PostSubject: Waste Not,Want Not:Exploring Matters Further   Mon 20 Jan - 22:14

A/ Reading comprehension.
    Read the text carefully  then do the activities:
 
    
Of the many great problems which face the world today, pollution is one which may truly be called ‘man-made’. Although increasing technology has brought many benefits to mankind, we are in danger of destroying all that makes life worth living.
     Factories pour smoke into the sky; engine exhausts send fumes and chemical processes pollute the atmosphere with foul smell.
     Governments affirm that pollution of this kind is being diminished by ‘clean air’ campaigns , but for how long must housewives continue to take in their washing covered in sooty particles from being hung in the fresh air? Or must we wait until we are deafened by the increasing noise of a ‘civilized society’? Indeed, many of the young today already require hearing aids, as a consequence of hours of listening to their favourite music with a maximum amplification of sound. Moreover, open fields are replaced with concrete structures and a walk through a wood means a wade through the litter of our society. Our eyes see mounds of different kinds of rubbish to get unpleasant views.
