Pollution(污染)

时间:2007-6-12栏目:英语四级作文

            Pollution
    Our surroundings are being polluted fast and man's present efforts can not prevent it. Time is bringing us more people, and more people will bring us more industry, more cars, larger cities and the growing use of man-made materials.
     What can explain and solve this problem? The fact is that pollution is caused by man -- by his desire for a modern way of life. We make "increasing industrialization" our chief aim.So we are often ready to offer everything: clean air, pure water, good food, our health and the future of our children.There is a constant flow of people from the countryside into the cities, eager for the benefits of our modern society. But as our technological achievements have grown in the last twenty
years, pollution has become a serious problem.
     Isn't it time we stopped to ask ourselves where we are going-- and why? It makes one think of the story about the airline pilot who told his passengers over the loudspeaker,"I've some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we're making rapid progress at 530 miles per hour. The
bad news is that we're lost and don't know where we're going. " The sad fact is that this becomes a true story when speaking of our modern society.

污染
    我们的环境受污染的速度之快,是人类现在的努力无法阻止的。时间带给我们更多的人口,更多的人口带给我们更多的工业,更多的汽车,更大的城市和人造材料的更多消耗。
    什么可以解释、解决这一问题呢?事实是污染是人类造成的—通过人类对现代生活方式的欲望。我们把“提高工业化”作为我们的主要目标。所以通常我们愿意付出任何东西:清洁的空气,纯净的水源,美好的食物,人类的健康和孩子的未来。人们不断地由乡村涌入城市,急于追求现代社会带来的利益。但是过去二十年中随着科技成果的不断增长,污染已成为一个严峻的问题。
    难道还不是我们停下来问问自己,要到哪里去,为什么的时候吗?这使人想起了一个飞行员的故事,他通过喇叭告知乘客:“我有一个好消息和一个坏消息。好消息是
我们正在以每小时530英里的速度快速前进。坏消息是我们迷路了,不知道目的地在哪。”悲哀的是谈到我们现代社会的时候这就变成了一个真实的故事。
