Unit 1

CARNIVAL IN TRINIDED

Part 1

Carla and Hari are students in Trinidad. Their Chinese friends, Li Mei and Wu Ping, are visiting for Carnival holiday in February.

C=Carla LM=Li Mei

C: Li Mei, why are you wearing those shoes? You can’t be serious! Your feet will hert so much by the end of the parade that you won’t be able to stand. Would you like these comfortable shoes?

Thanks, Carla, but I wanted something to go with this dress. Those are the wrong colour.

You must be joking! That dress is too thick. Do you realize that it’ll be thirty-five degrees out there and that you’re going to be walking and dancing until midnight? You have to have something light and cool – and a hat! LM: C:

Part 2

The boys are already there when the girls arrive. The music cover the loudspeakers makes it difficult to hear each other. One after another, big bands arrive, along with thousands of dancers and musicians. The Carnival is beginning! C=Carla WP=Wu Ping H=Hari

H: Sorry we’re late! I had to get Li Mei some comfortable shoes! No problem. We’ve just got here. But I forgot my water – can I have some of yours? Me, too! We just came, and I’m already tired and thirsty! We’re each going to need a lot of water tonight! Shall I run over to the stand there and get something to drink for everybody? Hurry up, Carla! The bands are moving! OK, I’ll hurry! But remember… we’re going to go slowly ar first, so Wu Ping and Li Mei can get used ro the music and the heat! Yeah, OK! Remember, you two, if we get separated in the crowd, we’ll meet at the north end of the parking lot by 8 o’clock. Then we can go together to see the winners of this year’s awards for best band and best costumes.

Unit 2

HOW AN UNBALANCED DIET CAN AFFECT YOUR HEALTH

Wang Peng went to the library, where he happened to meet an expert on diets. He asked him for help.

WP=Wang Peng E=Expert

WP:

E: Hello. Can you help me, please? I want to find out more about balanced diets. Of course. A balanced diet needs energy food like rice and noodles, body-building food like fish and meat for protein and fat, and protective food like fruit and vegetables for fibre and vitamins.

Yes, but does it matter how much rice, noodles and sugar I eat?

Yes. If you eat too much, you may become obese. This means you are too fat and it may lead to other illnesses. However, if you don’t eat enough rice, noodles or sugar, you’ll get tired easily.

I see. I’ll be careful about that. Does it matter how much fish, meat or cheese I eat?

Too much can also make you fat, but if you don’t eat enough, your bones won’t grow strong. A long time ago, children who didn’t eat enough vitamin D and body-building food didn’t grow straight legs. They got an illness called rickets.

Oh dear! Do people still have the problem?

Sometimes.

Then what about fruit and vegetables? How much should I eat?

You ought to eat about five big spoonfuls of different fruit and vegetables every day.

Really? I didn’t know that.

Yes. In the 18th century sailors at sea used to find that their teeth fell out and they had bad spots on their skin. They got it because they didn’t eat enough fruit and vegetables. The illness is called scurvy.

Goodness! What about now?

It’s very rare now. People eat more fruit and vegetables. You need protective food like that for clear skin and bright eyes.

Thank you very much. You have given me a lot to think about.

Unit 4

THEORIES OF GRAVITY

Michael Jones of the New Space Magazine is talking with space traveller Li Yanping about changes in the theory of gravity. WP: E: WP: E: WP: E: WP: E: WP: E: WP: E: WP:

LY=Dr Li Yanping MJ=Michael Jones

Part 1

MJ: Hello, Dr Li Yanping. It’s so good of you to talk to me. Some students ask us why things always fall back to earth if you throw them up in the air. Could you explain it?

LY: Well, at first people thought it was because the earth was the centre of the universe. Of course that was wrong. One day Isaac Newton watched an apple fall to the ground. He said that something else must be pulling the apple back to earth. He called it “gravity”.

MJ: I see. Did people accept his idea?

LY: They did. Later they worked out that bigger objects (like the sun) have stronger gravity than smaller objects (like our planets). If you’re travelling in deep space, you couldn’t fall back to the earth. You’re just too far away. Part 2

LY: Does it mean there’s no gravity in space?

MJ: No. in a spaceship you would feel the pull as it got closer to such an object. You would travel faster and faster towards it.

LY: Until you hit it?

MJ: Not exactly. You may pass it very fast and then it would throw you out into

space again. After that you would slow down to the usual speed.

LY: How do you know this?

MJ: In 1905 Einstein said that in space large objects make space-time bend; the larger the object, the further space-time bends. So time goes slower in very strong gravity.

LY: What about black holes?

MJ: That’s a place in which has such a strong mass that nothing can escape from its gravity. There is a kind of edge around this mass. If you cross over this edge, it’s impossible for you to get back. However if you don’t cross this edge, you can still escape. Stephen Hawking has done a lot of research into back holes. He has shown that they “spit” things out as well as “eat” them.

Unit 5

WHAT IS A CANADIAN?

I am a Canadian and very proud of my country. However, people sometiomes don’t know what being Canadian really means. People who come to Canada are encouraged to be proud of their own culture and keep their own customs. Except for the Native Indians, everybody else who lives here came from another country or

their ancestors did. Canada is a micture of many cultures and races. It is what we call a multicultural country.

We have two official languages, Frech and English. Even though we encourage people to keep their own customs, we expect everyone to learn French or English in order to live in Canada. If you live in the province of Quebec, you are expected to speak French. However, the Native Indians and the Inuit of Canada are still trying to keep their languages alive. You can hear some of their languages in the names of rivers and lakes as well as cities. “Canada” means “village”. Toronto and Ottawa are also Native Indian names. There are radio and television programmes,newspapers and magazines in over 80 different languages across Canada, and the Toronto city government offers help to people in 70 languages.

Many of our big cities have areas where people from the same culture live near each other – there might be a Chinatown, a Little Italy, a Korea Town and so on. However, people whose families have lived in Canada for a long time are usually all mixed up. My own family is a mixture of English, Native Indian and French. My neighbour’s family is Chinese, German and African!

When I say that I am proud to be a Canadian, maybe you can help me decide what a Canadian is.

高 1英语必修3课文翻译 Module1

欧洲的大城市 巴黎

巴黎是法国的首都,也是法国最大的城市,坐落在塞纳河畔。它是世界上最美丽的城市之一,每年有八百多万游客前来参观。最受游客欢迎的旅游景点是埃菲尔铁塔,它是巴黎著名的象征。世界上最大的艺术博物馆之一——卢浮宫——也位于巴黎。这个城市也以餐馆、咖啡馆和剧院而闻名。Module2

人类发展报告在2000年,来自世界各国的147位领导人一致同意共同努力到2015年或在更早的时间减少贫困。由此产生了人类发展报告。

这份报告一个最重要的部分是人类发展指标。它审阅了175个国家的发展成就。指标从三个方面衡量一个国家的成就:寿命、教育和收入。这项指标显示了一些令人意外的情况。挪威高居榜首,而美国则排在第七。位于前五位的其他国家是:冰岛(2),瑞典(3)澳大利亚(4)荷兰(5)。英法国约三分之二的艺术家和作家住在巴黎。 巴塞罗那

巴塞罗那是西班牙第二大城市,位于(西班牙的)东北海岸线上,距离首都马德里东部五百公里处。巴塞罗那最有名的标志性建筑之一是圣家大教堂,由建筑家安东尼奥·高迪设计。高迪从1882年起从事这项工程直至1926年逝世。至今教堂还没完工。 佛罗伦萨

佛罗伦萨是一座因文艺复兴而闻名的意大利城市,这场艺术运动始于14世纪并且延续了300年。在文艺复兴时期,历史上一些最伟大的画家在佛罗伦萨生活和工作。佛罗伦萨许多最美的画作和雕像都出自于莱奥纳多·达·芬奇和米开朗琪罗这样的艺术大师。佛罗伦萨每年大约有一百万旅游者来访,他们都是来参观艺术馆,教堂和博物馆的。其中乌飞齐美术馆最为著名。 雅典

希腊是希腊的首都,作为西方文明的发祥地而闻名于世。2400年前,它是世界上最强大的城市。一些诸如雅典卫城山上的巴特农神庙那样的建筑都是在这段时期建造的。希腊最为著名的作家就居住在古雅典。他们的作品影响了后世的作家。

欧盟

什么是欧盟呢?

欧盟是欧洲国家的一个组织。各个国家都是独立的而且管理方式也不同。例如,在联合王国(英国),国家的首脑是国王或女王。另一方面,在法国,国家的首脑却是总统。但是每个国家都向欧洲议会驻派代表,来控制在每个成员国所发生的事情。

欧盟是怎样创建的呢?

创建欧盟的想法是在20世纪50年代开始的。最初的成员国为法国、德国、比利时、卢森堡、荷兰和意大利。在20世纪的下半叶,成员国逐渐增加。到2000年为止,已经有15个成员国。这些新的国家是奥地利、丹麦、芬兰、希腊、爱尔兰、葡萄牙、西班牙、瑞典和联合王国。

现在有多少国家属于欧盟呢?

在2004年,欧盟的成员国增加到了25个。捷克共和国、爱沙尼亚、匈牙利、拉脱维亚、立陶宛、波兰、斯洛伐克共和国和斯洛文尼亚,还有地中海的岛国塞浦路斯和马耳他都成为成员国。扩大的欧盟人口达到5亿多,是美国人口的2倍。

国位居第十三位,而中国处于中等地位。处于末端的十个国家均是非洲国家,塞拉利昂(西非)排在最后。

报告描述了八个发展目标。其中最重要的是:减少贫穷和饥饿;

确保所有儿童11岁之前都能接受教育;对抗艾滋病和其他疾病;

改善穷苦人民的环境,例如,确保他们有安全饮用水;鼓励发达国家给予其他国家更多的帮助。

2003年人类发展报告列举了一些成功发展的例子。譬如,在九年(1953-1962)的时间里,中国的人均寿命增加了13岁。过去的十年之内,中国有1.5亿人脱贫。然而,挑战仍很严峻。在发展中国家,每天有7.99亿人在挨饿。其中一半以上的人来自南亚或非洲。虽然发展中国家80%以上的儿童能上小学,但仍有1.15亿的孩子得不到教育。发展中国家里十多亿的人喝不上安全的饮用水。当然在世界的其它地方,例如东欧,现在的饮用水大多是安全的。

报告显示我们正在进步,但是我们必须做出更大的努力。虽然发达国家提供了一些经济援助,但是提供援助的数量应该大大增加。有趣的是,捐钱最多的国家是荷兰、挪威和瑞典。它们都属于世界上五个最富的国家,所以他们这样做是合情合理的。

友好城市

英国的牛津和法国的格勒诺布尔在哪些地方相似呢?嗯,它们都是人口在十万到二十万之间的中等大小城市。它们都有一些大学和工业。旅游业对它们来说都很重要,在地区上它们都靠近一些美丽的乡村。但是它们还共享一些别的东西:它们之间有一个缔结友好城市的协议。

缔结友好城市新的想法,然而它在近年来变得更受欢迎的原因是现在人们可以更容易地找到有关其他国家和城镇的信息并去参观这些国家和城镇。这个协议是在两个城镇之间有相似的特征,例如旅游业、工业、文化和娱乐等方面。

友好城市协议鼓励两个城镇的人们互相进行交流访问。学校之间、戏剧团体之间还有运动团体之间都可以进行参观和交流。来自于外国城镇的访问者通常住在他们所访问的城镇居民家里。人们通常会为访问者举行一个大型的聚会。

友好城市协议可能对于那些想练习讲另一种语言的学生和人们来说是最有用的。这是因为和一个外国家庭在一起生活一两周就意味着你必须讲他们的语言,这样你的水平就会提高很快。

Module3

什么是龙卷风?

龙卷风是指一个从空中的雷暴延伸到地面而生成的旋转气柱。最厉害的一次风速达到每小时400公里。几乎所有的龙卷风都发生在美国,从东南部的德克萨斯州直到北部的南达科他州。 龙卷风能卷起汽车、火车甚至房子,把它们卷到旁边的街道——甚至能卷到邻近的城镇。龙卷风可以卷走猫背上的皮毛、鸡身上的羽毛。它们能毁掉房子,却把房内的家具留在原处。 平均来说,美国每年发生800次龙卷风,造成大约80人死亡、1,500人受伤。最恶劣的一场龙卷风发生在1925年,波及到了美国的三个州:密苏里州、伊利诺斯州和印第安纳州。等到风停时,已有700多人死Module 4亚洲的沙尘暴

几百年以来,沙尘暴一直是许多亚洲国家面临的主要灾难。科学家尝试过多种方法解决这个问题,在中国,也发动了群众运动来对付沙尘暴。

沙尘暴是夹带沙尘的强烈而干躁的风。沙尘暴夹带的沙尘含量常常很大以致于可以遮天蔽日。风力强大时可以搬动沙丘。世界上沙尘暴发生的四个主要地区是中亚、北美、中非和澳大利亚。来自内蒙的任建波是这样来描述他小时候遭遇的一次沙尘暴的:“遇上沙尘暴是一个可怕的经历,”他说,“你一点办法也没有。那是我所遭遇过的最可怕、最危险的境况。你只能祈求会活下来。那时候我觉得我会消失在沙尘下。”

亡,2,700多人受伤。 什么是飓风?

飓风是强劲的热带风暴,通常发生在南大西洋、加勒比海和墨西哥海湾。飓风发生时,风暴速度达到每小时120公里或者更快,引发巨浪、暴雨和洪灾。每年平均有六次大西洋飓风,通常会影响到从得克萨斯州到缅因州的美国东部海岸。

最恶劣的一次飓风于1900年9月8日发生在德克萨斯州加尔维斯顿。时速高达200公里的狂风和五米高的巨浪袭击了加尔维斯顿城。37,000人口中有6,000人遇难,3,600幢大楼被摧毁。 一个离奇的事件

这是关于1900年加尔维斯顿飓风的故事。

查尔斯·科格伦是十九世纪一位定居加拿大的爱尔兰演员。后来他移居纽约,并在那里获得了成功。19世纪90年代后期,他迁居加尔维斯顿,直到1899年在那里去世,也就是飓风袭击的前一年。掩埋科格伦的公墓被飓风所摧毁,他的棺材最后被卷入了大海。

八年后,渔民们在位于加拿大东部爱德华王子岛他家附近发现了他的棺材。墨西哥湾流沿着美国东海岸把它(棺材)一直带到爱德华王子岛,行程3,000公里。埋葬于德克萨斯州的查尔斯·科格伦又回到了加拿大。

太平洋周围的地震

全世界每天大约发生400次地震,一年大约十多万次地震。

中国位于世界上最活跃的一个地震带上并且那里已经发生了多次严重的地震。最严重的一次地震发生在1556年陕西省的华县。这次地震影响了中国中部的八个省,涉及了800平方千米的地区。在一些地区,60%的人口死亡。总计,有83万人丧生。

1906年4月18日发生在加利福尼亚的地震是美国历史上最严重的一次地震。它在凌晨5点15分开始,仅持续了1分钟。然而,它却引发了这个国家历史上最严重的自然灾害。

加利福尼亚地震所引起的火灾造成了最大的破坏。这场火燃烧了3天,总共毁掉了二万五千座大楼。旧金山有大约500人死亡,25万人无家可归。在这个加利福尼亚,地震和火灾导致3,000人死亡。

1906年的地震由圣安德烈亚斯断层的运动引起的。一百年后,圣安德烈亚斯断层的运动持续给整个加利福尼亚带来问题。

中国的西北地区是中亚沙尘暴中心的一部分。沙尘暴发端于沙漠地区。因“荒漠化”越发严重,中国近年来发生沙尘暴的次数明显增加了。这是由于气候变化和人们伐树挖草,使土地变成荒漠后产生的一种作用。

沙尘暴有时候会影响北京。居民醒来时,看到昏黄的天空,狂风夹着黄沙在城里肆虐。暴风有时持续一整天,车辆开得很慢,因为浓浓的尘埃降低了能见度。

中国中央气象站能在沙尘暴到达北京前几周预报沙尘暴,但沙尘暴的力量有时很惊人。沙尘暴到来时,气象专家建议人们不要外出。家住北京的黄小梅说:“在沙尘暴中骑车真可怕。风力很强,呼吸困难,沙尘使人难受。所以要出门,最好带上口罩。”

沙漠离北京西境只有250公里。为阻止沙漠的逼近,政府已经开始植树。政府已经种了300亿棵树,并准备在未来的五年里继续种植。

绿色行动

一些国家对环境的保护要好于其他国家。在欧洲,德国和北欧国家非常努力地改善环境。在一些国家,例如德国,人们把垃圾放在不同的袋子里——纸放在一个袋子中,塑料放在另一个袋子中,等等。然后垃圾被运走,如果可能的话,被循环利用。在冰箱和气榕胶罐里发现的氟氯碳化学元素都被禁止了。也有法律禁止人们燃烧太多的煤。

在20世纪70年代,当人们对于环境问题了解得更多的时候,“绿色”行动就开始了,不久便遍布整个欧洲。“绿色”行动试图使各国政府认真考虑环境问题以及如何去保护环境。它搜集关于工业破坏环境的信息,并把这些信息提供给社会。

Module 5中国古代的哲学家

古代中国各诸侯国之间经常发生战争。但那也是一个产生了许多哲学家的时期。孔子(公元前551—公元前479)是影响最大的哲学家。他强调了仁爱、责任和社会秩序的重要性。中国社会受这些思想的影响达2000多年之久。

孟子是一位思想家,他的理论和孔子的理论很相似。孟子生于公元前372年。父亲在他年幼时Module 6

三峡大坝

毛泽东写过一首词,在词中,他想象了“更立西江

高中英语必修三听力

石壁,截断巫山云雨,高峡出平湖”的壮丽景观。如今,他的理想变成了现实。三峡大坝制伏了世界第三大河流——长江的激流。修建三峡大坝是自修筑长城和开凿大运河以来中国最大的建筑工程,它控制了长江的洪灾并为去世,母亲把他抚养成人。他学习了孔子的学说,后来在一个诸侯国的政府内居要职。但是,当他看到统治者不采纳他的意见时, 就辞去了官职。许多年来,他周游列国,传授孔子的思想,后来成为另一位统治者的谋士。他晚年写了一本介绍他思想的书,名为《孟子》。孟子认为,人之所以不同于动物,是因为人性本善。他告诫人们,假若政府仁慈,人民就会有善行。他认为人民比政府更重要,憎恨对人民残暴的政权。

墨子是又一位极具影响力的先哲。他生于公元前476年,出身贫寒。他因不修边幅行为怪异而闻名。墨子创立了墨家学说。他的学说在某些方面和孔子学说很相似。例如,他认为政府很重要。因此,他花了许多年的时间,寻找一个人们愿意遵从他思想的国家。墨子认为,人生来平等。他的仁爱思想与孔子不同。墨子告诫人们要博爱,要帮助弱者。他憎恨战争。墨子死于公元前390年。

工业革命

18世纪后期的欧洲社会发生了一次重大变革。这个变革被称为“工业革命”。截至到那时,欧洲一直都是以农业社会为主。随着工业革命的到来,工厂出现了,并且批量生产第一次成为可能。工厂都建在城镇,结果城镇的人口大量增加了。

这些变化由于有了像蒸汽机这样的发明而成为可能。蒸汽机是1769年由詹姆斯·瓦特发明的,并且成为工业革命期间最主要的能量来源。最初,蒸汽机是在采矿时使用的,但是很快就被用在工厂和铁路上了。在工业革命期间,工厂主比农场主力量更强大。成千上万的人离开乡村去城市工作。工厂的工人们经常生活在艰苦拥挤的环境中,从1830年到20世纪早期,工业革命遍及了整个欧洲和美国,然后又蔓延到日本等其他一些国家。

我国中部地区提供电力。大坝高度接近200米,宽1500米。它是世界上最大的水力发电站和大坝,造价超过历史上的任何一项工程。

早在1919年,领导了辛亥革命的孙逸仙(中山)先生就首次提出了要在长江修筑大坝的设想。中国四分之三的能量是通过燃煤获得的。1993年,中国燃掉了12亿吨煤用于供热和发电。不幸的是,燃煤造成了严重的大气污染,加剧了全球变暖。大坝将要生产相当于燃烧4000万吨煤所产生的电量,但却不会造成那么严重的空气污染。

水库淹没了两个城市、11个县、140个镇和4000多座村庄。生活在这些地区的100多万人已经搬迁了。现在,他们在不同的地区幸福地生活着。

三峡是中国风光最美丽的地区之一。由于大坝工程,一些著名的历史遗迹被水淹没,包括屈原庙、汉瞭望塔和摩崖石刻。大约800多处历史遗迹已被淹没。其中有一部分被转移,还有一部分被博物馆收藏。

纽约的帝国大厦

世界上大部分最高的建筑物都建于20世纪90年代和21世纪,但是美国最高的两座大楼却建得比这早很多。事实上,美国的第二高楼的历史已经超过75年了!

帝国大厦建于1931年5月,是当时世界上最高的建筑物。直到1972年纽约的世贸中心被建起之前,帝国大厦一直是世界上最高的建筑物。世贸中心的姊妹塔高达417米和415米,但是这两座建筑在2001年9月被毁掉了。

关于帝国大厦的资料:

·建造大厦用了1000万块砖。 ·共有6500个窗户。

·在晴朗的天气里,你可以从顶部的观察台上看见美国的五个州。 ·帝国大厦每年遭受约500次雷电袭击。

·1945年,一架在雾天飞跃曼哈顿上空的美国军用飞机撞进大厦的第78层。

Module 2

Lingling: Is this your first time in Beijing, Richard? Richard: Yes, it is.

Lingling: How do you find it?

Richard: It's totally fascinating. It's so different from Sydney, where I live. Lingling: Now I'm fascinated. Tell me about the differences, as you see them. Richard: Well, Sydney's a younger city than Beijing. Beijing has a lot more inhabitants and ismuch more crowded.

Lingling: Yes, we certainly have a huge population, like most Chinese cities.

Richard: It's very exciting, as a result. And there's so much construction going on. Lingling: I know, we're growing very fast. For example, I don't think we have as many freeways as Sydney does, but we soon will!

Richard: I believe you! I think there are fewer tourists in Beijing-at least for now. And I get the feeling that Beijing's less dangerous.

Lingling: Yes, there's probably a lot less crime here.

Richard: What about the climate? I think Sydney has less rain. Lingling: Yes, we can get a lot of rain in July and August. Richard: I've noticed! It's pouring at the moment!

Lingling: The good thing about the rain, of course, is that it washes the pollution

away.

Richard: I've noticed that too. We don't have as much pollution as you do.

Lingling: That's because you have less industry. The air can get quite polluted here...Ok, so that covers a lot of the differences. But are there any similarities?

Richard: Oh yes...for example, I notice the wealth and the energy. Lingling: Sorry, I didn't get that. Richard: The wealth and energy. I think there are as many rich people here as in Sydney... and I think your city is just as lively as mine.

Lingling: That's good to hear. So shall we go out this evening and find some of the action?

Module 3

Reporter: I'm standing in the centre of Plymouth, the capital of Montserrat, where just one week ago, a volcanic eruption took place. With me is Frank Savage, the governor of the island. Mr Savage, thank you for talking to us.

Savage: You're welcome.

Reporter: What exactly happened last week?

Savage: Well, the volcano erupted, and ash and lava poured down the mountain towards the sea. Unfortunately, there are several villages in its path.

Reporter: That's terrible. Was anybody hurt?

Savage: No. Luckily, we had plenty of warning and I told people who lived in the path of the ash and lava to leave the island. We managed to get half the population to another island before the eruption took place.

Reporter: Why are you still here?

Savage: Well, I'm still working because there's a lot to do. Reporter: How many people live on the island?

Savage: Eleven thousand people live here and about six thousand people have left. Reporter: Which areas are the most dangerous?

Savage: Well, the most dangerous places are between the volcano and the sea. There are a lot of villages there. And it was very dangerous. Sadly, hundreds of houses caught fire when the lava reached them.

Reporter: Oh, I'm very sorry to hear that. Savage: Thankfully, no one was killed. Reporter: Are the houses still on fire?

Savage: No. Fortunately, we put all the fires out quite quickly.5Reporter: That's very good news. Well, it's a beautiful sunny day here in Plymouth. Does this mean that the danger

is over?

Savage: No! The volcano could erupt again! People must understand that it is still very dangerous and they can't go back to their houses.

Reporter: OK-so that's the message from the governor -don't go back to your houses. When will people be able to return home?

Savage: We don't know at the moment. Hopefully, it won't be too long. Reporter: Thank you for your time, Mr Savage. Savage: Thank you.

Module 4 (int=interviewer)

Int: David, what do you see as the main problems with the environment?

D.U: Well, in a nutshell, the most urgent problem of all is the climate. The world's climate seems to be getting warmer.

Int: We've seen a lot of evidence of that, haven't we? Hotter summers, warmer winters, that kind of thing.

D.U: Yes, we have. Also, scientists have found that the ice at the Poles is beginning to melt.

Int: We've heard that too. Is that really happening?

D.U: Yes, I'm afraid it is. And at sometime in the future, the ice may completely. Then it's possible that the sea could rise and coastal cities like New York and Shanghai could disappear under water.

Int: It sounds very frightening.

D.U: I couldn't agree with you more. It's scary!

Int: Can you explain why the climate's getting warmer?

D.U: Well, I'll do my best! It's pollution that's the problem. Gases from cars enter the atmosphere and stop the sun's heat from leaving the atmosphere. And factories give out chemicals that do the same thing. So as a result, the climate is getting warmer.

Int: From what I understand, carbon dioxide from cars is a major problem.

D.U: You're absolutely right. Carbon dioxide is the gas that does most damage to the atmosphere. But we have a problem with trees too. You see, trees give out oxygen and take in carbon dioxide. So they're very useful because they use up the carbon dioxide.

Int: I know what you're going to say. We're cutting down all the trees.

D.U: Yes, we cut them down because we need the land and because we use the wood for paper and furniture. That leaves more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Int: It's a terrible situation.

D.U: Yes, and another problem is all the garbage that we produce. We burn a lot of
