READING SKILLS: Read these short texts and try to remember the threats to the environment…. On the basis of: Kurtyka A. Prove Your Point, Egis Press.
Toxic chemicals threaten animals. Toxic chemicals released by industry pollute rivers, land and the air. They threathen the health of wildlife. Because of chemical contamination animals suffer.
Deforestation: Deforestation destroys the wildlife. It causes the extinction of many species and reduces biodiversity. Trees absorb carbon dioxide so less trees means increased global warming.
The ozone layer depletion The ozone layer that protects the Earth from the harmful ultrviolet (UV) radiation is damaged by CFCs (chloro-fluorocarbons). CFCs are substances that come from fridges, aerosol cans and other products.
Carbon dioxide Carbon dioxide and other harmful gases which are produced by factories, cars and power stations increase the greenhouse effect, which has a negative impact on global warming.
Rubbish/litter People produce more and more rubbish and waste in their households. They drop litter in forests, near rivers and on roadsides. People also drop litter on the streets polluting their neighbourhoods.
