The natural environmental problem is the one of the most important problem to impact our world. Some problems are very famous like “global warming” and “Marine pollution”. We usually the government determine to spend millions or billions dollars to curb environmental pollution from news. In fact, we can save the money because we always curb environmental pollution after we did it. The natural environmental problem was already permeated our life. We almost can find it everywhere. For example, in the poem, “The Fish,” we can find some environmental pollution: “I stared and stared/and victory filled up/the little rented boat,/from the pool of bilge/where oil had spread a rainbow/around the rusted engine/to the bailer rusted orange,/the sun-cracked thwarts,/the oarlocks on their strings,/the gunnels--until everything/was rainbow, rainbow, rainbow!/And I let the fish go.
