This document is an article adapted from Science, the 17th of August 2001. Its author is James Randerson. It deals with health benefits from greenhouse gas curbs.
Thearticle can be divided in three parts. The first: title which resumes the subject. It’s at the top of the document.
The second part is a cartoon on the left hand side of the text which shows a manwho breathes in a tank. In this tank there is a tree. Around this man, there is nothing apart from much of smoke.
The third part is the text. It can be divided in four paragraphs. In the first, theauthor quotes information given by US researchers. If we reduce our gas consumption, we will avoid much of diseases.
The second paragraph describes how US researchers have found this conclusion:they made estimations in four major cities in South America, in implementing simples measures like restricting traffic or cleaning up power stations which provoke the greenhouse effect.
In the thirdparagraph, we can know an estimation of those measures: greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by thirteen per cent and 64,000 premature deaths would be prevented. Moreover, they would prevent 65,000cases of chronic bronchitis and so 37 million days of sick leave.
Finally, the fourth paragraph deals with aims of those US researchers: they hope that their research will make the public aware of thebenefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to human health and climate changes.
I think their solutions are very interesting. Power stations are very dangerous for everybody. But it’sdifficult to destroy those stations! So we can clean up but it’s not enough.
Moreover, we can reduce traffic but many people need of their cars! We can institute a charge to enter in major cities, ora tax to big trucks which pollute a lot.
We can make advertisements to make people aware of the benefits to drive an LPG’S car. In fact, this fuel pollutes less than diesel and it’s less...
