There is a lot of environmental pollution these days, such as soil pollution, air pollution, water pollution, and global warming. [1]

Some people try to protect the environment. They join environmental organizations. The WWF(World Wide Fund for Nature), Green Peace, and Friends of the Earth International are representative environmental organizations. [2]

Also they make TV programs and movies about the environment. Such as 아마존의 눈물, 남극의 눈물, The Day After Tomorrow, and The Core etc. To indicate that the environment is in danger. [3]

What should we do the protect the environment? We can begin with simple things: recycling, and using public transportation(bike, bus, the metro, and out feet)





[VERB] If one thing indicates another, the first thing shows that the second is true or exists.

[VERB] If someone such as a lawyer or a politician represents a person or group of people, they act on behalf of that person or group.

[VERB] When a person or organization funds something, they provide money for it.
[NOUN] Funds are amounts of money that are available to be spent, especially money that is given to an organization or person for a particular purpose.

[NOUN] Pollution is the process of polluting water, air, or land, especially with poisonous chemicals.

[NOUN] [oft in names] An organization is an official group of people, for example a political party, a business, a charity, or a club.
