GREAT TROUBLES (Environmental protection) Our country. Our environment. There are many big and small rivers, green forests, high mountains, lakes and seas in Russia. Our Earth is our home. I think people must take care of our Motherland. There are some laws and decisions on this important subject. We have state organizations which pay attention to this problem. The international conventions pay much attention to the control of pollution too.
There are a lot of industrial enterprises in our country, that’s why we can’t ignore the problem of the protection of our environment. Our main aim is the protection. Our environment must be clean. What must we do for it? We have to control atmospheric and water pollution, to study the man’s influence on the climate. The pollution of the environment influences the life of animals, plants and our human life. If we don’t use chemicals in a proper way we’ll pollute our environment.
Our plants and factories put their waste materials into water and atmosphere and pollute the environment. There are many kinds of transport in our big cities, that is why we must pay attention to the protection of our nature and the health of the people. Radiation. Now it has become one of the main problems. It is not good for health of people. Many people died from radiation some years ago in Chernobyl. It was tragedy.
There is a very useful public commission «Green Peace». Its main task is to combine the people’s efforts for peace and for nature conservation. The people all over the world do everything to protect their nature, to make their country richer, to make their life happier.

Put out food for wild animals in winter.
