Our surroundings are being polluted fast and man's present efforts can not prevent it. Tim。e is bringing us more people, and more people will bring us more industry, more cars, larger citi。es and the growing use of man-made materi。als.
What can explain and solve this problem?。 The fact is that pollution is caused by man -- by his desire for a modern way of life. We make "increasing industrialization" our chief ai。m.So we are often ready to offer everything: clean air。, pure water。, good food, our health and the future of our children.There is a constant flo。w of people from the countryside into the cities, eager for the benefits of our modern s。ociety。. But as our tec。h。nological achievements have grow。n in the last twenty
years, pollution has become a serious problem.
Isn't it time we stopped to ask o。urselves where we are going-- and why? It makes one think of the story about the airline pilot who to。ld his passengers over the loudspeaker,"。I've。 some good news and some bad new。s. The good news is t。hat we're making rapid progress at 530 miles per h。our. The
bad ne。ws is that we're lost。 and don't know where we're going. "。 The sad fact is that this becomes a true story when speaking of our modern society.
