Many people are active in fighting against unfair treatment to colored people， women ， animals and so on。 Right now I am talking about fighting for respect to our environment。 Though the environment doesn’t have a mouth to deprecate what humans have done to her， she retaliates through action。 In the early years the Chinese cut down large quantities of trees， at the source of the yellow river， which led to the disappearance of big forests and terrible floods。
As a result，the Huangtu plateau which was once covered with grass and forests was turned into barrens that supported fewer plants。 Another example was in several developed countries。 Because many chemical factories discharged poisonous gas without filtering it， cities were covered with so much poisonous gas that people were killed by the air they breathed in。 What horrible scene! What we are suffering is only a small part of what the nature once suffered。 If we don’t take action to show respect to the environment， we will have to face an increasingly awful situation。 Measures should be taken to protect the environment on which we are relying。
First governments should forbid destroying vegetation， rivers and lakes， oceans， as and the atmosphere as well。 Second voices should be made to announce the public of the importance of protecting the environment。 Third enterprises should pay special attention to the effect they have on the environment and work out solutions for the problems。 Only by changing the way we treat the environment can we get along well with it。 Only by saving the environment can we save ourselves。
In modern society， we tend to bee more and more aware of our living environment or physical environment， because we are not clean as before。 So many people now choose their house as to its environment but not its location and expenses to afford it。 As we all know， the environment pollution is more and more serious during these years， what we could do is to make great efforts in protecting environment gradually。 As to government pollution， as to mon people。 We also try to protect it and make it remain clean。 Although we have managed to protect the environment to a certain extent。 It is still a very long way to go。
Protection of the Environment
Although the world develops much faster and better, the resources on the earth get fewer and fewer.In order to protect them,something must be done.
Save water. Water is the source of life. No water, no life. So it's very important for us to do so.Not only should we protect drinking water and stop polluting it, but also make full use of it.
Save electricity. It is crucial. We can't imagine what the life will be like without it.Everyone should do his best to save electricity. Don't forget to turn off lights or other electric machines when we finish working.
Save forests. They are useful .Please stop cutting them down and use recycled paper instead. Make our world a green one to live in.
Recycle useful rubbish. Plenty of rubbish can be recycled like cans,paper, bottles, and so on. We can save resources in this way.
To protect the environment, governments of many countries have done a lot. Legislative steps have been introduced to control air pollution, to protect the forest and sea resources and to stop any environmental pollution. Therefore, governments are playing the most important role in the environmental protection today.
In my opinion, to protect environment, the government must take even more concrete measures. First, it should let people fully realize the importance of environmental protection through education. Second, much more efforts should be made to put the population planning policy into practice, because more people means more people means more pollution. Finally, those who destroy the environment intentionally should be severely punished. We should let them know that destroying environment means destroying mankind themselves.
Environmental problems are becoming more and more serious all over the world. For example, cars have made the air unhealthy for people to breathe and poisonous gas is given off by factories. Trees on the hills have been cut down and waste water is being poured continuously into rivers.Furthermore, wherever we go today, we can find rubbish carelessly disposed. Pollution is, in fact, threatening our existence.
The earth is our home and we have the duty to take care of it for ourselves and for our later generations. Fortunately, more and more people have realized these problems. Measures have been taken to cope with these problems by the government. Laws have been passed to stop pollution. I hope the problem will be solved in the near future and our home will become better and better.
