Unit 4 Global Warming
Save the earth!

What can we do about global warming?

We should do something about global warming. Because it could have many negative effects on the earth. With the temperature increasing, the polar ice caps eventually would melt, causing sea levels to rise by several meters. Coastal and low-lying cities would be submerged. Some scientists predict severe storms, droughts, famines, the spread of diseases and the destructions of species.

What shall we do in our daily life?

Task 1:
Skim the first letter, and answer the questions below: 1. Who is the writer?

2. What is the purpose of the email? / What are the two concerns of the email?

1. Who is the writer?
A student named Ouyang Guang.

2. What is the purpose of the letter? / What are the two concerns of the letter?
① His opinion that, as an individual, he can have no effect on environmental problems.
② Getting some suggestions for what he can do about global warming ;

Task 2: Read the second email, and answer the question:
Do Earth Care agree with Ouyang Guang’s opinion that individuals can have no effect?

No, Earth Care dose not agree.

Task 3: Now scan the letter and list Earth Care’s suggestions in the chart on P30, and discuss whether you can carry out each suggestion. Give reason for you answers.

If you are not using electrical appliances, turn them off. If you’re cold, put on more clothes instead of turning up the heat. Motor vehicles use a lot of energy, so walk or ride a bike if you can. Recycle cans, bottles, plastics and newspapers and buy things made from recycled materials.

First para.

Point of view

First point of the Second para. argument Evidence Second point of the argument Evidence

Third para.

Fourth para.

Point of view

First para.

Point of view

Cigarette buts and plastic bags are a serious environmental problem.

First point Butts are small but are Second of the still bad for the para. argument environment.

Evidence: 1.1600 billion cigarettes are smoked each year in China. Many of these become litter.

2.4.5 trillion butts are littered every year in the world.
3.Butts are ugly. 4.Butts contain toxic chemicals. These get into the water supply. These decrease the quality of the water and endanger living things. 5.Butts take up to 5 years to break down, so the toxic chemicals add up to a great amount.

Plastic bags are a danger Second to the environment. Third point of para. the argument Evidence 1.Plastic bags are made from non-renewable resources. If they are not recycled, these resources are lost to us. 2.In china, 2 billion plastic bags are used every day. 3.Plastic bags last from 20 to 1,000 years in the environment. ……

Fourth Point of para. view

The environment would be less polluted if we cleaned up cigarette butts and plastic bags. The best solution would be not to smoke or use plastic bags at all.


In groups of four, make a poster for the school that tells the students various ways they can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the air.
