Define conserve and “Terra”.
Our planet is in trouble! As we know, human population keeps on increasing, our motherearth is getting more crowded and the environment is getting worse because of human irresponsible behaviour and attitude. Recently, our focus is “how to conserve Terra”. It is a good question whether everyone should concern about it? As the old saying says, the environment is our home and it depends on us to protect it. As we get informed by newspaper, Guang Zhou has been dust-haze for a few days and citizens there, had to wear gauze masks in order to protect their breath systems. What leads to this phenomenon? What will happen if we destroy our environment continuously?
