It easier to accomplish all the Eco green job on the mountain area as it is far away for the city pollution. The most straight and fastest way to rebuild the quality of air is to reduce the pollution.
All these wonderful things are given to us by nature. The grace of nature will never be clear, so how can we appreciate it now? Once the nature was so beautiful, the green grass was covered at the whole land, dotted with dark brown earth, like a large oil painting spread throughout the world. Large trees can be seen everywhere. The thick bark is enough to prove the age of this big tree. The tree family rooted on this land and gave birth to new offspring. The nest is everywhere on the tree shrews, and there are even many naughty little squirrels, secretly help the pine cones there! The creek rushed down from the top of the mountain, and there were countless different fish in the clear water, where they jumped and jumped, as if they were free and uncontrollable. Human are looking forward to life like that. At this time, because nature is too much love for people, they decided to fight and hurt their benefactors, no! It is the mother! People broke the ore and broke the sleep of nature. A lot of fishing, so that the cute fish, into the stomach, it sounds very uncomfortable, then who can be? The creek became lonely, because the people’s industrial sewage, the creek became black water. The big tree family was also deeply pulled out. They were reluctant to leave the land. The cruel people actually saw them with a saw. The animals had no home and the grass fell down. Finally, nature is angry. The creatures are angry, they are prepared to retaliate against humans, the ore brings earthquakes, the creeks bring mudslides, the animals begin to attack humans, and as such, the war between nature and humans begins, but it is not worth it, the human actually treating the earth like this. What is the ultimate for people? For your own honor? For your own clothes? Not only nature, but the earth will eventually become an empty shell. Human beings are a bad guy who is ungrateful! The highest state of man and nature is harmony! Its not enough to rely on me alone. We should be united. We should know how to report, and cherish the love that nature has for us. Only in this way will the world be better!
As we all know, global warming problem getting serious year by year. If the problem getting worst and human are ignoring it, one day our earth will be destroying, and human will never get to stay in earth again. If the situation continuing without being solve, between hundred years all human life will become like the movie of wall-e make by Disney studios. The movie is about a rubbish compactors name wall-e grabbing up all the trash of the earth and squeeze it into a bunch of square shape trash. This movie greatly emphasizes the power of green plant. At the movie inside, human survive at a spaceship which can fill up to millions of human and human are relying on robots for the cleaning as well as very simple task such as walking around. They are moving around with sitting on a robot machine and having a small screen in front of their face. They use the screen to communicate with the others. Whatever places they want to go, the machine brings them to. Every simple task of a human was being replace by the robots. They have a big screen at a center which able for the spaceship captain to make announce of the citizen. The captain controls the day and night of the spaceship because the invention of spaceship does not allow the universe light to go through the spaceship. Human inside the spaceship do not exercising around and they are definitely relying everything on the machines and robots. Human there are facing obesity problem. The reason they have to survive at the universe is because earth are full of trash and no human can survive in it as they are no trees and plants anymore. In the movie, wall-e was the only robots remaining in the earth which helps the human to gather all the trash. One day, a robot which helps to detect the present of plant name Eve had been dispatch to the earth. Eve had been scanning around finding for green plants. Searching for green plants was Eve mission. When Eve is scanning around the earth, Eve and Wall-E met together. Wall-E brings Eve to its home to hide from the sand disaster which always occurs in earth. Eve found out the green plant and turn to standby mode. This made Wall-E very worried. A ship later came and collect Eve, Wall-E accidentally clinging inside and follow back to the spaceship. The captain couldnt believe that there was green plant still alive in the earth. This means that this is their chance to get back to earth. Earth is human mother, no matter where we go we still belong there. This is the new hope of captain to get back to earth. The autopilot of the spaceship does not human back to earth, because they understand if humans are returning earth., they were no hope for them anymore. Human already survive in spaceship for thousands of years. The autopilot started to fight back and destroy Eve, Wall-e and the green plant. Unfortunately, they did not success their plan. With the help of captain, they achieve the mission and place the green plant to activate the hyperjump which can return to the earth. The reason that autopilot interrupt their green plant mission because they believe that earth could not be saved. At the end of the movie, Wall-E lose his memory while combating with the pilots and Eve believe that Wall-E could remember her again one day. The human and robots went back to earth and begin a new life there. There started to plant trees, learn how to catch fish, farming and job that human use to do. This movie lets us understand the importance on green plant and protecting our earth environment. We belong to the earth and it is our job to stay clean of the earth and solve the pollution we human had make for these years. Human must cooperate with each other and knowing the dangerous which global warming and pollution can bring. It is a viral matter for human to concentrate on so that the human can still survive in the earth forever.
