Do you think pollution is a big problem nowadays?
Yes, definitely. Air and water pollution are huge issues in the modern world… The air pollution problem is especially [tooltip hint=”Serious, severe.”]grave [/tooltip] due to the increasing amount of [tooltip hint=”Gases, ejected from an engine as waste products.”]exhaust fumes[/tooltip], Which are produced by cars, and result into a poor [tooltip hint=”The cleanliness of the air we breathe”]air quality[/tooltip].
What do you do to prevent our environment from pollution?
A lot of things… First of all, I don’t [tooltip hint=”to throw rubbish in inappropriate places.”]litter[/tooltip]. Also, my family and me try to buy only [tooltip hint=” Products that do not harm the environment.”]environmentally friendly[/tooltip] goods whenever we can… And finally, I try to save trees… I print on both sides of every sheet of paper I use and use any left over white space to scribble notes.
Have you ever participated in any environmental events?
Yes, of course! Last year I participated in an event in my hometown, which was all about preserving nature… We were taught about the [tooltip hint=”The heating of the atmosphere due to the carbon dioxide and other gases.”]greenhouse effect [/tooltip] ) (and I learned about many [tooltip hint=” A category of animals or plans that might become extinct.”]endangered species[/tooltip] in the world.
Now, have a look at the card and prepare a monologue
Describe an environmental problem or event. You should say:
- What is it
- Where is it happening
- What problems does it cause
I would like to talk about [tooltip hint=”In my opinion, it is a big, if not the biggest, problem that we are facing nowadays. The mainAn increase in temperature all-over the world, as a result of greenhouse effect.”]global warming[/tooltip] reason of global warming is the [tooltip hint=”Heating of the atmosphere due to the carbon dioxide and other gases.”]greenhouse effect [/tooltip] … Nowadays people are producing excessive amounts of greenhouse gases, mostly by burning fossil fuels. These gases let sunlight in, which warms the Earth, and then block that heat from leaving… That breaks the delicate natural balance and causes our planet to warm… As global warming changes the climate on the whole planet, it affects all countries in the world and causes many serious problems… For example, global warming causes [tooltip hint=”The process of icebergs’ melting.”]melting of glaciers[/tooltip] , which in turn raises the sea-level… Eventually, coastal areas are flooding and agriculture is damaged unless appropriate measures are taken… As it is a worldwide problem, I think that only joint efforts will help us to overcome this issue.
In which way do people damage our planet?
Er… In my point of view, we damage the Earth in many ways. Just take a look at all those factories that empty [tooltip hint=”Poisonous rubbish, produced by industrial processes.”]toxic wastee[/tooltip] into rivers and lakes… People also destroy a great deal of natural areas in search of [tooltip hint=”Energy resources like gas and oil…”]fossil fuels[/tooltip]. Not to mention [tooltip hint=”Killing animals illegally.“]poaching[/tooltip] and endangering of wild animals.
Do you think that the environmental situation will improve in the nearest future?
Yes, I would like to believe so… People are getting more and more aware of the major environmental issues that we’re dealing with nowadays… I hope that we will [tooltip hint=”Live a life that is closer to nature.”]get back to nature[/tooltip] and start caring about our planet more.
