We live on a very beautiful planet – on the Earth. It is our home. Our planet has very rich resources. They are, e.g., big and small rivers, green forests, high mountains, blue lakes and seas. Everybody likes to breathe fresh air, to swim in clear water.
Unfortunately, nowadays there are many problems connected with the environment. They most burning are air pollution, water pollution and land pollution.
First I’d like to speak about water pollution. Today all the oceans or seas are used as a dump. Many rivers and lakes are poisoned, too. Fish and reptiles can’t live in them. There is very little oxygen in the water. As a matter of fact, factories and plants produce a lot of waste and pour it into the water.
If to speak about air pollution, it is a very big problem nowadays. Millions of cars, buses, trucks emit harmful substances into the atmosphere. So, it is hard to breathe in large cities and towns. Air pollution is very harmful for people’s health. Radiation has become one of the main problems. It is not good for health too. Many people died from radiation some years ago in Chernobyl. It was a real tragedy.
Unfortunately, not all people understand the importance of nature protection. On summer days a lot of people go out of town. They have picnics and often leave much rubbish - plastic bags and bottles, tins and paper. Besides, many people like to pick the flowers, which you can find in the Red Book.
There are many organizations that help to save our planet. Greenpeace is the biggest and the best-known. It started to function in 1971. Greenpeace saves animals, plants and people.
As for our town, the most burning problem, in my opinion, is air pollution. As a matter of fact there are too many cars and, besides, we’ve got a cement plant. In recent years many people prefer to live in the suburbs of Novorossiysk, because everybody wants to breathe fresh air and to drink fresh water.
In my opinion, all people must do everything to protect our nature and to save life on the Earth.
