problems: cleaning lakes, rivers; studying nature and the effect of pollution; recycling
cans and paper.
Ukrainian: The importance of this of this task is pointed out by ecologists and
relations between living things and relations between living things and their
environment. However, each of us must do everything possible to keep the land, air,
and water clean. We don’t want to have one more Chernoby1.
Russian: ecology is a science about nature. Practically, it is a science of studying
whether we, human beings, keep our common home, the Earth, and how we use the
gifts it gives us: air, minerals, plants, and animals.
Australian: The Yarra in Australia was once such a pretty place to sit beside on a
hot summer day. But that’s all changed now. Factories have appeared on each side of
the river and people, sitting besides the river now, water now.
American: As we know, protection of nature has become one of the vital problems
of the 21
century. The Earth provides people with everything that makes the
foundation and cultural production. But the development of industry has a bad
influence on the nature of the whole world. People pollute land and water greatly. I
think it is very dangerous because it damages the health of people.
American ecologist: Ecology is the science of how living things are related to
their environment. Many Americans are concerned about their ecology today. They
are concerned about protecting the environment from pollution, overcrowding, and
annually – which means that we consume more than 850 mln trees. But now we save
200 mln tons of paper a year by recycling, Recycle!!
Canadian: the close cycle use of water by industry was put into practice. Each
factory purifies and reuses the same water, instead of taking more from the river or
lake. Most of the factories in the gas, iron and steel industries now operate closed
cycle water system. It is the duty of mankind to respect and defend nature’s rights.
English: Plants are the basis of our life on the Earth. Yet now, in Britain
countryside’s, wild plants are being destroyed by pollution on a scale never known
before. Many meadows heaths, bogs and woods are gone forever.
Canadian: Around our planet there is a coat of gas called ozone. It’s our protector.
It helps keep our skin from hard sun rays and protects the land.
Australian: Farmers often spray chemicals on crops to protect them against pests.
These chemicals are called pesticides. Scientists have found that pesticides can cause
health problems when they end up in food, especially for kids.
I must say, there is some good news: the Australian government helps farmers to
find ways to protect crops without using many pesticides.
English scientist: We must do everything possible to save nature, to make our
rivers and air clean. Scientists point out the importance of this task. The branch of
science that deals with the environment is called ecology. From the point of view of
ecology, mankind should first of all lessen pollution.
American scientist: The Earth is surrounded by a blanket of invisible gases, white
make the greenhouse effect on it. The sun’s rays penetrate through thick coats of
gases like a roof on a greenhouse. Factories and plants throw much waste into the air.
Even cutting down trees makes hear in all, this makes the greenhouse effect. If the
Earth’s temperature becomes higher only by some becomes degrees, it will change
the climate of the planet. Keep our Earth. Help stop the greenhouse effect by using
