Protect the Environment
With the development of morden society, the environment problem is becoming more and more serious.Though we try our best to stop it, there are still many problems of environmental protection in recent years. One of the most serious problems is the serious pollution of air, water and soil. The polluted air does great harm to people's health. The polluted water causes diseases and death. What is more, vegetation had been greatly reduced with the rapid growth of modern cities.
You know protecting the environment is a daily thing: for example, when summer or winter comes, you will turn on the air conditioner.In fact, when you heat or cool,your home has a big effect on the earth, says John Cormody, an environmental researcher. He says that buildings use more energy than transportation and industry.Almost half of the energy that buildings use goes into heating or cooling.
To protect the environment, governments of many countries have done a lot. Legislative steps have been introduced to control air pollution, to protect the forest and sea resources and to stop any environmental pollution. Therefore, governments are playing the most important role in the environmental protection today.
In my opinion, to protect environment, the government must take even more concrete measures. First, it should let people fully realize the importance of environmental protection through education. Second, much more efforts should be made to put the population planning policy into practice, because more people means more people means more pollution. Finally, those who destroy the environment intentionally should be severely punished. We should let them know that destroying environment means destroying mankind themselves.
In fact the things we can do are easy. Like not littering the useless batteries everywhere, assort the trash which we want to throw away, and also protect the animals and plants around us, because they are important parts of the energetic Beijing.
Luckily I had a chance to take part in an activity that is we planted 5 trees in our campus. My classmates and I worked very hard. This activity doesn't only plant trees, but also contribute to our environment. Look at the trees, I believe, tomorrow there will be more trees and flowers standing in China and give Chinese a beautiful environment.
We are all Chinese people, live on the earth. We have only one capital, just like we have only one earth. If we don't beautify our environment, who will? Good environment depends on good human consciousness. We should say that protecting our surroundings is not easy. That's why I'm standing here to summon people do it.
The 2008 Olympics games is coming, this is a chance for us to show the good environment we have to other people and to display a nice and beautiful country to the world. If we do from the bottom of our heart, China's tomorrow will be more brilliant, it will have blue skies, cleaner rivers. Who don't want China to become more and more beautiful? If we do our best, tomorrow will be better!
