们打赌吧。

A:The air in Beijing is seriously polluted. Look! I can even see the floating dirt overhead.

B:Yes, air pollution in China is extremely serious, especially in cities with heavy industry.

A:Isn't there any protecting measures adopted by the government for the sake of people's health?

B:There are many, but some depurating devices are not so effective. Some effective devices are so expensive that manufacturers can't afford them.

A:That's it. Then why not consider reducing some heavy industries?

B:It's pretty hard! China is a developing country and needs heavy industries to increase its GDP.

A:How about transferring some plants to suburbs?

B:Good idea!

A:There is a low population density in suburbs, and the harm to people is also slight.

B:However, it brings great inconvenience.

A:Like what?

B:For example, transportation. Many people live in the city, but they have to commute to work every day. Then they will spend too much time on the road.

A:Oh, that's really a problem.

B:Every coin has two sides.

A:北京空气污染很严重。瞧!我甚至能看到头顶上漂浮着的尘土。

B:是的,中国的空气污染相当严重,尤其是一些重工业城市。

A:为了人民的健康,难道政府没有采取一些保护措施吗?

B:采取过很多措施,但很多净化设施效果不明显。有效的设备又特别昂贵,很多厂家都支付不起。

A:确实。那么为什么不减少一些重工业?

B:这很难。中国是发展中国家,特别需要重工业来增加国民生产总值。

A:把一些工厂迁到郊区怎么样?

B:是个好主意!

A:郊区人口密度小,因而给人们带来的影响也小。

B:但是,将工厂迁到郊区会带来很多不便。

A:比如说?

B:比如交通问题。很多人是住在城里的,但是他们又不得不每天去郊区上班。这样他们会花很多时间在路上。

A:哦,这确实是一个问题。

B:事物总有其两面性的。

A:Where did you go last weekend?

B:To the lake.

A:Did you have fun?

B:Not at all. The water smells so bad. I miss my childhood very much.

A:Why?

B:Because I could catch fish in the river, but now they are all gone.

A:Yes, I hate the polluted water, too.

B:For myself, I hate the people who pollute the water much more than the water.

A:But what are the causes of water pollution? Do you know?

B:Many causes of pollution including sewage and fertilizers contain nutrients.

A:Yes, water pollution affects animals, humans, plants and ecosystems.

B:So we cannot ignore this problem, otherwise it will be difficult for us to live in the future.

A:Certainly. Everyone has the responsibility of protecting the water.

A:你上周末去哪里了?

B:湖边。

A:玩得好吗?

B:一点也不好。水臭臭的。我好怀念我的童年。

A:为什么?

B:因为以前我可以在河里抓鱼,可是现在什么都没有了。

A:是啊,我也痛恨那些被污染的水。

B:对我而言,我更痛恨污染水的那些人。

A:但是什么造成的水污染呢?你知道吗?

B:很多原因,不过主要是污水和肥料中的养分。

A:是呀,水污染会影响到动物、人类、植物和生态环境。

B:所以说我们不能忽视这个问题了,不然有一天我们将无法生存。

A:对。每个人都有保护水的义务。

A:Where are you going on your trip?

B:I think Hebei is a good place.

A:But I heard the north of China is experiencing severe sandstorms!

B:Really?

A:Yes, it is said that Hebei is experiencing six degree strong winds.

B:How do these storms affect the people who live in these areas?

A:The report said the number of people with respiratory tract infections tended to rise after sandstorms. The sand gets into people's noses and throats and creates irritation.

B:It sounds like sandstorms are trouble for everybody!

A:You are quite right.

A:你要去哪儿度假?

B:我想河北不错。

A:但我听说中国北部现在有严重的沙尘暴!

B:是真的吗?

A:是的,据说河北正刮六级大风。

B:沙尘暴对生活在这些地区的人们有什么影响?

A:报道说沙尘暴过后呼吸道感染的人数会增加。沙子进入人们的鼻孔和喉咙后会使这些器官发炎。

B:沙尘暴好像给每个人都带来了麻烦!

A:你说得很对。

A:I love this city.

B:So do I.

A:The air here is so fresh, and watching out from the window, your eyes are filled with green.

B:Yeah. That's one of the reasons why I choose to have a vacation in this area.

A:A nice environment is likely to make people feel pleasant and does good things for your health.

B:Exactly. Look at that tiny garden. It must be very comfortable to have a walk there.

A:I agree with you. The surrounding area of mine is not so good.

B:Maybe you could grow some plants at home to beautify your own space.

A:That's a good idea.

A:我喜欢这个城市。

B:我也是。

A:这儿空气清新,放眼望去满眼都是绿色。

B:是啊。这也是我为什么来这儿度假的原因之一。

A:好的环境能使人心情舒畅,还有益身心健康。

B:就是。看那个小公园。在里面散步肯定特别舒服。

A:我想是的。我家那儿的环境就没这么好。

B:或许你可以在家里种点植物来美化你自己的环境。

A:好主意。
