My Understanding of Environmental Protection

Man and the environment are closely related. Man relies on the environment for water, food and shelter. A harmonious relationship between man and the environment is essential for human survival on the earth.

However, man and the environment have never been on such bad terms as they are now. As society develops, man ’s transformation of nature has severely polluted his living environment. Deforestation leads to changes in rainfall patterns, causing devastating floods, droughts and sandstorms. The discharge of chemical pollutants endangers our health and the lives of other beings. And mass production has resulted in the shortage of irreplaceable natural resources such as coal and oil. If we take no immediate and effective steps to protect our environment, human beings may be the next species to become extinct.

We should do our best to protect our environment by planting more trees,taking care of wildlife, reducing industrial wastes, using renewable energy, and imposing heavy fines on environmentally-unfriendly activities, so as to preserve the environment for future generations.

Fame — Good or Evil?

Fame has always been pursued by many people for the advantages it brings about. Fame canassure one of a high social status, high regard, great admiration, etc. Fame can also bring one wealth as a celebrity has more chances to earn big money. Besides, the applause and flowers from fans may boost one’s self-confidence and increase one’s sense of fulfillment.

However, fame can ruin one’s life, too. Itdeprives one of his privacy. As a public figure, he is often chased by fansand journalists, and his private life never escapes the media’s attention or public curiosity. Fame also places one under great pressure. He has to work in line with public expectations and thus becomes the slave of his own success.

So fame is a double-edged sword. I don ’t seek fame and I don ’t envy those who are famous. I highly appreciate what the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow says about

2 fame: “The talent of success is nothing more than doing well whatever you do without a thought of fame.”

My Career Choice

When it comes to the choice of career, different people consider the matter from different perspectives. Personally I prefer to be a teacher.

The Declining Popularity of Reading

Reading has always been an essential part of human civilization. It enlightens us, empowers us with knowledge, and improves our character and taste. It opens an unknown world to us. However, there has been an acknowledged global decline of the public interest in reading. I think there are several causes for this decline. The first is probably the temptation brought about by modern technology, seducing people to replace reading with other means of entertainment and relaxation such as computer games, films, TV programmes, and online chatting. The second is the social frenzy for money and power which has drained people of their time and energy, leaving them hardly any time for reading. The third cause might be the decreasing social awareness of the importance of reading and, and as a result, less attention is paid to reading.

It is high time that we took action to promote reading. Firstly, we should view technological advancements discreetly, and people should be aware that modern means of entertainment can not replace reading. Secondly, the social perception of success must be modified so that people should know that wealth alone does not make a gentleman while reading can improve one ’s character. Thirdly, efforts should be made to enhance public awareness of the importance of reading. In short, I believe the decline of reading indicates the decline of a nation and must be addressed.

My View on Globalization

Globalization has brought us immense benefits. It helps realize our dream of a prosperous world. It boosts the world economy by opening global markets, smoothing the flow of capital and commodities, and increasing productivity and employment opportunities. In addition, the concerted efforts globalization motivates in areas like fighting against terrorism, environmental protection, health, and education have also contributed to the wellbeing of humanity.

However, there are always voices against globalization. Some people accuse multinational corporations of providing unfair and unsafe working conditions, using cheap labour, exploiting natural resources and causing ecological damage. They also criticise globalization for not only modernizing but also westernizing native cultures. They also argue that globalization leads to the spread of epidemics and diseases. In short, globalization is a double-edged sword and we must handle it with care. We must set up rules and regulations as well as sound supervising systems. If it is well handled, globalization will surely serve humanity. (155 words)
