这是根据字幕抄下来的文字,当时即将考六级,觉得作为六级作文挺好的,同学们可以借鉴一下美国副总统的水平。该片可使79届奥斯卡最佳纪录片呢!
are you ready to change the way you live?
the climate crisis can be solved, here is how to start?
you can reduce your carbon emissions. in fact, you can even reduce you carbon emissions to zero.
buy energy efficient applicances, such as lightbulbs.
change your thermostat and use lock thermostats, to reduce energy for heating and cooling.
weatherize your house, increase insulation, get an energy credit.
if your can, buy a hybrid car. when you can, walk or ride a bicycle. where you can, use light rail and subway.
tell you parents not to ruin the world that you will live in.
if you are a parent, join with your children to save the world they will live in .
switch to renewable souces of energy.
call your power company to see if they offer green energy, if they do not, ask them why not?
vote the leaders who pledge to solve this crisis, write to congress, if they do not listen,run for congress.
plant trees,lots of trees,
speak up in your community, call radio shows and write newspapers.
insist that american freeze co2 emissions.
join international efforts to stop global warming.
reduce our dependence on foreign oil, help farmers grow alcohol fuels.

这篇文章是由于我看了美国前副总统戈尔自编自导的一部电影《难以掩盖的真相》,该片是第79届最佳奥斯卡纪录片奖,戈尔在2007年被评为诺贝尔和平奖得主。可以再这里下载“点此”。片中讲述了是什么引起了气候变暖,传统的说法是:太阳光射到地球,其中一部分反射回空中,另一部分加热地球表面温度,由于大气层的存在,反射回大气层的光线会有一部分被阻挡,用以维持地球的温度。但是由于工厂CO2等气体的排放和森林植被的减少,增加了大气层的厚度,被大气层反射回来的光线就增加,导致地球表面温度升高。
这引起的最直接的几个后果就是:
1.海平面升高。

2.气候变暖,使诸如蚊虫之类的活跃期延长,加速疾病传播。禽流感、猪流感等就是例子。

3.温度升高,使风力增强,台风风力更加强大,危害加重,海啸贫乏。

以上这些只是从美国前副总统戈尔的一片演讲中截取的一些片段,看过这个他自编自导的纪录片之后,深刻感觉到人类的确应该反省了,玛雅文明的日子只到了2012年12月31日,也有人称这是人类即将灭绝的一天,电影《2012》呼之欲出。看看这惊心动魄的预报片吧。
