赢家还是输家? Winner or Loser?

At the threshold of the 21st century, we are going to embrace an age of opportunities and challenges, which is filled with risks and crises. Looking back on the past experiences, we had made great achievements and advancements on economic and technology. For instance, the invention of Internet and the smart phone have made our life quite different, and the serious diseases and cancers can be controlled by effective medicines. The incomes of ordinary people have been rising steadily. It seems we are the winner at these fields. However, when we are looking into the future, we can not say we are still the winner. The shrinking supplies of fresh water, the climate changing, the disappearing of ozone layer, acid rain and chemical residues in food, have already effect our daily lives. We can not even tell whether our future is still optimistic.

我们跨入21世纪,迎接我们的将是一个机会与挑战并存,风险与危机此起披伏的时代。回顾过去,我们在经济和科技上取得了巨大的成就与发展。例如,因特网的发明与智能手机的出现让我们的生活变得特别,重大疾病与癌症也能得到特效药的控制,普通人的收入也稳定提升。看起来,我们在各个领域都是赢家。但是,当我们展望未来,我们不敢说自己依旧是赢家:可用的淡水资源原来越匮乏,气候变暖,臭氧层消失,酸雨以及食物中的残留农药已经影响到我们的正常生活,我们都不能确定未来是否乐观。

A few days ago, the northeast in China was surrounded by a breaking fog. People even cannot see through the haze of smoke, some school even suspended classes for students’ safety. People have to wear dust marks if they need to go outside. According to the environmentalists, the cause of the fog is the burning of coal, oil and gasoline. What makes the situation worse is that the northeast in China is far away from the sea. There are no winds to blow the fog away. Some environmentalists fear that such situation may happen again in the next few months. We blindly pursuit the growth of economy, but we pollute the environment that we live in. Thus we pay the heavy price for what we have done. Because of the polluted air, our children can not go outside to play; the air we breathe in may even increase the chance of getting lung cancer. It’s time that we should think about whether it’s worth to sacrifice the environment to make more money. We can not even tell whether we are sick. What we leave for our offspring’s should not be an earth that is covered with scratches. Maybe, we are the winner on economical field, but we are definitely the loser on environment.

就在前几天,一场突发的雾霾笼罩了中国的东北部。人们甚至无法在雾霾中看清脚下的路,一些学校因此停了课。人们如果出门,一定得带上口罩。环境学家称,引起雾霾的原因是由于煤炭汽油的焚烧。让此情况加剧的是东北三省远离海岸,没有风把雾霾吹散。有些环境学家担心雾霾还会在未来的几个月内出现。我们盲目的追求经济增长,却污染了自己赖以生存的环境。我们为此付出了极大的代价。由于空气污染,我们的孩子不能外出游玩,我们吸入的空气会增加得肺癌的风险。这时候,我们该想一想:为了赚钱是否值得把环境给搭进去。我们甚至说不清自己是不是病了。我们留个自己后代的不该是个伤痕累累的地球。或许,我们在经济上大获全胜。但是,在环境上,我们满盘皆输。
