nowadays, the environmental protection is becoming one of the most important issues in the world. being one of the members of our society, what shall we do to protect the environment?
first, stop using plastic bags, boxes and bottles. stores should be required to use the bags, boxes and bottles which are made from paper.
secondly, more and more trees and flowers should be planted to keep our surrounding clean. people must be required to plant plants around their houses and work places.
finally, we must control the pollution by law, according to which, polluted water and air exhausted from factories should be forbidden.
these are some of the measures that we can take to protect our environment and they are not hard tasks for us. remember, the earth is the only planet we could live at present.
since the first day, bnbm has paid more attention to protect the environment as its social responsibility, by developing green building materials, producing green products and creating green enterprise. according to the spirit of "from the nature, for the nature and return to the mature", bnbm has tried its best in developing new technology and improving equipment to reduce the pollution.
low-carbon” is one of the most popular buzz-words in this year. not only china but all countries focus on the topic of “low-carbon”.
if i have a belongs to my own hut, i'll change all power for energy-efficient and form the habit of conveniently switch off the power supply, i'll go shopping when the poster to bring home, spread them in my wardrobe below; during the hot summer months, i'll prepare a water bed, when the water can no longer cold out laundry,and in cold winter, i can use a pouchof hot water to keep them warm, next morning i can use no longer tepid water to wash and gargle. if i were a full-time housewife, i'll make the household life plan closely, i will bring my family can't wear clothes to tailor shop processing, such as cushion made cushion, i'll various life wastewater to flush the toilet. if i have a long holiday, i'll go up about friends go around the world, in each place can plant trees on land planted sapling, grass green, leaving the green belong to us。
as a citizen of china, if everyone can actively protect the environment in our daily life and if we would like to reduce our carbon footprint, the scenery of blue sky, green grass and lovely animals will appear in china everyday.but i totally support the view, that is to say, emotion without action is irrelevant! do you unplug electronics after you use them? do you switch off everything before you go to sleep? do you adjust your tv screen a bit dimmer to save
energy? do you re-use water for different activities around the house? each of these seemingly insignificant adjustments in your daily life can make a difference in saving the environment of tomorrow.
we all know that nothing is more comfortable than sitting in the warmth of a hearted car while it’s snowing and hailing outside in the freezing cold…but with global warming and even global cooling becoming more pressing by the day, not to mention your own health, take a walk ,ride a bike ,reduce your carbon footprint on the environment .it is said that tiny streams can be combined into a vast ocean, small trees can be an immense forest, and every little makes a mickle.
“low-carbon” is not just a buzz-word but a goal that people from all over the world wanna get. so, reduce carbon footprint! reduce damage! save energy! save the world! these actually are everywhere around us and small details. in order to blue ocean, lush forests, lovely little animals... let us from the side with, from small start, we started our low carbon live, mutual care to our survival home - earth! thanks for your listening.
demand for graduates in the uk with skills related to sustainability is booming. academia is waking up to the need to train specialists in green architecture, chemistry and engineering.
dean millar founded the world’s first ever bsc course in renewable energy at exeter university after working as an industry consultant.
he said: “a lot of companies were complaining that there was a lack of bright young people suitably trained to work in the renewables business.”
now his course has around 90 students learning the ins and outs of biomass, tidal, solar and offshore wind power.
their career prospects are incredibly bright. employment opportunities are not just limited to the energy sector, but segue into the regulatory and, increasingly, investment sectors as well.
“the big boys are moving in. the returns to be had are significant, especially in terms of wind development,” said millar. “financial firms need expertise across the board so they can make sensible investment decisions.”
students on york university’s master’s course in green chemistry are ideally placed to take advantage of the growing demand in industry for graduates with waste minimization skills.
professor james clark is founder of york’s green chemistry centre for excellence and the world’s leading green chemistry journal, green chemistry. he said: “we are now talking to producers of automobiles, electronics, furniture and pharmaceuticals, people who need to use chemistry but don’t think of themselves as chemists.”
as waste production legislation becomes increasingly strict, the traditional emphasis on making as much of a chemical as possible is shifting towards minimizing the waste that process creates. “a lot of chemicals are made from petroleum, but we are developing sustainable ways to make carbon, typically from biomass such as dead plants and trees,” said professor clark.
all of last year’s graduates quickly found employment, some receiving multiple job offers in a variety of different fields.
li li, a 26-year-old chinese postgraduate student, graduated from york in 20__. she said:
“i hadn’t heard about green chemistry in china. it was a new area and i was curious. now the government back home needs people who know about these principles.”
deep in the heart of wales, 400 students at the centre for alternative technology’s (cat) graduate school of the environment are busy designing and building everything from high insulation wood housing to wind power turbines. with energy costs rising, building firms are increasingly looking to minimize the energy wasted heating and lighting homes, a service cat students are well-equipped to provide.
a new institute is being built to meet the burgeoning demand for places and a distance learning facility will be launched next september so foreign students can complete cat courses from home.
the expertise being taught on these courses is essential to a continually expanding range of companies and government authorities. yet there is a larger goal at stake; the students are at the forefront of the battle against climate change. in the words of dean millar, “if we’re going to save the planet, we need to start turning these people out in big numbers.”
the quality of human life has improved greatly over the past few centuries, but earth is being harmed more and more by human activity. as we develop our technology, we demand more from our planet. eventually, this will harm people as well.
our planet gives us everything we need, but natural resources are not endless. strip mining devastates whole regions, leaving bare and useless ground. deforestation removes old growth trees that can't be replaced. too much fishing may harm fish populations to the point where they can't recover. we are too careless in taking what we want without giving anything back.
there are more people than ever, living longer that ever. so is it any surprise that many areas suffer from too much development? anyone living in or near a city has experienced "urban sprawl". there is a new shopping area on every corner and new houses, townhouses and apartments everywhere. traffic gets worse and worse because planners can't keep up with growth. keeping up with human demand is hard enough. environmental concerns come in last.
with growth comes pollution. companies and communities dump waste into water. landfills are full of trash. emissions from factories pollute the air. barrels of industrial waste and worse, radioactive waste, have no safe place to go. if we're not careful, we can harm our planet beyond repair.
people need to respect the earth and try to preserve it. if we don't, what kind of future will we have?
as we all know, plants and animals need water. so do the people's life and production, life couldn't go on without water.
with the rapid development of agriculture and industry, more and more water is needed. therefore, water is becoming scarce in many places. what's more, a lot of rivers and lakes are beginning polluted by the waste watcr from factories. fish can't live in them any longer. at the same time, thc waste water does great harm to people's health.
in order to make rivers and lakes clean and prevent water from being polluted,we must do something to stop all sorts of pollution.
water is very important for living things. without water there can be no life on earth. all animals and plants need water. man also needs water.
water is found atmosteverywhere. even in the driest part of the world there is some water in the air.
as we all have found out, water may be a solid, or a liquid or a gas.when it isa solid, it may be as hard as brick, when itis a liquid, you can pour it out of a container. when it is a gas, you cannot see or feel it.
although about 70 percent of the earth's surface is covered with water,there are many places in the world still running out of water. so we should make good use of water on earth.
